Kraken Conquest

Kraken Conquest

No prizes are paid out for correctly guessing the theme of Leander Games’ Kraken Conquest slot. Based on the old Norse legend of a giant leviathan who sucked sailors and ships down to their depths, the slot offers a refreshing new look at Norse mythology. Whereas most of those games are centred on Vikings or deities, Kraken Conquest serves up something different. It isn’t just the theme of the game which stands out. This Leander developed slot also features Bonus Boost meters which make the game stand out. 

Kraken Conquest is played out over the usual array of 5 reels and 25 lines. However, Kraken Conquest is not going to be as cheap to play as you might imagine, with bets rising from 50p up to £25 a game. This monster-themed slot game does at least deliver a considerable non-progressive jackpot prize, which is pegged at around a thousand times whatever is wagered. The RTP rate in Kraken Conquest is average, at 95.96% in all.  

Special Features 

Like most modern video slots, wild symbols can spring up on the reels of this game. They appear as the Kraken’s tentacles, and these sucker-filled emblems can substitute for any standard paying icons. These aren’t going to help with free spin symbols, though. 

Those free spin symbols appear as the eye of the mythical beast. The scatters can appear on the first, third and fifth reels of the Kraken’s Conquest slot, and you’ll need them on all three if you hope to trigger the bonus round. 

The base game also has two randomly triggered features. The Lightning Strike mode can deliver an instant win cash prize. The Kraken Slap turns an entire reel into a wild symbol at random. 

Bonus Features 

After initiating the free spin bonus, players will be rewarded with a total of eight free games. A 2x multiplier will double any wins you initially land in the round, but wild symbols appearing on the reels can raise those multipliers to a value worth up to 8x. Of course, landing three more scatter symbols will trigger another set of eight free spins. 

While the bonus is being played, the Bonus Boost meter will catch your attention. Whenever a free spin icon lands on the first and third reels, it will raise the meter just a touch. Boosting the meter at least four times will trigger further goodies. 

To the right of the reels is a Kraken Cash meter. This raises when tentacles appear on the three central reels. It will trigger increasing multipliers (as mentioned), but if the meter is filled, a Kraken Cash round is triggered. What follows is a click and win game which can deliver cash prizes, extra lives, and multipliers. 

Overview 

Leander Games Kraken Conquest is costly to play. However, the slot is unique in terms of its theme, and when it comes to its special features. If you can stomach the somewhat costly wagering range, there is lots of fun to be had here.
