Pied Piper is a 5 reel, 40 payline slot from Quickspin that can be played from 20p to £100 per spin across all devices including laptops, smartphones and tablets. Based on the legendary character from the town of Hamelin (Germany), this Middle Aged themed offering benefits from Piper Respins where the Piper/Mouse wilds walk 1 reel to the left, a Mystery Re-Trigger feature where you can randomly get 5 new respins and a Free Spins feature where you get 10 free spins with up to 6 Mouse wilds on each free spin.
You are taken to the town of Hamelin to drive the mice away in this Middle Aged themed game – with cartoon graphics, it has the Pied Piper’s tune playing as you spin the reels. Symbols on the reels include themed A, K, Q, J and 10 playing cards as well as bags of gold coins, keys, princesses, queens and kings. The king is the highest value standard symbol giving you 10 times your stake for 5 across a payline.
Pied Piper comes with 2 wild symbols – first up is the Mouse Wild which replace all symbols except the Piper Wild and the bonus scatter. If you get 5 on a payline, you’ll win 20 times your stake. The Mouse Wild is important in 1 of the bonus features – more on this shortly.
The main symbol is the Piper Wild symbol which appears 4-high (stacked) on reels 3, 4 and/or 5 – it replaces all symbols bar the scatter. When it lands fully on a reel, it will trigger the Piper Respins feature – you are then given a respin with the Piper Wild, and any Mouse Wild, walking 1 reel to the left. These continue until the Piper Wild reaches reel 1.
If you’re lucky, you can randomly activate the Mystery Re-trigger feature on the final spin of the Piper Respins feature – you will then see the Piper enter the reel set on reel 5 to give you 5 new respins.
The main attraction is the Free Spins feature which is played when you get 3 bonus scatter symbols on the 3 middle reels – this will reward you with 10 free spins. Now, 1 to 6 Mouse Wild symbols are guaranteed to land, in random positions, on every free spin.
The feature also benefits from a Mystery Respins Trigger feature with a mystery Piper Wild symbol appearing after a free spin – this will trigger the Piper Respins feature with respins awarded. It’s more lucrative in the free spins though as you get up to 6 Mouse Wilds on every free spin – this can result in huge winnings.
I found Pied Piper to be an exciting and entertaining slot – it looks fantastic and the walking wilds are a nice touch to give you plenty of wins in the respins and free spins. It’s a medium variance title that can pay out up to 1,456 times your stake on every spin!
You’re more likely to win this amount in the Free Spins feature due to the Mouse Wilds being in play on each free spin. If you like the theme, I recommend you play Rapunzel’s Tower, also by Quickspin, which is excellent
