About Release the Kraken
Pragmatic Play have produced some fantastic online casino games, with Sweet Bonanza and The Great Chicken Escape being two of the most memorable. With Release the Kraken, they’ve created a simplistic-looking slot with hidden depths, as three Wild features and Free Spins can all prove highly valuable.
The symbols on offer are a mixture of lower paying live casino royal playing card values of J, Q, K, & A, and higher paying sea creature symbols of Yellow Fish, Blue Fish, Turtles, and Sharks. The game’s logo is the most valuable, while the Bubbles are the main wild, with three bonus symbols of the Ship, Free Spins, and Chest Bonus, which can combine to trigger one of the additional features.

How To Play Release the Kraken
In Release the Kraken, you can edit the amount you are willing to wager on the next spin by using the (-) and (+) buttons in the bottom right to open the betting tab, where you can make your adjustments accordingly.
If you are happy with the bet amount you’ve set, one full single spin can be played through by clicking the Play button, with two white arrows forming a circle to the lower right-hand side of the game interface. Any wins that occur as a result of that spin will be directly added to your balance.
Beneath the play button is the autoplay function. This allows the game to play through a chosen number of spins automatically, either 10, 20, 30, 50, 70 or 100. Autoplay session loss and single win limits can also be set up, and the feature will automatically stop if either is hit.
If you require additional information for Release the Kraken, you can access the paytable, player information, and the settings through the buttons in the lower left section of the screen.
Release the Kraken Bonus Features
Base Game Modifiers
On any spin, players may benefit from any of three base game modifiers, that can improve chances of winning combinations. The modifiers are:
Kraken Locking Wilds: Wilds are added to the reels as they spin, and you will have to select from a treasure chest at random, which can award additional wilds, x2 multipliers, and continues until Collect is revealed.
Colossal Kraken Wilds: When the reels come to a halt, a 3x4 wild will be added to them at random, potentially forming huge wins.
Infectious Kraken Wilds: After a single spin, at least one Infectious Kraken symbol will appear, which can turn nearby symbols into additional wilds.
Sunken Treasure Bonus
If two Ships and a Chest Bonus symbol land on the reels, the Sunken Treasure Bonus will be triggered. You will be given the chance to choose from three chests, which contain various cash prizes. You can keep choosing from a new set of chests until Collect is revealed.
Roaming Kraken Free Spins
If two Ships are joined by a Free Spins symbol, you will unlock this round. Choose chests to accumulate a total number of Free Spins to be played, until Collect is uncovered. The round will then play out, with 40 paylines in play, and a win multiplier of 1x. This can be increased by any wild symbols that land, up to a maximum of 10x. The wilds also remain on the reels, roaming to a new position on every subsequent spin.
