Pragmatic Play chose Mustang Gold as their first slot machine in 2019, a year when the gaming market changed in more ways than one. This time, the developer offers plenty of western feeling, maximum excitement, and the possibility of a Grand Jackpot of 1000x the bet. Follow the two mustang horses on their journey into the wilderness, as well as two cowboys who enjoy peaceful moments by the campfire.

Welcome to the Wild West, a place in the history books that is represented by many developers in today’s gaming market. This time, Pragmatic Play takes on the task via the Symbol Collect mode, a free spins round, and a jackpot in four different levels.

Mustang Gold may not stand out much in terms of theme and appearance, but beneath the surface lies a high volatility (4/5), as well as bet levels from $0.10 to $100 per spin, to offer opportunities for all types of players.

The maximum win, in turn, is adjusted to 12,000x the bet, which in pounds converts to approximately $12.5 million. So you have every opportunity to get even the larger payouts if luck is on your side, something that is also a common thread among most games launched by Pragmatic Play.

The game area is a classic one with 5 reels, 3 rows, and 25 paylines, which may not come as a surprise given the theme and the relatively simple gameplay offered. However, the potential lies in the bonus features, which we will talk more about below.

Introduction to Mustang Gold

In Mustang Gold, Pragmatic Play has chosen an RTP of a steady 96.53%, which does not stand out much from the crowd, but it also doesn’t seem to be their intention with this game.

To win, you need to get at least three matching symbols, but the highest payouts, on the other hand, are achieved with five symbols simultaneously on a payline. You also get a pretty low maximum win in the base game, of only 20x the bet, something that is compensated to some extent by the jackpots Mini, Minor, Major, and Grand, where the latter pays out up to 1000x the bet.

The symbols with higher value in this game consist of the two mustang horses, as well as the male and female cowboy. The lower symbols, in turn, are represented by the A, Q, K, J, and 10 card symbols. The symbol called “Mustang Gold” acts as a Wild, while the campfire is used as a Scatter.

Bonus rounds in Mustang Gold

Below are the bonus features in this slot for an easier overview for you as a player:

Free Spins mode

To enter the most sought-after bonus mode in Mustang Gold, you need 3 Scatter symbols on reels 2, 3, or 4. This rewards you first and foremost with 8 free spins, but you also get significantly more chances in the Money Collect mode to maximize your winnings, and you can also trigger additional free spins with 3 more Scatter symbols as long as you have free spins left to use.

Also note that you have access to upgraded reels in the free spins round, something that paves the way for the highest wins in the game at 12,000x the bet.

Money Collect

A bonus feature that is commonly found in slots developed by Pragmatic Play is called Money Collect, something that rewards you extra when you get special symbols that trigger the mode. In Mustang Gold, it is the horseshoe that applies, which you can find on reels 1 to 4.

If you get these symbols simultaneously as the fifth reel contains a Collect symbol, then all symbol values are added together for all horseshoe symbols on the game area. This in turn gives you access to significantly larger payouts.

Jackpot mode

Mustang Gold has a local jackpot that is awarded in four different levels:

To activate it, you need to get 3 Jackpot symbols simultaneously with a Collect symbol, something that takes you to a bonus round where three matching jackpot symbols trigger their respective level of the jackpot.

The payouts for the different levels are 50, 100, 200, and 1000x the bet, where the Grand jackpot is the largest of them.

Theme in Mustang Gold

This game takes place somewhere in the wilderness during the 1800s, but there is not much more information regarding the background of the story, so it is up to you as a player to fill in the missing pieces. The two mustang horses, however, play a central role in the theme, but the same applies to the two characters who are on an adventure.

Visually, the game is not a masterpiece, but the symbols are detailed enough to impress most players. The sound experience is also decent, although the sound effects at every spin quickly become annoying. It feels like Pragmatic Play has focused a little too much on adding as many different sounds in the background as possible, such as the howling wolf and the neighing horse.

The game area is presented in front of a desert landscape, but you can also find a cowboy with his revolver held high as one of the higher-paying symbols. The other character is a female cowboy who seems to be greeting someone by grabbing the top of her cowboy hat. The symbols are also animated on wins, which we found nice to see, even though it is more about them expanding than moving around.

Summary of Mustang Gold

Pragmatic Play is a developer that slowly but surely began to gain more ground in the international gaming market through titles like Mustang Gold, a game that became a kind of introduction to a larger group of players who started to become interested in this manufacturer.

Thanks to the jackpot, you have a little more excitement than usual when you trigger bonus modes, but as it is only local and not progressive, the game loses a bit in our final rating. However, we liked that you can trigger the free spins mode as many times as you want, as well as the fact that the maximum win is large enough to offer higher potential than usual with the help of the wide bet levels.

Is Mustang Gold a game that stands out? Not really, but it is still impressive enough with the slightly higher volatility that offers more excitement and larger payouts when it does hit. If you are lucky, there is every opportunity for life-changing payouts with this slot, even if it may not seem like it at first glance.

If you want to try the game, just click on the demo mode or choose a casino that collaborates with Pragmatic Play. Take it easy out in the wilderness, but good luck!
