Release the Kraken 2 – Pragmatic Play
Läs denna artikel på svenska här
Release the Kraken 2 is a brand new slot from Pragmatic Play and as the name suggests, its a direct follow-up for the Release the Kraken which was published nearly three years ago in January 2020. The basic layout of the game is still the same as in the original, built on five reels with four rows on each of them. But there has been lot of other changes and plenty of cool new features included in this new version, so lets dive straight into it!
The star of the show here is of course the legendary sea-monster itself as its pictured in two of the most important symbols of the game, as the Kraken Scatter and Kraken Wild. The Kraken Wild works as a normal wild symbol, replacing any normal symbols on a winline in order to create a win for you. But that is not all it does, as when you land minimum of four Kraken Wild symbols on a same spin you will activate the Respin Mode. During the Respin Mode those wilds will become roaming wilds, meaning that on each spin they randomly change their place and move to a new position. You need to constantly land more Kraken Wild symbols in order to keep the respins going, as the mode ends immediately after the first respin where there is no new wilds landing on your reels.
The game also has couple of different randomly activating special features. The first one of these is called Stacked Wilds and when it is triggered there will be a big notification about it on your screen while the reels are spinning. This feature adds a Stacked Wild symbol which can land only on the three middle reels (reels #2, #3 and #4). If it lands only partially visible, for example only covering the very last row on that reel, it will move upwards from there until the whole reel is covered – and each time it moves a spot upwards, it also adds a 1x win multiplier. Possible win for that spin is then paid out with the multiplier after the Stacked Wild has moved to its final place covering the whole reel.
The second randomly activating special feature can only trigger after a spin that had no win in it. When this happens you will see a huge Kraken sweeping across all your reels completely rearranging all the symbols for a guaranteed win of 20-50x your stake.
Finally there is the Free Spin feature and this is activated traditionally by landing minimum of three Kraken Scatter symbols on your reels. When the feature starts you are first presented with a minigame where the amount of free spins will be determined along with the win multiplier. There is 16 different options ranging from 4-20 spins and 1-10x multiplier. These different options are hidden inside chests and you get to choose if you want to accept and open the very first lucky chest directly or if you want to reject it instead. If you choose to reject you then get to pick and eliminate four chests, narrowing down the different outcomes you can get. This is bit risky as you can accidentally eliminate the chest that has the highest amount of spins or the biggest win multiplier, so choose wisely!
We think that this is a great successor for the original game and exactly what you want to see in a follow-up title. This is not one of those sequels that is just quickly put together changing hardly anything from the original, but instead there is plenty of awesome new features that truly bring something fresh to the table. Easily recommended, especially if you enjoyed the first one! Head to Chanz.com to try it out yourself!
