We had to wait for a while, but now he’s finally here: Gonzo’s Quest Megaways

The joyful Spanish explorer Gonzo that robbed the Aztec people of all their gold with a cheeky smile is back!

Red Tiger Gaming has so far given two classic Netent slots a Megaways makeover: Piggy Riches Megaways and Gonzo’s Quest Megaways are the first.

With Gonzo’s Quest Megaways, hopes are up sky-high: the original Gonzo’s Quest is still one of Netent’s most popular slots games of all time.

And the Megaways mechanism is and remains a rock-solid formula. Because of the many ways to win, the avalanche symbols and, in this case, the progressive multipliers, both the variance and potential can be massively ramped up.

For example, with Gonzo’s Quest Megaways, you can make up to 20,000 x the total bet. This is considerably more than the payout of the original game. Profits of around 1,500 x the stake were the maximum achievable.

Gonzo’s Quest features and gameplay

Let’s look at the design first. All symbols have been revamped and look genuinely sublime.

Our friend Gonzo is still around and comments on the gameplay from his trusted spot on the screen (bottom left). Sometimes he cheers you on; other times, he proudly shows you how much gold he stole from the locals.

Moreover, Red Tiger Gaming has kept it pretty straightforward:

  • There are 6 reels with a maximum of 7 symbols per reel.
  • There is no additional “right to left” reel at the top of the screen.
  • The maximum number of Megaway is 117,649.
  • Winning combinations disappear to make way for new tumbling symbols.
  • The premium symbols are worth between 1 x and 15 x the stake for a 6-of-a-kind
  • Low symbols pay out a maximum of between 0.5 x and 0.8 x the bet.
  • The theoretical payout rate is 96.

After each winning “cascade,” the multiplier is increased by one step: from x1 to x2 to x3 up to a maximum of x5. This is similar to the original Gonzo Quest.

New to this online slot is the sticky wilds (the question marks): they ‘stick’ on the playing field as long as there are winning combinations. These wilds are especially useful to activate the free spins bonus since they also function as the bonus scatter.

Earthquake Feature

Once in awhile, the screen starts to shake, and so does Gonzo: this announces the Earthquake Feature.

All low symbols are now taken out of the game once, increasing the chance of super big wins.

Free spins bonus

It may take a while to grab the free spins bonus, so make sure you have enough balance and don’t bet too high.

Three or more of the famous scatters (the golden masks) activate the free spins bonus. The scatters must drop from left to right on consecutive reels, so that is quite the challenge.

You are awarded a minimum of 9 free spins when you spin three scatters. Each additional scatter yields +3 free spins. Since there are six reels, you can hit up to 9 extra free spins for a total of 18 free spins.

During the free spins, the progressive multipliers tripled: x3, x6, x9 and x15.

When you manage to form an excellent series of winning combinations, your balance can be launched like a rocket.

It is possible to retrigger the free spins.

Our verdict on Gonzo’s Quest Megaways

The Gonzo’s Quest Megaways game is going to be a massive Megaways blockbuster, that’s for sure.

Red Tiger Gaming has played it pretty safe and actually “just” developed a Megaways version of the original video slot.

But a Megaways version that is more beautiful, more prominent and potentially much more profitable than the original at that. And, seeing our adventurer Gonzo moonwalking up and down the playing field like Michael Jackson when you truck gold, is priceless.

In short: with this video slot, you get the very best of both worlds: Gonzo’s familiar gameplay combined with the rock-solid Megaways concept.

Hence our solid star rating:
