Gonzo’s Quest Megaways has five special features – an earthquake feature, the unbreakable wilds, an avalanche mechanic, the avalanche multipliers and the free fall.
As you spin the reels, they may start to shake, triggering the earthquake feature. The lower value symbols on the reels will then be taken away, leaving only higher values for the next spin.
The question mark symbol is the wild symbol and will substitute for all others bar the scatter to help create winning combinations. This symbol is also key to the unbreakable wilds feature, as when it’s part of a winning combo the symbols will lock in place while the rest of the symbols in the winning combo disappear. This can help to potentially create more winning combinations.
The original Gonzo’s Quest put the avalanche feature on the map for slot games and it’s back in the Megaways version. Each time a winning combination is formed, the symbols are removed from the reels to be replaced by new ones, providing the chance for consecutive wins on a single spin.
Each time an avalanche win occurs, the multiplier will increase by 1x, known as avalanche multipliers. The multiplier will keep growing with every avalanche win and only resets when the feature stops.
- Avalanche one – 1x multiplier
- Avalanche two – 2x multiplier
- Avalanche three – 3x multiplier
- Avalanche four – 5x multiplier
The gold coin is the scatter that activates the free fall feature when three symbols land on the reels. The number of scatters that land decides how many free spins you receive:
- Three gold coins – three free spins
- Four gold coins – six free spins
- Five gold coins – nine free spins
Once you have been awarded your free spins, you can choose to spin a wheel and gamble the number of spins you have. There are between four and 25 free spins up for grabs on the wheel. The avalanche multiplier feature offers bigger prizes during free spins:
- Avalanche one – 3x multiplier
- Avalanche two – 6x multiplier
- Avalanche three – 9x multiplier
- Avalanche four – 15x multiplier
