It has been a while since we saw a new Pragmatic Play slot.
At Pragmatic Play, they are currently busy developing Live Casino products, which probably explains why the otherwise constant stream of slots dried up a bit.
Fortunately, in January 2019 they gave another sign of life with the Mustang Gold slot
Mustang Gold is the sequel to Pragmatic Play’s most successful release ever: the immensely popular Wolf Gold slot machine.
Mustang Gold evolves around the Mustang horse as a theme. These strong, wild and almost untamable stallions are perfect for an online game. Pragmatic Play has done an excellent job of translating this theme into breathtakingly beautiful artwork. Those Mustang horses look stunning.
The cowboys and cowgirls, who have the challenging task to keep the Mustang horses in control, are also superbly designed.
But is playing the slot machine fun itself?
As you have become to expect of us, we thoroughly looked into this important question, right down to the last detail.
You play the game in the classic video slot setup with 5 reels and 3 rows of symbols.
There are 25 fixed paylines and bets are made from $€ 0.25 per spin. The maximum bet is $€ 125 per spin.
The variance of Mustang Gold is medium to high and, the maximum payout of 12,000 x the total bet. That can amount to a super big win!
The theoretical payout rate is 96.52%.
Symbols and payouts
The symbols consist of a mix of Mustang horses, tough looking cowboys, fresh & fruity cowgirls and card symbols.
The Mustang Gold symbol is the wild symbol. The wild is stacked and only occurs on reels 2 through 5. The wild symbol replaces all other symbols except the scatters.
If you spin 5 wild horses on an active line, then you win a payout between 12 x and 20 x the total bet.
A 5-of-a-kind of the cowboy is worth 10 x the bet, and 5 cowgirls give you 8 x the bet.
The card symbols are the low paying symbols and yield the same 4 x the total bet for a 5-of-a-kind.
Money Collect Feature
The Money Collect Feature is a kind of mini bonus, that can win you extra cash prizes (or even the jackpot game).
Here is how it works: horseshoes can appear on reels 1 to 4 (minimum 1 and maximum 12). If this happens and the COLLECT symbol appears on the 5th reel, you win all the prizes on the horseshoes.
These may be cash prizes or entry tickets to the jackpot game.
There are 15 horseshoes on the reels, and you can click/select them until you find 3 identical jackpot symbols.
The value of the jackpots is related to the total bet per spin.
There are 4 jackpots you can win:
- Mini Jackpot: 100 x the total bet
- Minor Jackpot: 100 x the total bet
- Major Jackpot: 200 x the total bet
- Grand Jackpot: 1,000 x the total bet
Theoretically, it is possible to access the Jackpot game 12 x in 1 spin and win the Grand Jackpot 12 x. The chance of this happening seems negligible to us.
Free spins bonus
3 scattered campfires get you 8 free spins.
During the free spins there are more horseshoes and COLLECT symbols on the reels, they significantly increase the chance of picking up additional cash prizes.
The free spins can be retriggered unlimited.
What is our verdict on Mustang Gold
Mustang Gold is a worthy successor to Wolf Gold and will undoubtedly also become very popular. Graphically it all looks very entertaining, and the mystery prices make sure that impressive wins can happen any moment.
The variance is a bit higher than Wolf Gold, and it will result in quite some erratic movements of your account balance.
For the player who wants a real chance of some quick big wins and good opportunities to apply the hit and run strategy, this is a very suitable slot.
3.6 stars out of 5.
