Pokie Review


Eye of the Kraken by Play’n GO is a pokies game for desktop, mobile and tablet play. It works on a three x three grid of symbols and offers eight fixed paylines. Players can choose to come in very low or very high; in addition, it is available for free play (just like the 100s of other free pokies) we have on site.

The theme is the Kraken, which is a mythical, octopus-like creature said to reside in the deepest oceans. Since sailors started exploring the world, mysterious disappearances were blamed on the Kraken rising up and pulling ships down to the ocean floor. In this game you join a group of adventurous explorers as they try to capture the treasure the Kraken has collected.

The symbols

There is a real mixture of symbols going on in this game, such as an untrustworthy-looking shipman, an explorer, an attractive adventuress, compasses, boots and a diving helmet.

Kraken tentacles appear for the Wild and can replace other symbols. When you land on one, the screen shakes and the tentacles glide around the reels to change symbols into the Wild symbols.

Playing and winning

Line up three matching icons or make combinations requiring four symbols to secure a prize. There are also symbols that are cumulative, such as the torpedo. Collect these and watch the counter to the right-hand side click down from 50. When a player has collected 50 torpedoes, they will be led through to the bonus feature.

In this typical choose or lose-style bonus game, players need to correctly select three of the kraken’s tentacles to win cash prizes. This round is called Conquer the Kraken and pays 500 x the total bet.

There is also Dive Mode, where players can secure nine free spins as a result of the reels landing on five diving helmets. Other than this, look out for the sapphire eye of the kraken and the treasure chest symbol.

The sapphire blue eye of the kraken is the Wild - get three of these to reap 20 x your original stake. Don’t forget the treasure chest symbols, as these can also pay out cash prizes. Land on nine and players will win 150 x their stake.

Look and feel

Eye of the Kraken has a great overall feel. The graphics are very sharp and full of intricate details; however, as the playing screen is only three x three, it doesn’t feel overwhelming. The characters and symbols have a spray-painted feel to them, which players who tire of flashy graphics will appreciate. The game play is simple and will come automatically to every player.

Overall

Eye of the Kraken is a very stylish, slightly steampunkish medium variance pokies game with superb graphics and backing music straight from the heart of the deep oceans. There is a good range of chances to win prizes and free spins without it seeming like too many other casino-style pokies. Landing on the bonus feature is fun and exciting and happens more often than expected, while collecting torpedoes makes a nice change. Overall, this is a very playable game both on desktop and mobile devices.
