Release The Kraken 2 Slot Review – Pragmatic Play
Today we have another Pragmatic Play slot announcement, with this new game ready for release in November. I recently reviewed the game titled ‘Sword Of Ares’, which has a max win capped at 10,000x and a Locked Multiplier mechanic. Today we are learning all about ‘Release The Kraken 2’, which is set to release November 3rd across all sites.
The original game is titled ‘Release The Kraken‘, which was released in the year 2020. Both games use the popular underwater theme, but with the focus around a Kraken. The game background shows the beauty of under the sea, with different coloured plants and rocks. Visuals are well detailed with vibrant colours and simplistic details.
Release The Kraken 2 has a setup of 5 reels by 4 rows; this includes 20 to 40 set pay lines. This slot is high variance with a set RTP of 96.5% and a max win capped at 5,000x. You can bet from £0.20 to £100.
Release The Kraken 2 Pay Table & Symbols
There are 11 symbols in total; this includes 5 low-paying symbols. These are represented by 10, J, Q, K and A. There are also 4 premium symbols; these are represented by Eels, Lanternfish, Pufferfish and Sharks. In addition to these regular symbols is a golden Octopus Scatter and Octopus Wild symbol. The highest paying symbol is the Shark Premium, which pays 10x for 5 across a pay line. Wilds substitute for all symbols except the scatter and appears on all reels.
Release The Kraken 2 Features
During base game spins, there is a chance that one of the following features will trigger;
If 4 or more Wild Symbols land, the Free Respin Mode will be triggered. The Wilds remain on the screen and move to a random grid position; other symbols will respin. If more Wilds land, another respin is awarded, and this continues until no new Wilds land after a respin.
Shifting Stacked Wilds
A special Shifting Stacked Wild can appear on reels 2, 3 and 4. When this special wild stops, the Shifting Stacked Wilds are moved fully onto the reel. For each position moved, a multiplier is increased by 1x for each Shifting Stacked Wild.
On any spin that results in no win, the Kraken can come onto the screen and change the symbols to an outcome of 20x to 50x. Randomly after a spin, 3 Bonus Symbols can appear on the screen, which will award the Free Spins Feature.
Landing 3 or more scatters during a base game spin will trigger the Free Spins feature. Before the feature starts, you have the option to play a Mini Bonus Game to win a combination of Free Spins and a Multiplier. The number of Scatters from the initial trigger will determine the possible number of Free Spins and Multiplier. 3 Scatters can award 4 Free Spins to 15 Free Spins and a Multiplier up to 6x. 4 Scatters can award 5 Free Spins to 20 Free Spins and a Multiplier up to 10x, and 5 Scatters can award 6 Free Spins to 20 Free Spins and a Multiplier up to 10x.
16 Boxes are shown on the screen, with each containing a randomised combination. You can open this box to reveal the result and play with the number of spins and multiplier. Or you can reject this offer and instead remove chests and combinations from the pool manually in groups of 4, 4, 3 and 3 picks. A new offer is based on the average in the remaining chests. This process will continue until an offer is accepted or only one chest remains.
During Free Spins, any wins are multiplied by the multiplier awarded in the Mini Bonus Game. Spins are played with 40 Pay lines instead of 20 Pay lines. Any Wilds that land will also remain on the reel set until the end of this feature. These Wilds will move to a new random reel position on every Free Spin. If a Golden Wild hits, it will increase the multiplier by 1x. This bonus feature can be purchased for 100x for 3 to 5 Scatters on the trigger. Or 250x for 5 Scatters on the trigger.
You also have the option to activate ‘Ante Bet‘. Activating this bet will increase your bet, which will also increase the chance to trigger the Free Spins naturally.
Overall, I think this slot is a fantastic game sequel and includes new exciting mechanics. With a max win capped at 5,000x and a Free Spins feature with multipliers & Moving Wilds. Be sure to try out the game for yourself on release and check out our exclusive casino offers.
