Gonzo’s Gold is an online slot created by NetEnt. It plays out on a 5x5 grid and makes use of free spins, expanding symbols, and the cluster pays mechanic. It’s a high volatility slot that comes with a top payout worth 6,500x your stake. The RTP is currently unknown. We will update this closer to the 14th October release date.

Introduction

The famous conquistador makes another return in NetEnt’s latest creation, Gonzo’s Gold. Nothing will stop Gonzo on his quest to find treasure. This time around, we join him deep inside the Incan temples.

Free spins, cluster pays, expanding symbols, and a gaming experience second to none awaits you. All of which is expected from the award-winning NetEnt team. Gonzo is one of the most famous characters in the online casino world, and he’s back yet again for more reel-based action.

You can play the Gonzo’s Gold free play demo here at Slots Temple when the game is released next month.

Game Theme & Storyline

The first screenshots of Gonzo’s Gold prove what we expected all along. It’s a slot game with a look and feel that we have come to expect from this heroic explorer. The Aztec theme runs through the whole design, from the temple backdrop to the Inca-inspired symbols. It’s everything we know and love about Gonzo, so this theme and treasure hunting storyline is set to be another triumph.

We’ll update the review with our opinion on the soundtrack and animation once we get our first spins on the game. NetEnt hit a winning combination with the original Gonzo’s Quest slot game, so we will be expecting more of the same this time around as well.

Gonzo’s Gold Payout & Volatility

Gonzo’s Gold is a highly volatile slot game that has a maximum payout worth 6,500x your stake available. The RTP is yet to be announced, so again, we’ll give you an update as soon as the details become available.

How to Play Gonzo’s Gold

  • We will update the exact controls when we have access to the game.

How to Win

Gonzo’s Gold caters to all types of player budgets with its minimum bet of $0.10. The cluster pays mechanic means you need to spin clusters of symbols on the 5x5 grid to win prizes. The symbols are made up of low-value card suits and high-paying Incan gods, and Gonzo himself.

  • Low-paying symbols require a cluster of three or more to trigger prizes.
  • High-paying symbols require a cluster of four or more to trigger prizes.
  • The biggest possible cluster is made up of 25 matching symbols.

The scatter symbol holds the key to accessing the free spins feature in the Gonzo’s Gold game. Three or more scatters anywhere on the grid bring you a bonus prize and a bundle of ten free spins.

Gonzo’s Gold Free Spins

The free spins bonus round is where you’ll find the bigger payouts in the game and as we mentioned above, landing three or more of the scatters will give you access to the feature.

Before your free spins begin, you get to choose an expanding golden symbol before your free spins begin. This special symbol helps you rack up more winning combinations throughout the bonus round.

Golden Symbol Expansion

Before your ten free spins start, you’ll need to play the “pick and click” game to choose your golden symbol. The symbol becomes an expanding symbol throughout the ten free spins and will cover an entire row or reel when you spin two or more together, horizontally or vertically.

Our Verdict

The Gonzo brand has been a monster hit for the NetEnt team. Innovative features and a charming central character combined to attract an army of fans who continue to play the original to this very day. There have always been questions on whether NetEnt would satisfy our yearning for another Gonzo game, and now the wait is nearly over.

The big Gonzo fans amongst you will know that Gonzo’s Quest Megaways was released in 2020, and this gave players a little taste of something new with the Megaways integration. But Gonzo’s Gold is a brand new design that is set to bring us many more years together with the intrepid explorer.

In the Meantime…

Gonzo’s Gold will not be released until October 14th, 2021. So, before we get hold of the free play demo, we have some exciting suggestions for you to try out:

Gonzo’s Quest

 

We couldn’t ignore the original and source of inspiration for the upcoming Gonzo’s Gold slot game. Gonzo’s Quest, released back in 2011, was a trailblazer for all other video slots across the decade.

Avalanche reels, wilds, scatters, and medium volatility combines to create a game that everyone can enjoy. It was Gonzo himself who stole the show, though. He’s a loveable guy, with bags of charm. Play the demo original right here at Slots Temple and get yourself ready for Gonzo’s Gold.

Starburst XXXtreme

It’s been a busy time at NetEnt, with the team recently updating another of its iconic slot games. Starburst XXXtreme is the follow-up to the studio’s smash hit, Starburst.

The new and improved XXXtreme title has a top prize worth 200,000x your total stake, as well as a pay-to-play XXXtreme Spins feature. Just think of Starburst with some super-charged features, and you’ll get the idea.

Lara Croft Temples & Tombs

From one treasure hunter to another. Lara Croft Temples & Tombs puts you straight into the middle of another Aztec-themed slot game, so you’ll get a familiar sense of adventure once you start spinning the reels.

The game from Microgaming and Triple Edge Studios offers a similar top prize worth 7,343x your stake, along with rolling reels and a 243-ways-to-win mechanic.

Eye of Horus

Eye of Horus is a hugely popular land-based slot game that successfully made the leap over to the online world. Created by Blueprint Gaming and Merkur Gaming, this Egyptian-theme slot offers a decent RTP of 96.31%, free spins, and expanding wilds.
