Fans of Evolution live casino games will reach new levels of excitement with the news that the launch of Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt Live is fast approaching. With the release of this AR-driven game show themed on Gonzo from video slot fame, Evolution will bring the NetEnt/Red Tiger partnership firmly into its live domain.
Gonzo’s Quest is NetEnt’s flagship title and one of the most popular slots in the developer’s portfolio despite dating back to 2013. NetEnt bought Red Tiger Gaming in 2019 and tasked the newly acquired brand with creating a modern version utilising Megaways game mechanics. Released in July 2020, Gonzo’s Quest Megaways earned similar popularity before Evolution completed the acquisition of NetEnt just a few months later.
Into 2021, we can now look forward to the release of Gonzo the Adventurer into the live gaming genre, and the excitement among fans is plain to see!
What to Expect from Launch of Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt Live
Although there is no official release date announcement from Evolution, it is rumoured to be at the end of this month with April 30 the heavily mooted date. The live title’s gameplay is essentially a version of the ‘Cash Hunt Bonus Game’ on Crazy Time, which has paid out over €1 million in a single spin in the past! In this new Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt Live release, the action takes place on a wall containing 70 stones, which is a huge pick’em game hosted in live format with a live host/presenter and Gonzo himself (an animated character) as the co-host.
You place your wager on the coloured stones (containing different multipliers) and choose how many picks (between 1 and 20) you want. The stones are shuffled and hidden and you next have to choose the locations on the wall where you hope the stones you wagered on will land. Your stake is multiplied by how many picks you choose. A bet of £5 x 10 picks, for instance, means a total wager for the round of £50.
Augmented reality elements include the Incan temple setting and of course, Gonzo and his energetic antics as he co-hosts the game.
Prize Drops and Multipliers
Once you have made your selection, Gonzo starts the Prize Drop aspect of the round whereby Prize Drops land on certain stones to increase their value. Occasionally, multipliers will drop onto the grid as well. Plus, each round could contain re-drops which allow further prize drops and multipliers to hit the stones. All these multipliers and prize drops can create some lucrative stones with the largest possible payout set at 20000x.
Once Gonzo’s prize drop segment is finished, all stones reveal themselves and at this point, you learn whether you have won a handsome payout or gone home empty-handed!
