- An impressive sequel from Pragmatic Play
- Wild respins can lead to moving wild symbols
- Free spins bonus offers a deal or no deal like bonus
Release The Kraken 2 slot from Pragmatic Play is a well-designed sequel that’s surprisingly different from the original. It’s a fun-looking game with a nice design and colourful sea creatures. There are lots of features on offer here, and we’ll discuss them in detail shortly. There’s a 5×4 grid to play on with 20 pay lines. You need a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols. These are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- 10, Jack or Queen
- King or Ace
- Bulb Fish
- Puffer Fish
There is also a wild, and this substitutes for all others in a winning combination apart from the scatter. It can appear n all reels and is more valuable on its own than the shark symbol.

Release The Kraken 2 Slot Bonuses and Features
Wild Respin. This is a random feature where, if 4 or more wild symbols hit, it can be triggered. The triggering wilds stay on screen and move to a random position whilst the other symbols respin. If more wilds land, more respins are given. It ends when there are no more respins.
Shifting Stacked Wilds. A stacked wild symbol can appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 at random. At the end of the spin, stacked wilds are brought fully into view, and for each position moved, a multiplier is increased. Win are paid out when it’s fully in view.
Guaranteed Win. At random, on a non-winning spin the Kraken can come out and change symbols to give you a win up to 60x your stake.
Free Spins Bonus. This is triggered when you land 3 or more scatters anywhere on the reels. It’s shown as a golden octopus. Before the bonus starts, a mini bonus can be played to give you a combination of free spins and multipliers depending on the number of scatters. This starts at 4 spins and a 2x multiplier, but with 5 scatters you can get 20 spins and a 10x multiplier. The mini bonus is a bit like deal or no deal, where offers are made and eventually you’ll have just 1 chest left where you’ll get an offer based on what’s already gone. Once the bonus starts, 40 pay lines are in play with the given multiplier on each spin. Wilds that land will also become sticky, staying on screen until the end of the bonus, moving to a new position after each spin. If a golden wild lands, it increases your multiplier by 1x.
Bonus Buy. Players outside the U.K. can buy the bonus for 100x your stake, or 250x for the VIP bonus where 5 scatters are guaranteed.
Release The Kraken 2 slot from Pragmatic Play is packed with features, both in the base game and free spins bonus. You can get wild resins, stacked wilds and guaranteed wins in the base game, all of which are pretty decent. The free spins bonus has a fun deal or no deal style mini bonus, offering quite a few free spins and multipliers with enough scatters. Sticky wilds really help here too, especially the golden ones that give you more multipliers. Overall, it’s a solid game and there’s very little for me to complain about.
