Get your cowboy boots at the ready because it’s time to head out into the Texan deserts with Mustang Gold online slot. The slot was designed by the team at Pragmatic Play, and it features a whole host of special features, as well as some atmospheric visuals and some great sound choices to help immerse you in the world.
The game has a fairly standard set-up of 5 reels and 25 pay lines but is improved by a range of different special features and free spins options.
Graphics & Theme
The game is set deep in the heart of the Texas desert. The background is a calm and relaxing piece of the desert, and the symbols on the reel are a collection of beautiful horses and some Texans. The game is fairly bright to look at, with the gorgeous blue sky sitting above the reels and helping to add to the atmosphere.
The game’s soundtrack, which is clearly inspired by old Western movies, and sound effects also do a great job of immersing you in the world. Players can hear the soothing sounds of birds flying by and enjoy the tranquillity that the desert offers.
The symbols in the game are all inspired by the theme. The highest paying on the reels are a beautiful blonde cowgirl and a handsome cowboy. Next up are the black and white stallions. The rest of the symbols on the game are the standard 9-A poker symbols. The Mustang Gold logo is also a symbol on the reels and operates as the game’s wild. The scatter symbol in the game is a burning fire, which can only appear on reels 2,3 and 4.
Pragmatic Play always design fun games that are packed with special features, and Mustang Gold is yet another strong example of that. The game’s biggest selling point is the game’s progressive jackpot feature. The game has four fixed jackpots, the grand, major, minor, and mini. The biggest of these, the grand, is worth 1000x your stake. The others are worth 200x, 100x, and 50x respectively.
The jackpot bonus game is triggered when players manage to land one or more of the jackpot horseshoe symbols on their reels. Players then have to go to a separate game where they have to select from a number of symbols. Each of these symbols will correspond with a matching jackpot.
The game also boasts a great free spins round as well. This round is triggered whenever a player manages to land three or more of the fireplace scatter symbols on their reels. If you land three of the symbols, then you will be rewarded with a total of 8 free spins. When you are in the free spins round, you can trigger more free spins by landing three or more of the scatters once again. This retrigger feature is limitless, which means that players can score some serious wins in these rounds.
During the free spins round, the player will also be treated to enhanced reels. The game will feature more horseshoe and collect symbols on the reels, further increasing a player’s chances of scoring a big win.
Game How to Play
Pragmatic Play like to make their games very simple to play and Mustang Gold is very much in that mould. To start the game, players need to select their stake size using the +/- buttons that are located at the bottom of the screen. The minimum stake that a player can wager in the game is £0.25, while the highest is £125, making this game very accessible for most budgets.
The game’s paytable can be accessed at any time during gameplay. Pragmatic Play has a habit of making easy to read paytables, and this one is another excellent example of that. The RTP for the game is 96.53% which is quite nice, and the game has medium volatility. One thing that is a bit of a downer is that the bonuses don’t seem to be triggered very often when playing.
Mustang Gold on Mobile
Mustang Gold has been adapted for both smartphones and tablets. The design is pretty similar to that of the desktop version with just the positions of buttons, and some elements moved around to fit the device screen size
