A couple of weeks ago we brought you the news that Pragmatic Play had launched a new game called Release the Kraken, which was based on the mythical sea creature that has terrified sailors for centuries. Today we can tell you that the Kraken has raised its ugly head once again, this time in the Thunderkick game Beat the Beast: Kraken’s Lair. Is this merely a coincidence or the beginning of some chilling Kraken uprising? We’re fairly confident that it’s the former, but don’t just take our word for that – check the title out for yourself and reach your own conclusion...
Explore the Salty Depths...
Beat the Beast: Kraken’s Lair is a five-reel slot with three reels and nine pay lines. The game can be played on desktop, tablet and mobile devices, allowing you to explore the salty depths – and hopefully win a decent prize or two - at any time of day or night, no matter where you might be.
As you would expect, the Kraken’s lair is situated at the bottom of the ocean, and if you look carefully at the background you will be able to make out wreckage from one or two sunken ships. No doubt these are just a couple of vessels that the Kraken has dragged down to the depths in its career, and we dare say that they won’t be the last.
This game has the visual style of a mature graphic novel, and the symbols on the reels include the playing card ranks of 10, J, Q, K and A, a trident, a pendant, a chest of treasure, a Kraken idol and the Kraken beast itself. A Kraken Emblem serves as both a scatter symbol and a wild. Animations are very well done, and a cinematic soundtrack evokes a rather noble sense of courage and adventure.
Kraken Emblem Expanding Wins
We have said that the Kraken Emblem acts as both a wild and as a scatter symbol. As a wild, it is more powerful than most, because when it helps you to complete a winning combination it will cause all of the regular symbols in that combination to fill each of their respective reels. This "expanding wins" feature can be very profitable, helping you to win considerably more than was warranted by the initial combination alone.
Kraken Emblem Free Spins
When you get three, four or five Kraken Emblems on the reels at the same time, they will act as scatters and trigger a Free Spins feature. An initial cash prize of 2, 20 or 200 times your bet will be awarded for getting 3, 4 or 5 scatters, respectively, and you will then be given 10 free spins.
During this part of the game, a Kraken Emblem symbol will be placed in a random position on one of the reels before each spin commences. This will improve your chances of benefitting from the expanding wins feature, as mentioned previously, and it could also help you to trigger more free spins, because an additional ten spins will be awarded if you get another three or more scatters on the reels.
Win Up to 7,777 Times Your Stake!
Beat the Beast: Kraken’s Lair is a good-looking slot that will satisfy anyone who would like to spend some time with the tentacled monster of the deep. It is also a game which has the potential to substantially increase your bank balance, with a top prize of up to 7,777 times your stake being up for grabs. Visit your favourite venue offering Thunderkick titles to enter the Kraken’s lair, and may your bravery be well rewarded!
