Gomzo’s Quest: The Search for Eldorado is one of NetEntertainment’s most popular games from their impressive portfolio. Set in Peru, the story behind this online video slot game is that a team of Spanish Explorers are searching for Eldorado, the lost city of gold. However, one of the team members (Gonzo) has plans of his own…and jumps ship, taking the precious map with him. The graphics in this game are incredible and the sound effects complement the Amazonian setting. It’s easy to see why this 5 reel, 20 pay line game is so incredibly popular.
Gonzo’s Quest slot uses the Avalanche feature on its reels, rather than the traditional spinning method. You may have come across this before in a few other games; Pyramid: Quest for Immortality is an example of a game that uses this feature. Basically, instead of the reels spinning, the symbols fall into place, and when a winning combination occurs, the symbols explode and vanish, resulting in the remaining symbols – and new symbols – falling into place. This in turn can lead to yet another win, and so on…. Until no new wins occur.
In Gonzo’s Quest there is an Avalanche Multiplier which means for every successive avalanche, your multiplier will increase. There is a meter at the top of the reels; you can see this increasing with each multiplier from x1 to a maximum of x5. If you’re lucky enough to keep landing winning combinations, you could potentially win quite a lot on the x5 multiplier.
The main feature of the game is the Free Fall bonus. There are golden Free Fall symbols to watch out for; 3 of these landing on a bet line will trigger 10 Free Falls (these are essentially free spins). Additional free falls can be triggered and multipliers are even higher during this bonus round.
Other symbols within the game are the Wild (the question mark symbol) which substitutes for all other symbols, and the rest of the symbols are made up of Mayan themed icons, which fits nicely with the game theme.
As expected, this is yet another top quality game from NetEnt. The main feature – the Free Falls – don’t occur as often as I’d like (or perhaps my luck has just been poor), but I really enjoy the avalanche feature, with the increasing multipliers as an added bonus. Visually this game is superb too; you absolutely must try it at least once.
