Review of the Hugely Popular Gonzo's Quest Online Slot Game
Gonzo's Quest follows the hero of the slot in the quest to find the list city of El Dorado. This is actually a fruitless task seeing as El Dorado is a fictional place, but one you get to know the humorous Gonzo, you'll quickly realize that this probably won't stop him looking! The opening animation to the slot sees Gonzo abscond from his ship and go in search of gold himself, this sequence certainly worth watching! Although billed as a slot, you won't find reels here, as square stone blocks fall into place, giving the slot an original and distinctive air. The slot is played using a freefall system, where many wins can come with just one spin, while you'll also find a free spins bonus round where the wins are greatly enhanced! This excellent slot (along with many titles, some unique and others from the big software houses) can be enjoyed at the 888 Casino.
How you'll win at Gonzo's Quest
At first glance you might think that this real money slot game plays much like any other, as although the look of the slot is different from the norm, you'll win by hitting symbols from left to right on a win line. However, having landed a win, this is where the slot changes. The blocks which had formed part of a win line will now crumble and the blocks from above will now fall into their place, with new blocks filling the top row. This leads to a new configuration where fresh wins can occur, and each and every time you win this will continue, only ending when you don't land a win. To make things even better, each additional win after the initial one will be the subject of an ever increasing multiplier. These multipliers range from 2x through to a maximum of 5x.
Alongside the standard symbols and a wild you'll also find a free fall symbol which acts as a scatter. If you manage to land three or more of these on successive reels you'll enter the free spins bonus round. During this round you'll have 10 free games, starting with an initial multiplier of 3x, however these quickly rise through 6x, 9x and 15x. A run of wins with a multiplier of 15x will quickly see your bankroll to north!
How Gonzo's Quest Works
Gonzo's Quest is effectively a 5 reel slot with a fixed number of 20 win lines. The minimum stake is just 1c per line, but you can play for as much as €2.50 per line, making for a total maximum stake per spin of €50.
The blocks at the game come in a variety of different colors and each has an individual ornate slightly gruesome gargoyle-like creature carved into it. This may not sound ideal but it works perfectly, mainly due to the overall quality of the graphics being so good, with a particular crispness not found elsewhere. The most valuable blocks in pay order are the light blue, orange and red blocks. You'll also find a wild block which will substitute for any other, enabling additional wins and indeed more freefalls!
Gonzo stands to the left of the reels throughout the game and adds a great deal of humor to the game - especially when he starts break dancing (although I'm not sure break dancing was quite invented during Gonzo's era). He also wears a particularly oversized helmet, which he will occasionally spin around on his finger and even use to collect the gold coins which spray down from the slot after a big win, which will once again put a big smile on your face.
The game is set against the backdrop of a golden temple while carvings and trees sit either side of the slot. The accompanying sound is good, which features a subtle jungle-type background sound, an upbeat tune every time a freefall takes place and the exclamations of Gonzo throughout.
Gonzo’s Quest Conclusion
Gonzo’s Quest, which can be played at 888 Casino, is an entertaining, original and eye catching slot. The freefall feature is the highlight of the game and knowing that a single ‘spin’ can earn you win after win after win is always a good thing, but the added knowledge that the multipliers increase after each win only make the game more exciting. The free spins feature plays exactly like the main game, so a little more variety might have been welcome here, although the increased multipliers more than make up for this, with some huge wins promised. The fact that the slot is funny too is only a plus point, making this a game that you certainly should play. Check out Gonzo's Quest for yourself at the top-rated www.888casino.com now!
