Ever long for a quiet, relaxed stroll down to your local pond to feed the ducks? Well Scruffy Duck, the slot machine from NetEnt has got you covered! Players looking for action may want to look elsewhere as the relaxed background music and chirping birds offers a much more subdued playing experience.
That doesn’t mean the slot is devoid of features however. This 5-reel video slot has 25 paylines and offers a high volatility level with symbols that stack often meaning a longer wait for winning combinations. In addition to relaxed sound design, Scruffy Duck presents its feathered friends in distinct cartoon-like graphics.
NetEnt is known for its blockbuster partnerships so if you’re looking for something to get your heart racing, check out the “NetEnt rocks” series including slots based on classic rock icons such as Guns n Roses, Jimi Hendrix and Motorhead.

About the game
One of the key selling points of Scruffy Duck is its simplicity. Players need only navigate across 25 fixed paylines, with only the coin value, size and bet level needing to be adjusted. The minimum bet starts at O.25 credits and can be increased to the maximum of 250.00 credits.
However wins are relatively rare, with a low range of prizes in the paytable therefore players will have to be much more patient in waiting for the perfect combination of icons to appear in order to gain the maximum returns. Keep an eye out for the expanding wild duck icon, as this icon is essential in completing those winning formations.
But don’t get in a quack! There are other ways to reap some larger returns. The free spins bonus round feature is triggered when three or more ‘Free Spins’ icons appear in any position on the reels. The player will then be given the opportunity to play a side game to determine the number of free spins and the feature that will be used during the bonus.
The features that can enhance the winning potential include:
- 8 free spins with random wilds: 2 to 5 wilds will land randomly on the reels for every free spin.
- 10 free spins with colossal wilds: adds a large wild icon to the reels for the chance to create bigger winning formations.
- 15 free spins with multiplier feature: a 3x multiplier will boost all wins during the free games.
Scruffy Duck guides the player along a gentle experience with some lighthearted action for those who enjoy a more subdued spin. As a result you get less bang for your buck in regards to big wins, but the bonus features add enough chance to boost your earnings with free spins and engaging bonus features.
