Release the Kraken 2 Slot (Pragmatic Play)

Release the Kraken 2 Slot (Pragmatic Play) slotRelease the Kraken 2 is the latest addition to the expansive Pragmatic Play collection, and this title is a sequel to a slot that was released back in 2020.

This new title is more vibrant, but with a similar game area, and I noticed that it also comes with upgraded graphics, plus a new set of premium icons on its reels.

I will highlight some of these things in the review below:

Game Set-Up

Release the Kraken 2 consists of a 5x4 reels grid, with up to 20 pay lines present.

There are some features that you will be working with, and they include free spins, Wild Respins, Kraken wilds, and some Shifting Stacked Wilds (random).

Betting and Prizes

Real money wagers on Release the Kraken 2 start from $0.20, all the way to $100 per spin.

5,000x is the top jackpot on Release the Kraken 2. While using the highest possible stake, the slot can pay up to $500,000 in cash. This is a medium-high volatility title, and therefore, its top jackpot is excellent.

The RTP comes in various ranges, and you will get different online casinos offering different percentages. The options are 96.50%, 95.50% and 94.50%.

Release the Kraken 2 Slot Features

On all the reels you will notice the presence of the Kraken Wild. In addition to serving as a replacement symbol, the wild here also appears 2 to 5 times (arranged left to right on a line). When this happens, you can be sure to enjoy a prize of between 0.5x and 20x the stake.

There is also another feature with a Kraken icon. This one comes in gold and is what the developer has offered as the bonus. With three of them on the reels, you will be able to trigger the free spins.

The number of available scatters is what will determine the rewards. In the best-case scenario, you can expect 5+ scatters to reward you with 6 to 20 free spins. These also come with multipliers of between 2x and 10x.

You can also trigger a couple of random modifiers. That way, the slot allows you to access Wild Respins, as well as the slot’s Shifting Stacked Wilds.

Last but not least is a Guaranteed Win feature. This can either deliver a prize, or even trigger free spins.

Theme and Design

Release the Kraken 2 offers the same aquatic creatures as its source of inspiration. Kraken serves as the main character, appearing as a wild (either regular or in stacked form, or in other cases in a golden form where it triggers the bonus).

For the regular symbols, we get some Royals, plus other better paying ones in the images of fish, sea snakes, sharks, and puffer fish.


Pragmatic Play rarely gets it wrong with its slots, and this one too performs above average. I enjoyed the design, and its powerful features, and considering its medium volatility, I can recommend Release the Kraken 2 to all levels of players.
