There be tales told, in hushed whispers, of a sea monster so ferocious, he holds the treasure of the ocean in his grasp. Will you come eye to eye with the creature and come back richer or poorer in the Eye of the Kraken slot?
The Eye of the Kraken mobile slot is not a classic 3 reeler by any means. This is a video slot, with bonus features aplenty, that happens to have a 3×3 set-up and 8 paylines.
Not because the Eye of the Kraken slot is particularly money hungry – quite the contrary. This is a fairly low variance game, far away from the dangerous spins of the Royal Masquerade slot.
But the thing about diving into the deep, dark abyss of the cold northern seas is that your journey will be fraught with action.
You’ll get plenty of little wins to see you through the periods when you’re waiting for the bonus features; meanwhile, just start collecting those torpedoes.
What? You didn’t think you’d be tickling the Kraken to death, did you?
Even if you don’t get a win, chances are you’ll get a torpedo symbol or two. You need to collect 50 of them, a little like in the Tower Quest slot, and why you need to budget for at least 100 spins.
Usually, it takes less time, sometimes more, but that’s a good average for this Eye of the Kraken game. And you’ll want to get to the bottom of the ocean to defeat this monster. It’s a click-me-bonus, but one where you can win up to 500 times your bet!
That said, facing the beast is no guarantee. Many times we’ve walked away, defeated, with nothing more than 5 or 10 times our bet.
If you think that collecting 50 torpedoes and getting nowhere sounds frustrating, that’s because… it is.
But it’s only a small part of the package. Sure, it’s where you get the biggest potential wins of the game, but meanwhile, you have free spins that come often, and if they don’t, then the Kraken wilds certainly liven things up.
Because on your journey to attack the beast, sometimes the beast bites back. Its shadow will loom, and its tentacles will spread across any of the reels to turn any or all symbols wild.
And suddenly, you’re not just passing the time until you get to the depths. Instead, you’re suddenly awoken from your spin as you realise you’ve collected all the Torpedoes and get a second chance at the bigger wins.
An unusual but fun, easy-playing, entertaining game from software provider Play’n GO.

Base Game Wilds: The game doesn't have traditional wild symbols. Instead, the screen will shake, and the Kraken will wrap its tentacles around any of the symbols.
If you're wondering how often you get all the symbols wild on screen... not often. But we've hit it to get 160 times our bet, to know it happens.
Scatters and Free Spins: You need to find 5 scattered diving helmets anywhere on the screen to trigger 9 free spins.
Here, you get two extra symbols. The actual Eye of the Kraken, which is wild, and the treasure chest scatter, which gives you random extra instant cash wins.
Not the most profitable, at best maybe 20 to 30 times your bet, but a fun interlude and a great way to keep you playing till the Kraken bonus.
Torpedoes and Kraken Bonus: As you play, you'll see there are torpedo symbols on the screen. They pay out on normal bet lines, but you also collect them.
When you've got 50 of them, you'll be taken to the creature who holds, in its tentacles 6 boxes of treasure. 3 will be empty 3 will have cash.
That cash can vary from as little as 2x your bet to 500 times your bet.
Pattern Wins: You can also get bonus wins if you get the same symbols on each of the 4 corners (10 times your bet) or the four inner edge central symbols (5x your bet).
The Eye of the Kraken slot on mobile is a beautifully rendered, easy playing game from Play'n GO.
You won't win a huge amount, but then you'll find yourself lost in the depths of the ocean for hours, realising that you've managed to get a few Hail-Mary wins of 100x your bet or more, saving you for one more round with the monster.
And then, if you manage to get a nice top-up to your starting budget, about 25% on top or so, try out something with a little more fizz, like the Spin Party slot.
