Ice Hockey is without doubt one of the most popular sports in North America, along with parts of Europe. Now, with the fantastic slot Break Away from Microgaming you get the chance to take to the ice and try to get your hands on Stanley Cup sized prizes. This all action, dangerous and super fast games is captured well in this slot and enhanced with great graphics and an awesome sound track. All symbols are related to the game and a great job has been done crafting the hockey rink, mask and skates, however the symbols you want to be seeing are the players and the referee as these hold the key to the prizes. All symbols are animated further bringing to life this great game.
Break away has some extremely cool and lucrative features, one of them being the 243 ways to win. The animations are nice after a win is paid as all symbols break off from the reels and disappear to be replaced by new ones, and you they bring in another win then it all happens again. The Break Away logo is the Wild Symbol and of course will help you create those all important winning lines, and to add a little something special to the wild, it can appear stacked on reels 3, 4, and 5. There is also something called the Smashing Wild feature where 2 players will randomly smash into each other turning one of the central 3 reels into a stacked wild. The scatter symbol comes in the form of a flaming puck and three of these gives you not only a nice payout but will trigger the free spins. Three scatters give you 15 spins, four will give you 20 and all five gives you a whopping 25 freebies. Attached to the free spins is a multiplier which gives you x1 on the first win, x2 on the second and just keeps going all the way up to a x10 multiplier. Sadly the free spins cannot be reactivated. In summary it's a great new slot and Break Away, even if you are not an ice hockey fan has more than enough to keep you occupied.
