Gonzo’s Quest Megaways Gameplay

 Gonzo’s Quest Megaways, is the second Megaways update to a popular NetEnt slot, the first being the quirky slot Piggy Riches. As is usual on Megaways slots, each reel can contain from 2 and up to 7 symbols on each round. You play with a minimum of 64 win ways that can go up to the maximum number of more than 100,000 win ways when each reel contains 7 symbols. On the Megaways version of this classic, you find the same symbols of stone statues and masks on the reels, as well as Gonzo himself who you will find in front of the reels cheering you on.

Game Features

 Gonzo’s Quest Megaways comes with additional features compared to the original.

Avalanche feature

 Just like on the original Gonzo’s Quest Megaways operaes with the Avalanche feature. Due to this feature the reels fall rather than spin into place. In addition to that, the symbols of any winning combination you play, disappear and make way for new symbols for an additional win chance within the same round. If you hit another winning combination the symbols disappear again. This process continues within the same round as long as you play a win.

Multiplier

 Consecutive wins come with a multiplier that increases with each win up to x5 in the base game. In Free Spins your mutliplier can go up into double digits.

Wild symbol

Like on the original, the question mark is the Wild symbol. On the Megaways version a maximum of 2 Wild symbols can appear in one round; one on the first three reels and the second on the three most right reels. On Gonzo’s Quest Megaways the symbol substituting icon functions as an Unbreakable Wild. This means that rather than exploding like on the original when it is part of a winning combination, the Unbreakable Wild remains in place for the next round. This function gives your chances to hit winnings a considerable boost.

Earthquake feature

This feature is triggered at random. This function quakes lower value symbols of the grid and replaces them with higher value symbols for increased chances to hit bigger wins.

Scatter symbol

The sun disc is the Scatter symbol that activates Free Spins or Free Falls since Gonzo’s Quests functions with the Avalanche feature. As per usual you need to play at least 3 Scatters in one round to trigger Free Spins.

Free Spins

Once activated, you get the following number of Free Falls depending on the number of Scatters you play in the triggering round:

  • 3 Scatter symbols grants you 9 free falls
  • 4 Scatter symbols grants you 12 free falls
  • 5 Scatter symbols grants you 15 free falls

In Free Fall mode the multiplier applied to consecutive wins can go up to x15.

Royal Wheel Gamble

This feature gives you the chance to win a greater number of free falls by spinning the Wheel before you play your first free round. As you can guess from the name, it is a gamble. You can end up with fewer free rounds that should be allocated to you based on the number of Scatters you played. However, this is a great feature for players who love some increased volatility and excitement.

How does Gonzo’s Quest Megaways Compare to the Original

The Megaways update comes with the same graphics design as the original, but they do appear a lot sharper. The grid has been expanded from the 5×3 size of the original. Gonzo’s Quest Megaways offers considerably more win ways compared to the original that comes with a standard 20 pay lines. Although highly innovative at the time Gonzo’s Quest came out, the original has limited features. The Megaways version comes with additional functions for even more adventurous slot game action.

Verdict

Gonzo’s Quest Megaways is an excellent update to the original. The graphics and animations look stunning and the game offers something new as well as something familiar. Just like the original, Gonzo’s Quest Megaways is a medium to high volatility slot, so smaller players should keep an eye on their bankroll. The Megaways function is incredibly popular with players and it is great that NetEnt updates existing popular slot to give them a Megaways make-over for a new and improved slot gaming experience.
