Pipeliner by Merkur is a very well-thought-out concept. The screen is industrial in appearance, with the background filled with steam and cogs. Hexagonal-shaped positions on the screen reveal pipes laid out in various directions and configurations; make the pipes line up from the top to the bottom of the screen and you win a prize. The wins are fantastic and can be boosted by the appearance of special gem multipliers. There are five-reel equivalents on the screen made from interlocking hexagonal positions that make up a grid of 12 shapes.
There are six pipes feeding the grid: three on the second ‘reel’ and three on the fourth ‘reel’. There are five pipes at the bottom connecting to each of the reels. There are no paylines running horizontally on this game; instead, when the spin has been triggered, you must link up the pipes to run from the top to the bottom of the screen.
You can choose your wager from 0.05, 0.10, 0.20, 0.50, 1.00, 2.00, 5.00 and 10.00, and you will retain your bet if you manage to connect the start to the tail pipe. Connecting is just the start, as this game is full of bonus features when the gemstones are added to the mix.
The pipe sections can offer a precious stone with a multiplier value. There are yellow gems, purple, red, green and blue gems. They all offer great rewards depending on what you can find down the pipeline. The yellow multiplies by two, purple by three, red by five, green by seven, and blue by ten.
You can have more than two gems per line, with the winnings calculated by adding the multiplier total separately; for example, if you find a purple (three) and a red (five) on a line bet of two, six and ten will be added to make 16, rather than multiplying them to make 30. You can play with more than one pipeline at a time to boost your chances of winning.
If the pipes and gems are not enough to keep you interested in this game, there is also a wild to play for. This wild, which is in the form of a male gold-seeker, will be looking along your pipelines to make a connection. When he appears, he will connect all six sides of the hexagon, with the bonus of a 10x multiplier whenever he helps to complete a connection from top to bottom. Here’s hoping this valuable wild will make an appearance often during your game. Try this unique game for free today or check out the other free slots on our site!
