Scruffy Duck Pokie Review

Net Entertainment’s brand new Scruffy Duck pokie machine is very loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling. This new pokie machine doesn’t stay entirely accurate to the tale, and instead, the Scandinavian online casino software features graphics which are far more modern, and up to date.

Ducks with mobile phones, shades and boom boxes are just one example. Just like in the fairy tale, there is a majestic swan that our scruffy duck will turn into, and it is easily one of the most important symbols in the pokie.

Net Entertainment have done a cracking job turning a much-loved children’s tale into a pokie, and alongside their Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood pokie, they are developing quite a penchant for it.

How to play

Like most Net Entertainment developed pokie machines, you’ve got no chance of altering the paylines in this game. Instead, players can look at adjusting the coin values in the game, from a floor of $0.01 up to a ceiling of $1.00 in all.

Players will also be able to wager up to 10 of those coins per payline. At its cheapest, the Scruffy Duck pokie is going to cost you around about $0.25 per spin, whilst at its costliest, you are looking at wagers which are capped at $250 a spin on this 5-reel, 25-line pokie.

Wild symbols: Wild symbols appear as scruffy duck symbols in this game. However, when they form a part of a winning combination, they can expand into a fully grown and gorgeous swan. Expanding wilds appears in both the base game and the free spins. The only icon they cannot replace is the scatter symbol.

Free spin symbol: Scatter icons (known in this pokie as free spin symbols) can appear on the third, fourth, and fifth reels of the pokie. You will need to land them on all three at the same time to trigger a free spins bonus.

Free spins bonus: There is a free spins bonus round in this pokie, and it can offer you one of 5 features to choose from. The Multiplier Feature offers 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier. The Symbol Removal feature promises 12 free spins with the lowest paying symbols removed from the reels.

Colossal Wild bonuses can offer 10 free games with colossal wild icons on the reels, whilst the Random Wild bonus naturally promises random wilds on the reels during 8 free spins. The final option is the Double Feature which offers 6 free spins with all images counting as double icons. This can be mean you can win with ten-of-a-kind winning combinations.

Maximum payouts

The top prize in the Scruffy Duck pokie is fixed at 400 coins. To win that cash prize, players are going to need to land 5 of the mobile-phone holding duck (let’s call him father duck) symbols on any active payline.


It is blatantly obvious just what NetEnt were thinking of when they developed their Scruffy Duck pokie. Nobody has tried to duplicate The Ugly Duckling in the pokie world before, so we must take our hat off to NetEnt for pulling this offer. Although the Scruffy Duck pokie is being launched as a limited release at this moment in time, expect it to receive a more general launch as the weeks go by.
