Visually, Break Away Deluxe is rather basic. With a blue backdrop, symbols on the reels include ice resurfacers, skates, helmets, ice rinks, battling ice hockey players, referees and 3 more players. The one with the red jersey is the most rewarding.

The Break Away Deluxe logo is the wild and appears only on reels 3, 4 and 5 in the base game and on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 in the Free Spins feature – as well as replacing all symbols bar the scatter, it’s super stacked in both the base game and Free Spins feature. Known as the Growing Wilds feature, each wild stack grows by 1 wild every spin.

Break Away Deluxe uses the popular Rolling Reels feature found in many other Microgaming slots – when you form a win, the winning symbols are removed from the reels to make way for new ones. This gives you the chance for multiple consecutive wins.

To help you win, there’s a randomly triggered Smashing Wild feature. Hockey players will randomly appear in the base game and turn reels 2, 3 or 4 fully wild to guarantee you a winning combination. The wild reel will stay in place for any consecutive rolls.

Then you have the Free Spins feature which is played when you get 3, 4 or 5 flaming ice puck scatters – with 12 free spins awarded, each consecutive roll will see the Multiplier Trail feature come into play which can apply multipliers up to 8x:

  • 1st roll/win: 2x multiplier
  • 2nd roll/win: 3x multiplier
  • 3rd roll/win: 4x multiplier
  • 4th roll/win: 5x multiplier
  • 5th roll/win: 8x multiplier

In effect, you could play a total of 60 free spins as you can get 5 rolls from each free spin – the biggest wins will come the 8x multiplier obviously which can result in payouts 3,181.81 times your total stake on those free spins. Medium variance, the only negative is that you cannot win more free spins as no scatters appear during the free spins.

Break Away Deluxe is a decent slot from Microgaming which has lots of bonus features – the best is the Free Spins feature as it encompasses, the Rolling Reels and Multiplier Trail features for hopefully big payouts. If you like sports themed slots, Yggdrasil Gaming’s Bicicleta (based on football’s bicycle kick) is still my favourite.
