Break Away Deluxe Slot Machine
Try Microgaming Slots
Are you an ice hockey fan or a fan of Microgaming’s popular Break Away slot? Either way, you’re in for a treat, as the next generation of Break Away slot is here, the Deluxe version. The action-packed gameplay is fitted to the ice hockey theme and the developer did a great job with the visual representation of the slot.
If you have played the original, then you’re pretty much familiar with the features that will be offered in Break Away Deluxe. You will play through Free Spins, you’ll see Growing Wilds™ and you’ll experience the Rolling Reels™ feature, used in many of Microgaming’s slots. The Smashing Wild™ feature will be present here, as well, giving you some major payouts.
The Wild is the game’s logo, which only appears on the 3rd, 4th and 5th reel during the base game and on all except the 1st reel during the Free Spins. It will replace for symbols bar the Scatter in the creation of winning combos, but it will also appear Super Stacked both in the base and bonus game. The Growing Wilds™ feature here makes each Stack grow by 1 Wild on each spin.
The Rolling Reels™ feature removes symbols from the reels to make room for new ones to appear after a winning spin. This feature improves your chances of hitting multiple consecutive wins.
The Smashing Wild™ feature, on the other hand, will guarantee a winning combo. This is because hockey players will appear in the base game at random and turn the 2nd, 3rd or 4th reel into fully Wild Reels, which will stay like that for consecutive spins.
3 or more Flaming Ice Puck symbols, which are the Scatters, trigger 12 Free Spins. During the Free Spins, the Multiplier Trail feature is active, which can apply Win Multipliers of up to 8x. The Win Multiplier starts at 2x for the 1st win, then grows to 3x for the 2nd win. It continues growing on the 3rd win to 4x, and on the 4th win to 5x. Should you get 5 wins in a row, your Win Multiplier will get up to 8x. This is when the game can deliver a payout of more than 3,000x the stake.
Theme & Design
You should not expect to see a lot in the background, because it is basic, dark blue with light blue details. On the reels, though, you should expect a lot of action.
You will see all kinds of ice rinks, helmets, skates, ice resurfacers, referees and ice hockey players, the one in the red jersey being the highest-paying one. The Wild is the game’s logo, and the Scatter is the enflamed ice puck.
Wagering & Paylines
You can have 18, 38, 68 or 88 paylines active on any spin on the Break Away Deluxe slot, each with a different RTP. For 88 paylines active, you get a betting range from $18.00 to $44.00, and an RTP of 96.88%.
Thanks to all the special features and the Win Multipliers Break Away Deluxe can deliver a $140,000.00 max win. For a relatively small max bet of $44.00, this 3,181.82x the stake payout potential is a great catch for all those low-rollers out there.
Microgaming’s extension of one of its most successful slots turned out to be a great game. Break Away Deluxe pays tribute to its prequel in terms of gameplay, even though each feature is at least a little bit improved. The RTP is perfect, a little above the average, and the $140,000.00 max payout is definitely worth trying the game for. If you're a low-roller looking for your next favourite slot, you should unquestionably check Break Away Deluxe out.
