As the New Year is just a few hours away now, online casino players can be assured that 2018 is going to be a bumper year for new slot titles being launched by a variety of different developers.
Quickspin is the first on our list to offer up a new title for 2018 and it’s the Pied Piper slot that is due to be released on 9th January.
Another legend is being brought to life as a slot game by Quickspin. The legend dates back to the Middle Ages and sees the town of Hamelin overrun with rats.
The Pied Piper was hired to rid the town of the vermin but it is said that when his fee was not paid, he lured away 130 children to a cave and they were never seen again.
Other versions suggest he took the children to the river to drown in the same way as the rats did.In the slot game from Quickspin, it’s not rats that you will see on the reels but mice (they are cuter). Other symbols on the five reel, 40-payline game include the King and Queen, the Princess and the key to the town. The usual cards – 10 through to A, complement these.
The game boasts a few bonus features and these are:
If one of the Piper Wilds land on a reel and covers the whole column, the feature is triggered. The Piper wild and any standard mouse wilds will walk a reel to the left on each respin.
The Piper wild symbol only appears on reels 3, 4 and 5.
When the Piper Respin is on its final spin, you could be graced with a Mystery Re-trigger. If this happens, the Piper appears at the further reel on the right and awards a further five spins.
To trigger the free spins you need three bonus scatter symbols on the reels. You will be awarded 10 spins and between one and six mouse wilds will be added to the reels on each spin.

The game will be available at most of the popular online casinos that we have reviewed, but we recommend Intercasino.
