Quickspin is one of the first game developers to release a new slot this year. In fact, their newest slot, Pied Piper, is already coming out tomorrow! So, if you enjoyed their 2017 releases, such as Sticky Bandits or Wins of Fortune, you can’t miss this debut. But if you need some more convincing, we’re here precisely for that.
Quickspin’s Pied Piper Slot
The Pied Piper slot revolves around the fairytale of none other than the pied piper. He has a magical pipe and can lure out rats when he plays it. That’s exactly what we see in this slot. Although the story soon becomes much darker (as all fairytales do), the slot doesn’t explore that part. Instead, it’s as jolly and colourful as the pied piper himself.
So, you can play this game whenever you want some fun and a merry tune. This game could even be suitable for children if it wasn’t a casino slot. It seems Quickspin didn’t take heed to the recent concern that the UKGC expressed about children-oriented games. According to them, such titles potentially increases the risk of underage gambling. However, even NetEnt has loads of ambiguous slots like Scruffy Duck and adult players love them nonetheless. We don’t think that kids would feel the same way, though. Anyway, back to the Pied Piper slot.
As you could see from the video preview, it’s a pretty simple, but highly rewarding game. It’s a 5-reel slot with four lines each. There are 40 paylines and an RTP of over 96.3 per cent. Thanks to its amazing special features, the slot is somewhere between the medium and high on the variance scale. Whether you’re in the base game or in the bonus, you can win quite a lot without any prior notice.
Pied Piper Special Features
The highlight of this slot is its wild symbols and the re-spins they can come with. Aside from the regular wilds, there’s a stacked wild that occupies all the positions of a single reel. It shows the pied piper and is, therefore, called Piper Wild. Not only does it occupy four lines, it’s also sticky. Because if you manage to get this wild to cover the whole reel, Piper Re-Spins will be activated.
During each Piper Re-Spin, the stacked wild will move one reel to the left. Alongside it, all the regular wilds, if any are present, will move too. The re-spins will continue until the stacked wild moves out of the screen. However, sometimes, after moving away from the leftmost reel, the pied piper will emerge on the rightmost reel, giving five more re-spins!
There’s also the bonus round which you can trigger by collecting three scatter symbols. The bonus consists of 10 extra spins. During each spin, from one to six wilds will be added as overlays on the reels. If you manage to get the pied piper wild too, this can mean up to ten wilds in total, and up to five such re-spins. It goes without saying that you can easily win a fortune this way.
So, if you feel like following the pied piper, the slot will be available tomorrow, on 9th January, at Quickspin casinos. Alternatively, you can play it today at LeoVegas – a casino that often offers not-yet-released games to their players.
