Release the Kraken 2 Slots

The kraken is supposedly a sea monster, and a huge one at that. It's thought to be a giant octopus or squid if anything like it does exist. But the kraken is something else… and we guess Release the Kraken 2 is something else too. We checked out this slot game sequel to see whether it was worth the wait for its release.

Do we have the same developer in charge here?

Yes, we do of course, and the name is Pragmatic Play.

Try their demo version to get a better idea of what is to come

This is always a great piece of advice to stick with, and we think you should load the practice game to find out more about it.

A monster of a theme

Based on the legendary sea monster, this slot game makes the most of that theme just as the first game did. We can see this turning into a bigger series too if they want to go deeper into the dark waters…

Does the design work swimmingly?

It does, yes, if you'll forgive us another watery pun. There are sharks, puffer fish, and all manner of other creatures of the deep, but since they're all drawn in a cartoon style, they look awesome.

How to play Release the Kraken 2 slots

If you thought this would be a 5 x 3 slot, go one bigger - it measures 5 x 4, so there's plenty happening on each spin. Don't expect any progressive jackpots to show up in sunken treasure chests though.

The wild is the kraken, of course, looking pretty serious and holding the wild logo in its tentacles. This can show up across all the reels, pays out for two or more on its own, and replaces everything apart from the bonus symbol. You can't miss the bonus - it appears in gold and also shows the kraken, this time with the word bonus underneath it.

How many lines are there in this slot sequel?

The controls for betting on this game reveal there are 20 lines, which are fixed, so you'll cover them all whenever you play.

Is this a costly game to play?

It depends on how you approach the coin quantity and value. This game follows the pattern set in plenty of others from this developer, in that it provides up to 10 coins to play on each payline. It also has several values to sort through, from one cent each to 50 cents at the uppermost level.

Make sure you explore the paytable before you explore the depths

The game involves a lot of features, so by reading the paytable you'll have a better idea of what to look for during the game.

Bonus features that may appear in the base game

This Pragmatic Play slot includes a chance of a random bonus feature turning up at any moment. Finding four or more wilds can trigger a free respin to trigger a wild prize. Find one or more wilds in that respin and it happens again.

You might also hit one or more shifting stacked wilds on any of the middle three reels. This random feature can involve multipliers too.

We like the sound of the next one as well - a guaranteed win. If you get a losing spin, the kraken may turn up to switch some symbols around. This will trigger a prize of 20x your bet to 60x your bet. You may also randomly trigger the free spin feature.

Let's find out what you need to do to get some free spins

You must find at least three bonus icons to get some free spins. The more you find, the better, as there are multiple possibilities for three, four, or five bonus icons. Three would bring between four and 15 spins, while four would trigger between five and 20 spins. Finally, five bonus icons will bring between six and 20 spins. In each case, the selected spin quantity comes with a multiplier. You can play a bonus element first to see whether you can improve on the contents of the chest that appears when you unlock the round.

Release the Kraken 2: What's the RTP like?

The paytable makes this clear - the return to player is theorized to be 96.03%. This changes slightly - but only by a tiny amount - if you're on the standard or VIP free spins round.

Our rating for Release the Kraken 2

This is an excellent game with plenty of potential. We do suggest taking the demo for a prolonged spin first, as there are lots of elements to be aware of as you play. This is surely at least a 9/10 game though.

What's the maximum winning amount?

The paytable confirms this to be 5,000x your bet, but this can occur over the course of a round. As for icon values, the shark pays out the most.

Demo action is the perfect way to check out the kraken

This colorful game offers a lot of entertainment, and it's cool to play even if you never stray from the demo version. Check it out and you'll see what we mean.
