Graphics and Theme
The game is based around an eery fairground ride stall—the stall where you have to shoot at targets to win tickets and cuddly toy prizes. Only the prizes are not so cuddly at this stall. The reels are set inside a miniature stage with cobwebs covering the wooden floor and wooden pillars that stand either side of the reels. You can just about see some other stalls at the fairground, but there’s not enough on show to see what they are. So, your attention will be focused on the game that you can see and the creepy character symbols that fill the reels.
The soundtrack uses an array of scary synth noises to produce a song that builds frightening suspense. It sounds a little bit like the dramatic soundtrack played on shows like Hawaii 5-0 or CSI as they are about to enter a murder scene. As you hit spin, the music intensifies, and you’ll hear the reels spin with a flickering noise. They will come to a stop one by one, and special arcade-type noises will sound as you land bonus symbols and winning combinations.
Ducks Till Dawn symbols
The low paying symbols are made up of the playing card symbols nine, 10, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace. Six of a kind aces are worth 2x your stake or £120 when you’re betting the maximum. The high paying symbols are made up of a balloon dog, a balloon snake, a monkey teddy, a teddy bear and a scary-looking doll. The doll is worth 5x your stake for six of a kind or £300 when betting the maximum. There is also a mystic wild symbol that can substitute for any of the symbols except for the bonus, duck and crosshair symbols.
Cash ducks feature
As well as the regular symbols, ducks and crosshair symbols can appear on any spin. Whenever a crosshair symbol lands on the same reel position as a duck symbol, the duck is shot, and an instant cash prize is awarded. If multiple ducks are shot on a single spin, the wins are multiplied up to a maximum of 200x.
Ducks Till Dawn free spins
There is a spin boost feature active throughout the base game. Free spins are accumulated throughout the game, and the total is shown at the top of your screen. Level one free spins are indicated in blue, and level two free spins are shown in red. The corresponding free spins round is triggered when three or more red or blue bonus symbols land anywhere on your screen. Level one free spins will multiply wins by up to 5x whereas level two free spins will multiply your winnings by up to 10x. The bonus symbols can also payout up to £3000 if you’re betting the maximum or 50x your stake for six of a kind. Finally, you can retrigger up to 15 extra free spins by landing more bonus symbols during the free spins round.
You can choose to bet between £0.60 per spin and £60 per spin. Both options cover all of the 4096 ways to win so you will have plenty of opportunities to create winning combinations. The game pays out when you land at least three symbols on a winning pay line on the 6×4 grid of reels. The maximum payout in the game is 15595x your stake which is achieved by maxing out the cash duck multiplier in the level two free spins round. You can hit spin manually or take advantage of the autoplay feature which can play 100 spins for you. There is also an option to speed up the gameplay to get more rapid results. The level two free spins bonus round is where big money can be made so keep an eye out for the red bonus symbols.
