What’s worse than a rugged bounty-hungry pirate on the high seas? A pirate in a flying ship who is also a Kraken. Pragmatic Play brings the Kraken’s Sky Bounty slot, a pirate-themed adventure where the reels are designed on a skyship. Both the visuals, character design and music are neatly crafted and quite immersive to get you in the mood of a pirate.
Furthermore, the gameplay loop of the base game is quite exciting due to the gigantic wilds and multipliers the players can land. This is one of those games centered around one base extra feature and these are the random mega wilds. Free spins only further boost this feature.
As for the payout values, this game features a somewhat higher wagering ceiling than regular Pragmatic Play slots. With a $300 maximum bet and a 5000x the bet maximum payout, the winning potential seems slightly above average. The return-to-player value is 96.05% along with a high volatility value.
Let us pilot our skyship and analyze the game in this Krakens Sky Bounty slot review.SHOW MORESHOW MORESHOW LESS
Pragmatic Play’s Kraken’s Sky Bounty slot is based around fixed paylines, 50 of them in fact. This increased number means the reel board is also bigger with 6 reels and 6 rows. The goal is simple, arrange 3-6 identical symbols in one of these active paylines for a payout. All wins pay left to right.
To play the game, you first need to place a bet anywhere from $0.25 to $300 which is an increased wagering ceiling for PP games. The maximum win is 5000x the bet with RTP values of 96.05% that barely increases to 96.06% and 96.07% when using the Ante Bet and the Buy Feature respectively.
There are 11 regular paying symbols with the 6 low-wins being various gems and the 5 high-wins being various pirate items. The low-wins will get you anywhere from 2x to 3x the bet if you land 6 of them in a payline. As for the high-wins, they can get you anywhere from 3x to 20x the bet in the same circumstances.
Wilds and Scatter Bonus symbols also appear in the base game. The latter substitutes for all regular symbols while the former is used to trigger free spins. Both of them have their very own payout value.
As we mentioned the Kraken’s Sky Bounty slot is based around a single powerful extra feature. This is the Random Expanding Wild which appears in both the base game and free spins. At the beginning of any random spin in the base game a 2×2 up to 6×6 square is marked on the reels somewhere. If a wild lands during that spin inside of that square, it expands to cover the entire square.
These mega wilds are pretty powerful but that’s not all. If multiple wilds land in the square, the newly expanded wild also has a multiplier value. This value is equal to the number of wilds inside the area. This boost applies to all wins of which the expanding wild is a part of.
Lastly, if you land 3 or more bonus scatter symbols you trigger 6 free spins. During the free spins, the wild square mark is present on each spin and moves to random positions. It starts as a 2×2 area and increases if you land additional bonus scatter symbols during the feature. Landing extra scatters also awards additional free spins.
You can also buy free spins for 100x the bet or increase their chances of landing for 1.2x the bet.
The Kraken’s Sky Bounty slot by Pragmatic Play is a neat little sky pirate-themed game with a powerful extra mechanic. Random expanding wilds are a thrilling feature and the added wild multipliers just increase the fun. There is nothing particularly negative we have to say about this game. It does not excel nor lag behind in any particular area.
It has a light-hearted art style and a gameplay loop with a decent RTP value and payouts. Other than the expanding wilds, there are no other bonus features. We predict the game will be quite fun for a while after its launch and become slightly repetitive due to the single extra feature. That said, it is indeed a decent Pragmatic Play game that we recommend you try if you like the theme.
