The new Beat the Beast: Release the Kraken online slot from Thunderkick is officially set to arrive in casinos on Wednesday 19th February 2020. Some of the first UK online casinos that will have access to this game are Casumo Casino, Mr Green Casino, Party Casino, PlayFrank Casino and PlayOJO Casino. The game is based on the mythical sea monster that resembles a giant squid, which has terrorized sailors in Scandinavian waters since the 1800s.

This new Thunderkick slot has 5 reels and 9 fixed paylines, and you will be able to take one spin of the reels from as little as £0.10 up to a maximum of £100.00 per spin. It will be released on the same day on desktop and mobile, and you will be able to launch this game instantly in your web browser. The Gold Kraken Emblem is the Wild Symbol, which also acts as the Scatter Symbol.

This Wild/Scatter Symbol can land in any position across all 5 reels, and it will substitute all other symbols on the reels to help form new line wins. One of the fun in-play features that you can look forward to on this new slot is the Expanding Win feature, which will trigger each time a new line win occurs, but only when the line win contains one or more Wild/Scatter Symbol. The Winning Symbol will then expand to fill the entire reel from top to bottom, which can help for even more winning combinations.

The most exciting thing about the new Kraken’s Lair online slot is a Free Spins Bonus that will only ever trigger when 3 or more Wild/Scatter Symbols land anywhere in view on the same spin. When this happens, you will instantly be awarded a guaranteed bonus of 10 Free Spins. 3 Scatter Symbols also gets you a cash prize worth 2x times your total stake, but 4 Scatter Symbols showing up gets you 20x times your total stake (and 10 Free Spins), and 5 Scatter Symbols gets you a whopping 200x times your total stake (and 10 Free Spins).

The good news is that there’s no limit to the number of Free Spins that can be retriggered, and during the Free Spins Bonus, it’s possible to win up to 7,777x times your total stake! While you’re waiting for this new Thunderkick slot to arrive, two of the other similar online slots that I can recommend checking out in the meantime include the new Release the Kraken online slot from Pragmatic Play, and the Eye of the Kraken online slot from Play’n GO.
