Gonzo’s Quest was first launched by NetEnt in 2011, and, to date is still one of the developer’s most popular releases. With the acquisition of Red Tiger, NetEnt have decided to give their classic title an exciting makeover, utilizing the Megaways game engine.
Gonzo’s Quest Megaways vital statistics
The original real money pokie has received a dramatic facelift but remains true to the original title, with sharper and crisper visuals.
The integration of Megaways has transformed the slot’s layout, giving players 6 reels, with 2-7 symbols per reel. Once the reels start spinning, you will have anywhere from 64 to 117,649 ways to win. The initial 2011 release had an Avalanche mechanic, making the move to the Megaways cascade mechanic a simple matter.
As far as features go, Gonzo’s Quest Megaways has plenty in store for you in both the main and bonus games. The game’s high volatility is justified by its potential, a massive 20,000x your bet.
Under the hood
With the Avalanche mechanic, when a winning combination appears, the symbols involved are removed from the grid and new ones will drop into the empty spaces. This can lead to new winning combos and repetition of the process.
Each new Avalanche win will boost the multiplier value which can go up to 5x. The randomly triggered Earthquake feature destroys all low-value icons, allowing only high-paying symbols to appear in their place.
Question mark symbols that appear on the reels are Unbreakable Wilds that stay on the reels even as part of winning combinations. The Free Spins bonus round gives you 9, 12, or 15 spins, depending on the number of Free Fall symbols that land. When this feature is active, you will have the choice between claiming spins and gambling them on the Royal Wheel.
NetEnt’s revived classic, Gonzo’s Quest Megaways will be released on 23 July 2020.
