Quest For Gold Has An Ancient Mayan Theme
The slot game Quest for Gold is released by Novomatic, and it is a five reel twenty pay lines game. Players will find lots of hidden treasure, together with free games and bonuses. The theme of the game is an Aztec expedition, and you will see several treasures of the ancient Mayas.
Reels Symbols and Machine Decor
The symbols in Quest for Gold include the traditional playing cards from ten to Ace as the symbols with the lowest value. They can, however, ear you a nice reward for finding five of any of them in a row. Symbols include the Monkey holding a medallion, a Medal with a green stone in its centre and an old Aztec Pyramid. The Monkey and the Medal are the next in the value chain, and both will earn you a good bonus if you land four or five of each. The symbols that earn the most are the Pyramid and the Explorer, the latter bearing more than a passing resemblance to Indiana Jones. The Pyramid gives you a good bonus for four on a reel, but if you land five the prize is huge. The payout for three, four or five of the Explorer, however, really makes for a lucrative payout. It is not easy to find five of the Explorer, but certainly worth it if you do.
The Wild and the Scatter
The handsome Explorer hero himself is the Wild symbol, and can replace all other symbols in a winning combination, except for the Scatter. In Quest for Gold, the Wild is the symbol with the highest value, and five of them appearing rewards you with a good prize. The Scatter symbol is the Treasure Map, and when you land on it, it will light up and offer you plenty of free spins. To activate the free spins round you have to find three or more Scatters on the reels at the same time. The number of free spins you are awarded depends on the number of Scatters you find on the reels. Three Scatters found will earn you ten free spins, and four Scatters appearing on the reels earns you twelve. If you land five Scatters you will get fifteen free spins. There will also be a multiplier applied to all wins made during the free spins round. When this bonus round is reactivated, the multiplier will increase its value, and can reach a multiplier of ten times.
An Unusual Gamble Feature
Quest for Gold offers a Gamble feature, more profitable than the usual Gamble feature in slots games. If you guess correctly the colour of the next playing card, your winnings so far will be doubled. You can then try to guess the suit of the card, and a correct guess will give you five times your winnings. In incorrect guess will, however, wipe out your winnings, so it is best to think carefully before engaging this feature.
Any Indiana Jones adventure fan should enjoy playing Quest for Gold. The free spins round, in particular, is fun as well as holding the promise of some very big winnings. You can try this game for free for a while, if you wish, to see if it is a game that you would like to play for real money.
