Gonzo's Quest is a celebrated 5-reel slot from the Swedish game developer NetEnt. It all takes place in the exotic Peruvian forest, with an astonishing intro of Gonzo starting his adventure by escaping his boat by stealth. The Pizarro brothers that took over the Incan Empire would have loved to play this slot! Sadly for them, there were no online casinos available by the 15th century.

It turns out that when you get to the lost city of El Dorado, there are five reels with twenty paylines waiting to make you rich. When this slot came out in 2013, it introduced the avalanche feature, also called "cascading wins," which consists of replacing winning symbols with random blocks which activates a multiplier, generating half a free spin.

Consecutive winning symbols landing in the right place will add to the multiplier bonus and dramatically increase your earnings. Wild symbols will help you complete even more combinations.

Players Review

NetEnt did it again! Make sure you watch the full intro for a fresh experience into the forest. This slot is one of my favourites.

Start by making the symbols fall the traditional way and wait for the blocks to align in any of the 20 paylines. Due to its high volatility, it takes a little while to enter the free spin mode, which is granted by getting x3 Free golden fall symbols shaped as a round Inti amulet. The Incan god will considerably exploit the slot machine's payouts. It takes me around 150-200 spins to get there, but it's definitely worth the wait.

Apart from this bonus stage, it is the multiplier feature that hooked me up. Every win is an opportunity to activate 2x, 3x and 5x of your bets. When you get to the 5x multiplier, you'll get to see Gonzo perform a moonwalk that is just hilarious -considering Michael Jackson was born close to 500 years later.

Although the sound effects are pretty awesome, and the music at the Free Falls is good, the only thing that I would add to this slot is some entertaining music in normal spin mode. Instead, there are just some sounds of the wild. Wild symbols come out pretty often, so that's great too.
