Are you ready to travel below the depths of the ocean to face off with the mighty beast known as the Kraken? Do you have the guts to don heavy pieces of equipment, deal with smelly and salty shipmates in an effort to try to find lucrative treasures on the seabed? If so, then you need to try Eye of the Kraken by Play'n Go, which brings the action in spades.
Eye of the Kraken is a 9 reel, 8 payline video slot that goes for a unique look and feel that many punters may not have experienced in the past. The game's theme has a steam punk exploration vibe to it, giving us the following symbols: boots, a scuba tank, harpoon, compass, dive mask, gruff mate, beautiful technician, grumpy Captain, and torpedoes.
Players in Eye of the Kraken are looking to put together winning combinations on the 3x3 grid present on the reels. Each of the nine reels spins independently and you win by lining up combinations of 3 symbols in horizontal, vertical, or diagonal paylines, making eight paylines in total The game's features include a Kraken mode that is randomly set off, which sees the giant squid gripping the reels and turning random reels wild. Other features available include free spins, and a pick'em game that is dubbed "Conquer the Kraken". Any time you spin a torpedo symbol, it is collected and once you have tallied up 50, you enter the bonus game where you have to pick three tentacles to earn your treasure. The free spins mode is triggered when five or more dive helmets are unveiled, and you get 9 free spins.
Playing Eye of the Kraken, I found the slot to be a lot more fun than I expected, given what at first glance appears to be a limiting 3x3 configuration. This was due to the frequent hitting of the Kraken wild grippers as well as the dive mask wilds, which paid off very well for me. If you are a player who enjoys steam punk games or games that look a bit different, then the Eye of the Kraken slot is a game you need to try.
