Gonzo's Gold, a guy with who most casino players already are more than familiar as there have been numerous slot releases with this guy over the years. The original Gonzo's Quest was released back in 2013 but has since then gotten a Megaways reboot in 2020 and even a Live Casino version called Gonzo's Treasure Hunt. This time NetEnt has come up with Gonzo's Gold and happens to be a cluster pays slot with no cascade mechanic in place. However, Gonzo himself is pretty much nowhere to see apart from his appearance on one of the symbols, which is pretty disappointing.
In terms of special features, NetEnt seems to have held back here too as there is only one special feature in place. This is of course a Free Spins feature involving an expanding symbol and re-triggers. With the single special feature, we can't help but be disappointed by this latest NetEnt release even before we have given it a spin.
How to win big in Gonzo's Gold – Free Spins feature
Trigger the Free Spins feature by landing 3 or more scatters anywhere on the reels during a spin. The number of free spins you receive will be the same no matter how many scatters trigger the feature, however, the payout will vary between x2 your total stake for 3 scatters, to x20 your total stake for 4 scatters or x200 your total stake for 5 scatters. The number of free spins will be 10 free spins.
Before the feature gets started, you will be shown a block of 9 “?” symbols where you will have to select one of them. This will reveal a random symbol, which will be the special expanding symbol throughout the feature. By landing 2 of the special symbol adjacent to one another, they will expand in order to fill the entire row or reel, followed by a payout. Should you land 3, 4 or 5 scatters during the feature, this will result in a re-trigger which will get you a payout of 2, 20 or 200x your total stake as well as 10 extra free spins.
The Free Spins feature mentioned above happens to be the only special feature of the game, which to us is pretty disappointing, especially seeing it is a Gonzo game from NetEnt. Another one or two features would have definitely been a nice touch.
Look and Feel of Gonzo's Gold
Of course, there is no big surprise that Gonzo is the man in focus here, however, the surprise here is that he won't really be showing up on the screen. You will only be seeing him as a symbol on the reel set, which is quite the letdown. However this time the man finds himself inside an Incan pyramid. NetEnt has created some sharp-looking visuals and is definitely an upgrade from the original.
The symbols you will be seeing on the reel set include the standard royals representing the low-value symbols. These include 10, J, Q, K and A which have simply been designed in different bright colours. The high-value symbols of the game, however, are represented by Incan mask symbols as well as Gonzo himself who of course is the highest valued symbol too.
