NetEnt have provided players with a number of novelty-themed slot games in the past and their Scruffy Duck slot game is certainly one that fits the bill (excuse the pun).
Our Scruffy Duck game review found that this video slot is based around ducks that are at a pond and features a number of childish cartoon-style graphics. However, that should not put players off, as there are some great bonus features in store for those who do spin the reels.
This NetEnt slot game follows a rather traditional playing format as the grid provided consists of five reels and three rows in which the game’s icons can appear. There are 25 fixed paylines available to form a winning combination on.
Bets from €0.25 and up to €250 per spin can be placed when playing for real money, whilst those that want to test it out can play the Scruffy Duck free play version above, where they can also test out the gameplay experience provided as ‘Max Bet’ and ‘Autoplay’ functions remain provided.
The paytable consists of a number of different icons that range from the low-value playing card values (J, Q, K, A) and a number of different ducks. These symbols can all appear stacked on the reels, although the biggest win available is 400x the bet.
However, the expanding Wild duck icon is perhaps the best icon available in the game as this has the power to substitute for any of the other icons on the paytable, whilst also expanding across the reels to help form winning combinations across the 25 paylines.
The Scruffy Duck bonus feature available in this NetEnt slot game is one that can be considered rather exciting as it can produce some great rewards. It is a free spins feature and can be triggered when three or more of the ‘Free Spins’ icons appear in any positon on the reels.
Before the bonus takes place, players will need to play a pick ‘em style game which will determine how many free spins will be awarded and the feature that will be in place. There are five different possibilities:
- 15 free spins with multiplier feature: all wins will be boosted by a x3 multiplier.
- 12 free spins with symbol removal: one symbol from the reels will be removed to help make more winning combinations.
- 10 free spins with colossal wild: a large Wild icon will be added to the reels to create bigger winning options.
- 8 free spins with random wilds: 2 to 5 wilds will appear randomly on the reels for every free spin.
- 6 free spins with double feature: this will choose two of the features at random to be played at the same time during the free spins.
The expanding Wild icon can also still appear in the bonus game and do what it does in the base game.
