Krakatoa is an active volcano located in Indonesia. The game is based on this volcano, as it is one of the most powerful volcanoes in the world. The last most powerful eruption happened way back in 1883 but it’s still alive to this day. This eruption was so powerful that some 70% of the island areas surrounding the volcano were destroyed and nearly 40000 people died in the tragedy.

If you like the Aristocrat slot machine Pompeii with a similar theme then this is your go-to game to take a free spin on for free or real money at select casinos.

Developed by Ainsworth, Krakatoa Lucky Break is a 5 x 3 -reel slot with an RTP of 96.25% and a medium to high variance level. The game has 30 pay lines and was released in 2019, the slot game has a wild symbol, a scatter symbol and free spins bonuses.


You will be seeing symbols on the reels related to the volcano and Indonesian culture in general. Lot’s of bold almost fluro colours on the game reels make this a visually appealing pokie.

These symbols are:

  • Bird
  • Komodo Dragon
  • Temple
  • Wayang Puppet

The slot game also has low-value symbols like A, J, K, Q, and 10. These low-value symbols pay between 6 and 90.


Here is the paytable for the base game. All pays are shown as currency values, and they change according to your bet size. The paytable below is for maximum bet of 36 coins per spin.

Number of Appearance in a Pay Line SYMBOLS
Bird Komodo Temple Wayang Puppet
5 240 150 120 120
4 84 36 30 30
3 12.0 6.0 6.0 6.0
2 3.6

To win, you have to land a winning combination of at least three same symbols on a pay line. The exception is the bird which awards prizes for two symbols only.

You can bet between 0.90 and 36 coins per spin. All lines are fixed so you cannot decrease or increase the number of active pay lines.


Here are the feature symbols of the game.

  • Wild – the wild is the erupting volcano; it substitutes for missing symbols to make a winning line, but it cannot substitute for the scatter.

The wild can turn into a multiplier if used to make a winning combo. The wild can give either a 2x or 3x multiplier value, which would be used for the line that won a prize because of the wild.

The wild can also randomly stack on the reel where it landed, giving you more opportunities to win.

  • Scatter – the scatter is a block that has the text “free games”. Landing six of this would trigger the free spins bonus. It also pays 36 coins if you landed six of it anywhere on the grid.
  • Lucky Break – this is another scatter symbol, and it looks like a golden gong. If you land this, you will have a chance to win any of the five jackpots on the game. These jackpots are mini, minor, major, maxi, and grand. The Lucky Break scatter symbol also awards 1 to 3 free spins bonuses.

The jackpot prizes are fixed. They are not progressive type jackpots. The payouts are:

  • Mini – 30
  • Minor – 120
  • Maxi – 600
  • Major – 1,500
  • Grand – 15,000

Winning any of these five prizes is random. Once you land the Lucky Break symbol, it is going to reveal which of these five prizes you won.


While there are jackpots in the game, you need six of the scatter symbols to win a cash prize. The cash prizes in the base game are also small compared to other slots.

The wild does not pay money, but it does double or triple your win. The golden gong is basically the only symbol you have to look forward to in this game, as it is the key to winning any of the five jackpots.

We will give this Ainsworth slot machine a rating of 9.0 points out of 10, it’s one of the best free Ainsworth online pokies games that we have reviewed, it also paid quite well when we played it for real money gaming.
