Gonzita’s Quest Slot Review
Aah Gonzo, the world’s most famous gaming conquistador, and one of the most beloved characters in the whole of the slot-o-sphere. The star of Gonzo’s Quest, Gonzo’s Quest Megaways and Gonzo’s Gold, good old Gonzo is by now familiar to online slot players everywhere.
What we didn’t know, however, is that the old adventurer has a female counterpart. Is she his wife? Daughter? Sister? Who knows, but whoever she is, Gonzita is here to take players on another expedition, and she’s very excited about it.
Brought to you by Red Tiger, the setting for Gonzita’s Quest is immediately recognisable to fans of the series. The game takes place in what appears to be an Amazonian temple, looking out over a backdrop of leafy forests and carved stone structures, with a bongo-laden soundtrack helping to set the scene.
Those embarking on this treasure hunt will find a slightly simplified version of Gonzo’s Quest, featuring the familiar Avalanche mechanic, and an exciting bonus round offering a max win payout potential of 2,580x your stake.
Gonzita’s Quest Slot How to Play
The South American slot’s action takes place on a 5×3 layout, featuring a total of 20 paylines. It also has the Avalanche mechanic, meaning that whenever a win is recorded, all winning symbols explode out of existence, making way for new or existing symbols to drop and fill the reels.
This process continues until a win fails to hit, bringing the possibility of exciting chain-reaction wins. The wins themselves are recorded for three or more connecting symbols on a pay line, beginning at reel number one.
The side-facing stone carvings of Bird, Snake, Alligator, and Fish masks make up the game’s low-paying symbols, paying out 2-8x for five in a row.
More rewarding are the front-facing purple, gold, green, and blue masks, which offer wins of 15-125x for a sequence of five.
A little disappointingly, there are no Wild or Multiplier symbols in the base game, but events are brightened up by the popular Avalanche feature.
Gonzita’s Quest on Mobile
Gonzita’s Quest employs the latest HTML5 technology and is available to play on all mobile devices. The visuals come over slightly better on the PC version of the game, but all of the gameplay and features transfer across well to the small screen.
Gonzita’s Quest RTP and Volatility
Gonzita’s Quest offers a peak RTP of 95.66% – a little below the industry average of 96%. You should also be aware that this is a customisable RTP, and some operators may select a lower level. Always check the information section of the game to discover the RTP setting at your casino of choice.
Falling into the high volatility category, this can, at times, feel like a treacherous expedition, but when those wins do come around, they can be particularly rewarding.
Gonzita’s Quest Slot Bonus Round and Free Spins
Free Spins Feature
Stone slabs containing a multiplier represent the game’s Scatter Symbols. Landing three of these anywhere on the screen will send you and Gonzita into the game’s feature – much to the delight of the game’s titular character. The central reel opens to reveal a blinding golden light; Gonzita claps her hands with glee, and ventures inside….
During the Free Spins Bonus, the central reel is replaced by a golden throne, as Gonzita takes her seat to watch the action unfold. You are awarded three free spins to begin the round, with each spin featuring only stone slabs – either blank or containing a Multiplier. Any Multiplier-containing slab that lands will reset the spins tally to three. Blank slabs explode away, whilst all Multiplier slams remain in place for subsequent spins.
Should a reel become filled, the Multiplier totals will be removed and added to the tally beneath Gonzita’s throne. That reel will then be upgraded to a higher-value Golden Slabs Reel. Fill a Golden Slabs Reel with Multipliers, and the process will repeat, with the reel then becoming a max value Diamond Slabs Reel. The Multipliers contained within each of the reel levels are as follows.
- Stone Slabs – 1x, 2x, 5x or 7x your stake.
- Golden Slabs – 10x, 25x, 50x and 75x your stake
- Diamond Slabs – 100x, 250x, 500x and 750x your stake.
The round continues until your three spins run out, at which point any Multipliers in play will be combined with the total beneath Gonzita’s throne and applied to your stake. That’s worth a dance of joy, and Gonzita duly provides one with what looks to be the explorer’s version of the Macarena! Feel free to join in at home.
