Kronos Unleashed can be played on all devices from €0.2 to €50 per spin and is considered a medium volatility game.
Design and Symbols
According to the legend, Kronos is depicted as a bearded old man, and since he is a Greek God, we would say that his representation in this slot game is spot on. The wild, which looks like a pantheon with the words wild at the bottom, substitutes for all symbols except for the scatter. The Kronos symbol pays both ways from left to right and right to left and is the highest paying symbol of the slot game. The Pegasus lion, what looks like a royal chair and a golden bracelet make up the higher value symbols. The A-J make up for the lower value symbols. All symbols fit nicely within the Ancient Greek Theme. If someone were to write an ode to Ancient Greece in the form of a song, the background music of Kronos Unleashed is what we think it would sound like. The calming flute and harp melodies turn into a thundery choir singing the words “kronos” during the kronos round. The anticipation that comes with a potential Jackpot win is also shown in the music, with drums hitting right before the power up symbol turns into a lightning bolt. A little trumpet victory sound follows the jackpot round and the free spins.
There is so much going on when it comes to special features in Kronos Unleashed, that we do not know where to start. Let’s try to break them down for you first. Here you should find: Lightning Re-spins, Free Spins, a Jackpot Bonus and the bonus and lightning re-spin guarantee.
Three or more scatter symbols trigger the Free Spins Bonus. If you manage to get five full scatters in the right positions, you could get a maximum of 200 free spins at one go.
- During this round, you can trigger both the lightning re-spin bonus and therefore the jackpot bonus.
- If you manage to land three or more scatters during the free spins round, you can retrigger an amount of free spins.
Lightning Re-spin Bonus
Whenever six or more Kronos symbols land on reel one, during both the base game and free spins round, the Lightning Re-Spin bonus is triggered.
- During this round, reel one is covered entirely by an expanding Kronos symbol, and only Kronos and Power Up symbols can land on your reels.
- Here you are given a base of three spins, and every time another Kronos or Power Up symbol land on your reel, you are awarded another re-spin. This keeps going until no more symbols show up on your reel.
If a power up symbol lands on your reel, it will randomly transform into one of four special symbols. Up to four power up symbols may transform into one symbol during the bonus:
- The Expanding Symbol: kronos symbols will fill all of the open positions surrounding the expanding symbol.
- Lightning Symbol: this activates the jackpot bonus. To read more about it, check out the Jackpot Bonus below.
- Arrow Up Symbol: an additional row will be added to the bottom of the grid. Here, each position is covered by Kronos symbols.
- The Plus Symbol: All kronos symbols change colour and pay a higher amount. They turn from yellow to red and from red to purple, each level paying higher than the one before.
To get to the jackpot, you must first and foremost get to the Lightning re-spin bonus, by landing a full kronos in the first reel of the base game or free spins.
- During the bonus, a power up must transform into the lightning symbol, which is the jackpot bonus.
- Here, there is a possibility to win a total of five jackpots between the mini, minor, major, mega and kronos.
- Alternatively, you can win monetary awards, anywhere between a 500-25,000.
Bonus and Lightning Re-Spin Guarantee
Both bonus games have a guarantee attached to them.
- If you land three scatters to move onto the free spins round, then you can rest assured that the end result of the free spins will have a 5x multiplier with them.
- The lightning re-spins round has a guarantee of minimum 1x your total bet. If you do not make any wins during this round, you can rest assured that a 1x multiplier will be added to the total winnings at the end of this round.
Reviewers’ thoughts on Kronos Unleashed
As you can see, Kronos Unleashed is brimming with special features. You can look at this from a positive side, that there is always something going on. You can also look at it from a negative side: can you please just let me experience the base game for once? Although we got to the Kronos round multiple times, we never got to see him change from red to purple. Given that this is a game with so many features including a progressive jackpot, we would love to see the bonus rounds you got to on our forums, so don’t be shy and post away.
