Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt Live has just launched worldwide, and we can tell you it is the best live casino game show we have ever seen!
Gonzo joins a live game show host on a quest to help you unlock riches beyond your wildest dreams. This is a live casino game unlike any other. In fact, we think it’s even better than Crazy Time! Featuring a stone wall with 70 prize blocks, players can win up to 20,000x their bet in this action-packed game show!
Better yet, each player is on their own individual treasure hunt, with different prizes awarded depending on the player’s unique choices.
GONZO'S TREASURE HUNT RTP
The optimal RTP of Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt Live is 96.56%, however, this depends on which option you bet on. The table below describes all six betting options and their related RTP’s.
As you can see from the table above, each individuals RTP is dependent on which multipliers they bet on. For example, players betting on the 4X multiplier only will come out with the lowest overall RTP. Alternatively, players who bet on 8X only will have the highest return on an individual bet.
HOW TO PLAY
At first, Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt Live can feel a little complicated. However, it’s very easy to understand how it works after playing a game round or two. We recommend trying it out with small bets to get the hang of it, and only place higher value bets when you’re sure you know what you’re doing!
In this guide, we will teach you step-by-step how to approach the game, what strategies to use and how to get the most out of your money.
STEP ONE: HAVE YOU GOT THE STONES?
The first step is to choose which stones you will try to uncover during the game.
In total, there are six different types of stones, each with a different multiplier attached (1x, 2x, 4x, 20x and 65x).
The stone with the highest win potential will only appear once during the game, and the one with the lowest prize is the most common. Players can place bets on all six stones, or any combination of them.
STEP TWO: CHOOSE YOUR NUMBER OF PICKS
In total, there are 70 stones on the prize wall, and players can choose up to 20 to play.
These picks are displayed above the six betting options and are represented by small squares with a handprint in the middle. Click on the amount you want to play and wait for the game round to begin.
While each additional pick increases your chances of winning, these come at a price! Choose your picks wisely, and don’t spend more than you can afford to lose.
The one downside to Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt is that it can be easy to drain your balance in just a few game rounds. We recommend never spending more than 5% of your cash balance in one game round.
Please note: The total sum of your bets on the ‘stones’ will earn you one pick. Each additional pick after this will double your total bet.
STEP 3: THE TREASURE HUNT
When the betting time has expired, it’s time for the game to begin! The giant stone wall is shuffled and prizes are hidden behind each tile.
It’s time for players to guess where their prizes are hidden, and this is done by clicking on the tiles you want to play.
Your chosen stones will be marked with a handprint and can be changed right up until the timer reaches zero.
Keep selecting tiles until you run out of picks. If you do not make a selection in time, don’t worry. The game will auto-select which tiles you will play so you don’t lose out.
STEP 4: THE PRIZE DROP
The prize drop is first part of the game, which will determine whether any extra prizes will be awarded to specific picks.
Gonzo approaches the wall with a giant golden key. Once the key is turned in the lock a selection of prize drop multipliers, re-drops and spot prizes will run across the top of the wall.
Once they come to a stop, any prizes above an opening will drop down and land on a random stone.
STEP 5: THE RESULTS
We’re almost at the end of the game, which means it’s time for the prizes to reveal themselves!
The wall will uncover the hidden values, and all winning players are instantly awarded their prize.
GONZO'S TREASURE HUNT STRATEGY
Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt is an RNG game, meaning the outcome of each game round is completely random. This differs from standard live casino game shows such as Dream Catcher & Monopoly Live, where a physical wheel is used.
For this reason, there is no way to predict the outcome of each game round, and past results do not impact future probabilities.
That being said, there are some strategies that players can use, depending on what they want from the game.
LOW RISK STRATEGY
Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt Live can drain balances faster than any other live game show. The initial bets placed on coloured stones are one thing, but the extra picks can cost a pretty penny!
For this reason, many players prefer to adopt a low-medium risk strategy. This allows players to improve their chances of enjoying a long gaming session without sacrificing the chance of hitting some big wins.
In this strategy, we recommend placing small bets on the lower value stones (brown & yellow) and opting for between 8-15 picks on the board.
There are still plenty of chances to pick up some nice wins using this strategy, even though the brown and yellow stones only carry 1x and 2x multipliers. These chances come during the prize drop. Although the multipliers seem low at first, the prize drop can increase these to up to 1000x!
HIGH RISK STRATEGY
Players with a little more bankroll may opt to go for a high-risk strategy. We recommend that players who approach this strategy do so with caution.
The high-risk strategy involves betting only on the higher prizes (8x, 20x, 65x) and choosing between 10-20 picks. Whilst the rewards can be great (if you get lucky), the game could be over before you know it.
We previously recommended that you do not place more than 5% of your balance on one game round. To illustrate how expensive this strategy can be, let’s look at the sums.
With the high-risk strategy, imagine a player places a bet of €1 on each of the three stones and opts for fifteen picks.
€1 x 3 = €3
€3 x 15 = €45
The total bet for this one game round would be €45. Based on our recommendation above, you should have a minimum balance of €900 to justify this.
GONZO'S QUEST STATISTICS
As we referenced earlier, Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt Live is an RNG (random number generator) game. This means it doesn’t operate in the same way as other Live Casino games do.
Every outcome is computer-generated, completely random and independent of previous results. For this reason, there is no ‘stats’ section within the game window.
It might be worth remembering where the 65x multiplier landed in the previous round or two, so you can avoid those squares with your next bets. However, as the game is random, we can’t guarantee the big one won’t land there again.
