Design and Stats
Ancient Asia is the theme of the slot machine with the same symbols being used as the Duck of Luck Returns slot machine. Geisha girl, golden coins, golden duck, golden egg, vase, golden hat and card values 10, J, Q, K and A add splashes of colour to the reels.
Your screen is a bold shade of black with vibrant colours coming from the paylines to the left and right of the reels. Bamboo caresses the reels and keeps them in place on the screen. The control panel beneath the reels allows you to select your bet in this 5 reel slot with 25 fixed paylines.
When it comes to deciding on the amount you wish to stake, you have two options – 25 coins or 500 coins. The minimum stake will return a non-progressive jackpot of 10,000, while the max stakes will return a 200,000 jackpot. Geisha girl awards the jackpot, but you’ll need five symbols on your payline to trigger it.
The second highest payout comes from the golden duck, max stakes returns a payout of 50,000 coins.
It’s no surprised to see the biggest feature being based around the golden duck, but she has two abilities; a wild that will substitute for other symbols and she triggers free spins. Three or more ducks on your reels and you’ll be awarded with 12 free spins initially. Whilst playing your free spins, you’ll have to try and trigger as many golden eggs on your reels as you possibly can, because it’s these golden eggs that can boost your bankroll:
- Collect between 13 and 20 golden eggs and you will receive a 3x multiplier on all winnings
- Gather between 21 and 25 golden eggs and your free spins will be boosted by an additional 12 free spins
- Accumulate 26 or more golden eggs and you will receive a whopping 600x multiplier to your winnings.
Double up feature is just another name for the gamble feature. This is a game of chance – no skill involved, so whether you win or lose is down to a turn of a card. Base game wins of less than 10x your stake will allow you to enter the bonus round. Use the buttons on your screen to either bet red or black for a 2x multiplier, or spades, clubs, hearts and diamonds for a 4x multiplier.
The most money will come from guessing the suit of the next card correct, but it’s vital to remember that one wrong guess will kick you back to the reels with nothing.
Duck of Luck was the first slot release from Casino Technology, with Duck of Luck Returns coming sometime after. We imagined that with the Duck of Luck being the very first release, it would have a lower non-progressive jackpot and smaller features – but how wrong could we be. Duck of Luck slot game offers a jackpot double that of Duck of Luck Returns and also offers huge multipliers during free spins – you can get your hands on 600x your total bet with Duck of Luck compared to 200x with Duck of Luck Returns.
This medium to high variance slot machine takes a good deal of playing before you can trigger the free spins, but when they come in you can accumulate massive amounts of cash. If you are a fast and furious slot player, you can use the space bar on your keyboard to spin the reels faster than clicking the pin button.
