Mustang Money Slot
Mustang Money is the online version of the Ainsworth’s land-based slot released in 2014. It’s a standard classic slot game where you hope to land three Scatters in order to enter the free spins game, and the wilds get 2x or 5x multipliers on your wins if you’re lucky. The game became very popular in land based casinos, so Ainstworth decided to launch Mustang Money slot online.
The game features 100 non-compulsory paylines so you can choose how many you want to bet on, from 1 to 100. Minimum bet per line is €0.01 so that is also the minimum bet per spin, great for those looking for online penny slots, and the minimum to cover all paylines is €1. The maximum bet allowed in Mustang Money is whopping €10,000. If you want’ to bet a house on a slot game spin, Ainsworth won’t stop you.

Graphics and theme
Everything in Mustang Money is about sunset and horses, so the entire theme is in shades of red. It’s a bit too red, but the main symbol, Mustang, is impressive and it dominates the reels. As usual in Ainsworth games, there are six card symbols, with the usual artwork. There are five symbols which are more valuable, plus Scatter and Wild. Rare in Ainsworth slots, but Wild doesn’t pay, only Scatter does and Scatter is also the highest-paying symbol. Overall, the theme isn’t that good, but notably, the controls of the slot game are more modern compared to earlier Ainsworth titles, and the big Spin button is adapted to mobile tapping.
Definitely, the most unique feature in Mustang Money is the 1x multiplier during the free spins game. No other game did this redundant move, and during the free spins game in Mustang Money you’ll constantly be seeing Mustang coins with a 1x multiplier. Though randomly you can also get 2x on reel 2 or 5x on the reel 4.
The Mustang Coin is the second Wild symbol, so you play the free spins game with two Wilds. However, since that’s the only extra feature in the free spins game, it isn’t that rewarding. You’ll always get 10 free spins for three or more Scatters, and the feature can be re-triggered with three more Scatters, in which case you’ll get +5 free spins.
Payout and value
The theoretical return to player (RTP) of Mustang Money slot is 94.38%, which is actually quite good for Ainsworth and for a slot game that’s an online version of a land-based slot machine. However, the free spins game doesn’t feel as rewarding as the free spins games in some other Ainsworth titles, and the base game also has high variance as it doesn’t pay much and doesn’t pay often. While with some luck money can be made on Mustang Money, it’s quite difficult to do so. One would have to enter the free spins game really early in the session in order to walk away as a winner. Still, many classic slot game players stick with Mustang Money.
