Gonzo's Gold Review

If there's one slot character that's been around the slot machine block or two it's good old conquistador Gonzo. First appearing back in 2013, this iconic character is finally back in a new slot title from NetEnt called Gonzos Gold. Unlike previous renditions which saw Gonzo slots play with a Megaways mechanic, the Gonzos Gold slot machine is played with a cluster pays game mechanic, and includes a free spins round as its bonus feature. Check out our comprehensive slot review for NetEnt's online slot Gonzo's Gold.

Gonzo's Gold Technical Features

The Gonzos Gold slot machine is nostalgically familiar to those who have played the original Gonzo’s Quest slot online, but of course the graphics and gameplay have had some serious upgrades. 

One of the biggest differences between the Gonzos Gold online slot and the original title is the lack of cascading reels, which has been replaced with a cluster pays game mechanic. The Gonzos Gold slot also has a slightly different 5x5 reel configuration. With the cluster pays mechanic players need to land at least three high-value or four low-value symbols on the reels in a cluster with bigger clusters awarding better payouts. 

Bets on the Gonzos Gold slot machine start at 10p and caps out at £200 per spin. This slot has a theoretical return to player of 96.2% which is a little higher than the original Gonzos Quest slot machine, Gonzos gold is also a medium volatility slot and has a maximum payout of 5,000x stake.

Gonzo's Gold Bonus Features

The Gonzos Gold slot machine has one bonus feature; which is a free spins bonus round. In order to trigger this feature players need to land 3 or more of the pyramid scatter symbols in any reel position within the same spin. You’ll recieve 10 spins no matter the number of scatters you land, but will be awarded 2x stake for three scatters, 20x stake for four, and 200x stake for five; which is a nice touch.

Before the free spins bonus starts players will be presented with 9 mystery symbols. Pick one and a symbol will be revealed to become the special expanding symbol for the duration of the free spins bonus. Landing two of the symbols adjacently (either horizontal or vertically) will cause the special symbol to expand and complete an entire row. 

The scatters are not removed from the reels during the free spins bonus round so it's possible to retrigger this feature during free spins. Players can achieve this an unlimited number of times.

Gonzo's Gold Theme And Design

The Gonzos Gold slot machine features everything you’d expect from an adventure slot machine and this time Gonzo is venturing deep in Incan territory in the heart of the jungle. Gonzo has visited El Dorado before and is searching  the area again, discovering new glittering, golden locations. 

The slots background features glimmers of the golden temple we’re in and atmospheric drum music completes the theme.

Conclusion And Verdict

With the success of the revamp of Gonzo’s Quest by Red Tiger, and Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt by Evolution, we were long overdue for a new Gonzo slot by original creators NetEnt. The Gonzos Gold slot machine is a lot of fun and slots with a cluster pays mechanic are certainly in vogue right now. 

The only downside we can find with this slot machine is that bonus features are limited to a single free spins round; albeit a well-designed one. We do love that the free spins bonus round can be retriggered an unlimited number of times though!
