Gonzo’s Quest Megaways slot is a highly-anticipated title from NetEnt / Red Tiger Gaming that’s a follow-on from the massively-popular title back in 2012, without Megaways.

Gonzo’s Quest Slot Bonuses and Features
Avalanche Multipliers. As a Megaways slot you’d probably expect some avalanche feature here but this one’s a bit different. Every time you get a win, winning symbols are removed from the reels to allow new ones to fall in. However, this also increases your multiplier. The initial spin only has a multiplier of 1z of course, but the 2nd increases it to 2x, the 3rd to 3x and the 4th and all subsequent spins increase it to 5x. This means a nice chain of wins within the same spin can offer some decent payouts.
Unbreakable Wilds. Wild symbols are available in this game, substituting for all others in a winning combination. On any given spin, up to 2 wilds can land, one for the 1st three reels and one for the 2nd 3. Most importantly though, and as the name of the feature suggests, they do not break when part of a win.
Earthquake. This feature will remove all low-paying symbols from the game and only high-paying symbols can replace them.
Free Fall Bonus. To trigger this you need either 3 or more free fall symbols, or 2 free fall symbols and a wild symbol. This will give you 9 free spins for the bonus, with each additional free fall symbols giving you another 3 free spins. During the bonus, you can win more free spins by landing more symbols. Furthermore, the multiplier for each avalanche is increased over the base game. Your base multiplier is now 3x, increasing to 6x for the 2nd avalanche, 9x for the 3rd and 15x for the 4th and all other avalanches.
Gonzo’s Quest Megaways slot from Red Tiger Gaming / NetEnt is based on the hugely popular Gonzo’s Quest from back in 2012. Even today it remains popular, so it’s no surprise to see Megaways added to it. Naturally, this does change things up a bit but not enough to take away from what made the original so great. Of course you have more ways to win here and the addition of some extra features is nice to see. You also have a higher RTP which is always welcome. The core essence of the slot remains though with similar visuals and features which make the game great. I think it’s good fun and despite having a lower maximum win, 21,000x your stake isn’t exactly bad.
