Beat the Beast: Kraken’s Lair Theme/Symbols
With a Norse mythology theme, the Beat the Beast: Kraken’s Lair slot focuses on the beat that terrorised sailors off the coasts of Norway and Greenland. A giant squid essentially, you are taken under the water where you’ll see sunken ships – it has that distinct Thunderkick style which is great.
Symbols include A, K, Q, J and 10 low value royals as well as tridents, pendants, treasure chests, kraken idols and the kraken himself. The latter is by far the most high value symbol with 2, 3, 4 or 5 in combination giving you 1.5, 10, 50 or 500 times your stake.
Winning combinations are formed by getting 2 or more symbols (3 for the royals) from left to right on successive reels. To help you win, there’s a gold Kraken emblem wild/scatter symbol which replaces all symbols– 5 of these on show will pay out 500 x stake.
Expanding Win feature
Beat the Beast: Kraken’s Lair comes with an Expanding Win feature – when you get a winning combination involving a Kraken emblem symbol, the winning symbol (for example the treasure chest) will expand individually. This can help fill the reels with high value symbols.
Bonus Game feature
The Kraken emblem symbol also acts as the scatter – 3, 4 or 5 will give you 2, 20 or 200 times your stake and trigger the Bonus Game feature. Beginning with 10 free spins, a single Kraken emblem symbol will be randomly placed on any reel prior to each free spin – this increases your chances of triggering the Expanding Win feature. Furthermore, you can also retrigger the feature to give you 10 more free spins and 20 in total.
Beat the Beast: Kraken’s Lair thoughts
The Beat the Beast: Kraken’s Lair slot game is simple in terms of gameplay – however, it’s a high variance game that packs quite the punch. If you’re lucky, you could win 7,777 x stake on each spin or free spin – it’s more likely in the free spins due to a Kraken emblem being added on every free spin.
All in all, Kraken’s Lair is a good slot to kick off the Beat the Beast series with some serious payout potential. If this mythological beast is appealing, Pragmatic Play’s Release the Kraken is recommended – it offers 10,000 x stake payouts on each free spin.
