Scruffy Duck pokie
Personal testers opinion about Scruffy Duck
Scruffy Duck pokie usually shows its mood from the very beginning. Do 70-100 spins at the lowest bet and see the result, then decide to play with usual stakes or not. If it is cold, it keeps the account balance very bad. According to the statistic, the free spin feature can be triggered in every 145th spin (0,69%) Bonus hunters should not make bets here. For payments in the free spins feature around 33% of the prize fund is saved. Also, 67% of the fund will go to prizes in the usual spins. My maximum winning during the test was 457x. In the free spins feature, to choose a duck with a Double feature is very important because of hidden maximum potential.
Review and recommendations by the testing team
This pokie, as well as a lot from NetEnt company, gained great popularity after its release. Now it is not very popular among punters, but still, it has its loyal fans.
- During the game, I noticed that the style of the game is similar to the style at Secret of the Stones pokie, always something little is missing for good winnings. Also, these good combinations that reach a full screen of same symbols happen here, but not as often as the losing spins. At the same time, this pokie badly keeps your balance due to the small winnings. So, you should hope for free spin features.
- I have to admit that free spins feature is triggered in portions here, they are missing for a long time, then the features are triggered with very short intervals (up to 2 features in a row). Therefore, if you were waiting for the free spins feature for around 100x - 150x total bets, then you should not leave the game after the first.
- It should be noted that you could guess one of the additional features, such as a multiplier ×3, removal, colossal wild, random wild, the double function in the free spin features. A lot of punters, as a rule, want to get the double feature, although this pokie independently selects 2 features that will participate in the game. These can be the features like removal + a multiplier ×3 for example, and not colossal wild + random wild, on which a lot of users are counting.
- If we are talking about choosing the additional feature, then Scruffy duck pokie, as well as Secret of Christmas from NetEnt company will give you an opportunity to quite easily “calculate” this location of the feature you need by starting from 2 - 3 free spin features. Also, often puts these "removal" and "double functions" on the same places 2 - 3 bonus features in a row.
- Unfortunately, you cannot predict getting a big winning or its lack, regardless of the additional feature. During numerous tests, we observed situations when the pokie gave a minimum reward on the good feature, and for example, this removal feature gave the full screen of the top symbols. As far as I know, it happened quite often.
- As a result, an average value of the free spin features was 20x - 50x total bets, the good free spin features were 150x - 250x total bets, which is a good factor, if we consider the frequency of the free spin features.
- In general, I, as one of the lovers this pokie, would recommend that you play with a minimum reserve of bets balance from 150x total bets in it. Moreover, you should not leave after the first free spin features, and you need to “press” it. It is important to remember that you should pay your attention to the location of certain features and try to understand a regularity of their movements when choosing the additional feature.
I must admit that Scruffy duck is neither from the pokies with low dispersion or with the high dispersion. I consider this is the pokie with the medium dispersion with small winnings during the entire session. In my opinion, if you are a very professional punter and using good tactics and strategies, you can try with bonus money, but for most of you, I give negative recommendations. Otherwise, you should choose another pokie for the game.
