The Mayan theme of the game is classic South America and the era of the Spanish Conquistador. A series of of masks and faces on square stones make up the standard icons in this slot game. Blue, green, yellow, purple, brown, red and turquoise coloured icons are all a part of this, with grey faces including question marks acting as the wild symbol.
What is really unique about Gonzo's Quest is that the game uses Avalanche Reels whereby the icons drop into place, rather than the reels moving, which is a really unique design feature.
Free Falls Bonus Feature is activated when you get 3 Free Falls symbols on consecutive reels. Players receive 10 free falls (free spins) with multiplier values of 3, 6, 9 and 15! Time it right and that can be a big return on your initial stake.
The jackpot of the non-porgressive game is 2,500 coins, won when any player matches up 5 x the blue face stone (the one featuring earrings).
