NetEnt Launches Highly-Anticipated Gonzo’s Gold

  By benboland – Last updated 18 Nov 2021

Slots fans can rejoice at the news that NetEnt has just launched another sequel to its iconic Gonzo series. Gonzo’s Gold was released on 14th October and includes an array of welcoming elements to make it one of the standout titles of 2021 in what has been a packed year of games.

Following on from previous instalments, this slot follows the adventure of Gonzo, with the titular character a diminutive conquistador full of adventure. The original in this series, Gonzo’s Quest, remains one of the most popular slots of all time due to its unique theme and outstanding features; the game is often included in free spins offers.

While Gonzo’s Gold has a different feel, it is likely to still be enjoyed by fans of the original. The setting is inside a temple and packed full of colourful symbols for an immersive experience. 

It is the reel layout, though, that this slot truly differs. The 5×5 grid makes for an intimate experience on every spin and brings with it some decent winning potential. Scatter symbols and an extensive free spins mode also more than make up for a relatively low maximum payout of 6,500x your stake.

With the creators one of the most respected names in the gambling industry, this slot can already be enjoyed at many online casinos by UK players.

The Gonzo’s Series

The runaway success of Gonzo’s Quest has meant that NetEnt has tried to re-create the magic of the original on multiple occasions. Here we break down each of the slots featuring Gonzo.

The original of the series, Gonzo’s Quest is one of the most instantly-recognisable slots today. Despite its 2011 release, the graphics still hold their own against modern releases and the game is frequently used as part of casinos’ free spins offers.

The gameplay itself is remarkably straightforward to play with a standard 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 paylines, with the free spins and bonus game offering ample winning opportunities.

NetEnt’s flagship video slot release was given the modern Megaways treatment for the next adventure with Gonzo. An improved RTP of 96.00% also complements the additional winning potential well – Gonzo’s Quest Megaways offers a maximum win of 21,000x your stake on any given spin.

Modern graphics and a host of updated features mean that this slot is a worthy successor to the original.

Though Gonzo’s Gold carries the titular character’s name, the slot itself has a very different dynamic to previous instalments. Gonzo himself is seldom seen on the reels, though does feature as a symbol.

Set inside a temple, Gonzo’s 2021 adventure may lack some of the razzmatazz of previous releases, but with cluster pays included and excellent stake limits available for all players, this is likely to be a release that is a staple at casinos for years to come.

Other NetEnt Releases

As well as the impressive Gonzo’s Gold, NetEnt has been busy releasing other notable slots in recent months. These are the three latest:

Starburst XXXtreme: As with Gonzo’s Gold, the best slots deserve to be expanded for a modern audience. NetEnt is no stranger to doing this, as seen with Starburst XXXtreme earlier this year. This version brings updated visuals and a huge maximum win of 200,000x.

Codex of Fortune: Codex of Fortune is a 2021 release and it shows with modern and gorgeous graphics. The high volatility makes regular wins unlikely, but 96% RTP and favourable stake limits more than make up for this.

Parthenon: Quest For Immortality: Ancient Greek slots are commonplace and offered at every casino. However, as you would expect from NetEnt, Parthenon: Quest For Immortality doesn’t do things by halves; this game also includes cluster pays and a host of enthralling features to make for a memorable time spinning.

NetEnt games are often some of the most innovative and enjoyable around and are featured at all major casinos. Why not read all about the developer’s greatest hits by clicking below?
