Join the ranchers of the American West in Mustang Gold, a 5 reel, 25 payline slot from Pragmatic Play. The likeliest way to rustle up a decent payout comes from the bonus round that awards unlimited free spins or the jackpot round where prizes of up to 1,000 times your stake are on offer. Play on all devices from between 25p and £125 per spin.

Set against a desert canyon backdrop, the reels are made up of lower value royal values (done in a wild west typeface), a cowgirl, a cowboy and a pair of wild mustangs. The black horse is the best of the bunch paying 0.4, 2 or 20 times your stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline. The logo symbol is the wild. This substitutes for all other symbols bar the scatter and can hit anywhere apart from reel 1.

Mustang Gold comes with a Money Collect feature – you’ll head to a new screen where you’ll pick from the selection of horse shoes. The horse shoe symbols come with a cash value – if you also land a sheriff’s badge collect, you’ll win the amounts shown on the horse shoes.

There’s a Jackpot Reveal Bonus Game feature which is entered by landing the jackpot horse shoe symbol anywhere on the reels plus the sheriff’s badge on reel 5. Again you pick horse shoes to reveal a jackpot symbol – when you match 3 of the same symbol, you’ll win the Mini, Minor, Major or Grand prizes – these reward you with 50, 100, 200 or 1,000 times your total stake (respectively)

The camp fire symbol is the scatter. Land this on reels 2, 3 and 4 on the same spin and you’ll earn a payout equal to your total stake as well as triggering the Free Spins feature. On offer here are 8 free spins. More wilds and horse shoes are added into play during the free spins round so expect plenty of bonus prizes. You can also win unlimited additional free spins!

We enjoyed Mustang Gold. The visuals aren’t the most sophisticated you’ll see but the country soundtrack gives a nice feel of the American west. The features are pretty simple too but can deliver some pretty good action. The horse shoe bonuses can certainly get the cashier flowing.

Variance wise, Mustang Gold is in the medium to high range with maximum payouts of 12,000 times your stake! Get on a roll with the horse shoes and Mustang Gold can live up to its name and deliver a stampede of coins though. If you like the Wild West theme, The Wild 3 by NextGen Gaming is sensational.
