Powered by Pragmatic Play, Mustang Gold has five reels and twenty-five paylines. Mustang Gold is inspired by the beautiful and dignified creatures that roam the American West – mustangs.
Nothing too striking design-wise but still tempting enough for gamers, Mustang Gold offers punters plenty of chances to win.
Players will join the ranchers of the American West in Mustang Gold which is set against a desert canyon environment. The reels themselves consist of lower-value royal values (done in wild west typefaces), a cowgirl, a cowboy and a pair of wild mustangs. The black horse is the top symbol paying 0.4, 2 or twenty times a player's stake if they land three, four or five on an active payline. The game's wild is the logo symbol, replacing all other symbols except for the Scatter, Money Symbol and Collect.
How to play Mustang Gold
Before a player rides these beautiful creatures, they should adjust their game settings first.
Pressing the "+/-" buttons will open a separate betting panel where players can decrease and increase their coin value ranges and bet stakes.
Hitting the "Spin" button will begin to turn the reels once a player has made a bet.
Should players tire of manually pressing the Spin button they can use the Autoplay function and select the number of times they wish to automatically spin the reels without interruption. Great for the more lazy players!
Symbols and features in Mustang Gold
The campfire icon is the Scatter in Mustang Gold, and it appears on the second, third and fourth reels. Landing three of these symbols, players will notice that their wins will be multiplied by x1 of their total bet. Plus, it will activate the Free Spins feature.
Once the free spins feature has been activated, players will be awarded eight spins, and even better, they will be triggered and played across a unique reel set. This is where the Money Collect feature becomes available. Players who manage to land three additional scatter symbols will retrigger the free spins round and obtain an additional eight spins!
Money Collect feature
The Money Collect feature is the Horseshoe, and this appears on all the reels except the fifth reel. Every spin that is made, the horseshoe takes a random value from a jackpot or predefined set.
Look out for the Sheriff Gold Star as this is the Collect symbol appearing on the fifth reel during the Money Collect feature. If players manage to hit one or more horseshoes on the screen and Collect symbol lands on the fifth reel, the values of the horseshoes currently displayed on the screen are added together and paid out.
When one or more of the horseshoes combined with Jackpot, hit anywhere on the screen, and a collect symbol lands on reels five, it will award one Jackpot revealing Bonus game for every horseshoe with a Jackpot hit.
Jackpot Reveal bonus
The Jackpot Reveal bonus has four available jackpots, and each of them has a set value of total bets. The mini pot is x50 a player's total bet, the minor pot is x100 total bet, the major stake is x200 a player's total bet, and the grand jackpot is x1000 total bet.
The jackpot bonus is a simple pick game, where players will choose horseshoes until they match three of the same icons. Dependent on which symbols are selected will determine which corresponding jackpot will be won.
The graphics in Mustang Gold aren’t the most complex players will see, however, the country audios produces a nice feel of the American West. The features are pretty straightforward too yet they can deliver some pretty regular action, with the horseshoe bonuses undoubtedly adding to the frequent payouts.
