We strive to bring you only the best online casino games from the greatest New Zealand online casinos. Back in 2011, the Swedish online casino software group, NetEnt released a slot game that would up the ante in the industry quite significantly. Gonzo’s Quest became one of the most popular slots, not only in NetEnt’s suite of games, but also across the entire industry. Until today, even with so many other game launches that take place every year, the adventures of the Spanish explorer as he searches for the lost golden city of El Dorado, are followed by millions of players in Gonzo’s Quest.

And now, riding on the success of the brand, NetEnt has finally done what many players have been praying for: The group has released a sequel to partner casinos in the form of Gonzo’s Gold slot.

So far, we have also seen Gonzo Quest Megaways and Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt launched in this series since the original launch.

What’s Gonzo’s Gold Slot All About?

This is a five-reel slot with a five-row layout and 20 paylines. The original Gonzo’s Quest remained popular because it was simple to play, and its successor remains faithful to the same concept: Simple yet entertaining.

This time around, the endearing Spanish explorer, Gonzo takes to the forests of South America in his search for an ancient Incan city. The reels are set against the backdrop of this city, which will hopefully reveal its riches as you spin the reels.

NetEnt has made Gonzo’s Gold a high volatility slot game.

Betting on Gonzo’s Gold Slot

Whether you’re a player on a small budget or a highroller who likes to take risks at the online casino, this new Gonzo slot will have a betting option for you. NetEnt allows you to bet as little as $0.10 and the stakes only go up. In our books, this is a great betting range.

The maximum win on the game is 6,500 x your bet.

Gonzo’s Gold Features

The Inca feel of the game is seen throughout, including on all the high-paying symbols which feature Gonzo and the Inca gods.

Other features include wild symbols and the Golden Pyramid scatter symbol. Both of these are your key to bigger wins in the game.

Bonus Features in Gonzo’s Gold

Undoubtedly, the main bonus feature in Gonzo’s Gold is the Cluster Pays Mechanic for which NetEnt is so well-known. Symbols on the reels form part of a cluster if they are horizontally or vertically adjacent to another symbol of the same type. A cluster can be made up of three or more high win symbols, or alternatively, four or more low win symbols.

When three or more Pyramid scatters appear on the reels, they will trigger free spins. Initially, players get 10 free spins, no matter how many scatters unlock this feature. However, the more scatters on the reels, the higher the multipliers.

Every time players win a prize during the free spins feature; they have the prize multiplied as follows:

Just before players start the free spins feature, they are asked to play a pick-and-click game where they’ll select a symbol. This symbol turns into an expanding symbol. If, during the free spins, two or more expanding symbols appear on the reels, they’ll cover the entire row – horizontally or vertically and depending on whether the symbols are adjacent horizontally or vertically.

Gonzo’s Gold Welcomed in Press Release

In a press release that was released recently, the chief product officer of Evolution (NetEnt parent company), Todd Haushalter, spoke about the latest release in the Gonzo brand.

"We've put a bit of a twist on what players can usually expect from a Gonzo game, replacing the bet lines and transforming it into a cluster pays slot with a Free Spins expanding symbol feature," said Haushalter in the press release. "We're always looking to challenge what people expect from a gambling experience, and this is an exciting new take on Gonzo. Both new players and those familiar with Gonzo are going to thoroughly enjoy this next stage in the journey."

Gonzo’s Gold slot is available across all platforms, including PC and mobile. Players can try their luck on the new game at online casinos that are powered by NetEnt.
