A story of the ugly duckling that couldn’t fit in and was rejected by his flock until it grow into a majestic swan has sad and a much heavier connotation than you thought when you first heard it as a child. There’s no need to get into that, especially since NetEnt did such a good job of presenting it in a super-fun light in its Scruffy Duck slot with adorable visuals and thrilling gameplay.
Betting Options & Bonus Features
Get ready to be swept away by a wave of fun covering a 5x3 grid with 25 paylines. You can join in this laid-back atmosphere with killer music by placing a bet anywhere from €0.25 to €250. With an RTP of 96.38%, the game features medium volatility and a rather disappointing maximum winning potential of only up to 1,200x the bet.
A young scruffy duck is the most important symbol with a role of Wild and the ability to substitute for all other symbols except Scatter. But there’s a twist - it can transform into a beautiful swan and become Expanding Wild symbol to cover a full reel if it results in a bet line win. Expanding Wilds can appear in both base gameplay and during the free spins feature.
Speaking off, the bonus round is activated when three Scatters pictured as ‘free spins’ sign land in any position on reels 3, 4 and 5. When the free spins feature is triggered, five ducks appear on a screen and players get to choose one that will randomly award one of these free spin modes:
- Multiplier Feature – Awards 15 free spins where all wins are multiplied by 3x
- Symbol Removal – All low pay symbols are removed from reels during 12 free spins
- Colossal Wild feature – The player gets 10 free spins with colossal 2x2 or 3x3 Wilds appearing on reels 2, 3, or 4 only, fully or partially in view. When part of winning combinations Colossal Wilds split into 2-9 single Wilds.
- Random Wild Modifier – 2 to 5 Wilds are randomly added to the grid on each of 8 free spins. Random Wilds can’t expand, nor do they take the place of any active Expanding Wilds.
- Double feature – 6 free spins are awarded with 2 of the above features randomly activated.
This old classic has been around for a long time, but it’s still quite popular. Not because of its potential that is honestly on the lower end, but because it’s awesome music and good feeling. Don’t expect to win big on medium volatile Scruffy Duck slot, come here only to listen to the music and dance.
Troops already know that its soundtrack is my favorite jam. So much that I have created a special dance to go alongside it. Think of its as a night out instead of a chance to score big, as you probably won’t.
