Beat The Beast: Kraken's Lair is a high-variance video from Thunderkick.
The dangerous Kraken (the mythical mega-squid) makes the deep ocean unsafe and it's up to you to try and run away with the winnings.
The winnings can also increase considerably: the maximum payout per spin is no less than 7,777 x the total bet.
SuperBigWin has always been a big fan of Thunderkick, precisely because they were always original and never opted for the easy solution.
Yet they seem to have lost that creativity: for example, they released Esqueleto Explosivo 2 (the very nice one), no more than a sequel. And also this Beat The Beast: Kraken's Lair is not overflowing with originality: it is an almost 100% clone of The Falcon Huntress.
To top it all off: that Falcon Huntress was again a sort of copy of Book of Ra. Are you still following him?
Anyway: with Kraken’s Lair don't expect things you've never seen before.
Fortunately it is very tasty again.
How does Kraken’s Lair work?
Kraken’s Lair has 5 reels with 3 rows of symbols and 9 fixed paylines.
The betting range is between 0.10 euros and 200 euros per spin. If everything went well and you also played the maximum bet, you could win more than one and a half million euros.
The variance is high: this is an online slot machine where you have to take into account an erratic game play. And are you nice and quick on profit? Then apply the hit-and-run strategy. Pack and get out.
The theoretical payout percentage is 96.12%. Another thing that doesn't make us happy: Thunderkick has made the RTP of their slots a bit lower over the years.
Unfortunately, the times that Thunderkick slots paid 97% or 98% back to the player are far behind us.
Symbols and payouts
The Kraken (the purple giant squid) is the highest paying symbol. A five-of-a-kind from this whopper pays no less than 500 x the total bet. Do you know how to run a full screen with Krakens? Then you grab 9 x 500 = 4,500 x the bet.
The medium paying symbols consist of a golden squid, a treasure chest, a golden amulet and a trident. These symbols are worth between 25 x and 50 x the total bet on a 5-of-a-kind on an active payline.
Finally we come to the card symbols 10, J, Q, K and A. These are a maximum of 10 x and 15 x the total bet.
The wilds play an important role in this game. They not only act as a scatter symbol (which activates the bonus), but they also ensure that symbols unfold.
This works as follows: every winning combination of which a game is a part unfolds. For example, if you have a 5-of-a-kind with a wild symbol, all of these symbols will unfold and you will have the same 9 times five.
Free spins bonus
If you spin 3, 4 or 5 scatters, you will win 10 free spins.
No multipliers are active during the free spins. It is true that you get one wild scatter on the reels every turn.
This increases the chance that you:
The free spins know how to retrigger
Winning combinations with a wild in it
As a result, many folding symbols will get
The free spins bonus is very volatile: sometimes you barely win anything and sometimes you can just add a few hundred (or more!) Times your bet.
What do we think of the Beat The Beast: Kraken’s Lair slot?
Beat The Beast: Kraken’s Lair does not win the originality prize, but can be enjoyed very well.
We've all seen it before, but because of the beautifully elaborated theme and the high production values, for which Thunderkick is known, it is all very well put together.
Kraken’s Lair will not be a new online classic, but it is definitely worth a try.
3.8 out of 5 stars.
