Where to play?
Scruffy Duck will take you into the heart of the countryside where the birds are singing and nature remains untouched – until now. The picturesque countryside is about to be turned from peaceful to manic, thanks to the characters on the reels. There are 5 reels and 25 paylines to this online slot, which are fixed. Bets start at 25p and can rise to as much as £250 a spin – there’s big cash waiting for those who are fearless with their bets. Expanding wilds, free spins, multipliers, colossal wilds, double up feature, scatter symbols, symbols removal feature, random wilds and a maximum base game win of 400x your stake are hiding within the symbols on the reels.
Scruffy Duck Slot Gameplay
A 5×3 grid of symbols are floating on the top of a calm pond and a happy-looking fly will buzz around the plants and symbols to divert your attention away from the control panel – which takes up a lot of screen space. The theme of the slot is based on animals, so you won’t be surprised to see a duck, swan and ducks that have been humanised – mobile clutching male duck, gift bearing female duck, stereo clutching lad and baby duck holding a lollipop. There are also cracked eggs with the card values of J, Q, K and A. Options stamped to the lower of the screen show your bet, level adjuster, autoplay option, spin button, max bet button, coin value adjuster and a panel displaying your coins, bet and balance – so as you can see, it takes up a lot of space.
Payouts and how to win them
Five of a kind is what you need of the mobile clutching duck symbols to trigger a 400x multiplier – big bets will return far bigger cash prizes than players staking the bear minimum. It is the ducks that award the most cash – after the non-progressive jackpot symbol, the second highest paying symbol is the gift bearing female with 250x your stake. Medium value symbols are the stereo lad with 200x your stake and the baby with a lollipop with 150x your stake.
Scruffy Duck Slot Features
Expanding wild symbols can appear in the base game and during the free spins, this is the swan symbol which will substitute for all other symbols (bar free spins) to create wins. Should a swan expanding wild expand – you know you are going to receive a win. Three free spins symbols appearing anywhere on reels 3, 4 and 5 will activate the free spins feature, which can award one of the following;
- 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier – all wins are tripled
- 12 free spins with symbol removal – there are no low value symbols on offer
- 10 free spins with colossal wilds – these are big symbols of 2×2 or 3×3
- 8 free spins with random wilds – 2 to 5 random wilds are added to the reels
- 6 free spins with the double feature – any of the 2 above features can be triggered
Rate or hate?
If you are looking for some light-hearted and simple fun – Scruffy Duck should appeal to you. The animated design and ease of gameplay is perfect for those just entering into the online slots scene. High rollers will accumulate the biggest cash- understandably, but you will have to be wary as wins fall here and there and these are more likely to be low value. A win will keep your bankroll topped up and allowing you to play for longer, but the bonus feature is where the biggest cash can be accumulated – any of the free spins can award colossal cash, but when we were playing, it was the 15 free spins with all wins tripled that boosted our bankroll from 1,000 in demo cash to just over 5,000. Wilds and free spins – that’s all you can expect to trigger, but these are very simple to understand, so you won’t find yourself reaching for the rules and paytable too often.
