Evolution Launch Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt Live
Evolution proudly launches a slots-inspired live game show based on one of the most iconic characters in online gaming. The release of Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt Live follows NetEnt’s acquisition, making it the first collaboration between the two famous game development studios. Players will step into the ancient world in search of hidden treasures by selecting stones and watch Prize Drops add excitement to the game with supersized winnings of up to 20,000 per individual stone! Among other things, this live casino game is also the first with the option to play in Virtual Reality mode.
Gonzo’s live game brings a unique gaming experience to each player based on the choices they make. Set in ancient Peru during the Inca civilization, players will find themselves surrounded by ancient beauty and two hosts, the Spanish explorer Gonzo and one live host who can communicate with players through a chat.
Inspired by the slot’s tumbling gargoyles, Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt’s main feature is a giant wall with 70 stones. As betting commences, players will have a choice to bet on up to 6 different stone colours that will be sequentially revealed at the end of the game. Each stone has a different payout value: 1x, 2x, 4x, 20x and 65x bet. But, the higher the value, the less likely it is to appear.
Once the colours are picked, players will then have to make a blind choice on where they think the most precious stones lie on the wall. But first, they have to choose how many picks they want to buy. Each pick lets players select one stone on the wall during the treasure hunt. More picks equal higher chances of winning. Note that each pick will come at a price. For instance, if you decide to bet on all 6 colours of the stone with a bet of 0.10 each, and buy the maximum of 20 picks, then the total bet comes to 12 credits.
All stones on the wall will then be shuffled and the value of the stones hidden. The treasure hunt and Prize Drop will begin! During the prize drop, that happens before the stones get revealed, the hidden stones can gain extra values with the following:
- Bonus prizes - Bonus prizes add to the value of the hidden stone, between 3 and 100 credits each time
- Multipliers - Multipliers with values from 2x to 10x may appear, multiplying all visible values on the wall
- Re-Drop - A Re-Drop symbol is extra exciting since it will trigger a new round of Prize Drops, adding extra opportunity to increase the value of the prizes, making it possible for one stone to receive several bonus prizes and multipliers.
At the end of the game, all stones will be revealed. You win if you picked one of the stones you initially placed a bet on, including bonus values.
Virtual Reality Mode
Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt will also be available in VR mode. For that, you’ll need a VR headset with a controller to interact with the game. The game phases are the same as in regular gameplay, including stunning 360-degree video content.
The game is now live at select Evolution casinos, where you can try it out with bets as small as 0.10 credits per round.
