- 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
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.
