Break Away Slot

Microgaming

Become a hockey superstar in Break Away, a high-action five-reel video slot developed by Microgaming. This game offers stacked wild symbols, free spins, and an intense Smashing Wild feature. You can see how it plays for free right here on this page, or play for real money by visiting any of the Microgaming casinos listed below.

To play Break Away, first choose how much you want to wager per spin. The game uses a 243 ways layout, so you don't have to worry about individual paylines. Just use the - and + buttons to change your coin denomination, and then push “Coins” until your desired total wager is shown under “Bet”. Your total wager will be 50x the number of coins you select. Push “Spin” to begin, or use “Bet Max” to play 10 coins at a time.

In the base game, you'll win the amounts shown in the paytable if you get matching symbols from the leftmost reel to the right. Over 40 stacked wild Break Away symbols are on the reels, which greatly increase your odds of getting big symbol payouts. Additionally, hockey players will randomly crash into reels and turn them completely wild in the Smashing Wild feature, guaranteeing a winning combination.

The Break Away free spins feature is triggered with 3 or more scattered Hockey Pucks in any position. During free spins, you can get multiple consecutive wins per spin with Rolling Reels. Get lucky enough and you could get a multiplier of up to 10x.

The only 'break away' that I have liked so far is the song by Kelly Clarkson. My women that broke away I didn't liked, the women that got away too I didn't liked, now this Microgaming game, if it wants to break away from me, that I like. If it doesn't break away from me, then I will. Well, what do you know, an ending before a beginning, of my review that is, but never mind. Sometimes, I do like to start from the back. Hahaha.

I can't remember now how many of such similar games I have already encountered from the stable of Microgaming games. Seems like a thousand games already! Always with the same game design - 3 reels of Stacked Wilds on reels 3, 4 and 5, with Wilds that don't pay or double wins, with payouts that are almost forever low, and games that usually give me a pain in my-you-know-where! Microgaming, the Master of recloning, the Master of lazy game designing, heck, the Master of not good everything, as far as I am concerned!

If you've played Cashapillar from decades ago, if you've played Cool Wolf some years ago, if you've played Football Star, Rugby Star, Cricket Star, the moon and the star, then consider yourself as having played this Break Away game too! There's nothing different between all of them, just the pictures and the icons, but all performing in about the same way, mediocrely. And of course, none of these games are my favourite. They never will be either.

As I've said, the Wilds don't pay anything, they only come Stacked on reels 3, 4 and 5, and substitute for other symbols except for the Scatter symbol. 5 Scatters pay 250x the total bet. 3, 4 or 5 Scatters award 15, 20 or 25 free spins with an increasing multiplier on wins. No retriggering is possible. The symbols themselves pay from 10x down to 1.6x the total bet. Is that any good? Aargh!

DISLIKED

40 Extra Wilds on the reels? Yeah, right. I can put 400 Extra Wilds on the reels, but if most winning spins are only paying 25% - 50% of your bet, what's the point?! That random Smashing Wild feature in the base game, well, it has a guaranteed win no doubt, but have you kept a record of all its payouts? No right? Well, most of them pay peanuts! Just to add one extra feature into an otherwise monotonous repetitive game play. The Free Spins game? Hmm. No retriggers possible. 2 Scatters pay nothing. Every first win pays x1 your bet. The x3 or higher multiplier if lucky only you will get. From several Free Spins games, not even one 40x bet win I could get. Break Away is yet another Microgaming game I would rather forget!

I cannot say for myself that I am a big fan of hockey but I do love what Microgaming has done when they created this slot. There are some features in this game that are really great addition to it. All of the symbols are made of ice hockey players, referee and gear. This is yet another 243 ways to win so it is easier to win a prize while playing it. I like that this game has rolling reels. This means that the symbols will crumble and move down allowing you to hit a winning combination. There are wilds on the second, third and the fourth reel. This way you get more chances to land some good symbols with a combination with wilds.

There is also another feature which is called the Smashing Wild and it appears during the base game. Some players smash into a reel and they turn the symbol into wild. This feature is again available on the second, third and fourth reel.

And, there is also my favourite feature in Break Away and that is the free spins round. As soon as I started playing the game I got 15 free spins. During the free spins round the reels change into blue. I got 31.52 win the first time I triggered the first spins. I won 25.60 next time and this time I also got three scatters during the free spins but unfortunately you cannot retrigger them. I cannot say that I had a huge win during the free spins round but I had some wins from time to time. During the free spins, the rolling reels are possible too, but unfortunately I was not that lucky. What I like about this game is that there are small wins that keep your balance on a decent level and for that reason this is a game that I would gladly play again.

Break Away it is game made by Microgaming. I am not like sports themed slots too much to play such games usually, but of course I tried this game. Also recent rugby star is almost same as break away slot.

I like how this game looks. I did not like hockey and have zero knowledge about it, but I like that symbols here looks great, lot of colors.

I like that there is 243 lines, and stacked wilds on reels 3 4 5. Also wild could appear on reel 2 in special feature.

I like smashing wild feature. It is can trigger any random spin during normal play. During this feature it will make on of reels wild, but not first.

I like that there is avalanche system. Winning symbols pays, and disappear and from top you got new symbols. And since on reels 3 4 5 wilds are stacked a lot, you can get a lot of winning avalanche spins. A bit bad that there is no multiplier in normal play for it.

I like freespins feature. It is can be triggered when 3 or more scatters appear on reels. It awards from 15 freespins with rolling reels (like in immortal romance and thunderstruck II). It means that avalanche system will have multiplier during freespins, up to 10x.

I like this game. It is interesting to play, but I just not ready to play it a lot, very fast it starts to be boring for me. So usually after catching freespins or win more than 50 bets I just leave this game alone. I never had more than 100 bets wins in this game, but it is possible, especially during freespins. Normal play usually pays good with 30-50 bets wins in short amount of spins, but after such lucky streak I am usually just leave game.

DISLIKED

I could thumbs down only low payouts and took one star for that.
