NetEnt To Release Gonzo’s Quest Megaways
When big-name Swedish gaming giant NetEnt released its Gonzo’s Quest slot exactly a decade ago in 2010, the game made headlines for having been the first-ever online slot featuring cascading symbols that would, after the completion of the initial win, automatically fall away to be replaced by new symbols – at no extra cost to the player’s bankroll.
Gonzo’s Quest is arguably the most successful and evergreen slot ever released – by anyone. It continues to enjoy a strong and loyal following, which is why the news that NetEnt, in partnership with its Red Tiger studio, will on July 23 be releasing a sequel called Gonzo’s Quest Megaways, made casino news headlines to explode this week.
Megaways is of course the award-winning work of Big Time Gaming.
The Magic Of Megaways
A YouTube teaser trailer recently released by the developer reveals that thanks to the power of Big Time’s Megaways feature, the new and improved sequel could potentially pay out up to 20,000x the player’s bet.
But that’s not all, because the sequel will also feature improved graphics perfectly on par with current-generation online gaming. The sequel will be 100% compatible with mobile as well as desktop platform technology and will follow Gonzo as he ventures even deeper into the jungles of South America.
What’s really great about the sequel to the popular slot is that the development team chose to stick to the original storyline concept as far as possible given the implementation of several new modern features. The magic of the original concept has however been preserved and kept intact. There’s after all a reason Gonzo’s Quest remains one of the best loved games even 10 years after its initial launch.
Classic Meets New
What’s stayed the same is the presence of Avalanche symbols and the famous Gonzo’s Quest multiplier trail. What’s changed (for the better) is of course the inclusion of Big Time Gaming’s Megaways feature – bringing for the first time ever to Gonzo’s Quest the possibility of ways to win ranging anywhere between 64 and 117,649.
A random-event inclusion is the thrilling Earthquake Feature. The feature triggers without warning and instantly disintegrates all low-paying symbols. Unbreakable Wilds also make their appearance and will at random remain fixed on the screen even after a win.
Free Fall symbols have the ability of triggering and re-triggering Free Spins, and a Royal Wheel mini game provides players with the option of either retaining their wins and moving ahead, or gamble for the possibility of more spins.
