This paper presents comparison of existing deterministic approaches to solving Kakuro puzzles and provides a novel deterministic approach to obtaining an optimal solution for such puzzles, i.e. the Reducing Domain Values algorithm. This algorithm has been compared to other published deterministic approaches and proved to obtain better results in terms of time execution for obtaining an optimal solution. This provides a great foundation for development of effectual deterministic algorithms which would have great impact on solving coding theory problems.
