Since 2017, Scruffy Duck Touch® is part to NetEnt’s rich animal kingdom! We enjoy rich and funny pigs in Piggy Riches Touch®. But the most impressive animals are available in Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild Touch®. If you want to go for funny, you look for mischievous monkeys in Go Bananas Touch®.
I totally understand the animals being a popular source of inspiration as you can go many ways with them. You can make pigs fly, spoil them rotten with diamonds or give them a mischievous character.
The Ugly Duckling
You can make them look either smart, cool, childish, or nerdy. The latter is the case with the ducks in Scruffy Duck Touch®. Nerdy isn’t the right word to use, though, as the fifth duck is just different from the others.
When he grows up, it comes out why the duck isn’t a normal duck. He appears to be a member of the swan family. Growing up, the duck’s misery comes to an end. It appears that the ugly scruffy duck is actually a beautiful swan, becoming the most beautiful of them all.
I’m sure that this story sounds familiar to many of you. After all, it has a lot in common with The Ugly Duckling. This story was first published 11 November 1843 by the Danish author Hans Christian Andersen.
No doubt that the old fairytale inspired NetEnt for Scruffy Duck Touch® inspired. In a simple attempt, NetEnt brought the fairytale to live on the reels.
Four Ducks and a Swan
Launched in between two regular mobile slots, Scruffy Duck Touch® doesn’t offer the best design available in a NetEnt slot. You better not expect advanced animations as seen in Divine Fortune Touch® or Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild Touch® launched earlier in 2017.
Scruffy Duck Touch® is worth playing, though, thanks to a recognizable theme, bright colours and chill-out music. Set on the surface of a pond, you’ll find yourself surrounded by lilies, frogs, four ducks and a swan. They enjoy themselves in different ways. Having a bath, give presents, walking around with a ghetto blaster, or turning into a beautiful swan.
Scruffy Duck Touch® features
Although inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s famous fairytale, NetEnt clearly gave the story a fresh touch. Innovation is one of NetEnt’s priorities. This can also be seen in the slot features Scruffy Duck Touch® offers. It’s therefore that you can enjoy Stacked symbols, Free Spins, and an amazing five different features during Free Spins.
Most important in Scruffy Duck Touch® is the Expanding Wild, during the main game, as well as during Free Spins. Appearing as a single Wild symbol on the reels, the ugly duckling will turn into a beautiful swan. He then becomes an Expanding Wild.
No matter when or where the ugly duckling appears. As long as the ugly duckling is involved in a winning combination, it expands over the entire reel. Here it substitutes for any other symbol, except the Free Spins symbols.
While the Expanding Wild is the main attraction during the main game, I’m sure you’ll look forward to the Free Spins symbols as well, as three of them on the reels 3, 4, and 5 will activate the Free Spins feature.
Don’t be surprised when straight after you see five ducks jumping into the water. It’s up to you to pick one so you’ll know if it’s the Multiplier feature, Symbol Removal feature, Colossal Wild, Random Wilds or Double feature that will be active during your 6-15 Free Spins.
The number of free spins will depend on the extra feature activated. The more profitable the feature, the less free spins. No matter how many free spins or whatever slot feature you activate, big wins are around the corner.
