Play Gonzo's Gold Slot

Gonzo's Gold is a volatile, Cluster Pays ‘grid slot’ installment in NetEnt’s iconic series, and it plays out on a 5x5 layout. A screen full of the top-tier conquistador symbol awards 5,000x your stake in all stages of the game, but it’s more likely to happen in the 'Book of' mechanic inspired bonus round. The chosen ‘golden’ symbol can expand to fill either rows or reels, and the overall max win is 6,500x your stake. Check out the free demo game below, and read our full review.

Gonzo's Gold Review

The popularity and ‘star power’ of the morion-hatted conquistador is such that we’re just waiting for NetEnt to announce the first ever slot-to-movie adaptation. The virtual reality version of Gonzo’s Quest is scheduled for late 2021, and we already have the augmented reality live game from Evolution. This Cluster Pays version is kind of squeezed in between, and it doesn’t quite live up to the high expectations we have for this franchise.

The Cascading Wins Multiplier mechanic that made the original release so popular is long gone in Gonzo's Gold, which is kind of strange for a grid slot. Overall, the base game is mostly a sinking ship grind, like in most Book slots, but the expanding symbols bonus round does offer some thrilling moments. It largely depends on which symbol is chosen to expand, as is usually the case, and the expanding mechanic has been tweaked in an interesting way.

Gonzo's Gold Slot Features

The scatter symbol serves double duty as a wild, and it thus steps in for all regular pay symbols to help complete winning combos. The regular premiums pay between 750 and 5,000 x your stake for 25 matching symbols in a cluster (that would be a full 5x5 grid, of course). Your best chance of winning big happens when you land 3+ temple scatters anywhere in view.

This triggers the Bonus Round, and you get 10 free spins no matter how many triggering scatters you landed. In addition, you get an up-front scatter win of 2, 20 or 200 x your stake for 3, 4 and 5 scatters, respectively. You will pick 1 of 9 question mark tiles before the feature starts, and this determines which special ‘golden’ expanding symbol you get.

When you land 2 of the chosen expanding symbols adjacent during the bonus round, the symbols expand to cover a full reel or row, respectively. The expanded symbols are considered adjacent no matter their position on the grid. This means that they will always count as a cluster win, and pay similar to non-adjacent expanded reels in regular ‘Book slots’.

A second payout calculation is then summed up for the expanded cluster win, in addition to what you might have won from the original free spin. You can retrigger the bonus round indefinitely with 3+ temple scatters, and this awards a scatter win as described above, plus 10 extra spins added to your tally.

The 200 Spins Gonzo's Gold Slot Experience

We had a decent time testing this NetEnt follow-up, but we have to say we are a little disappointed overall. More about that in the review summary, but we’ve created a brief and edited highlights video as usual. You can thus check out how we fared by hitting the play button below.

Review Summary

Every previous installment in the Gonzo saga has added value to the brand, except for this. Gonzo's Gold is the first release where we feel that NetEnt is simply taking advantage of the brand name to churn out a somewhat hasty production to fill the release roadmap. The original Gonzo’s Quest mainstreamed the progressive Cascading Win Multiplier feature, something most grid slots embrace, but not this one (for whatever reason).

The base game is screaming for some modifier action, but we get that NetEnt has tried to make a barebones release with a ‘Book of’ mechanic inspired bonus round. The game does come alive when you trigger the feature, and expanding cluster wins are both fun and potentially lucrative to the tune of 6,500x your stake. We still feel that this game could have done without the Gonzo branding though, as the usually lively conquistador is reduced to a static pay symbol.

Pros

  • A 5x5 Gonzo cluster pays 5,000x your stake
  • FS w/ randomly chosen expanding symbol
  • The 2+ expanded symbols pay as one cluster
  • Overall max win of 6,500x your stake

Cons

  • Beware of adjustable RTP ranges

If you appreciate Gonzo's Gold Slot you should also try:

Gonzo's Quest Megaways - is a highly popular and solid follow-up to NetEnt’s most iconic release ever, and you get a cascading wins multiplier that can go as high as x15 in the bonus round. You can also look forward to unbreakable wilds and an earthquake feature, and the max win is a solid 21,000x your stake.

Gonzo's Treasure Hunt - is another highly successful and fun follow-up release in the Gonzo range, and this Live Game features Gonzo himself as an Augmented Reality in-studio co-host. You’re taken right into the heart of the Incan city, and prize drops and multipliers can lead to 20,000x payouts from a single stone in the pick’em game.

Age of the Gods Norse: Book of Dwarves - is a Playtech ‘book slot’ that sticks out from most other productions. It too comes with a 5x5 layout, and the bonus round comes with 3x3 sized expanding symbols. Up to 3 special symbols can come from retriggers, and you can win up to 10,000x your stake.

Quite different from the Original. Some graphic elements are the same but totally different mechanics. Have not decided if I like it or not yet..
