Gonzo’s Quest contains the Avalanche Feature that is showing up in more and more slots from NetEnt. Instead of rolling on a reel, the symbols ‘fall’ into place as solid blocks or idols. Whenever you have a winning combination, the symbols (idols) involved are reduced to rubble and the symbols above them drop down to take their place. This means that any winning combo creates the possibility of even more combos when the symbols are replaced.
Another factor to consider is the Avalanche Multiplier. When a winning combination lands, the winning symbols crumble and the Multiplier is increased by a factor of one. If the idols that fall into place result in another winning combination, the Multiplier will move on up, up to a maximum of X5. The Avalanche feature finishes once no more winning combinations are available or if the Avalanche Multiplier is at X5.
As mentioned, reel symbols used in Gonzo’s Quest are all different types of idol. These include the Moon Idol, Fire Idol, Fish Idol, Snake Idol and Bird Idol. The best-paying symbol is the Moon Idol, which will earn you 2,500 credits if you spin in 5 of them in an active pay-line, although it could be worth 12,500 credits if you are lucky enough to land that particular combo when the Avalanche Multiplier is at X5! The next best symbol is the Fire Idol, which will be worth 1,000 coins if you spin 5 of them into a pay-line.
There is no specific Bonus Round available in Gonzo’s Quest but a Free Falls Round can be unlocked. This is achieved by having three of the Free Falls Scatter symbols fall into play at any one time on consecutive reels. Unusually, the Question Mark Wild Symbol can substitute for the Scatters in order to make a winning combination. The 10 Free Falls will play out automatically.
The Return to Player (RTP) for Gonzo’s Quest is 96%, which is standard value for a Video Slot. While the lack of a Progressive Jackpot is an obvious drawback, the Avalanche Feature does make for compelling gameplay and the Avalanche Multiplier also throws up the possibility of some very big combinations and big pay outs. Gonzo’s Quest is a type of slot we can expect to see more of in the future.
