Pragmatic’s Play allows you to return to the ocean in this breathtaking sequel. Simply head to the uncharted depths of the ocean. You can activate various features on your journey, including wild respins, shifting stacked wilds, and some sweet win spins.
Credits to the Pragmatic’s designers, they have created a less ghostly game compared to the original’s dreaded monster appeal. Generally, the game follows the original Norse mythology theme and similar imagery. Nevertheless, visuals are relatively darker, while graphics and animations are clear-cut to marry the theme perfectly.

Release the Kraken 2 plays out on a 5x4 sub-sea grid and 20 winning lines. Its main symbols include the shark, Kraken wild, gold Kraken bonus, pufferfish, anglerfish, Eel, and common royals representing the low-paying symbols.
The base game’s aim is to get at least three similar symbols aligned from left to right on adjacent reels starting from the leftmost reel. With the shark, however, you can earn a payout from a minimum of two. The Kraken wild can appear randomly on any reel to substitute all other symbols except the Golden Kraken bonus symbol.
Release the Kraken is packed with in-game features right from the base game. Luckily, players do not go through complex processes to activate them. At any spin, there is a chance you will hit any of the following features randomly.
● Wild Respin Feature - If you are lucky to land 4 or more wild symbols, you will receive the payout per the paytable. You will also activate the free respin mode. Consequently, wilds will remain on your screen and move to a random position on the screen while other symbols respin. All winning combos are paid after each respin. If you are lucky to hit more wilds after the respin, you will be in for one more respin. The feature will ultimately end if you hit no more wilds after the respin.
● Shifting Stacked Wilds Feature - The feature activates when the Shifting Stacked Wild appears on reels 2, 3, and 4. The wild can hit randomly during any spin. When the spin ends, the symbol comes to the screen and covers the entire reel. For each position it moves forward, the player’s multiplier increases by x1. After all symbols are fully moved to the screen, the winning combos are paid by multiplying the win with the sum of all multipliers.
● Guaranteed Win Feature- Randomly, a Kraken can bring fortunes to a spin with no win. It appears on the screen and transforms the present symbols with multiplies of between x20 and x60 total bet.
Players can further leverage the game’s bonus by hitting at least 3 bonus symbols which activate a free spins round. Before you start the free spins round, the game allows you to participate in a mini-bonus game in which you can bag free spins plus a multiplier.
If you hit 3, 4, or 5 bonus symbols, you can enjoy a maximum bonus of; 15 free spins & x4 multiplier, 20 free spins & x6 multiplier, and 20 free spins plus x10 multiplier, respectively.
The bonus is played with Persistent Wilds which move on each spin.
Release the Kraken is an immersive game that offers exciting improvements from the original release. If you prefer ocean-inspired games, throw yourself into the grid and stand a chance of bagging an x5,000 maximum payout.
