Evolution Gaming has done it again! This time the game provider has really struck gold with their new Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt game. The beloved character is has gotten its inspiration from the popular show - and now it is time to see Gonzo in a live game show. And what would be a better way to celebrate the new game, then a $5,000 tournament?
We cannot remember the last time we’ve been so excited about a live game. Gonzo’s Quest is one of our all time favorite slots and we are sure that the character works nice on a live game as well. We will give you all the details about the new game a bit later but first we want to talk about a BIG tournament that is dedicated to Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt.
LeoVegas is one of those casinos that always has exciting tournaments going on and this time is no exception. They are welcoming the fresh live game with a bang (or more specifically with a $5,000 tournament). The winner walks away with a $1,500 grand prize so if you wish to try out Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt with an extra prize pool, LeoVegas is the perfect place to do so.
1st place: $1500
Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt Live Tournament
Players can take part in the tournament simply by playing Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt live game. You will find the game at LeoVegas’s live casino - just open it and start playing. The goal is to collect as many points as you possibly can. Each $1 net-win is worth 1 point - so there more you win, the better prizes await.
Since the tournament is based on net-wins, so the wager amount will be deducted from the win. So let’s say you win $100 with a $10 bet. Then your net-win will be $90 ($100-$10) which will earn you 90 points to the leaderboard. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
Overall 20 players will get their share of the $5,000 prize pool. All prizes are given in real cash so you do not need to worry about annoying wagering requirements. The prizes are as follows:
1st place: $1500
2nd place: $750
3rd place: $500
4-5th place: $250
6-10th place: $150
11-20th place: $100
The tournament runs from 20th of May until 24th of May so you still have plenty of time to participate. And hey - is you do not yet have an account at LeoVegas, you can claim their massive welcome bonus. The offer comes with 200 free spins and $1,000 worth of bonus money.
Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt - The Hottest New Live Game
Now that we know all about the fabulous tournament, it is time to turn out focus to the game itself. Evolution Gaming has done an excellent job - there is a lot of inspiration taken from Gonzo’s Quest slot but the game still manages to bring a lot of new aspects to the table. Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt also sets an interesting precedence. Will we be seeing other slot-inspired games in the future? We would love to see slots such as Dead or Alive or Blood Suckers come to live!
In addition to being the first slot-turned-to-live-game, Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt is also the first live casino game in the world that uses Vr technology. So if you own a VR headset, you can take the gaming experience to a whole other level!
The main idea of the game is simple. Behind the live dealer, there is a wall that contains 70 stones. Your job is to decide what stones to look for and how many chances there are to find them. Different stones have different values that vary from 1x to 65x with the latter ones appearing more rarely. Once you have decided what stones you want to look for, you choose the amount of picks you have. So e.g. if you buy 20 picks, you can choose 20 stones from the wall and hope the correct ones appear.
Once the round is over, the wall reveals all the stones and final values so you see if your treasure hunt has been a successful one! The game also comes with a Prize Drop feature that can give you 20,000x wins. You will find more information about this in our Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt review.
