Mustang Spirit Slot Machine
Ainsworth has a new slot release that forms part of the Mustang series. It is called Mustang Spirit and features the same graphics as the previous game, although it contains some updates. You will notice several wild horses typical for the North America region, as well as several other wild animals, which makes the slot animal-themed.
Mustang Spirit has the standard features implemented, so you will deal with Scatters, Free Spins, and Stacked Wilds.
The Stacked Wild symbol acts as a substitute and can replace regular symbols on the same active line to help you form a winning combo. But the thing is, since the Wild appears Stacked, it can actually cover all of the reels and basically contribute to all of the 20 paylines. This is where you can get several winning combos, provided the Staked Wild have the rest of the required symbols to form a winning combo.
The Scatter symbol, as usual, helps you trigger Free Spins. You will need to land 3 Scatter symbols in order to trigger 10 Free Spins.
As you can see, there are standard features in this slot, and there is not much action involved, so this game is fairly straightforward and easy to understand and play.
Theme & Design
The Mustang Spirit offers some mesmerizing graphics, and the main protagonists, the horses are portrayed with great detail, looking powerful and heaven-like. There’s some elegance in the horse images and this is where you will notice Ainsworth’s talent and attention to detail. But there are also some other wild animals, as we mentioned, typical for the North America region, so you will face the coyotes, the American eagles, the scorpions and the bears. Logos with horse herds, as well as the commonly-used playing card symbols for the lowest-paying symbols are also present on the reels.
Wagering & Paylines
One thing that always brings us down when we look at Ainsworth-developed slots is the below average RTP. Mustang Spirit provides you with a 94.27% RTP which is not great and decreases your chances of making a great profit playing the game. However, it is a medium to high volatility game so you may get lucky and collect the highest payout.
The bets are expected to start from $0.20 since there are 20 paylines and usually the bet per line is $0.01. If your budget allows it, you can bet more, of course. The payouts from the Stacked Wilds will be quite decent since you will get a screen filled with Wilds.
Frankly, we found Mustang Spirit to be an average slot, one that you could play any time to relax. The gameplay is really simple and there's nothing engaging here that would require from you to overthink your next step. Some may find this appealing, others don't like it. In reality, it all depends on your tastes. If you're more of a slot player interested in immersive, engaging gameplay and huge payouts, you won’t like this game. However, if you’re one of those players who just want to try their luck on a straightforward slot, then you should give Mustang Spirit a try.
