It’s been almost seven years since the quirky bearded Spanish explorer known as Gonzo, first graced our screens and ever since that day, he’s remained a firm favourite with the slot players. Powered by NetEnt, Gonzo’s Quest saw players join in with his search for El Dorado – a city which was believed to have been a hiding place for untold wealth!
Safe to say the chap never found it, and that leads us to where we are today – waiting on the imminent arrival of his second attempt at prosperity (let’s hope the poor soul finds it this time!); Gonzo’s Quest Megaways! Scheduled for release on July 23rd, players will be invited on a journey more thrilling than the last, one packed with more ways to win, more cash and more excitement!
Cascading symbols are guaranteed, but the ultimate goal is clear…
…to land the free-fall symbols to enter the dramatic bonus round, where multipliers – more powerful than we’ve seen in the previous title, wait to boost your winnings and your fun! Red Tiger has packed a maximum jackpot into the reel engine of more than 20,000x, but that sum is not applied to your stake, it’s – well, you’re about to find out!
Gonzo’s debut was packed with cascading symbols and multipliers, only the reel engine was no larger than 5×3 and the multipliers only reached 5x, whereas with this latest title, the reel engine has been enhanced to 6×7 with wins on up to 117,649 win ways and with a multiplier of more than 20,000x – and this sum is attached to the win, not your stake!
What’s the difference? Well, let’s just say your bet is £1 and you win 20,000x, your win would become £20K, but say you land a win of £10 (which is easy!) with that top multiplier, the win would become a staggering £200K!eh rules do state you can only win up to £250K, but that is phenomenal for a slot machine!
If the previews are anything to go by, this is going to be one heck of a popular game and it bears all the hallmarks of the previous release, only with a lot of extras, like enhanced wilds! When the fiery wilds land, they will remain locked in place until the spin ends and ultimately, they will help land the bonus spins feature!
Unlike other Megaways titles, the wilds in this one can act as the bonus symbol too and when you have four anywhere in view, you’re granted access to the best feature of all with 12 initial free play games. Gonzo escapes into the reel engine to gather as much cash as possible, with the assistance of wilds, mystery symbols and increasing multipliers!
Will you be giving this one a go? There’s not long to wait now! Keep your eyes peeled for its launch across the NetEnt network of online casinos from July 23rd.
