Ice hockey might not enjoy the same popularity as football, but when it comes to slot games players love it just as much if the software developer paid attention to details. Break Away is Microgaming’s latest release and it couldn’t come at a better moment, with NHL in full swing and European competitions alive and kicking. The thematic slot game is live at Spin Palace and features a string of symbols that are consistent with ice hokey, including masks, ice makers, hokey rings, skates, players and referees.

Payouts are triggered by symbols appearing in winning combinations, and with exactly 243 ways to win players won’t run out of prizes quickly. The wild symbol is depicted by the Break Away logo and there are a total of 40 wild symbols that you can discover on each spin, not to mention that they can appear on the third fourth and fifth reels as stacked symbols.

Microgaming’s popular Smashing Wild feature is also available in Break Away online slot, and the payouts are awarded when two ice hockey players pop up on any of the reels and crash into each other. The animations are teriffic and at the end of the simulations a guaranteed payout will further spice things up. A flaming puck stands for the scatter symbol and three of them are necessary for the scatter payouts to be awarded.

At the same time, they are responsible for triggering the free spin bonus which ranges between 15 and 25 free spins, with multipliers being added to the equation. The Rolling Reels feature is another popular addition to Break Away and its role is to increase the payouts for consecutive free spins. Spin Palace players can wager between one and 10 coins per pay line with the maximum payout possible being the 500 coins for each coin invested.
