The Break Away online pokie from Microgaming first appeared online back in October 2012 and Australian players can now find this in almost every Microgaming powered casino. It’s possible to play on this game for real cash prizes in the real money mode, or just for fun in the practice mode. You can launch this game across Microgaming’s Flash, download and Quickfire platforms, it has 5 reels and 243 ways to win per spin and the wide betting range caters to low rollers, mid rollers and high rollers alike.
The Wild Symbol on this pokie is the Break Away Logo and this can appear stacked to fill an entire reel from top to bottom when landing on reels 2, 3 and 4 (the three middle reels). It is possible to have up to as many as 40 Wild Symbols on the reels at any one time and when this happens, the payouts are generally quite huge. The other special symbol to keep an eye out for on this pokie is the Hockey Puck Scatter Symbol and the only symbol that the Wild Symbol will NOT substitute is the Scatter Symbol. The highest valued symbol available on this pokie is the Scatter Symbol.
This game also has the popular Rolling Reels™ feature from Microgaming and this can basically award multiple wins from just one spin. Whenever a line win does occur, a prize will be awarded and those winning symbols will instantly disappear from view. Even more new symbols will now drop down from above to fill the empty positions below and this can trigger another line win. This will continue to happen until there are no more new line wins in view.
The main Bonus Feature on this slot is a Free Spins Bonus Round and this will instantly trigger when three or more of the Hockey Puck Scatter Symbols land in any position across any of the reels. 3 Scatter Symbols appearing anywhere in view will trigger 15 Free Spins, 4 Scatter Symbols appearing anywhere in view will trigger 20 Free Spins and 5 Scatter Symbols appearing anywhere in view will trigger a maximum of 25 Free Spins. During the Free Spins Bonus, Rolling Reels™ can boost your prize by up to 10X.
The other notable feature available on this pokie is the Smashing Wild™ Feature and this can only ever trigger randomly. Once triggered, Hockey Players will appear on the screen and crash into reels 2, 3 or 4, turning one of the reels in to a completely Wild Reel. This feature guarantees a line win each time it triggers. The Rolling Reels™ feature is NOT active during the Smashing Wild™ Feature.
The Break Away pokie is one of Microgaming’s most famous titles and its wide betting range lets you place a bet anywhere from AU$0.50 up to as much as AU$50.00 coins per spin. This slot has an exciting game theme and the potential to win some really big prizes is there thanks to the Rolling Reels™ feature and the Stacked Wild Symbols.
