Our Opinion:

Release The Kraken slot is an entertaining title with a big reward. I was impressed by the high-quality graphics and animations, and the theme played well into the features. The Random Spin bonus was my favourite part of the game because of the powerful wild modifiers, but the bulk of the winning power is in free spins. For more underwater adventures, play Ocean Magic and Gold Fish today.

RTP and Variance

The RTP is just above the industry average, and the high volatility will give you bigger wins, but less often.

How to Play Release the Kraken Slot

Bonus Features

Random Spin

You can randomly trigger this feature on any spin during the base game. Three tentacles will appear, waving 'Pick Me' signs. When you choose, you will trigger one of three modifiers.

Pick a sign-waving tentacle to get a wild modifier.

Three chests will appear on the reels if you get Kraken Lockin' Wilds. Clicking on the chests reveals “More Wilds,” which adds more wild symbols to the reels, 'Continue Spinning' which adds nothing but lets the reels keep spinning, 'All Wins x2 Collect, which doubles your prize and ends the feature, or ‘Collect' that ends the feature pays out your prize.

If Colossal Kraken Wilds activates, a giant 3x4 wild will land somewhere on the reels. The Infectious Kraken Wilds modifier adds at least 1 Infectious Kraken Wild to the reels, turning adjacent symbols into wilds.

Sunken Treasure

You trigger a rewarding pick-me game if you land two ship bonus symbols on reels 1 and 3 and a chest bonus symbol on reel 5.

RTK bonus chest

A Kraken holding three chests will appear on the screen. You must open them one at a time to reveal cash prizes. There is no limit to how many times you can open the chests, but when a chest reveals 'Collect,' the feature will end.

My Release of the Kraken 25 Free Spins Experience

You get three random bonuses that give you Wilds to increase your winnings!

For those who don’t know, The Kraken is a legendary sea monster often depicted in Norse and Scandinavian folklore. Described as a colossal octopus or squid-like creature, it is said to dwell in the ocean's depths, capable of dragging entire ships and crews to their watery demise with its immense tentacles. This all sets up a promising slot theme. I started setting my bet amount to $3 per spin. More than a few spins went by, and I got a decent win of $15. I knew I needed to bet a bit more to get a substantial profit, so I increased my bet size to $4.20, and things were not going my way. As devastating as the urban Legend, my bankroll was decreasing, and all I had in return was $2.10 with only a few spins left; I got lucky by hitting a combination on the green fish symbols, awarding me $25. But unfortunately, this wasn’t enough to get me into profits.

  • Didn’t end in a profit.

This slot game has a lot to offer. Besides being visually stunning,  You can get three random bonuses that give you Wilds, increase your winnings, and more. There's also the Sunken Treasure Chest feature, where you can win cash prizes until you decide to stop. And remember the Free Spins round that not only gives you Free Spins but also multipliers.

Objective: 25 spins to maximize my game time and entertainment value. To do this, I adjust my bet sizes/paylines to maximize my playing experience. If I hit any bonus features and walk away with more than I started, that’s a success.

Note: Because the results are always completely random, we use the demo simulation of the game, which mimics the real money experience. We always recommend you start in demo mode to learn and understand the game before you play for real money.
