Scruffy Duck Slot – Free Play and Review

NetEnt sets this 5 reel 25 payline slot in a duck world where ducks live as modern day humans. In the middle of the pond you can see ducks walking around with mobile phones, going to work all dressed up or hanging around with the frogs and insects. There is one little duck in this story that might sound familiar. A poor little thing wearing glasses and a naïve smile is the laughing stock of the duck city.

Still, what nobody knows is that this scruffy duckling is just waiting for its moment to transform into a beautiful and lucrative swan. You will be happy to see it as it is the Expanding Wild which can pay dividends in this video slot.

Coming from NetEnt it is no surprise to see sharp and vibrant graphics adding a cartoony and comical feel to the story. Scruffy Duck benefits from four different Free Spins games with various special features and the good news is that you can play it on the go as it comes available on mobile devices too.

Developer

NetEnt are Swedish veterans in the online gaming software business which is confirmed year in, year out by their numerous awards on prestigious events. Cutting-edge technology in combination with innovative approach with a focus on user experience seem to be the recipe for success.

NetEnt’s slots are among the best there are, with a wide range of themes including branded slots such as Jimi Hendrix or Motörhead released last year.

How to Play It

Scruffy Duck shows a pretty straightforward 5×3 spinner with transparent reels set against the cartoony pond. The reel grid keeps 25 win lines in store which are active all the time, so the bet amount applies to all of the lines. The bet can be

The bet can be customised through bet level between 1 and 10 and the coin value ranging from 0.01 to 1. To avoid the hassle of calculation you can hit Maxbet button and stake the maximum amount. Naturally, there is the Autospin option next to the spin button, which can come in handy during dry spins.

The winning combinations are formed from left to right and the symbols pay when found on the paylines in groupings of three, four or five matching symbols. The top paying symbols are Mr. Duck who appears as businessman negotiating

The top paying symbols are Mr. Duck who appears as businessman negotiating new deal over his mobile phone, Lady Duck just out of the hair salon, a teenager duck chilling with his radio set and the kid duck with holding a lollipop. The rest of the images on the reels are depicted as eggs hatching regular playing cards letters.

Our hero of the game, Scruffy Duck will appear as Wild and transform into a magnificent swan that spreads across the whole reel. This happens only whenWild is a part of the winning combination of symbols. Wild can participate in forming a winning combination with any icon but the Scatter.

The Scatter is a Free Spins trigger sign and tit appears on reels 3, 4 or 5. All of the ducks appear stacked on the reels, which increases players chances of landing a paying combination.

Special Features

Scruffy Duck is all about the Free Spins, but these free games come with a twist of their own. Actually, with four twists. As mentioned above the Free Spins trigger bonus appears on the last three reels and when it appears on all three of them at the same time that is when the players are granted free play.

Free games come in four variations, one of which is awarded randomly when the Free Spins are triggered. One option is to get 15 Free Spins with a 3x multiplier to your wins. The second option is to get 12 Free Spins with Symbol Removal feature which takes away all of the low-paying symbols from the reels.

You could also be granted 10 Free Spins with Colossal Wild feature when the Swan appears in all its greatness as a 2×2 or 3×3 giant symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4.Another variation of the Free Spins brings 8 Free Spins with Random Wilds feature which adds up to 5 random wilds to the reels. The last option you could get is 6 Free Spins with two of the above mentioned features.

The main feature active in both the main game and the free play is the Expanding Wild feature during which the ugly duckling transforms into a swan. This happens only when the Wild forms a paying combination with other symbols. During the Free Spins the Wild does not expand when Random Wilds feature is active, while during the Colossal Symbol feature it expands only on reels 1 and 5.

Maximum Payout

The maximum amount you can win as advertised by the developer sis 300,000 coins which comes down to 1,200 times your stake, but only if you bet the maximum amount of $250. Well, to win big you have to bet big.

If you do not have the ambition of winning the top prize, do not turn away as Scruffy Duck is pretty affordable starting from $0.25.As we are used to seeing in NetEnt’s slots the return to player is solid at 96,68%

Summary

Scruffy Duck is somewhat of a surprise from NetEnt with its childlike cartoony theme and the apparently basic game play. However, we know better than to judge NetEnt’s slots at first sight, so after a couple of spins and expanding wilds you see why NetEnt are one of the best in business.

The different variations of Free Spins will keep you spinning until you get each one of them, while the best would be if you could get 6 Free Spins with two active features. The top prize and the wide betting range make Scruffy Duck attractive for any kind of player.
