Look and feel
As the name suggests Scruffy Duck focuses on ducks so you can expect the slot design to come with a lot of aquatic features. The backdrop itself is a water pond with Lilly pads and cute little green frogs floating around. The reels are transparent so you will have a clear view of the pond and the symbols will look like floating objects on the animated watery backdrop. There are also a few insects flying around while you spin for big wins. On the reels you will find low value symbols that are regular card value symbols peeping out of cracked eggs. The high value symbols are 4 ducks with their own style. There is a father, mother and brother duck and then there is little baby duck who just doesn’t seem to fit.
Sound and score
The soundtrack has been created to have a fun and upbeat yet relaxing ambience that will leave you feeling like you are taking a relaxing stroll next to the pond. The soundtrack is light-hearted and soft enough that it won’t become annoying too quickly. On the other hand some might not appreciate the quack calls from the Scruffy duck but for them there is a mute option available.
