<pid=”toptitle”>Will you dance to the merry tune of this Pied Piper mobile slot? We think you will once you experience those walking wilds.
Quickspin love wild symbols in their video slots. You get the huge sticky wilds in their Sticky Bandit phone slot, and the randomly added wilds in the FairyGate game.
You’d think there wasn’t much else out of the ordinary that they could do with wilds, but once again, they surprise us, as they twist the well-known walking wild feature.
That’s when a wild symbol ‘walks’ from one side of the screen to the other, usually moving one reel at a time with a free re-spin.
It was made popular in the Jack and the Beanstalk mobile game by NetEnt, and then copied countless times, from Rabcat’s Gnome Wood to Elk Studios Wild Toro.
So it’s not new, but here Quickspin uses the theme and the feature seamlessly, creating a fun an unusual way to get those walking wilds.
The wild symbols are represented by the white mouse symbols. Every once in a while, the Pied Piper himself will show up on either reels 3, 4 or 5, covering the whole reel.
He is wild himself, but as he wanders across the screen, he gives you anything from 3 to 5 free re-spins; but not just any re-spins. Any wild mice caught during his walk will follow him along the screen with each free re-spin.
We’ve gotten as many as 5 extra wilds on screen, and with one full reel wild every time, gotten over 80x our bet wins on numerous occasions.
An extra little incentive to play on this Pied Pier slot game; it’s not just the re-spin that will keep you hooked.
Although granted, this Quickspin video slot seems to go one of two ways: no re-spins in the base game, but then lots of free spin bonus features, or lots of re-spins in the main game, but the free spins don’t come for 100+ spins.
Either way, you’ve got something keeping you company and making the spins exciting.
Just make sure you watch your budget, the Piper has been known to be vengeful: you don’t want all your cash to fall off a cliff now do you?

Wilds: The white mouse holding the wild card is the wild symbol and will replace all other symbols on screen to create a win over 20 paylines.
Piper Respins: The piper symbol comes stacked three high across reels 2, 3, or 4. However if he lands and cover the whole reels, or just magically appears, he will start a series of re-spins.
He will then walk across this 5 reel slot machine, one reel at a time, from right to left. If any any wild symbols land whilst he is walking, they get 'trapped' by his merry tune, and walk across the screen with him, until he finally walks off reel 1.
Depending on which reel he lands, you can trigger anything from 3 to 5 respins.
Mystery Retrigger: Once the Piper walks off the screen during the re-spins, that is generally it.
However, every once in a while, he walks back in from reel 5 and you get a further 5 re-spins, with the wilds following him as always.
It makes for an exciting slot bonus game round.
Scatters and Free Spins: Get 3 bonus scatter symbols anywhere on screen and you'll trigger 10 free spins.
What makes this special is that you generally get anything from 1 to 6 extra wild symbol on each spin; which if you also manage to catch the Pied Pier turns into a wild bonanza like no other.
Well worth the wait, if you can afford to be a little patient.
Don't underestimate this Pied Pier slot on mobile, with it's easy medieval charm and royal purples, you could be forgiven that this fairytale always has a happy ending.
However, anyone who knows the original tale, knows that you have to be careful when dealing with this mouse catcher - watch your budget for those times when you seem to be waiting forever to trap any wild.
However, get those re-spins going and the find the piper in a good mood, and you'll be dancing to his merry tune, wondering why you ever doubted him in the first place.
Fun, refreshing take on the walking wilds, it doesn't have the quick action of the Mayana slot, but keeps you coming back to play a merry tune.
