Gonzo's Quest Megaways
Everyone’s favourite hairy Spaniard is back in the latest iteration of what is quite possibly NetEnt’s greatest ever online slot game, Gonzo’s Quest.
Gonzo’s Quest Megaways retains all the charm of the 2013 original with an absolutely massive bonus of having 117,649 ways to win thrown into the mix thanks to the Megaways mechanic.
With the Avalanche and Free Fall features that made the first game so popular thrown into the mix, alongside two HUGE new features, this game is undoubtedly on course to be an even bigger hit than the original if that’s even possible!
Gonzo’s Quest Megaways has seen an incredible upgrade in terms of graphics, which is to be expected considering 7 years has passed since the original game was released.
The basic concept of the original game remains in place, the reels are set in front of an ageing temple within the ruins of the lost city of El Dorado. Gonzo also remains stood to the left of the reels, however in this iteration of the game he has a whole new repertoire of moves including a snazzy Michael Jackson-style moonwalk whenever the player registers a big win.
The symbols have also had a revamp, with more intricate masks taking the place of high paying symbols whilst low paying symbols are stones carved into the shape of small heads.
In terms of how Gonzo's Quest Megaways sounds, everything from the original Gonzo's Quest slot has been retained. So you'll be able to enjoy calming ambient jungle sounds!
Up to 7 symbols may land on each of the game’s 6 reels at any time during the base game, giving players a maximum of 117,649 ways to win in total. Up to two wilds may land on the reels in the same spin, one for the first three reels and another for the second three.
Just like the original game every single time a new symbol drops into play a multiplier climbs up by one in the following order: 1x, 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x. Wins after the fifth drop in the chain are capped at 5x. During the Free Fall feature this can reach an impressive 15x.
If you have played the original, or any Megaways slot then you should know exactly what to expect, lots of big, exciting, multiplied wins! Of course, this is all boosted by the fact that new symbols drop into place thanks to NetEnt’s iconic Avalanche feature.
When you throw in the new features Red Tiger have added, greatly boosting players chances of registering winning spins, then we have to say that this game is well worth a spin as long as you’re comfortable with a volatile slot that takes a little bit longer to warm up than others.
With an RTP of 95% and a very impressive maximum win of 20,000x your initial stake, it's clear that this wonderful Red Tiger Gaming reboot is well worth a spin.
We were absolutely thrilled when we discovered Red Tiger Gaming, one of the most talented online slot developers in the business, were taking on the challenge of recreating Gonzo’s Quest in Megaways format for 2020, and we’re pleased to say we’re delighted with their efforts!
When someone new is tasked with revamping something so beloved as Gonzo’s Quest there’s always the chance mistakes can be made. But we’re delighted that the award-winning studio has taken absolutely everything we loved about the original game and have made it even more exciting and lucrative, without reinventing the wheel!
