Break Away is a new online slot game powered by Microgaming with 243 with ways to win, stacked wilds, rolling reels, and a free spins bonus feature. It is one of the 243 ways slot games that have become more of a staple as far as new games go by the software. This game, along with Octopays, are the newest games to be released by the software group and have quickly become quite popular with players, including myself.
The theme is hockey; who doesn’t love hockey and slot machines? I know that I, and many of my fellow Canadians, love a good game of hockey, mix that with a slot game and there are hours of entertainment available without even having to leave the house. The NHL and NHLPA are once again destroying a season due to greed on both sides, but we won’t get into that right now, let’s focus on this great new slot game.
The Rolling Reels feature comes in to play every time symbols line up for a win. After the win is tallied up, the symbols explode and new ones fall in. If they line up for a win, they will explode again, and the process continues until no winning combinations are found.
The wild symbol is only stacked on reels 3, 4, and 5 and is the game logo for Break Away. The wild symbols can make up reel combinations for all other symbols besides the scatter and once they are activated they create a very cool animation on the screen. That’s part of the charm of the game, great design and very well put together. Watch out for the Smashing Wild feature too, two hockey players will skate in from the sides and smash into each other, turning one of the middle three reels wild.
The Free Spins feature is triggered by 3, 4, or 5 scatters landing on the reels during the same spin. You are awarded 15, 20, or 25 free spins based on the number of scatters that trigger the feature. Not only will 5 scatters give you 25 free spins, it will also give you up to 125,000 coins depending on your bet size; with a $5 spin you would win $1250. During the free spins, the rolling reels feature kicks it up a notch. The first win on a free spin is not multiplied, but after the symbols explode and new ones drop in the next win is multiplied by two. The multiplier goes up by one each time symbols line up for a win, up to a maximum of 10x.
The coin denominations vary also so it’s a perfect game for just about any budget. Whether you are a low roller, medium roller or high roller you will find a bet that’s right for you. That’s what makes this game even more attractive; anyone can play it and any bet can win a huge amount.
