In this iconic slot we meet up with Spanish explorer Gonzo and his quest to find the hidden treasures off the coast of Peru. For anyone who has been around the online casino industry for any length of time will be aware of Gonzo as this lovable character has managed to steal the hearts and minds of many a player.
A classic 5 reel, 20 payline game is on offer here with Gonzo, and this is pretty much where our love for this type of game really came about. What you also get with gonzo is another segment of the ever increasing avalanche feature which has really started to grow on us. It’s a game that will vary between different bankrolls but this ‘little and often’ game really does standout.
The slot includes a number of quirky and interesting headshots from treasures in the lost Inca’s. It’s a real exploration on offer with Gonzo being a character that you get to know well throughout the game. It’s this interaction which leaves it unlike a lot of slots where the characters are really a bi-product of the features on offer. Whilst this isn’t really a game that includes a vast amount of features, the combination of a solid gameplay and likable character gives it more depth than the majority of slots.
The avalanche feature that many of the latest NetEnt games include is something that has massively grown on us over the years. The game just tends to take much more of an exciting spin when this is included as even those tiny wins on games that barely get you half of your bet amount back, can equate to something really big from the avalanche games which keeps you much more involved.
The more avalanches you get – basically winning paylines in a row – the higher your multiplier will be. The first one gets you 1x, the second, 2x, third 3x and fourth 5x your total winnings for each spin.
The free falls game is basically the same as a free spins, except with this you will retain your free falls if you manage to pick up a winning combination. It’s also worth noting that the multiplier works in the free falls game as well paying 3x for one fall, 6x for 2 falls, 9x for 3 falls and 15 times for 4 falls. The free fall symbol to look out for is the gold Inca symbol and you need three of these to activate the bonus game. Additional free falls can also be won during the free fall game.
