Game Features

The Wild symbol, which can be paired with other symbols to make a winning combination, is represented by the Break Away logo. Keep an eye out for these as they also trigger Smashing Wilds and Stacked Wilds – powered up combos which reward you with extra Wilds and MegaWilds respectively. The developers have really gone all out to make these extra features as exciting as possible, as you we experienced in the gameplay.

Oh, and did we mention that every time you win the reels roll down in the “rolling wheel” feature, meaning that you have the chance to win again? No? Well, they do. Unlike other slot games, the rolling wheel feature is active during the entirety of the game, and not just during the special bonus rounds. That's the kind of thing we love about games like this, you end up feeling one rush after another, almost like a hockey game!

Additionally, the puck symbol, which acts as a Scatter, comes with more special features than you might expect from a regular slot. Other than the usual benefits of the Scatter symbol, you will also enjoy the double payout feature if two Scatters turn up on your screen, and if you are lucky enough to have three or more then the amazing bonus round is triggered. When this happens, pay attention, because this is where you can really start to rake in the cash.

Bonus Round

The adrenaline filled bonus round will certainly have hockey fans on the edge of their seats. Similar to the other Microgaming slots, if you are entered into this round you receive 25 free spins. On top of that, there's also the chance of getting up to 10 times multipliers on your wins. We never quite reached ten but did have a few 3 times multipliers, which definitely made a big boost to our bankroll. Especially as the rolling reels were still in effect! You can really rack up a tidy sum in this round, so make sure that you make the most of it.

Our Concluding Thoughts on Break Away

This game is for people who love to win consistently, and gain money relatively slowly in the casino. There's no big, towering jackpot to speak of, though the wins do get very high, peaking at 2,000 times your original bet. While, that amount of money will never compete with the large area progressives that some slots offer, you certainly have more chance of walking away with more money than you started, here. All in all, we found the game experience a completely thrilling ride. We couldn't get enough, but unfortunately we had to drag ourselves away to write this review!
