There are loads of animal themed slots on the market but Scruffy Duck might just catch your eye. This NetEnt game will have you heading down to the lake to bob for prizes, just make sure you wrap up warm when you head on over there. If you’re a fan of games with a cartoon theme and interesting bonus features, then give this one a spin.
If you’re accustomed to games from this developer, then you’ll know exactly how to get betting and playing. The two sliders that are situated just under the reels are easy to spot and use. The level and coins can be tinkered with to change the bet without changing your chance of winning. There are three rows, five reels and a total of 25 fixed pay lines to match your symbols on.
You’ll notice that every free space on this game is occupied by either a playing card symbol or a special duck. They each have different properties and multipliers attached to them, full details of which can be found in the paytable. This is your guide to the game and it will tell you everything you need to know about those symbols.
This game also takes some inspiration from the Ugly Duckling tale, as you’ll notice that one of these ducks looks a bit geekier than the others. Fear not, this duckling is the wild symbol and he can grow into a swan before your eyes. He’ll grow up right before your eyes to take up the entire reel, allowing for more combinations to be made. He can become a part of any winning combo, with the exception of ones that contain the free spins symbol.
On to the free spins round, you can’t miss this symbol as it’s pretty easy to spot. The symbol simply has the words ‘free spins’ on it, styled in on a wooden sign much like the ones you would see at a duck pond. With three of these you’ll be headed to the free spins round but you must make a very important choice first.
When you unlock this round, you’ll see a total of five features available to select, each of which will affect the gameplay. They’ll also affect how many spins you will receive, as the better the feature the less spins will be awarded.
If you want to play with the highest amount of spins then you can pick the tripling multiplier. When you do, you’ll get 15 free spins and all your winnings will be subject to a 3x multiplier. You could also pick the symbol removal perk, which will take away winning symbols allowing for consecutive wins. Further down the table, you’ll see the random wild perk, which will only give you 8 spins but there are more wild symbols on the reels as you play. It’s up to you to pick the most rewarding feature!
Scruffy Duck is an excellent slot game that can be played at the drop of a hat, watch out for those bonus features to really make a splash.
