A roaring good time with Gonzo’s Quest, Megaways

  • Published date17 August 2020

NetEnt first released Gonzo’s Quest back in 2013 and the slot seemed so perfectly conceived that a sequel that could top the original didn’t seem to be in the realm of possibility.  The arrival of Red Tiger, however, has put paid to that concept with their development and release of Gonzo’s Quest MegaWays.

The Legacy

Red Tiger has made sure to keep fans of the classic in mind by not altering any of the iconic components that made the original Gonzo’s Quest such a success.  The slot has been enhanced with Big Time Gaming’s proprietary MegaWays engine and gamification feature.

The game’s original theme has been perfectly preserved as you embark on an adventure with Spanish explorer, Gonzalo Pizzaro y Alonso as he quests for the lost kingdom of El Dorado. Only the most intrepid adventurer will achieve the game’s top potential of 20,000x the original bet.

Red Tiger has further integrated its popular Smart Spins feature, daily jackpots, and an increased game board size of 6 reels with up to 7 symbols appearing on each reel.

Summer release

Red Tiger Gaming Director of Business Development, Carl Ejlertsson, sees Gozo’s Quest Megaways as one of the best and most popular slot games in history ”It’s been an absolute delight to create a remake that is even more significantly boosted by the award-winning gamification tool created by Big Time.” He said in a press statement.

Ejlertsson also mentioned the diligent work ethic of the Red Tiger Gaming team, saying they had worked non-stop to guarantee the title was ready for its summer debut.

Red Tiger’s awards cache

Red Tiger Gaming has had an amazing 2020. In addition to successful releases, the developer recently staged an absolute coup at the virtual 2020 EGR B2B Awards ceremony, snagging 5 major awards.

Red Tiger Gaming took home the Mobile Supplier, Mobile Gaming Software Supplier, Slot Supplier, Innovation in Slot Provision, and Innovation in Mobile Provision awards. This has cemented its place in the industry as a major developer.

Smart acquisition

Anybody who had doubts about NetEnt AB’s acquisition of Red Tiger in September 2019 can put their fears to rest.  The £200 million in a landmark all-cash deal certainly seems t obe paying dividends as the feisty developer continues to reach new heights of performance and achievement. At the time, NetEnt identified the acquisition as a vital component of its expansion plans.

The acquisition created the perfect storm of innovation with both companies being leaders in the iGaming field. NetEnt AB owns Red Tiger Gaming outright with the deal being financed through debt facilities provided to NetEnt by Danske Bank and Nordea.​
