Pied Piper Slot Review and Casinos
ABOUT PIED PIPER SLOT
Quickspin’s Pied Piper slot arrived in CA in January 2018 along with their other new release, Northern Sky. The game is based on the legend of the Pied Piper of Hamelin. The story depicts a rat-catcher, employed by the people of Hamelin to lure the rats from the town with his magic pipe. When they refuse to pay him for his service, he retaliates by luring the town’s children away.
This spooky story has inspired another beautiful slot game from Quickspin that is packed with exciting Wild features, including Walking Wilds – watch the Pied Piper lead the Mouse Wild across the reels with successive spins.
There is also a re-spins feature and the opportunity to win big in a Free Spins round in which each spin comes with an extra six Mouse Wild symbols.
You can win up to 1,456x your stake with every spin on this slot. It is now available to play at all Quickspin Casinos in play for free or play for real modes on mobile, desktop and tablet.

GAME SET-UP AND PAYTABLE
The game format for Pied Piper is a simple 5 reel and 4 row one, with 40 paylines. You can play from $0.20 up to $100 per spin. As a medium variance game we recommend you take this fairly slow to begin to get a feel for it. Pied Piper slot is not as tough as some of the big high variance games we know, but nor will it payout in regular intervals – you may go a few dry spins before triggering a bonus or payout.
The graphics are stunning, with the village providing the backdrop and the following symbols available on the reels: 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace are the lower values; a bag of money, a key, a princess, a Queen and a King are the higher values.
The King pays out a 10x for five in a row.
Also look out for the Piper Wild Symbol which can appear on reels 3, 4 or 5 in the base game and bonus game. He stands 4 rows tall and therefore occupies an entire reel when he pitches, and he sets off the Piper Re-Spin.
The Bonus Scatter symbol is available on reels 2, 3 and 4 and you’ll need three to land on one spin to kick off the free spins bonus round.
Finally, there is also a Mouse Wild symbol which substitutes for all others except the Bonus Scatter and the Piper Wild. He also pays out 20x for five in a payline. More on the Mouse Wild in a moment.
Here’s how the features work in this game:
Piper Re-Spins Feature – You need the Piper Wild symbol to land to trigger this. Remember, he occupies all 4 rows on a reel. During the re-spin the Piper Wild and any available Mouse Wild will ‘walk’ one reel to the left. This happens until the Piper Wild reaches reel 1.
If you land the Mystery Re-Trigger on the final spin, then the Piper Wild returns to reel five and the whole thing starts again – i.e. five more re-spins!
Free Spins Bonus Round – And now we get to the main attraction – the Free Spins round. As explained earlier, you need three scatters on the middle reels to trigger this one, and during the free spins expect up to six Mouse Wild symbols anywhere on the reels. You get 10 free spins during the round.
Interestingly, when a Piper Wild symbols appears during the bonus round as well, then the Piper Re-Spins feature can be activated. This is where the really big wins come because you effectively combine the re-spins with the extra Mouse Wilds.
THE SLOT BUZZ VERDICT
This is another super slot from Quickspin, with plenty of entertaining features. The walking wilds are particularly fun, and apt for the theme of course. The wins don’t come thick and fast until the bonus rounds, but when you combine Free Spins with a Re-Spins feature and throw in the Mouse Wilds you can really start to hit some big payouts!
