Since its release by top gaming software developers NetEnt, this fabulous game has become one of the most popular in the business. And not without reason. This quirky treasure hunting theme, set somewhere in the Central American jungle, is a truly imaginative and innovative design with a unique charm all of its own. With the evocative sounds of the lush tropical jungle (and Gonzo’s occasional frustrated mumbles) zaccomp[anying your every move, the idea is to help Gonzo recover some ancient Aztec treasure. Or is Gonzo helping you? Not sure which way round it is, but either way Gonzo’s got a map and find it you must!

The game is set in a dense and impenetrable jungle, with Gonzo standing to the left of the reels to guide you. He occasionally scratches his beard and consults his upside down map while watching over your progress. You are surrounded by ancient Aztec symbols in this atmospheric tropical scene. The “reels” are in fact stone blocks, which do not spin, but tumble into position with a rumbling thud. The blocks contain more ancient tribal symbols, which you have to match to achieve winning lines. The game works well on all devices, but the larger the display the better as this sumptuous design and superb soundscape is at its best on a decent sized screen. But even the most compact mobile will still be more than enough to demonstrate the idiosyncratic charms of this terrific title.

Game Play

You can choose your bet level, with stakes starting from as little as 20p, rising to as much as £50 per spin. The wild symbol is a question mark. This can substitute for all the other symbols and can appear on any column. There is no scatter symbol as such: these would be wasted, because there are no reels to spin. Instead, there is the Avalanche feature. You need to get three Free Fall symbols in a line from left to right to activate ten free falls. At which point your wall of blocks rumble into action. Further free falls can be activated during this Avalanche feature. The top winning line multiple is a earth shaking 2,500 x your original stake.

Special Features

The Avalanche feature is similar in principle to the conventional free spins you find on most slot games, but it does have some additional advantages. Like the bonuses found on pinball machines, the better you do, the higher your bonuses or prize multiples. With each successive avalanche you achieve, your main game prize multiple improves, so that after four or more avalanches, your prizes will have attained a 5 x multiplier. Not only this, but during the Free Falls feature, your prize multiplier is even more generous. During the initial Avalanche’s ten Free Falls, your prizes are tripled. Successive Avalanches see your Free Fall prize fund multiplied by six, then nine, and finally, for every Avalanche after the fourth, an astounding 15 x.

Summary

This is a stunningly designed game which thoroughly deserves its strong reputation and immense popularity. Most online gaming sites of any repute include this game on their roster, and with good reason. You only need to try this game once to be entranced by its impressive design and innovative features.
