Slots Review – Gonzo’s Quest

Software Platform : Net Entertainment


Gonzo’s Quest is one of Net Entertainment’s Platinum slot games which are carefully developed to appeal to online slots players. The graphics are fabulous and rather than the traditional spinning of reels, this game uses Net Entertainment’s Avalanche feature where the symbols fall into place from above.

This online slot game is based on Gonzalo Pizzaro, a famous Spanish conquistador who lived in the sixteenth century. The symbols are a variety of ornate carvings with an Aztec theme and include the Fire Idol, Alligator Idol and the Bird Idol. As part of the Avalanche feature when a winning combination is formed the symbols that form part of that win explode and are replaced by other symbols providing even more opportunities to win.

Pay Lines and Betting Options

Gonzo’s Quest has five reels and there are 20 active pay lines on each spin. Unlike a lot of online slot games you cannot adjust the number of lines you play – it is fixed on 20. It is always best to play maximum lines anyway so this is not really a problem. You can adjust the bet level, which affects the number of coins per line and the value of the coins too. These betting options make this a suitable online slot game for low-rollers and high-rollers.

Wild Symbol

The wild symbol in this online slot game is a golden question mark. It substitutes for all other symbols apart from the free fall symbol.

Scatters, Free Spins and Bonus Rounds

There is no scatter symbol at Gonzo’s Quest and no bonus round as such either. The main feature of this slot game is permanently in play – the Avalanche feature where winning combinations explode and new symbols fall into place. When this happens, a multiplier is added to any subsequent win from the new symbols.

The free fall feature is the equivalent of free spins and is triggered when three or more free fall symbols appear on an active pay line. 10 free falls are awarded with a multiplier applied of up to 15. Further free games can be won during the free fall feature.


There is no jackpot at Gonzo’s Quest which is slightly disappointing. However, the Avalanche feature offers so many opportunities for winning this is a slot game that you simply have to play.
