Strategy & Tips
The white mouse stands for Wild which not only that replaces all regular symbols, but also pays 20x your bet if 5 of these land on a payline. It replaces all symbols but Piper Wild and Bonus Scatter.
Piper Wild is yet another desirable icon as it activates the Piper Respin feature. It appears as a stacked 4x1 symbol on the reels 3, 4 or 5 both in the main game and free spins substituting for all symbols except for Bonus Scatter. It is a full reel Walking Wild which will take a stroll from right to left accompanied with Mouse Wild symbols to help you earn hefty payouts. Mystery Piper Wild might re-enter the rightmost reel on the final spin of the Piper Respins Feature and award 5 additional respins.
However, Bonus Scatter doesn’t appear during this feature. It lands only on the reels 2, 3 or 4 in the base game and three of these award 10 free spins. During the feature, up to 6 Mouse Wilds can be randomly added to the reels.
The game is fully mobile-optimized, so you can play it on the go if you choose to or stay at home to try your luck. But, beware not to get too mesmerized by the joyous tunes of the Piper and bet wisely, as the game has a potential to award generously.
