Any time you play a pokie which is a sequel, you’ll already know it’s going to be something good – the first slot from Ainsworth was so popular that they had to do it again! Mustang Money 2 delivers in this regard. It keeps the same impressive look and feel of the original Mustang Money game. At the same time, it changes the game play – giving this version its own originality. The Mustang remains as the key symbol, given more power this time around, as both the wild and the scatter. This is joined by an eagle, burning gold, a dollar sign and the familiar prairie scene.
Mustang Money 2 is a pokie in 3 parts – with the base game, the free spins feature and a further feature nested within the free spins bonus. Here are the best aspects of this low variance pokie game:
To enter the free spins bonus feature you’ll need to land the mustang symbol on each of reels 2, 3 and 4. This will now award you with 10 free spins, as well as an instant prize of 1x your total bet. These free spins can be retriggered at any time by landing three more mustangs, adding 5 more spins to your existing total.
During the free spins you’ll notice the addition of a new ‘Mustang Money’ title symbol which appears on reels 1 and 5 only. Things get very interesting when you land the symbol on both of those reels – as you’ll activate the ‘Mustang Money’ feature.
You’ll now be awarded a free re-spin, where both reels 1 and 5 will now be filled with mustang wild symbols. This re-spin can see mustang wilds appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 too. These spins will potentially be the most rewarding in the game – don’t be surprised to see a mega win. Simply activating this secondary feature also pays you 1x your total bet.
It’s unusual to have a feature within a feature, which adds a further element of excitement to this game. This secondary feature is activated on a regular basis, so don’t be surprised to land it two or three times within the regular free spins.
Mustang Money 2 is a five-reel game featuring a set number of 20 win-lines. The pokie is unusual in that, aside from the wild/scatter, there are only four main symbols. The highest paying of these is the golden dollar sign which pays 1,000 coins for the maximum five in a row, followed by the prairie scene, worth 300 coins. The flying eagle and the burning gold bars pay 200 and 150 coins respectively. Each of these four main symbols all pay for 2, 3, 4 or 5 in a row.
The low end of the pay table features the playing cards 9, 10, J, Q, K and A which each pay out for 3, 4 or 5 in a row.
The mustang appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 and will substitute for any other symbol.
Just like the original, this Ainsworth designed sequel plays out as the sun sets on the prairie, giving the entire a pokie an effective dark red hue. The sky is a delightful mix of red and dark brown, while the reels are a nice mix of red and gold.
The stand-out symbol is most certainly the mustang, the image of the mustang horse designed in a neon style, while gold shimmers from the symbol whenever you land a win. Check out the neighing noises and the sound of the whip in the soundtrack too.
Mustang Money 2 is a fine sequel to the original. While the main concept remains the same, this game changes things up by making the scatter and the wild exactly the same symbol – giving you potentially two big wins in one. The feature is the high point of the game. Here you’ll be looking out for those new Mustang Money symbols. Land them at either end of the reels and you’ll be looking forward to a big re-spin – especially when you line up those mustangs.
