You can try the Release the Kraken Slot here for free or at any Pragmatic Play casino in real mode. 

Learn How to Play the Release the Kraken Slot

Before you can delve into the underwater realm you’ll need to learn how to place your bets:

  • Coin denominations can be set by clicking the +/- value which will increase or decrease your stakes to form your total bet
  • Hitting spin will set the reels in motion
  • Access the games menu if you get tired of spinning the reels and use the auto play feature

Slot Features

This game really comes to life when the features kick in and there are a few to enjoy to say the least. There are three random bonus features to unleash in the main game which can also be accompanied by free spins. There’s also an expanded reel set to increase your chances of winning during free spins.

Random Spin Features

  • Infectious Kraken Wilds - If you pick this feature the game will add at least one infectious Kraken Wild to your reels. These Wilds will then also turn the adjacent symbols into Wilds too
  • Kraken Locking Wilds - If this feature is triggered you’ll see a new Wild added to the game. You’ll be given three chests and you’ll have to pick one by one. You can get awarded with features like ‘More Wilds’ or ‘Continue Spinning’ which does nothing. You can also get ‘All Wins x2 and Collect’ and then ‘Co­lle­ct’ will end the feature
  • Colossal Kraken Wilds - This feature will add giant 3x4 Wilds which are guaranteed to land on your reels. It has the possibility to cover 12 symbol positions only this is not guaranteed

During any of the Random Spin features special Wilds will substitute for any symbol except the Bonus, Free Spins and Chest Bonus Symbols. 

Sunken Treasure Bonus

The game has different bonus symbols to look out for as well. When the Ship Sails Bonus Symbols appear on reels one and three accompanied by a Chest Bonus on reel 5 you’ll trigger the games Sunken Treasure Bonus. 

You’ll see three chest appear on the reels and you must open one at a time to reveal cash prizes. You’ll continue opening the chests and winning cash prizes until you land on ‘Co­lle­ct’ which will end the feature. 

Roaming Kraken Free Spins

Potentially, these are the real highlights of the game. This feature is triggered when the Bonus Symbols lands on reels one and three and the Free Spins Symbol on reel five. You won’t get awarded with a set number of spins instead you’ll see a screen of chests which will reveal the spins. Similar to the other features you’ll keep picking the chests and collecting spins until you find ‘Co­lle­ct’ that will end the feature and start the free spins.

It is then during the free spins that the expanded reels come into play. Free spins will be played across 40 palines instead of the usual 20 and win multipliers will start at x1. Every time you land a Wild on the reels it will stay there and roam and also increases the multiplier by +1. 


This is another high variance game from Pragmatic Play giving you the chance to win the games maximum potential of 10,000x your total stake. There are plenty of features included in the game to keep you entertained and with the added random features you’ll just never know when you’re going to win. 

The great news is that the bonus features can really give you the chance to earn some cold hard cash. Like the Sunken Treasure Bonus which offers an unlimited number of picks so you’ll just keep winning cash prizes until the feature ends. Same as the free spins, you don’t just get given a set amount so there’s not telling how many you’ll win making it a must try game.

Release of the Kraken is a newly slot designed by the legendary Pragmatic Play provider. I mean come on the things we saw Pragmatic Play is capable with their slots releases as well as their live casino and not to mention social tournament hosted by the famous Dan, is just fantastic. They really did a good thing getting Dan in their employ as he simply just does great things in the production line of things.

Kraken is set in the ocean back drop with a few features on hand. This slot offers 5 reels and 20 pay lines which has a lot to offer. You will be playing the base game which have decent with your standard card deck symbols as well as the sea life of different kind of fish like sharks, normal fish, sharks as well as turtle and a shit steering wheel which is your highest paying symbol offering x25 your stake for 5 of a kind. Getting x25 times your stake sounds little doesn't it? Wait till you hit the free spins feature with an increasing multiplier through out the feature for bigger wins.

Random base game features are on show that just pop up and it’s a pick me feature. You can either choose Colossal Wilds (3x4 block), Infection Wilds (Spreading few spaces on the reels) and kraken locking wilds, which locks, and you get to pick again until collect appears. The spin will play out and wins are awarded after the feature extras kick in.

Landing 2 scatter symbols on reel 1 and 3 together with bonus or free spins symbol on reel 5 triggers the feature. Let me be honest, the bonus is a click me feature and instant wins are awarded, but from all honesty that is not where you win are produced.

Your wins are hidden in the free spins feature where you need to land wilds on the reels to increase your multiplier which remain in place for the duration of your free spins. Now here is where things get interesting – Having a few wilds, with x4 or 5 multiplier and stacked kraken symbol which lands easily is your path to Kraken Wins and that means Epic wins. I have had a few decent x400 or x500 wins in 1 spin and I have seen better. I would recommend you give this baby a run and hit a home run to have spending money for your holidays!
