Scruffy Duck Slot Review (Netent)
The Ugly Duckling is a bit more glammed up in the Scruffy Duck slot machine. Rather than being ugly, he is just looking a little bit shabby. Thankfully, he is also going to be bringing prizes galore in your direction, and we really can’t complain too much about that!
How to Play Scruffy Duck Slot Review
The Scruffy Duck slot was released in January 2017. It is a video slot which offers 5 reels across 25 paylines. This is a low to medium volatility slot machine with a house edge of 3.62%. The minimum bet is 25p. The maximum bet is £250.
It is tough to get a hyper-realistic slot machine about a duck which is looking a little bit worse for wear. Thankfully, the team at NetEnt did not even think about attempting that.
This game is all about the cutesy graphics. We must say, the team have done a tremendous job with them too. They are detailed, and even though this game can currently only be found on one online casino (more on that in a short while), the game still had a lot of love poured into it, so we have no real complaints.
Since this is a NetEnt game, you can expect it to be simple to play. It has been designed to lure in those newer players. However, have no fear, the experienced players (like us) will still have a ton of fun playing it. The features crop up often enough, and the machine pays out often enough, for you have a ton of fun with it. Basically, this game is just going to be great to play for just about everybody.
Bonus Rounds & In Game Features
Scruffy Duck Wilds: The feature that will be popping up the most (if you can call it a feature), is the Wild. This is the duck. He looks like he has been through a bit, so we are going to assume that the wild is also the scruffy duck. Sadly, the slotdoes not have that much of a backstory.
We just know that there is a duck who probably has not had a shower in a while (invent your own story, much more fun!). Anyway, this wild, as with every other wild, acts as a replacement for the various other symbols that may appear on a slot machine. However, unlike other wilds on slot machines, this one expands to cover the whole reel whenever it appears, which is nifty.
Some of the higher paying symbols in the game, also ducks, albeit less scruffy, are stacked symbols. They appear 2 to 3 high on the reels. This means that you have a greater chance of winning when they crop up.
Free Spins Feature: The main highlight of this game is the free spins feature. This occurs if you get 3 or more scatter symbols on the reels at the same time. You will then be taken to a second screen where you will be asked to choose from ducks. Each duck awards something different:
- 15 free spins, 3x multiplier
- 12 free spins, all low paying symbols in the game are removed
- 10 free spins with a colossal wild.
- 8 free spins with up to 5 wilds on the screen at once.
- 6 free spins PLUS a combination of two of the features above. This is one of our favourites (note: you only get six free spins)
Scruffy Duck Mobile Slot
When it comes to NetEnt mobile slot machines, you can expect them to be exceedingly fun to play. Like, amazingly fun to play. That is exactly what the Scruffy Duck mobile slot brings to the table.
We don’t really want to say that it is one of the most mobile slots that we have played, but it is. Bit cliché, we know, but the game is just so smooth and looks so great on even the smallest of devices that we could not really help ourselves there.
Summary – What Do We Think?
All in all, this game is exceedingly fun to play. It certainly is one of our favourite games to come from the house of NetEnt in recent years. Highly recommended by us!
