A game with wild horses, cowboys armed with six shooters and beautiful cow girls, Mustang Gold is going to be inspired by the Wild West, that much is obvious immediately. It’s a Pragmatic Play slot machine, one of their first titles scheduled for release at the start of 2019.
The developer picked a 5 reels/25 lines setup, which involves stacked wilds, scatters, free spins and a Collect feature. Rewards will go as high as $125,000 via the jackpot mentioned at the top, or up to $62,500 if we look at the game’s potential for its regular winning combinations.
Betting and Prizes
Pragmatic Play has a certain way of doing things related to betting in their games, which never seems to change. The line bet will always involve from 1 to 10 coins, while the value of a coin is $0.01 to $0.50. This allows for line bets of $5 at most, and the lines are always fixed. For Mustang Gold, this will give you a range of $0.25 to $125, to use each round.
For the highest reward offered in the game, check out the White Mustang, the symbol which will pay 20x the stake for each 5-symbol combo it forms. Given the 25 lines available, you’re looking at a 500x the stake top reward, which would mean $62,500 in one spin. The jackpots mentioned at the top can do even better if you trigger them, the best one reaching 1,000x the stake, or $125,000.
Mustang Gold Slot Features
Should you see the Mustang Gold logo make an appearance on the last four reels, you will be able to use it in any regular combo that’s forming through its position. It’s the wild, but it works only for a regular symbol, not for a scatter, the Collect or the Money symbols. It’s a good feature, mostly because it’s stacked and it lands on all positions of a reel if you’re lucky.
Second, you will have the Camp Fire scatter. This symbol is available for the reels 2, 3 and 4. It’s only useful if you get it in all three spots, as this triggers 8 free spins. You may trigger the feature again once you’re inside. The reels will get extra collect and horseshoe icons, so you might have a better shot at a large reward.
Horseshoe symbols are used to trigger a bonus game, provided that you also get a Collect symbol next to it. The picking feature that follows will give you one of the four fixed jackpots. The values range from 50x to 1,000x the stake.
As for the Money Collect bonus, it’s going to come at any point and it will involve the horseshoe symbols appearing anywhere in view, along with a Collect icon on reel 5. All values associated with the horseshoe icons will then be collected and given to you.
Theme & Design
It’s a fairly boring theme, at least if you want something modern, exciting and different from your slots. The Wild West theme is pretty tame in this case, involving a couple of horses and cowboy/cowgirl characters. Add some horseshoes, Royals and logos, and that’s it. The game will do, there is nothing ugly about it, but I found it slightly boring design wise.
Mustang Gold will deliver some excellent features, but only average payouts, the potential being on the small side if you look at how much an individual spin can pay.
