NetEnt is praised as one of the leading casino software providers, mainly due to its impeccable slots. The graphic quality, attention to detail, but not less importantly, the great storyline are the things slot fans love about NetEnt’s games. Scruffy Duck is a slot game that embodies all things that a player would expect from a game – solid graphics, cheeky symbols, and multiple intriguing bonus features, plus a pretty high RTP percentage.
Scruffy Duck features 5 reels and 25 pay-lines. It can be played for as little as 25p and it is available on both mobile and desktop devices. The theme is a rather familiar one, the story of the duckling that is about to become a beautiful swan. The game has multiple bonus features and the symbols include both thematic symbols and standard card symbols.
But it should be noted that even the card symbols are in accordance with the theme, as each symbol appears to be coming out from a cracking egg. The four duck symbols are all holding objects in their hands. The mobile phone duck is the highest-valued symbol in the game. The reels are set on a lake and you can notice frogs and leaves around.
The return to player percentage is above 96, it is 96.38% to be more precise, which is quite good. It may not be the highest RTP, but it definitely ranks better than most other games, since anything above 96% is considered to be more than OK.
The Scruffy Duck itself, the main character is also the wild symbol. Recently there have been quite a few games that feature and expanding wild and this slot is no exception, the expanding wild may appear in the main game, as well as during the free spins bonus. As it expands, the scruffy duck metamorphoses into a lovely swan. There is one free spins bonus, but once it is activated, there are multiple options.
The free spins begin whenever there are 3 free spin symbols anywhere on the last three reels. When the free spins bonus is activated the player can choose one of the available ducks and the choice activates one of the available 5 features.
The multiplier feature will give you 15 free spins, but also a triple multiplier. If the randomly selected duck activates the symbol removal feature, you will receive 12 spins, but you will also see the symbols of lower value leaving the reels, making way for the more lucrative ones.
The colossal wild is another interesting feature. Here you get only 10 free spins, but there’s also an extra-large colossal wild symbols, it can be either 2x2 or 3x3. The colossal wild can appear on reels two, three and four and it if it forms a winning combination it will be divided into multiple individual wilds – between 2 and 9.
The random wild feature awards 8 free spins, but with extra random wilds which are added on each of the free spins. There can be between 2 and 5 of the wilds, but they won’t expand. And finally, we have the double features, where you get six free spins, but you will also get two other random features.
During the free spins game you can win a maximum of 1,200 and this can be achieved during the double and the multiplier feature, but the prizes that can be won in the other free spin modes are also quite high. For example, during the colossal wild you can win up to 400 coins per spin.
Scruffy Duck has both the recognisable quality of NetEnt’s slots, but also enough unique features to be a masterpiece of its own kind. The prizes are quite high, it is a medium variance game with a perfect balance between win frequency and prize amount. The RTP percentage guarantees that you’ll have a fair chance of winning. When the free spins are triggered you are guaranteed to have fun and win a decent amount of money. All in all, it is a quite inviting slot game.
