Gonzo is one of our most popular characters from the world of online and mobile slots. We are, of course, talking about Gonzo from Gonzo’s Quest (as if you didn’t know!). Not Gonzo the muppet. With so many slots released it is easy to forget about classics like Gonzo’s Quest, but as a slot with multiple bonus features, great animations and a very likeable character, it’s one that keeps coming back to the front of our slot play. So what’s next for Gonzo?
Should The Quest Continue?
We join Gonzo on a quest on NetEnt’s five reel, 20 payline slot. In fact, Gonzo stays on the side of the reels as the slot’s mascot throughout our play, cheering us on as we form winning combinations. We’re helping him uncover the gold of El Dorado and we do so via the Avalanche Reels™ and the Free Falls Bonus feature. This feature in particular sees us land the free spins that any slots fan is after, while the multiplier meter at the top of the screen increases and increases. Even better yet, Gonzo does a moonwalk when we win big. That’s worth more than hitting the jackpot. Ok, it’s not but it’s damn good fun to watch.
But the question still begs, what next for Gonzo? Should NetEnt release Gonzo’s Quest 2 to reinvigorate him? Inject some more life into a popular slot? Why not? He could have plenty of new adventures and become part of a franchise of slots for NetEnt. In fact, there was once talk of a 3D VR Gonzo’s Quest. Not sure where that would take us but it sounds spectacular!
Give Gonzo A Go
Whether Gonzo has a future outing or not, the original Gonzo’s Quest slot is still a masterpiece. It ticks all the boxes for what makes a great slot and it’s one that we keep coming back to. But there’s so much potential for more. Come on NetEnt, get Gonzo going again!
