Gonzo’s Quest The Search for El Dorado is a pokie that takes us back to the early 14th century when Gonzalo Pizarro, a Spanish soldier and adventurer, conquered the Inca Empire. In fact, those of you who find the subject of particular interest, or have maybe read something about it, must have certainly identified many elements in this pokie. Personally speaking, Inca’s history is not one of our biggest assets, and yet we found this pokie very interesting and engaging.
Most, if not all, online casino players have heard of Net Entertainment, the software producer of this pokie and other popular pokies like Jack Hammer. Gonzo’s Quest is considered as a novelty in that it was the first pokie in 3D, as well as having a video introduction just before the actual game begins. For some of you these introductions might be annoying, but you don’t have to worry about it because, of course, you can choose to skip the introductory video.
That Gonzo’s Quest is described as a new generation pokie comes to no surprise to us because it is packed with new features. As a whole, it is totally different from other pokies previously produced by Net Entertainment. The most striking feature that will initially catch your attention is the fact that Gonzo’s Quest hasn’t got an ordinary spinning wheel. Instead you will notice that rocks fall down in their right position.
The feature that makes Gonzo’s Quest one of the most popular pokies is the Avalanche feature. Once you get a winning combination, the symbols making up that combination explode. Symbols above them fall down to take their place, and new symbols appear at the top; just like the old-time favourite video game Tetris used to work. If another winning combination is obtained, the multiplier value increases. This goes on until you don’t get any more winning combinations and the multiplier value can become up to x5 bigger.
Besides this Avalanche feature, there is also the free spins round that is activated once three successive gold symbols, the Free Fall symbols, appear in one line, starting from the leftmost reel. When this happens you will get ten free spin with a maximum multiplier value of x15. It is also good to know that additional Free Falls, that are equivalent to free spins, can be won during a Free Fall round.
Other than that, this pokie has the normal wild symbol, represented by a question mark symbol and functioning just like other wild symbols. This pokie also consists of 20 fixed paylines, which therefore cannot be changed, and you can play with a maximum coin level of five. The coin value ranges from €0. 01 to €0. 50.
Gonzo is strategically located on the left side of the pokie and you might as well enjoy his company while you’re playing. When you advance in the Avalanche steps he will become very happy and excited, and as a result he starts performing various antics. You should be very happy when you see Gonzo doing a moonwalk or spinning with his hat as this means that things are going well for you, and you might be accumulating a nice profit. Should you feel that these animations distract you, or you don’t really like them, you have the option to turn them off.
So now is the time for you to try out this pokie if you want. You will then notice instantly how entertaining it is, and how good its graphics are. One final thing worth mentioning is that graphics quality can be adjusted in order to provide for poor internet connections. Having said that, we’re pretty sure that Gonzo’s Quest will satisfy the requirements of most of you.
