Break Away by Microgaming
Microgaming is releasing sports themed games at such a pace that we feel like everything from badminton to tiddly winks could be represented on the reels in the coming years! Admittedly, ice hockey isn’t quite the most niche sport around depending on where you happen to live, but that’s all by the by as that’s exactly what we’re taking a look at here in the shape of Break Away!
If you’re already a Microgaming fan, and a sports one at that, then you’ll be well aware of the Sports Star series of games comprising the likes of Rugby Star, Cricket Star and Basketball Star and while this game is missing the ‘Star’ part of the name, it still has plenty in common with the main range. For starters, 243 ways to win continue to be in order and you can once again benefit from a diverse range of bonuses and features that cover both the base game and the feature rounds.
Rolling Reels and Stacked Wilds
We’ll kick off with the base game and the first thing you’ll notice when you land a win is that the prize symbols will disappear from the board and be replaced by new ones that drop in from above. If that forms a new win then the process repeats once again and continues to do so until no further prizes are presented on the board. This works incredibly well in conjunction with the wild card as it can appear normally on reels one and two, but also in stacks on three, four and five, constantly dropping and replacing itself as the Rolling Reels wins add up.
Break Away Free Games
The hockey puck is the scatter and three, four or five of them in view on a single spin will award fifteen, twenty or 25 free games respectively. These spins continue to make use of the Rolling Reels too so you’ll effectively be receiving far more than the awarded spins. There’s a second benefit to the game too, as a multiplier meter comes into play with consecutive wins taking it up a notch. This meter can reach an impressive ten times multiplier, so the biggest wins are definitely there for the taking if you can string something impressive together.
Break Away is packed with features and absolutely no shortcuts have been taken when it comes to the mobile version either, so you can hit the ice not only on your computer but also your phone and tablet too. No matter how you play, you’ll be treated to all of the great features noted above and will almost certainly be a shoe in for a big win!
