Gonzo’s Gold Slot (NetEnt)

Gonzo’s Gold Slot (NetEnt)NetEnt is clearly developing a Gonzo series and this is evident from the several titles that the developer has released. We have already seen the Megaways, and VR versions, and now there is the Gonzo’s Gold

In this latest title, the developer has maintained the same main character and explorer, which will most likely take us back to South America.

Here are all the details that you need to know about Gonzo’s Gold:

Game Set-Up

This slot has a larger game area as the slot offers 5x5 reels. There are a few notable changes here, and one of them is the use of the Cluster Pays system.

Major features present include the Temple scatter, and free spins with special expanding symbols (they appear in a Book-style feature).

Betting and Prizes

All that I needed to do was select a wager of between $0.10 and $200 per spin. It’s an exciting betting range for many real money gamers, and if you are a high roller, you are not left behind.

Gonzo’s Gold pays extremely well, with the slot having the potential to deliver wins of up to 6,500xs the stake from one single lucky spin.

What is even more impressive is the fact that the slot is medium to high in volatility, and it also offers a fair RTP of 96.11%.

Gonzo’s Gold Slot Features

Here, NetEnt uses the Cluster Pays engine, and to get paid, you need to form groups (clusters) of between 3 and 25 matching symbols. These should touch either vertically, or horizontally.

I’m a little surprised that the developer opted not to use the Cascading Reels mechanic, which is something that I often find on slots with this mechanism.

NetEnt has included only one major feature on this slot, and it borrows from the Book-style slot machines.

The feature involves a free spins feature, but only when there are 3 to 5 Temple scatters visible on the reels. At this point, the reward is 200x the stake, along with 10 free spins. It is possible to retrigger this feature in the same manner.

With at least 2 expanding symbols visible next to each other, you get to trigger their feature. Once they expand, they can take over their row/reel, and this way, you are likely going to get an entire screen of matching icons.

Theme and Design

Like the rest of the slots in the Gonzo series, this newer title is also inspired by Aztec treasures, plus some long-lost temples.

There is gold appearing everywhere on the reels, and on this theme are colourful symbols. The symbols include Royals, a set of Aztec idols/masks, and the Temple that serves as the scatter.


Gonzo's Gold is a well-designed slot with above-average jackpots and a Cluster Pays system. It also incorporates the hugely popular free spins feature from the Book category, making it a hybrid worth exploring.
