Beat The Beast Kraken’s Lair – Thunderkick

Thunderkick has been one of my personal favorite game creators for a while now. The studio always creates unique aspects in their games and always impress with volatility and detailed artwork. The provider had a fantastic 2019 thanks to successful games such as ‘Riders Of The Strom‘ and ‘Carnival Queen‘. Now we have been awaiting another 2020 release after the announcement of ‘Esqueleto Explosivo 2‘, there was excitement in the casino community. The provider has announced a new game to launch very soon. The game in question is titled ‘Beat The Beast Kraken’s Lair‘, set to launch across all sites.

This game is set deep beneath the sea, with the background showing ship wreckage and terrain on the ocean floor. The Kraken is the main aspect of the theme and is seen as premium symbols. The visuals seem basic compared to previous games but represent the theme well in the artwork.

Beat The Beast Kraken’s Lair has a classic setup of 5 reels by 3 rows, this includes 9 set pay lines. This game is medium-high variance due to the max win capped at 7,777x and set RTP of 96.12%.

Beat The Beast Kraken’s Lair Symbols & Paytable

This game has 11 symbols in total, this includes 5 low paying symbols. These are represented by 10, J, Q, K, and A. There are also 5 premium symbols, these are represented by tridents, pendants, chests, Kraken idols, and krakens. In addition to these paying symbols is a golden scatter/wild. This symbol substitutes for any other symbols and generates both scatter pay and pay line wins.

Beat The Beast Kraken’s Lair Features

There is one mini-feature you will benefit from during spins. This feature is ‘Expanding Win‘, which occurs when a pay line includes a golden scatter/wild symbol. The expanding symbols will expand individually. The golden scatter/wild does not expand. Expansion only occurs once per symbol.

Central to this game is the ‘Bonus Game‘. This is triggered when you land 3 or more Kraken emblems during one spin. This will award 10 free spins, during spins a Kraken emblem symbol is randomly placed on the reel set before each spin.


Overall, I think this game plays well thanks to the addition of a mini-feature. The bonus feature does remind me of old game releases but the mini-feature makes it more unique. Thunderkick always tries to use different features in games and it shows in this release. There is great volatility on offer and it is a fun game to play. Be sure to try the game for yourself on release and check out our exclusive casino offers.
