Gonzo’s Quest was the first-ever online slot to showcase the Avalanche feature, which replaces the traditional wheel spin. Symbols cascade down the screen like tumbling rocks, and any symbols which form a part of a winning line will crumble to dust, leaving gaps to be filled by yet more falling symbols. Ultimately, this is a neat graphic way of demonstrating that you’ve got the chance to win time and time again from a single spin.
There’s also an Avalanche Multiplier feature. When you achieve a winning combination, the Avalanche Multiplier Meter comes into place. Your first Avalanche win gets a 1x multiplier, with each successive win increasing the multiplier up to a maximum of 5x.
Free Falls feature
The free fall scatter symbol is vital in Gonzo’s Quest. Landing a free fall scatter simultaneously on reels 1, 2 and 3 will take you to the Free Falls feature. This entitles you to 10 free spins, during which the Avalanche Multiplier Meter can reach up to 15x. During Free Falls, it’s possible to win further free spins (up to 20) if you land three scatters on the reels.
Gonzo’s Quest RTP percentage
Gonzo’s Quest’s return to player percentage has been measured at 95.97%, which is quite low for a video slots game. Approximately 65.3% of RTP is paid out during the base game, with an additional 30.7% being dished out as part of the Free Falls feature. Win frequency sits at 41% during the base game and is slightly higher at over 54% during Free Falls.
NetEnt takes a platform-agnostic approach to its game design. The team has recently overhauled Gonzo’s Quest to now be enjoyed on mobile devices in the same way it has been enjoyed on desktop devices for almost a decade. Regardless of whether you’re playing via a browser or a dedicated app, and regardless of your operating system of choice, you’ll always be able to enjoy the same seamless slots action on Gonzo’s Quest.
