For centuries seamen have been talking about it.. the Kraken. According to the myth, this huge sea monster was seen along the coast of Norway. This Eye of the Kraken slot let’s you dive to the bottom of the ocean and fight the Kraken. The first thing that we’ve noticed is the number of reels, usually most video slots have 5 reels but this slot offers 3 reels. The design looks like a submarine, we see diving instruments and regularly there are some air bubbles going up. The symbols contribute to this underwater theme with some old-fashioned diving equipment. The Eye of the Kraken slot has some nice bonus features. For example, collect 50 torpedoes and activate the bonus round, here you can win up to 500x your bet! Go into battle with the Kraken, choose 3 treasure chests that you want to grasp out of the tentacles of this sea monster. But this slot has got much more in store for you like free spins and tentacle Wilds that appear randomly. This game from Play’n Go offers 8 paylines and a jackpot prize of 50.000 pound!
A unique style
Eye of the Kraken has its own unique style, not 5 but 3 reels. The number of paylines is also much lower than other online slots. For example, Ariana is also a slot with an underwater theme, but this game offers 25 paylines. The fact that Eye of the Kraken offers less reels and paylines doesn’t mean less fun, on the contrary. It just creates a whole new gaming experience. Much praise for the developer Play’n Go when it comes to the design style. We hear thrilling music and the occasional diving sound effects. The various symbols of this game are used in some type of diving system that regularly let’s some air escape. Judging by the symbols and graphics this story took place in the past. We see symbols of old-fashioned looking diving equipment like a diving helmet, scuba tank, shoes, compass, harpoon and a torpedo. Also, the different characters in the story have their own symbol. There is a captain, sailor and engineer.
