About Release the Kraken
Release the Kraken Slot offers some mighty monster fun. In this ocean-themed slot from Pragmatic Play, will you be able to get the treasure from the Kraken? The legendary marine monster pops up in the form of Wild symbols, but you’ll see its tentacles wrapping around Bonus symbols too - there are other sea creatures here, at least, and they all appear in a friendly cartoon style. The background’s pretty colourful with lots of deep blues and bright coral and seaweed too. Sit back, enjoy the relaxing classical music, get your scuba gear on, and dive in to Release the Kraken! The treasure could be yours...
How to play Release the Kraken
In the base game, there are 20 paylines, though you’ll get more if you’re lucky enough to enter the Bonus Game! You’ve got 5 reels, each with 4 symbols, so there are 20 symbols in total. They range from the J and Q symbols, which from a £1 spin will get you £2 at most, to the Release the Kraken Logo - match 5 of these for 25x your bet! The Wild symbol pays out at the same rate, and substitutes for all symbols.
That is, apart from the Bonus symbol, Free Spins symbol and Chest Bonus symbol. However, during the base game you can get the chance to randomly choose between 3 tentacles - each one will trigger a different feature. There are Kraken Locking Wilds, where the reels keep spinning and chests appear to give out various prizes, Colossal Kraken Wilds, where a 3x4 Colossal Wild symbol arrives on the reels, and Infectious Kraken Wilds, in which a Wild lands on the board and ‘infects’ all adjacent symbols, making them Wild too!

Wild symbol- this symbol substitutes any other symbols apart from Bonus symbols
Bonus symbol - triggers a feature when landing on reels 1 and 3 and a Free Spins or Chest Bonus symbol lands on reel 5
Free Spins/Chest Bonus symbol - trigger Free Spins and Chest Bonus respectively when landing on reel 5 as Bonus symbols land on reels 1 and 3.
Release the Kraken doesn’t have just one Bonus symbol - here, there are 3! To trigger a Bonus round, you just need to land the regular Bonus symbol on reels 1 and 3 respectively, and then land either a Free Spins or Chest Bonus symbol on reel 5! The Chest Bonus symbol will trigger the Sunken Treasure Bonus - you’ll get 3 chests, and choosing one will reveal a cash prize. Alternatively, you can enter Roaming Free Spins - this feature begins with you picking chests to reveal prizes until you find a ‘Collect’ item.
Prizes can be up to 12 Free Spins - 40 paylines will be in play now instead of 20, and the round begins with a Multiplier of x1. However, with each Wild symbol it’ll increase by x1 up to a maximum of x10. All Wilds will remain on the board for the rest of the Free Spins, but change position at random each time...
