Eye of the Kraken is brought to you by Play ‘N Go and has 9 reels and 8 paylines. With a 3×3 grid on show, it’s playable from 20p to £100 a spin. As with all Play ‘N Go titles, it can be played across all devices including mobile and tablet. Set underwater, Kraken is a legendary sea monster that resides off the coasts of Norway and Greenland. It’s a giant squid to be about 40 to 50 feet long with huge tentacles.
With a lot of detail graphically and an intense soundtrack, you will see diving boots, harpoons, compasses, oxygen tanks, torpedoes, diving masks, the captain, navigator and engineer. You will win if you line up 3 matching symbols or form a pattern of 4 of more with the torpedo offering 20 times your bet if you get 3 on a payline.
Look out for torpedoes though as there is a torpedo meter the right-hand side of the reels. You will see the number 50 displayed meaning that if you collect 50, you will activate the Conquer the Kraken bonus feature. Here you get to pick 3 of the Kraken’s tentacles to win cash prizes up to an impressive 500 times your stake!
Be on the lookout for diving helmets as 5 of them will activate the Dive Mode – this takes you to the free spins game where you will granted 9 free spins. The treasure chest scatter symbols are important as they offer big rewards – 9 of them will reward you with a nice 150 times your stake win.
In the base game, look out for the Kraken – the reels will shake as his tentacles slither on to the reels to change symbols into wilds. This can give you big wins if you get plenty of wilds! On top of this, if you get the same symbol in the 4 corners of the grid you will get 10 times your stake with the same symbol in the middle of all 4 sides giving you 5 times your stake.
Play ‘N Go has done a great job with Eye of the Kraken – I really like the look and feel of it and it’s a little different to what they’ve produced. Variance wise, it’s the middle which his good and I predict this game will prove to be a big hit. If you like underwater adventure, Nemo’s Voyage by WMS is very good as to is Lord of the Ocean by Novomatic.
