This January will see the release of a new online video slot game that brings the thrills of the Wild West to the online casino world. It goes by the name of Mustang Gold and promises plenty of horse and cowboy themed gambling action. The official release date isn’t until 17/01/2019, but here at Gambling Metropolis, we’re bringing you a sneak-peak of what’s in store….
Mustang Gold: What’s it all about?
The game is actually named after a mustang, which is the term for an American wild horse – not just a classic Ford muscle car! So that means you’re looking at that real, traditional cowboy scene.
The imagery of this game is everything you’d expect. You’ve got the dusty, rocky scenery of all those Spaghetti Westerns such as The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, complete with rickety old wooden fences with lassos hanging off them.
Look out for the weather-beaten, leather cowboy hat perched coolly on a fence post too. Then there are rugged cowboys, ravishing cowgirls and, of course, plenty of wild horses!
Mustang Gold: Who’s behind it?
The brains behind the game are the company Pragmatic Play. These are the guys who brought us titles such as Da Vinci’s Treasure, Aztec Gems and Fairytale Fortune.
The team are bang on trend with this one (…cowboy pun) as it fits in perfectly with the current vogue for cowboys, outlaws and old-school adventure that we’re now seeing in gaming. If you like games such as Red Dead Redemption 2 then you’ll love this with its gun-slinging atmosphere and the chance to win big.
Mustang Gold: Hit me with the details
OK, so that’s the context; but what sort of gaming experience will Mustang Gold actually offer you as a player? Well, the basic structure is straightforward enough: this video slot game has five reels (it’s a 3×5 set-up) and a total of 25 pay lines. It’s pleasingly up-to-date too by being compatible with both desktop and mobile – so you can play on the go, at home on the sofa or wherever you’re most comfortable.
There are free spins to be won with this title and there’s also a bonus game – so keep your eyes peeled for the campfire symbol and the horseshoe symbol. The minimum bet is 0.25 credits and the maximum is 125 credits. You’ll want to keep your eyes on the prize as the maximum win value is 12,000 x your bet. The variance of Mustang Gold is medium and the RTP is 96.53%.
Wilds, Scatters and Free Spins
In Mustang Gold you’ll find a wild symbol that can replace all the ordinary symbols in the game, excluding the other special characters. Meanwhile, the scatter is responsible for the free spins and if you collect 3 scatters on your reels then you active 8 free spins. A nice feature of this game is that the free spins can actually be triggered indefinitely many times in a row and also during the free play mode.
There are four jackpots in Mustang Gold. You’ve got the Mini, Minor, Major and Grand Jackpot and all four have a fixed multiplier on their wager that is 1000x your bet on the Grand Jackpot.
