Mustang Gold bonus features
Players will note that the graphics of Mustang Gold are perhaps not as refined as many other modern casino games. We’d like to think this was a conscious decision from Pragmatic Play as the style matches the theme quite well and the immersive soundtrack helps to complete the experience.
In terms of symbols, players will spot the familiar card suit symbols – A, K, Q, J – that have the lowest value. The cowgirl and cowboy are medium value symbols and the two mustang symbols have the highest value, with the black horse paying out the more generously of the two.
Wild and Scatter symbols also appear, and we will talk you through what those do in just a minute. Horseshoes and the sheriff’s badge are also important symbols that make an appearance.
In Mustang Gold, the Wild symbol is the game’s logo wrought in gold. It can substitute for any other symbol except the Scatter and can appear on all the reels except reel 1. Wild symbols always appear on the reels as stacked symbols.
Mustang Gold Money Collect
This feature relies on two special symbols, the lucky horseshoe and the sheriff’s badge. The former can only appear on reels one to four while the later only appears on reel 5. The horseshoes are assigned a random value during each spin.
If any number of horseshoes appear at the same time as the badge symbol, all the horseshoe values are added together and a win is awarded.
Mustang Gold Jackpot Reveal game
Some horseshoes have a higher value than other though and these are identified by the word Jackpot written across them. Should one or more Jackpot horseshoe symbols land at the same time as the badge symbol, one round of the Jackpot Reveal game will be awarded for each jackpot symbol appearing.
In this game, the player will be presented with 12 horseshoes. The aim of the game is to reveal three matching horseshoes to win the corresponding jackpot. The horseshoes can award the Grand, Major, Minor or Mini jackpots, of a value of x1,000, x200, x100 and x50 the total bet, respectively.
Mustang Gold Free Spins
The Mustang Gold free spins feature is triggered by the Scatter symbol, which appears as a roaring campfire. These symbols can land on reels two to four only.
When three Scatter symbols appear, the player is awarded 8 free spins. During these spins, the Wilds and horseshoe symbols will be more plentiful, which means the chance of landing winning combos improves.
Additional free spins can also be won during these free rounds and there is no limit to how many extra spins can be collected.
Mustang Gold jackpot
There is no pooled or local jackpot in Mustang Gold. However, the game does have four jackpot prizes built in, with the biggest one reaching x1,000 the current bet.
The Return to Player value for Mustang Gold is 96.53% and it is considered to have a medium-to-high variance.
Mustang Gold Mobile
Pragmatic Play mobile fans will be pleased to hear that Mustang Gold is completely mobile-compatible and can be enjoyed on desktop, smartphone and tablet at the same good quality.
