Mustang Riches slot REVIEW
Mustang Riches ReviewFrom Blazing Diamonds (with or without WowPot!), via Amazing Link installments, and now the brand new and innovative BlazingWays™ engine. Microgaming partner, SpinPlay Games, certainly has a way with words, but the least impressive thing about Mustang Riches BlazingWays is the visual presentation. It’s far from a deal-breaker however, and the highly enjoyable soundtrack is adequate compensation.
The dynamic reels experience is enhanced by galloping horse animations that play out whenever reels are expanded, and expanding wilds land on a semi-regular basis. This adds vitality and punch to the base game, and the bonus round gives you 4 options to unlock. The most volatile option comes with only 3 free spins for starters, and it plays out on a maxed out 5x6 grid with 7776 win ways.

Mustang Riches Slot Features
The BlazingWays dynamic reels experience is triggered by golden mustang coins that land on a regular basis, and these are collected in the 3-slot meter above each reel. A horse will then gallop across the relevant reel(s), and increase the height of the reel by up to 3 rows. With 1, 2 or 3 coins collected in a meter, the reel will increase in size from the regular 3 rows, to 4, 5 or 6 rows, respectively.
This, of course, also increases the number of win ways, and you will always play with between 243 and 7,776 ways to win. When you max out a reel with 6 rows and 3 coins in the meter, all coin symbols that land on that reel will turn into the top-tier Mustang symbol that pays 5x your stake for 5-oak. Coins are removed from the respective meters per spin, and zero coins in a meter means that the reel is reset to 3 rows again.
Wilds always expand to cover the entire reel when they land, and wilds will appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 only. The number you see on the wild symbol is not a win multiplier, but rather the amount of win ways awarded. Wilds step in for all regular pay symbols to help you complete winning combinations.
You trigger the Free Spins Selection feature whenever you land 3 golden horseshoe bonus scatters anywhere in view. Only the least volatile option will be available on the first trigger, and you unlock the other 3 options by triggering the bonus round up to 4 times. The options are as follows:
12 free spins where you start with 243 Blazingways (3 rows per reel).
8 free spins where you start with 1,024 Blazingways (4 rows per reel).
5 free spins where you start with 3,125 Blazingways (5 rows per reel).
3 free spins with 7,776 Blazingways (6 rows per reel).
All coin symbols that land award +1 extra spin, and collecting 3 coins in a reel meter means that the reel is locked with 6 rows for the duration of the feature.
The 200 Spins Mustang Riches Slot Experience
You get to see the BlazingWays mechanic in action in the base game at first, and then we trigger the bonus round around the 1-minute mark. The feature plays out for the rest of the 2:23-minutes video, and we had no choice but to go with the least volatile 12 free spins option. See it all for yourself by hitting the play button below.
The BlazingWays engine provides a somewhat original and innovative dynamic reels experience, and it’s actually kind of enjoyable once you get over the fact that horses are basically galloping into the sky when reels are expanded. The expanding wilds come in handy at times, and we enjoyed the western-style soundtrack more than the somewhat bland visual presentation.
Having options in the bonus round is never wrong, even if you have to trigger the feature a few times before all tiers become available. The most volatile option can be a nail-biting affair for sure, and as you can imagine, it’s very ‘hit or miss’. It’s probably best to go with your gut feeling once you have more than one choice, or play it somewhat safe with the ‘golden middle way’ 5 or 8 spins options.
If you enjoy Mustang Riches Slot you should also try:
Mustang Gold - is a highly popular wild west slot from Pragmatic Play, and you can look forward to a money collect feature that abounds in the bonus round. There are 4 jackpots up for grabs, and you can win up to 12,000x your stake in total from the feature.
Spirit of Mustang - is a Pariplay western-themed release where coin collection also plays a central role. Not in the same manner as in the game at hand though, but more like you might be used to from the Fishin’ Frenzy franchize. You can win 4 fixed jackpots up to 1,000x your stake.
Golden Stallion - is one to try if you enjoy galloping horses, and in this Northern Lights Gaming release they gallop towards you, not up into the sky. The horses frame random positions, and these turn into mystery symbols on the cyclic golden spin. Up to 196,608 UltraWays are available in the bonus round, and you can win up to 6,000x your stake.
