According to Scandinavian mythology, the Kraken is a horrifying giant sea creature. But, Release the Kraken by Pragmatic Play is cute. Release The Kraken is capable of big rewards, but equally proficient in haunting dreams after a particularly savage session.
Release the Kraken slot game comes with 5-reels, 3 rows in a semi-transparent sea background. The wager can be set up manually, 1-10 coins per line and 0.10-0.50 coin value. This means total bets from 10 p/c per spin up to £/€100. 20 pay lines during the base game by matching up three or more symbols for payout. Split the paytable is between low and high pay symbols. Low pays are the royal card J – A. High pays are more imaginative with four creatures of the sea – a green fish, bluefish, a turtle, and a shark, all of them look smiling and so cute.
Release the Kraken is the most valuable symbol with 25 times the stake. The standard wild is worth the same amount and can substitute for any symbol except the Bonus, Free Spins, or Chest Bonus symbols.
There are special features in Release The Kraken. Let’s start with the Random Spin features. Sometimes during the base game, three tentacles appear over the reels waving a ‘Pick Me’ sign. You can choose one to unlock one of these spin modifiers:
- Kraken Lockin Wilds: This feature introduces a new wild into the game. Three chests appear on the reels and players open them one by one. Get ‘More Wilds’ and the game adds more Kraken Wilds to the reels. ‘Continue Spinning’ does nothing, ‘All Wins x2 and Collect’ applies a multiplier to any win value and ends the feature. ‘Collect’ ends the feature and wins are paid out.
- Colossal Kraken Wilds: this adds a giant 3×4 wild which is guaranteed to land on the reels. It might not cover a full 12 positions though. It can, but it could cover just the top or bottom 3 positions. Or anything in between.
- Infectious Kraken Wilds: this feature adds at least one Infectious Kraken Wild to the reels. These wilds turn adjacent symbols into wilds as well.
Special wilds during the Random Spin feature substitute for any symbol except the Bonus, Free Spins, or Chest Bonus symbols.
When you land bonus symbols on reels 1 and 3, following with Chest Bonus on reel 5, they trigger the Sunken Treasure Bonus – 3 chests appear on the screen which you can open one at a time to reveal cash prizes. There is no set limit to the number of picks. You keep on opening chests until one of them reveals ‘Collect’ and the feature is over.
The last feature is Roaming Kraken Free Spins. When you land bonus symbols on reels 1 and 3, following with free spins symbol on reel 5 then this feature is triggered. Before the round start, you should pick the chest to reveal the prizes. The chest contains +1, +2, or +3 free spins. There is no limit to pick the chest, but when you reveal COLLECT, the free spin round starts. Roaming Kraken Free Spins benefits from 40 pay lines instead of the 20 you get in the base game as well as a win multiplier that starts at x1. Every time a wild symbol land, it remains on the reels and roams, and increases the multiplier by +1.
There is a good potential of up to 10,000 times the stake, but games can easily go either way. That means winning big, or constantly paddling against a powerful current sweeping you in the wrong direction.
