How to play Break Away mobile slot

Take to the ice and watch these five reels explode in this action-packed Break Away mobile slot.

Fans of Ice Hockey, rejoice! You finally have a slot machine with all the energy, action and vibrant sound effects to make you feel like you’re in a cold stadium filled with warriors on skates.

This is for fans of hockey, and fans of 243 ways to win slots similar to Cricket Star and Football Star by the same provider.

In fact, it’s not so much similar as exactly the same. Trust good old Microgaming to use the same maths and features and put a new theme, all in the hope we wouldn’t notice.

That said, Break Away slot is a wild ride

There is a lot here to enjoy. It has cascading reels in the base game, meaning on each win, the symbols shatter in an explosion of ice, and more slot symbols fall from above, giving you a mini free spin at no extra cost to you.

And the wins come pretty fast and furious as you get stacked wilds on reels 3, 4 and 5, allowing for wins that keep your budget steady, if not exactly full.

Add a random guaranteed win with a randomly triggered stacked wild feature, and you’d think we have nothing to complain about.

Boring base game, awesome free spins

We are usually bigger fans of Microgaming games that allow you to have big wins at any point during the game – though we will allow that most of the time the really big wins hide in the free spins.

With the BreakAway mobile slot game, the big wins are pretty much only in the free spins. That’s because you get a series of increasing multipliers up to a very interesting 10x your win.

So the hope for something exciting is there, but much like your favourite team never quite managing to get that break away goal to win the Stanley Cup, you can get frustrated as the cascade of wins never progress much beyond a 3x multiplier.

Still, we’ve had some decent 70 times our bet wins in this Break Away video slot, and in the free spins at least, you can get over 2,000 times your bet.

We are just not big enough fans of hockey that we are likely to pick this over say, the Cool Wolf slot game, which is identical but with a far more tongue-in-cheek theme.

Bonus Features

Stacked Wilds: The Break Away slot logo is wild and replaces all other symbols except the scatter. It comes stacked on reel 3, 4 and 5.

Cascading Reels: Every time you get a win on screen, those symbols will explode, and more will come tumbling down from above. Also known as collapsing reels or tumbling reels (for obvious reasons). Microgaming call them Rolling Reels for less obvious ones.

Free Spins: Get 3, 4 or 5 hockey puck scatters and you'll win 15, 20 or 25 free spins.

Which is actually really generous as the cascading reels are in full effect, turning 15 free spins into at least 20 if not 30 chances to gets wins.

Add that you have an increasing multiplier on each cascade of win of 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x to 10x and there is a hope for a break away generous win.

Break Away Review Conclusion

This Break Away mobile slot machine won't change your life, but it might make you a fan of hockey if those stacked wilds line up just right in the free spins round.

However, if cascading symbols are what you want, then this is a far cry from NetEnt's Gonzo's Quest as the wins always feel just a little too far away.

But hey - never underestimate an underdog. One day one of you will come back to us with a screenshot of a break away win that will have us eat our words.
