Release the Kraken 2 Slots
Pragmatic Play has added a few new features, like the wild re-spins, shifting stack wilds, a deal or no deal type aspect, and guaranteed wins. Even with all of these increased features, it still has the staple elements that made the original Release the Kraken great. Release the Kraken 2 is a bit more light and fun than the original, and the grid is located underwater. There's plenty of fish, seaweed, and coral along with majestic caves. This game is played on a five reel three-row grid and there are 20 pay lines. The grid doubles during free spin rounds, changing to 40 pay lines. This is a highly volatile game and has an RTP of 96.03%. The stakes range anywhere from 0.20 EUR to 100 EUR per spin. If you activate Ante Bet mode the RTP is altered to 96.01% and the chance of triggering this feature increases by 25%. There are nine regular symbols on the grid, and the low-paying symbols are the typical poker symbols, like 10, 9, A, K, Q, and J.
The special features in this game are the Shifting Stacked Wilds, the Guaranteed Wins, and the Wild Re-spins along with the free spin rounds with win multipliers and sticky roaming wilds.
If four or more wild symbols appear during a base game after the payout, you'll activate the re-spin mode. During this mode, wild symbols stay on the grid and move to a random position and the rest of the symbols re-spin. The game will payout for any winning lines after the re-spins, and if more wild symbols hit, another re-spin is awarded. If no more wilds hit after a re-spin, the feature will end. There is also the Shifting Stack Wild symbols, and these symbols appear on reels 2, 3, and 4 in the base game. If the spins cease, the Shifting Wild Stacks are moved and cover all positions on their reel. In each position, a Shifting Stack Wild is nudged and the multiplier is increased by +1. After the nudging occurs and the wins are paid, multipliers are added and applied.
The guaranteed win feature is a feature where randomly during a non-winning base game spin, the Kraken emerges from his lair and rearranges symbols to create a win ranging somewhere from 20-50x the bet. Plus, three scatter symbols might show up randomly because of this feature.
You can claim free spins when you land three or more scatter symbols. If you land three you'll receive 4 to 15 free spins along with a 6x multiplier. If you land four scatters, you'll receive 5 to 20 free spins with a 10x multiplier; if you trigger five scatters, you'll win somewhere from 6 to 20 free spins with a 10x multiplier. There is a mini-game featuring 16 boxes, and each box has a mixture of free spins along with a win multiplier. Once one box is selected, the player can either accept the box or reject the box. If you reject the box, several boxes are removed from the list, and other boxes replace them, and if you accept the box you'll receive whatever free spins and win multiplier is inside of the box. You can continue until only two boxes are left, and you need to choose one to open.
