Gonzo´s Quest and Pyramid: Quest

Slot Pyramid Quest for ImmortalityThe slots Gonzo´s Quest and Pyramid: Quest for Immortality have several things in common. They are both produced by the game developer Net Entertainment, both contains quest in the game title and both contains the avanlanche function. Today I want to tell you more about these to videoslots.

First of all I have to explain the avalanche function for those of you who aren´t familiar with the concept. In short it means that when you get a winning combination on the reels, the symbols that´s involved in the win are exploded and new ones fall down on the reel and new winning combinations can be created. Its a neat featured and very unique and also very popular among the slot players.

In both Gonzo´s Quest and Pyramid Quest for Immortality there is a win multiplicator that´s activated when the avalanche function kicks in. The multiplicator levels up for each avalanche in a row you get. In Pyramid Quest for Immortality the maximum is a 10 multiplier and in Gonzos Quest the multiplicator can reach a maximum of five in the normal mode and a maximum of 15 in the free fall mode. The free fall mode is the same as free spins, which often end in big winnings so you will always keep your fingers crossed for a free fall during you play time.

Now when you understand the avalanche function I continue with a short description of each game. I start with Gonzo.

The slot Gonzo´s QuestGonzo´s Quest is a very popular slot with 20 paylines, five reels and three rows. In the game you meet Gonzo the Conquistadore that are searching for gold. In the game you can win 10 free spins/ free fall as I mentioned earlier. To win free spins you have to get three golden stone bricks on the wheels. The stone brick with a question mark on it is the wild symbol in this slot.

Pyramid Quest for Immortality has an egyptian theme. You can´t win freespins in this game, but there are another function besides the avalanche function with multiplier. In Pyramid Quest for Immortality you can get generated wilds when you get a winning combination, The maximum win in this slot is 3 600 000 coins.

Gonzo´s Quest is in my opinion more fun because of the free fall mode but also because the sounds and the graphics is a lot better if you compare to the Pyramid Quest slot.

Why I love slots tournaments

The slot starburst
Starburst is a very popular online slot

I love slots tournaments! It adds an extra winning chance and more excitement to the game. When a new slot are released the casinons often has extra tournaments to promote the new slot. Then I search around among the Internet casinos to find great tournaments on the new game.

A slot tournament is kinda simple. You play on the designated slot and if you get lucky in the game you will be rewarded for your place in the tournament leaderboard. You will keep your winnings at the slot as well. If you want to know more about how to play slots, I recommend this website.

There are many sorts of slots tournaments, and the rules differ between them. I am especially fond of the format where the winner is the one who makes the biggest profit in 20 spins in a row. But I also like the ones where the winner is the one who wins the most at a single spin, it is easier to get hold of and track how good your latest spin was if you compare with the leaderboard.

Another one I like is the one when you should play for a sum of money every day, for example €2. If you miss one day you are out of the tournament. You will of course keep your winnings and the player that plays every day for the longest time will in the end win the tournament which often consist of a very generous price. The downside is that these tournaments can take a very long time to finish, often months.

The tournaments I dislike are the ones where you win if you have done the most spins during the competition. I think it´s unfair and only favors the players with huge bankrolls and the players that can play for hours. And I am not that keen on spending to much money, I just want to have a good time spinning the wheels and hoping that I will get rewarded in the games and at the same time compete for prizes in the tournament. I also think it´s kind of irresponsible of the casinos to encourage the players to gamble for long sessions.

The best part about these tournaments is that you always keep your winnings in the game and if you get lucky you will also win extra money if you get high enough and gets a part of the tournament prize pool. You can of course play slots without being a part of a slots tournament, read more about that here.

I once won a slot tournament and got a first prize of €500, and a lot more on the slot during the tournament. It was really fun and a happy moment for me. I have never won a tournament since then, but I have placed myself on the toplist in several tournaments and received a part of the prizepool.

My best advice if you wan´t to start to play slot tournaments is to read the tournament rules before you start to play. Otherwise you may miss important information that makes you fail to compete for the prize money. For example, in some tournaments you have to sign up for the tournament before you can participate, and in some tournaments there is a minimum bet you have to make to be part of the competition.

As you see, it´s important to read the rules if you wan´t to be certain that you are a part of the tournament. If you don´t like the rules, then skip the tournament and search for another that have better terms and conditions. You shall also make sure that the prizepool is worth competing for, sometimes the prizes are to low to put effort to compete for.

Progressive online slots

fact about progressive slotsPlaying progressive online slots gives you a chance at winning large progressive jackpot prizes while playing your favourite slots games online. Almost all of the big software providers out there including Microgaming, Net Entertainment, Playtech and Realtime Gaming offer a variety of progressive slot machine games at the casinos that are powered by their software.

Progressive online slots work in the same way as the progressives work in land based casinos. In land based casinos the casinos under the umbrella of the company that opperates groups of casinos will setup progressive games that are connected together. This means that often times you’ll find casinos that offer the same progressive games with large payouts. The same goes for online casinos where by the progressive games are networked together by the software the online casino is operated by. So all Microgaming casinos will feature, Major Millions, Cash Splash etc.. just like all Cryptologic casinos will feature the Rags to Riches progressive game and so on.

My favourite progressive slot is Mega Fortune! That was the first progressive slot I played and when the slot was about to hit the world record in 2013 for biggest jackpot the casinos had really interesting campaigns on the slot. It was a very fun time and all casinos wanted that one of their players should win the jackpot since it would be really good PR for them.

In the end I think it was a player at Paf that won the enormous jackpot that´s now part of the casino history. But more about the slot Mega Fortune another day. Now shall I watch a casino movie about a team of black jack players. I think it´s called 21.
