1.3out of 5 stars
Setting the SceneIt’s no surprise that the feathered namesake of this game hangs out around a pond, and that’s where you’ll find both Scruffy and his friends, along with frogs and bees, all living harmoniously with nature. This 25 payline slot doesn’t allow for a lot of adjustment to wagers and lines played, but this fits with the general slow, relaxed, more traditional (or basic) approach to slots.
Cute Cartoon IconsAll of the symbols are cutesy and appealing, despite being very definitely in the childish zone. Scruffy Duck is easy to spot as it’s now a swan with bright white plumage and a golden crown, and four other ducks with distinct personalities and styles also make an appearance across the 5 reels of this Net Ent video slot. They can be identified by the distinct accessory each carries, which include a stereo, phone and gift. The letters A, J, Q & K are also part of this game, with each emerging from an egg as if hatching. This is a fun touch which adds to the atmosphere of a fairly simple game and storyline.
Rewards and RichesScruffy Duck pays out fairly low sums when players match 5 icons on a spin, with the duck using the phone - paying 400 coins for 5 matches - being the best opportunity to win big. The remaining ducks offer between 100-250 for 5 matches. The biggest payouts come from the bonus option which concentrates only on Wilds and free spins. The expanding Wild duck symbol grows to help create more winning combinations on all paylines, and can replace any icon barring the free spin option.
Spin Yourself Round and RoundGet ready to cheer when three or more free spin icons pop up at the same time in any reel position, as this is your opportunity to play one of five fabulous bonus rounds, each offering free spins plus an additional reward. Briefly, these are: Colossal Wild - free spins and a huge wild icon really should boost your winning pot Random Wild - you get 8 free spins here too, each triggering 2-5 wilds which will appear randomly. X 3 multiplier - bag 15 free spins, plus anything won from them is boosted x 3! Double feature - 6 free spins are on offer here No Low Win symbols - a generous 12 free spins are yours to enjoy, plus a low paying symbol is taken from the reels, boosting your chances of winning a decent payout.
Enjoy the GameScruffy Duck may have all the hallmarks of a traditional free slots game but don’t be fooled by the cartoon appearance or the simplicity of this title. Underneath it all are lots of chances to win decent payouts, while having lots of fun..
