Mustang Riches from Microgaming partner SpinPlay Games introduces us to the august company of the majestic stallion as well as the impressive BlazingWays Feature!
Can Mustang Riches stand out as one of the best in their portfolio? Let’s ride into the sunset with this Mustang Riches Slot Review and find out.
There is a definite clue in the title as to what Mustang Riches overall theme may be, as we know a Mustang is a free-roaming horse of the Western United States that is commonly referred to as Wild Horses.
The backdrop in Mustang Riches is quite something, a stunning blue sky can be seen overlooking breathtaking desert mountains and cactus plants are evenly scattered throughout.
The music that can be heard playing is the most suprising of all and is not something you would expect to hear in a slot game, its peaceful and serene and fits in nicely with the overall theme. Sound effects are quite loud and overpowering and clash with the music, making you feel like you’ve got more than one game running at a time.
SpinPlay Games has given Mustang Riches their best shot in terms of theme and its fair to say they’ve pulled it off. The backdrop could have been given a little more detail but we get where SpinPlay Games were going with it.
Will the gameplay in Mustang Riches have us running towards big wins or running for the hills? Let’s play on and find out.
Mustang Riches has a variety of betting options for players to choose from. For those who prefer a lower stake, the minimum bet avilable is £0.20 per spin. For those who prefer a higher stake the maximum bet available is £40 per spin, with plenty of other options in between the two.

Wild symbols substitute for all symbols excpet Scatter and Coin symbols.

The base game in Mustang Riches doesn’t have alot of redeeming qualities about it, thankfully SpinPlay Games has thrown in some wonderful Features to keep players happy, which makes Mustang Riches all the more appealing!
Wild symbols Landing a wild on reels 2, 3 and 4 will expand to fill the reel. If the neighboring reel(s) also lands a wild then all wilds will join together as a single image.
The number that is displayed on the Expanding Wild shows the amount of ways awarded.
If you land gold coin symbols on any of the 5 reels they will be collected and added to your collection meter for that reel.
For every gold coin that is collected, will expand the reel level and each reel can have 3, 4, 5 or 6 rows with 0, 1, 2 or 3 collected gold coin symbols respectively. The number of ways to win will then increase as the number of rows grow. The BlazingWays feature can trigger up to 7,776 ways to win!
Collecting 3 gold coin symbols will lock the reel and max the expansion to 6 rows for the next three spins. When a row has reached max expansion, the gold coin symbols will then upgrade to Mustang symbols.
All rows will reset once the feature is complete.
Landing 3 Scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5 will trigger the Free Spins selection.
Not all of the options are available the first time you play Free Spins. Subsequent selections after the first unlock by triggering Free Spins. The higher bonuses start off with more gold coins, which starts you off closer to the maximum expanding reels!
During Free Spins, any coin symbols that land will award an additional +1 Free Spin. When 3 coin symbols are collected, the reel will then lock with the maximum of 6 rows for the remainder of Free Spins.
Mustang Riches certainly won’t dazzle you when it comes to design, but that could just be because of the countless other slots that are just like it. The Frontier style design has been penned more than once before, but SpinPlay Games has made sure that Mustang Riches stands out from the rest through its features..
Mustang Riches has an above average RTP of 96.45% and a maximum win capacity of 7,236x, although these statistics aren’t the best we’ve seen in slot games, they’re not exactly the worst either. Mustang Riches isn’t too complex to understand, but whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing is for you to decide. Some like the weird and wonderful mechanics that makes some slots overly complex, and some prefer a more simple and straightforward way of playing.
Overall, Mustang Riches certainly shows its merit at times with majestic gameplay akin to the creature it’s themed upon, but it can be somewhat of a ‘dead horse’ sometimes too.
