A classic fairground is the setting for Double Up Ducks, a 5 reel, 25 payline slot from Eyecon. It comes with wilds that double payouts whenever they appear as well as a free spins round where all payouts are trebled. Take aim from between 25p and £12.50 per spin.

We’ve sometimes been a bit sniffy about the design of Eyecon slots but Double Up Ducks works very well. The setting is a classic fairground duck shoot stall – the reels are made up of items you’d typically found at the fair including a selection of cuddly toys.

You’ll see balloons, goldfish, pandas and bears which award up to 100 coins. Next come the lollipop and tortoise which pay up to 125 coins. The lion and hippo follow, offering up to 250 coins per payline. The ducks award up to 450 coins with the giraffe and the prize tickets paying up to 950 coins.

The pink elephant is the game’s wild – it replaces all other symbols bar the scatter and awards 10, 200, 2,000 or 9,500 coins (380 times your stake) if you land 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a payline. Any winning combination that includes an elephant sees the payout doubled. The only exception are winning lines made up entirely of wilds.

Double Up Ducks comes with a single Free Games feature – to trigger it, you’ll need to land 3, 4 or 5 of the duck target scatter. As well as receiving a prize equal to 5, 20 or 450 coins, you’ll also receive 15 free spins. All prizes won during the feature round are trebled. You can re-trigger more free spins here too with a possible 240 on offer.

This trip to the fair doesn’t have quite the variety of extras that some other slots in the Eyecon catalogue offer. You can still expect plenty of action thanks to the double wild wins and the 3x multiplier in the free spins round. The design is certainly a step up though. The procession of ducks under the reels is a nice touch and the barrel organ style soundtrack during the feature certainly adds to the day at the fair atmosphere.

Double Up Ducks is another impressive effort from Eyecon. They may not deliver the most beautifully designed slots but for action-packed gameplay you won’t go far wrong. It’s a low variance affair though with maximum wins of 380 times your bet on each spin. If you like fairground inspired slots, NetEnt’s Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune is a must.
