A new adventure beckons! Gonzo is delving deep within an Incan temple and is close to unlocking riches beyond his wildest dreams. All that’s left is for him is to get past the falling stones.
And soon, you will have your own chance to discover epic fortunes within Gonzo’s Gold video slot, bought to you exclusively by NetEnt!
What is Gonzo's Gold Slot?
5 reels, 5 rows makes this game a NetEnt classic in so many ways! Apart from Gonzo, who is the quintessential virtual face of NetEnt, this game also contains a number of features that are fan favourite hallmarks of NetEnt slots, including Free Spins and the increasingly popular cluster pays™ mechanic. The original Gonzo’s Quest™ (released 2011, one of the most successful online slots ever made, and a legend in its own right) was highly innovative, also being one of the first slots to use cascading symbols in place of the conventional reel. This slot, on the other hand, keeps things simple and sweet (the sweetness being the enticingly high win potential that can be found in the game, especially in Free Spins).
The game is set at high volatility. With a minimum stake of £0.10 and a potential max win that can go all the way up to 6,500x, you really can strike gold with Gonzo’s Gold™. The game’s hit rate is 25.84%, a large proportion of which lies in Free Spins, so make sure you land those Scatters for maximum effect! This is a perfect game for those seeking a big payout—but of course—you need to be willing to be patient to land that grand prize. That said, with an entry-level bet of £0.10, you don’t by any means need to be a high-roller to hunt for the big wins. The game’s simple gameplay makes it suitable for novice players, but then the 6,500x wins are nothing to be sniffed at!
The Inca vibe is masterfully rendered. High-paying symbols are represented by Gonzo and the Inca gods. Low-paying symbols are represented by card suits. The Scatter symbol is the golden pyramid that stretches up into a blood-red sky. Experience a sense of immersion like none other.
How to Play Gonzo’s Gold™
Winning combinations are activated in clusters through the cluster pays™ mechanic. A combination of 25 matching symbols gives out the largest pay-table payout in the game.
Another treasure that awaits discovery is Free Spins. 3 or more Scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels in the main game or in Free Spins award 10 Free Spins and a bonus win. At the start of Free Spins, a pick-and-click game transforms one symbol into an expanding symbol. Expanding symbols help you on your quest, bringing you closer to unlocking the long-lost riches of the Incas. Scatters substitute for all symbols in the game.
Aspects & Features
The NetEnt Cluster Pays™ mechanic is synonymous with NetEnt and the Gonzo franchise. The way it works is simple to understand. A symbol is part of a cluster if it is horizontally or vertically adjacent to the same symbol. 3 or more high win symbols or 4 or more low win symbols appearing in a cluster award a win according to the paytable.
Gonzo loves Free Spins (don't we all?) Free Spins are triggered by three or more scatter symbols, resulting in an award of 10 Free Spins followed by a bonus win. For three scatters, a prize of x2 will be awarded, 4 scatters a prize of x20, and for 5 scatters a prize of x200. Yes, 200x! Free Spins are played at the same bet as the round that activated Free Spins. At the end of the spins, the total win is added to any previous wins from the round that activated said Free Spins.
Golden Symbol Expansion
You’ve unlocked Free Spins. Great! First, enter a pick-and-click game where you choose a symbol that will become an expanding symbol. In Free Spins, two or more horizontally or vertically adjacent Expanding Symbols appearing on the reels expand shall cover the entire row or reel respectively, so look out for your chosen symbol! Once Free Spins begins, you’ll hear a heart-pumping soundtrack that will (fingers crossed) be accompanied by some heart-stopping wins!
