Release the Kraken (Pragmatic Play) slot game review

Release the Kraken is a nice looking, cartoonish style game based around the myth of the monstrous sea creature that, according to legend, sealed the fate of many a sailor in the earlier part of the 19th century. The game is in no way frightening, however, except perhaps for the brutal mathematical makeup.

The non-threatening appearance of this game should not fool anyone, as this is a high volatility slot like Pragmatic Play is well-known for releasing. It all plays out on 5 reels, 4 rows and 20 paylines, and you can place bets between 20p and £100 per spin across all platforms and devices.

There are 4 different bonus features already in the base game, and the free spins feature comes with a progressive multiplier and sticky, roaming wilds. This is where you can win up to 10,000 times your stake, but the game will test your patience at times also. The RTP of 96.5 % is generous enough, but the dry spells can crush your bankroll if you’re not careful.

What symbols are there?

The wild symbol and the Kraken anchor both pay the same here, and they are the most valuable symbols on this game by far. You also find a small variety of other sea creatures here, as well as the regular royals of lower value. You need to land between 3 and 5 matching symbols on a payline to win, and here we present you with the paytable for Release the Kraken slot:

  • Bubble wild - Pays 25x for 5 on a payline
  • Release the Kraken anchor - Pays 25x for 5 on a payline
  • Shark - Pays 12.5x for 5 on a payline
  • Turtle - Pays 10x for 5 on a payline
  • Blue fish - Pays 7.5x for 5 on a payline
  • Green/yellow fish - Pays 5x for 5 on a payline
  • Royal symbols - Pay either 4x or 2x for 5 on a payline

What are the bonus features?

During the base game, 3 of kraken’s tentacles can suddenly appear in front of the reels. You then get to pick 1 of the 3, and this will give you one of the following bonus features for the next spin:

  • Kraken Lockin – you open 3 chests, and to get either more kraken wilds, continue spinning (which does nothing) or 2x multiplier. Collect symbol ends the feature.
  • Colossal Kraken – lands a 4x3 sized kraken wild, and if fully visible, it will cover 3 full reels for 1 spin.
  • Infectious Kraken – lands a kraken wild that turns adjacent symbols into wilds.

There is also a Sunken Treasure Bonus game you can trigger, and this is done by landing a bonus symbol on reels 1 and 3, while at the same time landing a chest symbol on reel 5. Again, you get to pick from 3 different chests, and here you will win a cash prize. The good news is that you keep picking more cash prizes, until you find a collect symbol which ends the feature.

Free spins in Release the Kraken

The Roaming Kraken Free Spins feature is the highlight of this game, and you need to land a bonus symbol on reels 1 and 3, as well as a free spins symbol on reel 5, in order to trigger the bonus round. Also here you get to pick from different chests, and see how many free spins you can gather before you hit the collect symbol. Usually, you will get a regular 10 to 12 spins, but more is also possible.

You will get either 1, 2 or 3 spins from each chest, and the feature starts as soon as you find a collect symbol instead of extra spins. The reel set will now expand from 20 to 40 ways to win, and you start with a 1x multiplier. The progressive multiplier will increase by 1x for every wild you land during the feature, and all wild symbols become sticky and move around for each new spin.

What is the jackpot (max win)?

You cannot win any kind of jackpot here, but when the number of paylines double during the bonus round, the potential also effectively doubles to 1,000 times your stake. Factor in the progressive multiplier, and you have a max win potential of 10,000 times your stake. This is solid, even for a highly volatile game, and it means that you can win up to £1 million if you play with the highest stake.

SlotCatalog verdict

Release the Kraken comes with an abundance of bonus features, and you better enjoy opening treasure chests if you’re gonna have a good time with this game. The free spin progressive multiplier is the key to bigger wins, but the high volatility will make you endure some rather excruciating dry spells, that sometimes seem to drag on forever.


  • 3 random bonus features in the base game
  • Free spins with progressive multiplier
  • High volatility and 10,000x max win potential


  • Might be too volatile for some players attracted to the cartoonish style
