Beat The Beast Krakens Lair Slot Machine (Thunderkick)

Beat The Beast Krakens Lair SlotThis slot game forms a series that Thunderkick announced.  The series, which goes by the title, Beat the Beast kicks off with Kraken’s Lair. Here, we get to explore the bottom of the sea.

The Kraken is a deep-sea monster but that should not scare you since Thunderkick has used some of the best features and designs to make this game quite exciting.

Beat the Beast: Kraken’s Lair is 5x3 reels. The slot has 9 active paylines which have the potential to bring along winnings of up to7, 777x the stake.

Among the features found on this slot are Free Spins, mixed wild (scatters), as well as Expanding Wins.

Betting And Prizes

Wagering is possible on the 9 lines and the minimum that you can use is $0.10, to as high as $100 per spin

Slots that offer a jackpot are my favourite and Kraken’s Lair does not disappoint with their large jackpot that has the potential to pay as high as 7,777x the stake.

This is a very good offer coming from a modern slot, and you can be able to get to that level with the assistance of features.

Although the slot’s volatility is quite high, Thunderkick has announced a decent RTP of 96.12%, which works hand in hand with the high variance.

Beat The Beast: Kraken’s Lair Slot Features

The slot has only one special feature symbol (Kraken Emblem).  This is a mixed symbol that works as a wild and a scatter at the same time.

As the wild, this symbol can be used to form winning combinations due to its ability to substitute for all the regular symbols.

There is also a feature called Expanding Win, which is one of the slot’s most unique symbols. Kraken Lair’s regular features are in the form of free spins.

Theme & Design

For the first game in this series, Thundekick has used Kraken as the main creature.  I act as the feature symbol where it appears in a goldish emblem.

Additional symbols that I have seen on Beat The Beast are treasure chests, tridents as well as pendants. There are a number of Royals to represent the low-value symbols.


Beat The Beast has kick-started the launch of this series from Thunderkick, and from my experience, the series seems to be off to a good start.

Kraken’s Lair is the first of the five slot machines that Thundekick has set to release in this new slot series.

It’s a combination of many things, including a decent RTP, high variance, and potentially high payouts.

Overall, it is a slot good for both new and experienced wagers.
