The Scruffy Duck slot might offer fantastic bonus features and graphics, but when it comes to its gameplay, it takes everything back to the basics. The release is played on five reels and three rows, with 25 paylines. You can’t adjust the fixed paylines but you can choose your bet level.
The total bet is calculated by multiplying the bet level by the coin value and 25 paylines. You can select the bet level, between one and 10, while the coin value must be set between 0.01 and 1. This takes the total bet within a wide range of €0.25 and €250, making the slot accessible to all players irrespective of their gambling budget. You can directly bet with the highest level with the Bet Max button.
You can spin the reels by clicking on the spin button or selecting autoplay for automatic spins. All wins count only when they are in consecutive reels from the leftmost reel to the right. Your wins are multiplied by the bet level.
The Scruffy Duck slot is filled with different duck symbols, as well as lower-paying icons. The slot features a wild, which is the duckling, but when it expands, it’s in the form of a swan. There is also a free spins symbol.
