Made for the brave, here's "Beat the Beast: Kraken's Lair" from Thunderkick

Thunderkick has launched the first of a new slot series - and we’re loving the high volatility thrills. 

We don’t know if there’s been something in the water, but we’ve already seen a few Kraken-themed slots launched this year, and it’s only February. The mythical giant squid-type monster seems to have emerged… and now Thunderkick has given it a go too in their new release, Beat the Beast: Kraken’s Lair. 

Though it may not be the most original theme, they’ve certainly done it justice in this highly thrilling and highly volatile game. Minimal but engaging features, a maximum payout of up to 7,777 times your stake, and a solid RTP of 96.12% make this a winner in our books. 

 

The first of five

As it turns out, Beat the Beast: Kraken’s Lair is the beginning of a brand new series from Thunderkick. Over the coming months, they’ll be bringing us four more titles to this five-part series, each featuring high volatility action and a different monster within. 

If this first slot, Kraken’s Lair, is anything to go by, we’re going to be looking forward to the rest of the Beat the Beast series. This slot may be relatively simple, but it’s hard-hitting and kept us entertained for ages - and really, that’s all we’re asking for. 

 

Flippin’ fun features

As we’ve already mentioned, the features of Beat the Beast: Kraken’s Lair are relatively simple compared to some of Thunderkick’s other slots. But they’re fun and they’re engaging, and when they hit - boy, does that Kraken hit hard. 

You trigger the Expanding Win feature whenever you land a payline that includes the Kraken Emblem symbol. This Emblem actually has two purposes in the game: it’s both wild and a scatter. Anytime it makes up a winning payline, the regular symbols in that line will expand to cover up the reel, giving you even more chances to win. 

If you find three or more of the Kraken Emblems though, you’re in for a real treat. This will take you to the free spins round, where three, four or five Emblems will award 2x, 20x or 200x multipliers respectively. 

During the free spins round, a Kraken Emblem will be added to the reels randomly before every spin, and you’ll also have the chance to retrigger the round by landing an additional three scatters. There’s no limit to how many times you can retrigger the round either, so this is where the wins can really get taken up a notch. 

 

A beast of a slot

Sure, the high volatility nature of this slot might mean you won’t see it pay out big on every spin - but it also means that when it does pay, it pays big. 7,777 time big, even. As the first slot of a five-part series, Beat the Beast: Kraken’s Lair has certainly raised the bar for the rest of the games… and we can’t wait to battle it out with the rest of the beasts.
