Shakespeare famously stated, ‘That which we call a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet’, but some phrases just sound good. The word’mustang’ evokes romantic North American images. The word’mustang’ seems more lyrical than Bing’s ‘an American wild horse which is often tiny and weakly built.’ Huh. Interesting, since’mustang’ conjures up images of strong cars or wild, free plains broncos. Mustang Trail, Pragmatic Play’s online slot reviewed today, is betting on the latter meaning.
