Gonzos Quest Megaways review

Theme and Storyline

Gonzo’s Quest is a classic slot in which Gonzo, a conquistador, must hunt through Inca treasures with the player. Here, that classic is given the Megaways overhaul.

The theme remains mostly the same with Gonzo in the bottom left encouraging the player or sympathising with their disappointment. The setting is similar with the wall of Aztec art making up the reels and the deep, impenetrable jungle surrounding both the reels and Gonzo.

Whether Gonzo gets out of that jungle with anything to show for it is down to the trio of Lady Luck, the Amazon jungle, and the player.

Graphics, Sounds and Animations

The Gonzo’s Quest slot was a pretty one even before the makeover to work with the Megaways system. The slot’s visuals shine, with the 3D rendering of Gonzo and his environs jumping out of the screen. The reels are a wall of Aztec symbols carved in stone, a fact which is beautifully emphasised by the sound effects.

The music is a tribal set of percussion sounds, along with some ambient jungle sounds to give things some atmosphere.

Everything is neatly animated. Nothing too flashy, but all solid and detailed with a good sense of timing and weight. Gonzo himself is fully animated, but as he’s small and kept to one side, he isn’t too distracting.

Gameplay

Gonzo’s Quest Megaways uses the Megaways system for its reels. This is an any way wins system that randomises the number of symbols per reel.

"Any way wins" means that winning combinations are formed by matching symbols anywhere on consecutive reels starting from the leftmost reel. The randomised symbols means each reel can have between two and seven symbols, making for up to 117,649 ways to win.

A cascade system removes winning symbols. New symbols then drop down from above, and any new wins are calculated. Each cascade increases the multiplier. The multiplier then resets when the spin ends.

Wilds, Bonuses and Free Spins

The Wild symbol substitutes for all symbols including the Free Spin symbol. Additionally, Wilds do not get removed during the destruction phase of the cascade.

The Free Spin symbols, unlike many slots, are not Scatters. The player must land three or more in the same manner as a regular symbol to trigger the free spins.

The free spin bonus starts at 9 free spins for three Free Spin symbols. The player is awarded an additional +3 spins for each Free Spin symbol over three. During the free spins, the cascade multipliers increase. The first win has a multiplier of x3 applied to it. Subsequent cascades get x6, x9, x15 with all cascades after that getting the x15 multiplier applied.

Bet Sizes, RTP and Variance

The return to player of this game is 95.77%, a little below our yardstick for average of roughly 96%.

The range of bets on the site we tested ran from a minimum bet per spin of $/£/€0.20 up to a maximum of $/£/€4.00 per spin.

The volatility of this game is at the high end of medium, which would make it a reasonable match for our preferred slot machine strategies if the RTP were a bit more impressive. Our slot strategies target the highest possible volatility and RTP.

Conclusion

The RTP is a little low. Though the volatility is a lot closer to what we would want, together they just don’t work all that well with our preferred strategies.

However, in most other ways, this is a top notch slot and the popularity of the Gonzo’s Quest franchise is unsurprising. The graphics are excellent, the world-building is on point, and Gonzo himself is a fun little cartoon avatar for the player to relate to.

The bonuses aren’t mind-blowing, but they provide nice variety and the cascade system keeps the pacing of gameplay engaging.

If you aren’t too worried about the vig, this is a solid slot.
