One of the most highly anticipated slots of 2020 has finally arrived! Gonzo’s Quest Megaways is here, and it’s packed full of goodness. 117,649 ways to win, Avalanche Multipliers, Unbreakable Wilds, Earthquakes, Free Fall Free Spins and last, but certainly not least, the potential to win 20,000x your bet – it’s no wonder we’re excited! Let’s dive in…
Much like with the original Gonzo’s Quest, Gonzo’s Quest Megaways follows Gonzo, the Spanish Explorer, as he makes his way through jungles in search of gold, cascades (or avalanches as we come to know them in this slot), big multipliers and bigger wins.
This theme continues into the symbols. The lowest paying symbols are different coloured rocks with drawings etched into them. The most lucrative of these still only pays 0.4x bet for six of a kind. The premium symbols each are a different face, with the highest paying being the grey mask, which pays 7.5x bet for six of a kind.
The wild symbol is unbreakable, meaning it will remain until no other wins are possible, and it substitutes for every symbol including the free fall symbol. This is extremely rare in a slot, as usually wild symbols substitute for all symbols except scatters. Up to two wilds can land on any spin; 1 on the first three reels, and 1 on the last three reels.
Gonzo’s Quest Megaways is a lot like the original Gonzo’s Quest slot. After each win there is an avalanche, with your first win multiplier starting at x1. After the second, third, and fourth win the multiplier climbs to x2, x3 and x5 respectively.
It is possible to land what is known as the “Earthquake” during the base game in this slot. Earthquake removes all low paying symbols, allowing only high paying symbols to take their place. This definitely gives room for some very decent wins in the base game.
Avalanches continue in this slot through to the bonus feature, but are bigger and better. Within the “Free Falls” bonus, the avalanche multipliers are x3, x6, x9 and a massive x15. With 117,649 ways to win, and a potential multiplier of x15, it’s no wonder this game has so many incredible wins buried within.
You know the original slot was good when very little needs to be updated for the Megaways version. Gonzo’s Quest Megaways is definitely going to be one of the most loved slots of 2020, and it’s no wonder why. I can’t wait to see some of the massive wins that undoubtedly will come soon!
