One of our favourite things about NetEnt, the world’s best online gambling software developer (depending on who you ask), is that their titles range from basic Vegas throwbacks, to branded titles, to original creations that seem like they could be based off of a movie or TV show.

Such is the case with Gonzo’s Quest, an Aztec/Mayan-themed video pokie adventure that has you ‘spin’ to have ruin-esque blocks fall from the sky and win you big money. The game’s two outstanding bonus features also fit in perfectly with this engrossing theme and can result in you winning a 187,500 coin jackpot. During our review of Gonzo’s Quest we found such a large number of things we liked about Gonzo (and very few we didn’t) that we can’t help but give it our strongest recommendation.

Detailed review


Jackpot & Bonus Games

The hallmark feature of Gonzo’s Quest is that Avalanche Multiplier feature, which works the same way as cascading wins on other pokies you may have played before. For the uninitiated, any time you win on a spin, those winning symbols are then ‘dropped’ from the screen and replaced with more random symbols. Should those new symbols lead to more wins, your real cash win is multiplied by an increasing bet level (x1 for your first avalanche, then x2, x3, and x5).

There is a cool Free Falls multiplier that requires you line up three or more free fall symbols on the same line after a spin. Do so, and you are awarded with 10 ‘free falls’ (free spins) and can even earn more bonus spins during those. Also during those free spins, the Avalanche multipliers are increased even higher to x3, x6, x9, and x15. Hitting the highest-paying combination here on the highest multiplier can earn you the game’s top jackpot of 187,500 coins.

Mobile play

Due to the increasing nature of more and more people playing online pokie apps on their smartphones, it was crucial to our Gonzo’s Quest online pokies review team that the game delivers a strong performance on a variety of mobile devices as well.

Thankfully, that is the case here as NetEnt has gone the extra mile to make the Gonzo’s Quest app a pokie that is just as enjoyable and just as beautiful to play on Android, Apple, and Blackberry smartphones and tablets.

There were five things in particular about the mobile app version that we especially liked when we did our review of Gonzo’s Quest:

  • Reduces otherwise distracting graphics to only what is essential
  • Wonderfully-clear graphics and sound
  • All the same great bonus features as found on the online version
  • Part of NetEnt’s mobile-optimized ‘Touch’ apps line
  • Compatible with large number of smartphones and tablets

Why Gonzo's Quest Is Worth Playing

Hands down, Gonzo’s Quest is one of our favourite pokies. For Aussie players that don’t want to spend a ton, but still like the possibility of winning huge real money payouts, Gonzo’s is the perfect pokie to play.
