Release the Kraken 2 Slots

Release the Kraken 2 is a 5-reel slot machine with 20 paylines.

During any random spin in the base game, there is a chance to trigger 1 of 3 random features.

Theme And Design

A pirate ship plies the stormy seas behind the reels of Release the Kraken 2. Check out the 5x4 grid of symbols inhabited by cartoon creatures such as eels, sharks, stingrays, and bubble-filled or tentacle-encrusted playing card emblems. A giant octopus in red and golden versions can land on the reels of this tabletop and mobile game developed by Pragmatic Play.

Betting Options

The minimum bet is $0.20 a spin, and the maximum is $100 per spin, with several other bet options in between. Release the Kraken 2 has a theoretical RTP payout rate of 97% and a maximum winning capacity of 5,000x.

Symbols And Paytable

Regarding symbols, the highest-paying regular character in Release the Kraken 2 is the fierce shark, followed by the hairy fish, the piranha, and the eel. The standard Ace, King, Queen, Jack, and Ten are low-paying symbols. There is also a Wild symbol on all your reels, which substitutes the other symbols except Scatters.

Wild ReSpins And Scatter Spins

The red Kraken is a wild symbol that can act like the others when needed. It's also the star of some other features during the core games. The Wild Respin feature is triggered if at least four wilds land at once, with the Krakens locked in place while the other symbols repeat. If more wilds appear, you get additional respins. There is also a Shifting Stacked Wilds wheel where the Kraken symbols on the central reels expand to fill all three rows. The multiplier increases by 1x for each additional symbol position it takes over. Finally, the Kraken 2 slot's Guaranteed Win feature, the release, sees creatures rearrange symbols for a winning combination worth 20x to 50x the stake.

Ante Bet Feature

Before you can start spinning, you'll have the option of the Ante Bet bonus feature. Activating the Ante Bet feature increases by 25% but has a few benefits. Once the Ante bet starts, you'll have an excellent chance of triggering the Free Spins. In addition, the RTP drops slightly when Ante Bet is activated.

Free Spins Bonus

Landing 3 to 5 Scatters in any position across the reels will automatically trigger the Free Spins round. However, before the free spins round begins, you can participate in a mini-bonus game to win a series of free spins and win multipliers for the following competition. Several possible combinations are available depending on the number of Scatters awarded per initial run.

Wild Respins Feature

If four Wild symbols appear, the Wild Respin feature is automatically triggered. Once that occurs, all wilds present will move around the set of reels and fix in a new position, potentially forming winning combinations. If a new Wild symbol lands during a Wild Respin, another Respin will be awarded. This feature ends when no more wilds land on the reel grid.

Shifting Stacked Wild Symbols

Landing Shifting Stacked Wilds on reels 2 to 4 will automatically trigger the Shifting Stacked Wilds feature. When the spin stops, the stacked wilds will fully appear to fill all positions on the reel it is currently on. A multiplier will occur whenever a Shifting Stacked Wild moves to another revolution, increasing by one for each Shifting Stacked present Wild. After the wilds have moved, all wins are paid out and multiplied by the total sum of all multipliers.

Guaranteed Win Feature

During any random non-winning spin, the Kraken may appear on the screen and rearrange symbols to award a win between 20x and 50x your current bet. In addition, after a spin, 3 Scatter symbols can randomly appear on the screen through the Explosion animation, triggering the Free Spins round.
