Reputed iGaming software developer Kalamba Games recently launched its latest video slot From Ducks till Dawn. And the title takes the fairground experience from fun to spooky with tons of rewards waiting to be earned. If you are looking for more video slots with cool bonus features, you can have a look at our slot reviews.
The developers ditched the bright lights, fun rides, and colourful games for a dark theme and the backdrop includes beat-up dolls, crystal ball gazing, and stuffed monkeys. The highlights of the title include stacked multipliers and a bonus duck shooting round.
From Ducks till Dawn flaunts quite a few quality mechanics and the two meters at the top of the screen offers a spin boost. The meter collects free spins, and once full, the players earn up to 15 extra spins.
The ducks in the game can be a little creepy as they move across the reels. If a couple of crosshairs successfully shoots the ducks, players earn the associated amount on the duck. If the players successfully shoot multiple ducks through the crosshair, the multiplier increases in value from x1, x2, x5, x20, x50, up to x200.
Finding the three bonus symbols earns extra spins. In this round, the crosshair multiplier is on the higher side while the RTP increases to 97.69% from 96.91%. From Ducks till Dawn can return up to 15,595x the betting amount.
From Ducks till Dawn closely follows in the footsteps of Goblins and Gemstones, the last major release from Kalamba Games, which launched back in December 2020. And the studio has a host of other interesting titles in the pipeline.
The 6-reel video slot comes with 4,096 winning combinations while the buy-in range is between £/€0.60 and £/€60 per spin. Although the title isn’t as highly-volatile as the previous release, From Ducks till Dawn flaunts a hit frequency of 35.69%. The standard symbols include card characters from 9-A while the premium icons are snake balloons, stuffed monkeys, dog balloons, dolls, and bears.
Landing six-of-a-kind combinations trigger between 3.33x and 5x the bet while the Cash Duck system is one of the highlights of the title. The Spin Boost meter is equally enticing, and as the base game progresses, free spins are added to the meter. However, players can only hoard up to 15 free spins.
There are two in-game bonus rounds – blue bonus level 1 and red bonus level 2. Landing three or more scatters of the respective colours trigger free spins on the Spin Boost meter. The additional multipliers attached to each bonus level are 5x and 10x, respectively. The Cash Ducks mechanism works in the base game too.
While Kalamba Games tend to overcomplicate things, From Ducks till Dawn is a simplistic title compared to most, and at the end of the day, shooting ducks can be a lot of fun after all.
