Double Up Ducks Slot Review
Before Eyecon Games released Fluffy Too as a sequel to the popular Fluffy Favourites, it can be said that they dabbled with other versions of their popular game. Double Up Ducks for example is a 5 reel, 25 payline slot that seems to include some of the same characters that also appear in Fluffy Favourites. A slots game that features ducks is naturally going to appeal to us here at Loquax so we thought we'd take a much closer look.
As they have done with Fluffy, Eyecon Games have opted to make Double Up Ducks as simplistic as possible. A blue background hosts the slot which has a red and yellow frill circumventing the grey reels. The reels themselves feature cuddly characters including elephant, hippo, fish, panda, monkey, balloons, tickets, turtles and of course ducks.
Despite the name of the slot the pink elephant is the top paying symbol at x9500 for five of a kind. Tickets and the giraffe follow at a huge drop down to x950. Get five ducks and you'll be rewarded with x450 your line wager. Some wins may be gambled via a high/low card game. The gamble can run until you lose, get five wins on the trot or win over £32,000.
Wagering on Double Up Ducks starts at 1p per spin. Use the lines and bet value buttons to increase or decrease your wager. The maximum number of lines is 25 whilst the maximum bet is £2. An Autoplay button gives you the option to watch the ducks spin for 10, 20, 50 or 100 spins. There are no additional autoplay options such as stopping based on losses or wins.
The similarity between Double Up Ducks and Fluffy Favourites is quite striking, especially when comparing bonus features. However these are pretty much staples for the Eyecon Games stable. For example, the pink elephant is back again to act as a Wild Card - prizes are doubled when this appears in a win line! However, replacing the Toy Grabber is the Duck Shooter - get 3 or more of these symbols on a win line and you get 15 free games where prizes are tripled.
If you prefer progressive jackpots with your ducks then Double Up Ducks Jackpot is available as an additional game. This has all the same paylines and features of the original game but it comes with three potential jackpots - Mini, that must be won before £50, Maxi, that must be won before £500 and the Mega Jackpot that must fall before it hits £15,000. These jackpots are shared with other jackpot versions of the Eyecon Games titles.
With a name like Double Up Ducks you'd expect to find the ducks are the star of the show. Instead they're pretty much usurped by a pink elephant who acts as a wild. For us the duck scatter symbol doesn't really add enough to the justify the game's title. This is simply a version of Fluffy and because of that it doesn't feel significantly different to the more popular sister title. That said it's simplicity will appeal to players and there's plenty of fun to be had. Just don't expect too much duck action.
Double Up Ducks is available at many bingo and slot sites. These include Dragonfish sites such as Posh Bingo and City Bingo as well as Jumpman Slots and 15 Network Bingo brands.
