Gonzo’s Quest Megaways Bitcoin Slot Review
It’s hard to believe that it was 2011 since the original Gonzo’s Quest was released. Since then, it has reached legendary status, so it’s no surprise that in July 2020, Netent brought it back as Gonzo’s Quest Megaways. This is an up to 117,649 Megaways slot, played on 6 reels with a massive jackpot of 20,000x bet!
Gonzo’s Quest Megaways centres around the Spanish explorer named Gonzo, who is looking for the treasures of the lost golden city of El Dorado. The slot has silky smooth animation, with great artwork and tribal soundtrack. From the jungles of South America, you can hear all sorts of native sounds. The regular symbols are composed of a total of 9 rock carvings, divided into 5 gods at the top-end and 4 additional animals or figures at the bottom end.
Turning towards the features, we begin with the biggest, which is the MegawaysTM, where each spin can deliver a random number of symbols per reel, up to seven. The more symbols appear, the higher the number of MegawaysTM. The slots uses a cascading reel mechanic where symbols fall into position rather than spun. On any winning round, the symbols that took part in that spin explode, triggering an avalanche where symbols above fall to fill in the gaps. This can continue in a loop until no new wins are achieved. On each consecutive avalanche, a multiplier increases to 2x, then 3x and finally 5x until the end of the feature. Wilds involved in a win do not explode like other symbols and are called unbreakable wilds.
Next, you’ll find that the playing area may randomly shake during the randomly-triggered Earthquake Feature. All low-paying symbols are destroyed and replaced with high-paying symbols for a respin.
Three (3) Free Fall spins are activated with 3 Free Fall symbols or 2 Free Fall symbols plus a wild. During the feature, the Avalanche Multiplier increases to 3x, 6x, 9x and 15x.
Netent has optimised Gonzo’s Quest Megaways bitcoin slot for mobile/tablet and desktop. An Android or iOS device is all you need when you’re away from home.
