Release the Kraken 2 Slots
Pragmatic Play's release of the Kraken 2 is a sequel to the successful Kraken slot. It features a variety of wilds, pick-me-treasure chests, and free spins. The original release also had plenty of underwater adventurers to keep the players entertained.
The new version of the game features a variety of new features and a revamped gameplay. Some of these include the Wild Respins, the Shifting Stack Wilds, and the Deal or No Deal feature. Although the gameplay has changed, the same spirit of fun still prevails.
The new version of the game is also more bubblier than the original. It features a variety of new features and a revamped gameplay. One of these is the addition of a few characters that perform an animation sequence when they land a winning line. Although this is a small thing, it adds to the game's overall enjoyment.
The vibe of the game is more positive than it was in the original release. The main characters from the original game had a menacing appearance. However, in the new version, the game's characters are more playful.
Setup & Gameplay
The game's layout has remained the same. It's played on a 5-reel, 3-row grid, and it features 20 pay lines, with 40 free spins possible. It's highly volatile, and the RTP value can vary depending on the model and how you play it.
The game's theoretical return on playing regularly is 96.03%, and it can provide you with a win of up to £/100 per spin. Increasing the ante bet's chances of triggering the feature by 25% can also boost the RTP.
The grid features nine regular pay symbols, with the low paying being 10-A cards, followed by the four habitants of the deep. When three or more of these symbols appear on the grid, a winning line can pay out around 1-2 times the bet. The Kraken is also featured on all five reels, and it substitutes for all other symbols except the bonus ones.
The game's respin feature is activated if four or more wilds appear on the grid after the payout has been made. The wilds then move to a random position and the rest of the symbols get respun. The game awards one more respin if more wilds land on the grid. If no more wilds appear on the grid after the feature ends, the game's feature ends.
Shifting Stack Wilds
The game's Shifting Stack Wild symbols appear on the base game's reels 2, 3, and 4 at random. When the spin stops, these wilds are moved to cover all of the positions on the screen. The multiplier for each of these symbols is increased by 1 to +1. After the nudge, wins are added to the resulting win.
If the base game doesn't produce a winning spin, the Kraken can appear on the screen and rearrange the symbols in order to create a win of up to 50x the bet. Also, on a spin, three scatter symbols can appear randomly and trigger the free spins feature.
The game's free spins feature is triggered when three or more scatter symbols appear on the screen. A mini game determines the number of free spins that can be awarded. Three scatter symbols can trigger the free spins feature, and up to 15 free spins can be won with a multiplier of up to 6. Five scatter symbols can trigger the feature, and up to 20 free spins can be won with an x10 multiplier.
The mini-game features 16 boxes, each with a different amount of free spins and a win multiplier.
