The ocean is full of miraculous things and mysteries, so it’s no wonder why many legends are told about the vicious sea monsters lurking in its dark depths. In the new slot Release The Kraken 2, Pragmatic Play introduces you once again to the most terrifying sea creature that scares sailors for centuries. 

However, in the provider’s interpretation, the mighty Kraken is not that scary, but the big wins it lays on are quite astonishing. As the name says it, this slot is a sequel to Release The Kraken and has very much in common with the original, starting with recognizable visuals.

Another thing that remained the same is the game layout, featuring a 5×4 grid with 20 paylines that expand to 40 paylines in free spins mode. The volatility is up a notch, from very to extremely high. 

However, the winning potential is cut in half, providing a maximum prize of up to 5,000x the bet. Be that as it may, Release the Kraken 2 has an Ante Bet option and Buy Bonus button, as well as amazing bonus features that can make wins more frequent. 

On any spin in the base game, random features can activate anytime, boosting wins and aiding in the creation of matching symbols. It is thrilling gameplay as Wild Respin with locked Wilds or Shifting Stack Wilds with progressive multiplier can pop up and trigger when you least expect it. 

To make things better, every non-winning spin is a chance for the Guaranteed Win feature to trigger completely randomly. If it does, the Kraken may appear and rearrange the symbols to create a guaranteed win worth from 20x to 50x the bet.

Three or more Scatters in view award the entry to the bonus round. A randomly chosen chest with an unknown number of free spins and win multiplier value is awarded.

It is up to a player to either accept the reward and start free spins immediately or to gamble it in a mini-picking game for a chance to win a more valuable prize. More triggering Scatters means a better prize combo, while the maximum you can get is 20 free spins with a 10x multiplier. 

As mentioned, there is also an option to purchase this round, but it defers from the usual Bonus Buy seen in most top Pragmatic slots. Besides the ability to get standard free spins with a random number of Scatters for 100x the bet, there is also an option to select a VIP Kraken Bonus at 250x the stake that guarantees 5 Scatters on reels.

With so much going on, Release The Kraken 2 is more than a worthy successor of the original. Like Irina Cornides, Chief Operating Officer at Pragmatic Play, said:

 “This sequel aims to take everything that made the original title so popular, increasing the entertainment value to provide new heights of engagement for players. The slot offers multiple features in the base game and the free spins round can be gambled, and upgraded and has increased chances of winning, which all work in harmony to create a stand-out title.

Following recent hits such as Sword of Ares, Big Bass – Keeping It Reel and Candy Stars, there’s no doubt that the new Release The Kraken 2 will reach the fame of the initial game in no time. It is another rising star in Pragmatic Play’s massive, diverse, award-winning portfolio.
