A 5 Reel Adventure Slot
The slot setup in Gonzo’s Quest may not look familiar but it is based on the classic NetEnt arrangement of five reels with 20 paylines. In this game, each reel symbol is a stone block. Instead of spinning reels, the blocks fall from above and tumble into place. In addition to the novel tumbling reels, the game also includes a number of bonus features in the form of a wild symbol a multiplying avalanche feature and free falls (free spins).
On the stone reels, players will find a number of faces carved into the stone. Some of the highest paying symbols include blue stone face, the green stone face, the brown stone face and the purple stone face. The lower paying symbols are all faces of the Mayan gods carved into the stone blocks.
Gonzo’s Avalanche Feature
One of the main features in Gonzo’s Quest is the avalanche feature. Whenever a winning combination is formed, the blocks that are used in the combination explode and tumble out of the screen. The blocks are replaced with more symbol blocks that could possibly lead to more winning combinations. During the avalanche feature, every time a winning combination is achieved the multiplier will increase by 1x. The multiplier will continue to increase up to a maximum of 5x. As soon as there is no winning combination, the multiplier will drop back down to 1x.
Golden Sun Wild Symbol
The wild symbol in Gonzo’s Quest is the block with the question mark on the front. In this game, the wild symbol can be used to substitute for any of the other standard reel symbols in order to form a winning combination. The highest paying symbol in this game is actually the blue carved face symbol. The standard payout for all five blue carved faces is 2500 coins. However with a 15 x multiplier this can increase to a very impressive 37 500 coins if players in the USA can trigger the payout in the free spin round.
Free Falls Bonus Feature
In Gonzo’s Quest the scatter symbol is the golden sun symbol. This symbol is used to trigger the free fall round. To activate the free fall round, players must land 3 or more scatter symbols in succession from left to right on the reels. Once the free fall round has been triggered, players will be rewarded with 10 free games. During the free fall round, the avalanche feature is still in play but with higher multipliers. The first avalanche starts at three times and goes all the way up to a 15x multiplier on the 4th avalanche.
