Even if you are not the biggest hockey aficionado in the world, you should at least give Microgaming’s: Break Away a go because you are definitely missing out on what it has in store. Break away is actually the result of a sports-themed rising trend that flooded the realms of the entire online slots industry. This slot offers 5 reels and staggering 243 ways to win the system, and utilizes extraordinary exploding technology when winning combinations are being formed, and almost photo-realistic graphics renderings, which when combined with chants from the fan zone make you feel like you are in the middle of a hockey game for a brief period of time.
Game on Ice
Break Away is the perfect exhibit for a top-notch graphic design and animations slot, whose symbols include all the ice hockey trademarks, such as ice skates, hockey sticks, masks, rinks, flaming pucks, and a biscuit in a basket. All hockey players are returning wins from 3x your initial wager, up to 10x your wager for standing alongside 5 of them on the field respectively.
Flamy Free Spins
The only thing that brings the heat upon this ice-theme, is the Flaming Pucks which determine the amount of Free Spins awarded depending on the number of Flaming Pucks seized on the playground. For example, seizing 3 Flaming Pucks will award you 10 Free Spins for your efforts, while 4 and 5 both award 20 or 25 complimentary spins respectively. Additionally, there are multipliers to make sure that you don’t miss the thrills of winning big, varying from 2x up to 10x your initial bet, which effectively increases every time you win multiple times in a row, resulting in frenzy explosions from the Rolling Reels.
Rolling Reels & Exploding Symbols
Probably the best feature on offer, right after Random Smashing Wilds that stays active not only during the base game but also during the Free Spins bonus round. Whenever you form a winning combination, all the symbols involved will explode and shatter after the payout, creating space for new ones to stumble down upon the playground, which if you’re lucky enough will significantly improve your financial state by providing multiple winning combination formations.
Inspiring Bonus Features
Microgaming’s: Brake Away graphics will never fail to amaze, and neither will the bonus features for that matter. What makes this slot stand out from the rest is its frequent payouts with smashing Wilds, Scatter bolsters, stacked Wild symbols, Rolling Reels, and last but not least, the main feature of Free Spins with up to 10 times your wager multiplier of your cash rewards. This thrilling action will make sure that you stay on the edge of your seat, just as if you are present at a live hockey game at Madison Square Garden! The game’s Logo is a special stacked Wild with the power to replace every symbol except the Flaming Puck, which on the other hand represents the game’s Scatter symbol. Furthermore, these Wilds can stack themselves when making an entrance on the 3rd
, and 5th
reel of the slot to increase the chances of winning combination formations. In addition, there is a rather elephantine Jackpot reward in store, worth an astonishing $125.000 at the maximum wager that is.
Random Wild Smashing
A fan favorite feature, second to none in the slot undoubtedly, because it always brings guaranteed cash rewards with it. This feature occurs during or at the end of a spin, and triggers itself randomly, enabling the players to skate their way to the center reels and smash it down. Moreover, 2 players can emerge a skate race only to crash themselves on the center reel, which in turn transforms the reel into an expanding Wild. Rolling Reels are excluded from this feature, and the only reels that are smash-eligible are the 2nd
, and 4th
as shown on the image above.
Break Away will have your heart racing from the very beginning, and will attract all the adrenaline junkies who fancy everything from Rolling Reels, to Free Spins action and always want to be in a rush. With bet denominations varying from as low as $0.50, and as high as $50, this online ice-hockey slot by Microgaming will definitely appeal all types of players. Good luck on the field, players!
