Review of Pied Piper
The tale of the Pied Piper isn’t one for the faint hearted, or those fearful of vermin because this is a story of a hired specialist ‘rat-catcher’ dating back to the folklore story appearing in writings such as the Brothers Grimm and Robert Browning. Perhaps you will recall the tongue twister ‘The Piped Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers’.
He was hired due to the infestation of vermin in the city of Hamelin in Germany, he would play his musical pipe, dressing in colourful clothing which drove the vermin away from the city following closely behind the piped piper.
Quickspin have created a slot game based on this old tale, and it is not as grim as you would expect a rat-catching slot game to be, this is beautifully colourful and looks like something from a fairytale story book. Just as the original story was told, this slot is also based in the city of Hamlin, where your host is the ‘pied piper’ himself wearing his vividly bright clothing as depicted.

How to play the Pied Piper slot game
Rat catching is not an easy job, but when it’s in the form of a top-notch slot game it can definitely feel easier. The Pied Piper video slot is filled with colour and a number of various different symbols holding a different value and it's easy enough for you to play and win on online casinos. Make sure that you have adjusted your bet accordingly before stepping foot into the vibrant city of Hamelin, the minimum amount in which you can bet is £0.20, and the maximum amount in which you can bet is £100.
This is pretty standard like many of Quickspin’s slots, especially with their fairytale like slot games such as Big Bad Wolf although the minimum betting limit is £0.25, but the maximum is £100 such as the Piped Piper. In a way, the background and symbols remind us of the other fairytale slot games created by Quickspin, they tend to give us players that fun feeling whilst spinning, and of course it wouldn’t be a fairytale game without the enchanting music to go along with it.

Pied Piper Symbols
The symbols in the Pied Piper slot game definitely remind us of the Orient Express slot game by NetEnt since they also included characters as symbols and the whole layout feels quite similar, in a positive light. It can sometimes add a more personal feel to the game when providers include character symbols into their slot games.
The Piper Wild symbol is the biggest symbol in the game, it is a 4x1 Stacked Wild symbol which you will recognise from the Piper Re-spins feature in the game. The Piper Wild symbol can only appear on reels 3, 4, or 5 during both the base game, and the Free Spins game and it can substitute for all symbols except for Bonus Scatter symbols.
The Mouse Wild symbol is a symbol with one of the mice and the word ‘Wild’ on it, this symbol can substitute for all symbols except for the Piper Wild symbol, and the Bonus Scatter symbol. During the Piper Re-Spins feature, this symbol will be on the reels.
The Bonus Scatter symbol is the Bonus symbol which features the city with the word ‘Bonus’, this symbol will initiate the Free Spins feature. Bonus Scatter symbols can only appear on reels 2, 3, and 4 during the base game.
The Piped Piper Re-spin feature is definitely a ton of fun and one of the best special features in this slot game. In order to trigger the Re-spins you will need to land with a Piper Wild symbol fully on the reels during the base game, although this can also occur during Free Spins mode.
When you are playing this feature, with every Re-spin, the Piper Wild symbol which is the Pied Piper himself and any Mouse Wild symbol will walk one reel to the left. Just as it is in the story, the mice follow him as he plays a tune.
When there is a feature including the word mystery, you know it’s got to be good, and this is exactly what the Mystery Re-Trigger feature is. It is combined with the Piper Respins feature in a sense that it can happen at any moment on the final spin of the Piper Re-spins feature. If you do manage to trigger it, the Piper will appear on the grid from the last reel on the right awarding 5 brand new Re-spins!
The Bonus Scatter symbols in the slot game are represented by a circular symbol with a picture of the city and the words Bonus on it. If you happen to win with three of the Bonus Scatter symbols on your reels during the same spin, you will automatically be given 10 Free Spins!
If that isn’t enough excitement in a feature, then at the same time you will be given 1-6 Mouse Wild symbols randomly added to your reels during each Free Spin.
