Do you like online slots and also think the world of ice hockey? Then, Microgaming must have seen fit to treat you to some unforgettable times by making the ice hockey-themed slot that is the Break Away slot.
As to be expected, this slot has enough themed icons to fit out a squad and a nice selection of bonuses that sound like music on ice! Read on for more suitably icy details!
Break Away, Champ And Aim For Glory!
The Break Away slot has five reels and 243 ways to win. The audio here is a fitting, sporty number and the featured icons all have something to do with ice hockey. They comprise skates, an ice re-surfacer, a rink, a face-off, the referee, a helmet, players from both teams and a goaltender.
The special icons comprise the break away wild icon and puck scatter icon. Incidentally, the latter looks like its propelled by flames.
- Smashing Wild Feature - this bonus randomly occurs during the base game. Players are given a hint that it’s happening when the Break Away sign located at the top gets frozen in place. An exciting animation then follows in which a player dashes across the screen, and hits a reel, thereby making it wild.
- Rolling Reels - in this feature, the icons that form winning combos freeze in place and then shatter. More icons that fall into place from above, fill up the vacated positions and hopefully form new wins. This process can go on for long and often results in a long series of wins.
- Break Away Stacked Wilds - The wild icons in the Break Away slot get stacked on the third, fourth and fifth reels. Each of the reels has a different amount of wilds. Thus:
- Reel three = 18 stacked wilds
- Reel four = 25 stacked symbols
- Reel 5 = 3 stacked symbols
- Free Spins With Rolling Reels - getting 3, 4 or 5 of the puck icon that acts as the scatter leads to the award of 15, 20 or 25 free spins respectively. During these spins, the rolling reels feature is fully active and is capable of massively racking up the winning potential.
Also, during the free spins bonus, consecutive wins that feature the rolling reels has the multiplier value boosted by 1, with the maximum being 6x. When no successive wins have been formed, the multiplier value resets to 1x.
The Break Away slot appears to be more action-packed than most NHL finals, has audio effects that punch like a heavyweight and bonus features that are more or less easily triggered.
