The Red Tiger revival of a NetEnt super slot classic

Few online casino slots have become such an insane smash hit as NetEnt’s Gonzo’s Quest.

The video slot was released in 2013 and would forever change the gaming world with its features, graphics, and winning potential.

NetEnt acquired Red Tiger back in 2019, and since then, Red Tiger has conjured up some exciting new slots for us.

One of the major releases is the brand new Gonzo’s Quest Megaways, a completely new take on the classic, fully kitted with the BTG Megaways mechanic!

Gonzo’s Quest Megaways is available at real money casinos from the 23rd of July 2020.

Gonzo’s Quest (2013)

  • Reels: 5
  • Rows: 3
  • Paylines: 20
  • RTP: 95,97%
  • Max win: 37,500x
  • Volatility: M

The classic Gonzo’s Quest is based on the conquistador Gonzalo and his expedition to find El Dorado. In other words, a perfect theme for a gold-glistening slot experience!

NetEnt paved the way for Avalanche feature slots with this game, as each winning combination sees the winning symbols break, with new ones fall onto the reels.

Each consecutive Avalanche also increases the game multiplier, up to a maximum of 5x. Three Free Fall symbols trigger 10 free falls (free spins). During these, the multiplier has a max level of 15x instead of 5x.

Gonzo’s Quest Megaways (2020)

  • Rows: 2-7
  • Paylines: Up to 117,649 Megaways
  • RTP: 96,00%
  • Max win: 21,000x stake

If it ain’t broken, don’t try to fix it. This seems to be the approach Red Tiger took when putting their hands on Gonzo’s Quest.

They’ve kept all the loved features and designs and instead just enhanced the game, Taking it to a whole new level.

The Avalanche feature remains as is, seeing as it’s a part of the Megaways-mechanic. New to the game is the Earthquake feature and the Unbreakable Wilds.

Earthquake can happen at any point during the game, shaking the reels to break all low paying symbols. The Unbreakable Wilds lands up to 2 unique wilds on the reels. These wilds won’t break from an avalanche.

Last but not least, the Free Fall feature has been boosted with a Royal Wheel that lets you gamble for the chance of increasing the number of free falls to up to 25.
