Pragmatic Play returns to the Abyss in release The Karen 2™
The provider releases a new slot title in the Release the Kraken series
Pragmatic Play dives back into the depths of the ocean with Release the Kraken 2™.
The slot is set across a 5×4 grid and features symbols depicting various sea creatures, including sharks, eels, and angler fish which must form matching combinations to award a win. These symbols are joined by a wild which substitutes all other symbols in game except the scatter.
During any base game spin, random features can be triggered which boost wins and aid the player in the creation of matching symbols. Wild respins lock wild symbols into position and can be retriggered by landing additional wilds.
Shifting stacked wilds can appear on the second, third and fourth reels and fill an entire reel with wilds, moving the reels with each subsequent position while increasing its multiplier value by 1x. A guaranteed win spin can also be triggered, altering losing symbols to award wins worth between 20x and 60x.
Landing three or more scatter symbols awards the free spins round, and prior to entering the round, players are given the chance to gamble on the number of spins awarded and the multiplier that will be present. Golden wilds are also present and increase the game’s multiplier by an additional value of 1x.
Release the Kraken 2™ follows in the footsteps of recent hits such as Sword of Ares™, Big Bass Keeping It Reel™ and Candy Stars™, which reside amongst a collection of over 250 titles in Pragmatic Play’s award-winning games portfolio.
Irina Cornides, Chief Operating Officer at Pragmatic Play, said: “This sequel aims to take everything that made the originaltitle so popular, increasing the entertainment value to provide new heights of engagement for players.
“The slot offers multiple features in the base game and the free spins round can be gambled, upgraded and has increased chances of winning, which all work in harmony to create a stand out title.”
