Another video slot themed after Norse mythology is coming out of Thunderkick’s creative kitchen. Players should take care when playing the 2020 release because the mighty Kraken is coming. Beat the Beast: Kraken’s Lair is a 5-reel video slot that benefits from 9 paylines.
The bottom of the sea is where the beast lives and it is covered in shipwrecks. These ships once carried vast treasures that are now guarded by the Kraken and the riches could easily be yours. Land a win with the Kraken emblem and trigger the Expanding Win feature, where the winning icons expand individually. The Kraken is both Wild and Scatter, so use the beast to trigger free spins.
Play Beat the Beast: Kraken’s Lair
The crisp graphics and a very good soundtrack make the Thunderkick product look quite scary, but do not be afraid once you start spinning the reels. You will see much of the terrible beast since the Kraken emblem is both Wild that substitutes for all regular icons and also Scatter that triggers up to 20 free spins. Kraken himself is the highest-paying regular symbol, and there is also the golden Kraken statue appearing on the reels. Expect Treasure Chests, Tridents and Lockets, as well as playing cards.
How to Play
When talking about the gameplay, it is as simple as breathing, with no complicated rules. The 2020 release features a standard 5x3 reel grid and benefits from 9 fixed paylines, which pay left to right, starting from the leftmost reel, with three of a kind being the minimum for landing payouts. Betting is fixed at 10 coins per spin, but the coin value can be changed, so players can wager from $0.10 to $100 per single spin.
Strategy & Tips
Land a winning combo with the Kraken emblem and you will trigger the Expanding Win feature. The regular symbol that is included in the winning combo will expand individually and secure you sweet payouts.
Three Kraken Wilds/Scatters on the reels at the same time will trigger you 10 free spins. During each freebie, a single Kraken icon will be placed on a random position on the reel grid, which will help you trigger the Expanding Win feature during freebies. If you land three or more Scatters before the feature ends, you will get 10 extra free spins.
You will not have to go to the bottom of the sea in order to see the famous beast, because the 2020 release is playable across all devices. You can play the Thunderkick product both on desktops and handheld devices.
