We are back in the jungles of the amazon as this Gonzita’s Quest slot gives you avalanching wins to rival Gonzo himself, mostly thanks to a great free spin bonus round.
We know what you are thinking: this has got to be some cheap knockoff version of the Gonzo’s Quest slot from NetEnt, right? Everything looks almost identical, including the winning symbol, but the main character is a woman instead of a man. And yet, look closer, and you’ll soon see this is a very different beast.
The Gonzita’s Quest slot (from Red Tiger Gaming) is a 5×3 reel 20 payline game with an RTP of 95.66% and a top win of 2,580x your bet. You get avalanching wins in the base game, and 3 scatters will trigger a 3 respin game where you catch instant prize win multipliers of up t 500x your bet.
Besides the RTP and the top win (and maybe some outdated graphics), everything else is different from the original. You don’t get multipliers on every win; you don’t get traditional free spins, but you have no less fun.
For one, you get a lot more wins in the base game of this Gonzita’s Quest game. Why? Because you don’t get a progressively bigger multiplier with every win as you do with the original or the Gonzo’s Gold slot.
We thought we would miss the multipliers, but we actually enjoyed that you could more easily get multiple wins in a row, thanks to those exploding avalanching reels and big rock tumbles.
Of course, getting more than 50x your bet in the base game is hard work. But when you do get wins, they tend to be more than what you bet, allowing you to refill your coffers whilst you wait for the Gonzita’s Quest bonus.
This is a Red Tiger slot, so you know this won’t be the same kind of respin feature as the Luxor Gold slot or Apache Way slot. Instead, you have Gonzita sitting on her golden throne on reel 3.
You get 3 respins to catch multiplier symbols, starting with symbols worth 1x to 7x your bet. But as you fill the reels, Gonzita collects and upgrades the prizes, with golden slabs worth 75x your bet and diamond slabs of 750x your bet.
It’s incredibly effective in building excitement, as upgrades don’t guarantee the big wins will show up, but every new symbol that lands reset the spins to 3. Potentially this Gonzita’s Quest slot bonus can last forever.
It doesn’t, of course. This is one of the more volatile Red Tiger Gaming slots, so we wish the maximum win could have been a little higher – maybe an upgrade like in the Gonzo’s Quest Megaways slot.
Instead, it sticks to the original close enough to make it familiar but feels a little dated with so many new versions now out there. Still, it’s a fun little slot machine to find at your top online casinos.

Avalanching Wins: Whenever you get a win, the symbols explode, and more tumble down from above, creating new potential wins.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3 or more scatter stone slabs trigger 3 free spins. During the bonus game, Gonzita will sit on the gold throne on reel 3 - she doesn't pay out.
You get 3 spins to get multiplier wins. If you land a new multiplier symbol the spins reset to 3. If you go three spins without new symbols, the bonus game ends.
However, each time you fill a reel with multiplier symbols, all the symbols are collected by Gonzita on her throne and the symbols on that reel will not be upgraded.
The Gonzita's Quest slot machine may look like a cheap knock-off version of the original, but as with all Red Tiger Machines, there's more hiding underneath than you might think.
The heart of this new slot version is in the free spins, where you can catch a huge multiplier thanks to those upgrade wheels. The base game is a nice easy, quick-win game, but you won't win much because the multipliers are missing.
In other words, if you are happy to wait for the free spins to show up for the excitement, this is a good-looking casino game where a pretty conquistadora keeps you company with funny animations.
With a top win of 2,580x and an RTP of 95.66%, it has the right odds - certainly good enough for the fans of the original NetEnt slot games.
