What is this mobile slot about?

Is it time to Release the Kraken slot and see what treasures lie in these sunken ships? There’s certainly lots to explore, just make sure you bring enough air down with you.

We love the look of this machine. Pragmatic Play has clearly thought out this machine, from the high paying shark, turtle and two fish symbols, to the low paying Ace to J symbols. The highest paying symbols of the lot it the Release the Kraken mobile slot logo and the Wild.

You down in the depth of the ocean, but not so deep that coral gives you a little hopefulness of the fact that you might not encounter any monsters.

Which is a shame, as with a name like ‘Release the Kraken’ you want to have a slight feeling of dread when meeting the creature from myths and legends.

That’s not to say that we didn’t like the theme – it’s cute and fun, much like the game itself. But it’s no Eye of the Kraken slot.

3 random features and 20 paylines of fun

The base game can be a little slow at times if we are honest, but it’s livened up by the fact that you may get any one of 3 random features.

Mostly, you get ‘infectious wilds’ which is one re-spin where at least one wild will land and spread across the reels. You may get more, as much as 5 or 10 wilds at once. Another random feature includes landing a mega wild that is 3×4 in space, or locking wild that gives you more re-spins, and possibly even 2x multiplier.

Those last two you get a lot less. But that’s what happens with mid to high variance slot machines that is trying to do everything at once: make you feel like there’s a lot of features, but not show you half of the ones that pay big.

Should you Release the Kraken slot game?

If you don’t look at the paytable, you might end up having a whole load of fun in this game thanks to frequent random features and fun click me game.

If you go in having looked at the paytable and got so excited for the mega wilds and the free spins bonus – you might get frustrated. You may or may not catch these in any one play session, so as long as you are happy with that, then take a spin.

Because you might just catch the free spins, and you might end up playing on a 40 payline slot rather than a 20 payline one. And you might find that every wild stays sticky on-screen and roams around the reel on every spin, giving you different winning positions each time. You may find yourself with 5 roaming wilds and a 5x multiplier, making the paytable your best friend.

It’s there, it’s possible, and it’s amazing when it does happen. And when it doesn’t, there’s alway’s the Nemos Voyage slot for something a little less dangerous.

In-game bonus features

Wilds: The bubbles are the wild symbols and substitute for all other symbols in order to create a win. It does not substitute for the Ship bonus, the free spins or the chest bonus symbols.

Random Spin Features: In the base game, on any spin, 3 tentacles may randomly appear for you to pick from. This may trigger any one of the following symbols:

  • Kraken Locking Wilds: The reels keep spinning and one of 3 chests will appear to randomly drop: more wilds, continue spinning, a 2x multiplier (collect), more wilds (with collect), or just collect.
  • Colossal Kraken Wilds: One spin where a randomly places 3x4 wild symbol is guaranteed to land on the reels.
  • Infectious Kraken Wilds: One spin where one random wild will drop on the reel and 'infect' adjacent symbols, also turning them into wilds. You may get more than one wild.

Sunken Treasure Bonus: When two ship bonus symbols land on reels 1 and 3, alongside a chest bonus on reel 5, you trigger this bonus. You then get to pick from 3 chests where you'll get random money prizes. You keep doing this until you hit collect.

Roaming Kraken Free Spins: When you get two ship bonus symbols on reels 1 and 3, and then the free spins symbol on reel 5, you trigger this bonus. First, you pick from treasure chests to see how many free spins you've won, from +1 to +2, or +3  and any combination of these numbers added together.

You play the free spins with 40 paylines and a 1x multiplier. Any wild symbol will increase the multiplier by 1, they also stay sticky on screen and move around on each spin.


Closing thoughts

There's a lot of features at play in this Release the Kraken slot on mobile, some harder to get than others. You can play for an hour and never see a free spin or a mega wild.

But that's ok as there are enough random features and click me games to give the momentum that we all love when playing slot games.

It's a little odd, having that empty space on the left of the reel, but overall this is a well designed and well thought one of the Pragmatic Play games with lots of features and some top wins.

Release the Kraken is a 5 reel by 4 rows slot machine with 20 paylines, 3 random features with different types of wilds, a free spin bonus with 40 paylines, and a click me bonus. A fun Underwater slot game.
