Breakaway Deluxe Slot Review

Breakaway Deluxe Overview

Software giants Microgaming are never tired of re-inventing and re-introducing better online slots into the industry.  This is what they have done with the Breakaway Deluxe Slot, which is a new version of the Breakaway Slot, but the popular ice hockey theme has been is maintained. The new release is loaded with lots of goodies as you have the chance to get an x8 multiplier in the bonus round of free spins. The game is played on 5 reels and 5 rows, and gamers have the freedom to choose 18, 38, 68 or 88 pay lines as they advance in the game. You can start your bet as low as $0.18 up to $44 for every spin.

Game Symbols

On the lower side of the game dashboard, you will notice some ice skates helmet, an ice polishing appliance within an ice hockey pitch. The symbols determine the pay line pattern of the game, which is rather odd because it has a minimum of 88 coins and a maximum of 588 coins. Simply put, that would be x1 to x6.68 your stake if all pay lines are active.

The logo of the game represents the wild symbol. During the base game, the wild symbol will only appear on reels 3, 4, and 5. And during the free spins round, it will appear on reels 2,3,4, and 5. Just like in any slot game, this wild symbol substitutes all other ordinary symbols apart from the scatter symbol and is super-stacked in both the base game and the free spins round. The ice hockey puck is the scatter symbol.

How to Play

Once you log into the game portal, you will realize that this is not the usual slot machine. There are 5×5 reels with several active lines where you have to create the combinations. The site also introduces you to exciting free spins, multipliers, and wilds. What makes this slot stand out from the rest is that it has rolling reels. This means that when you register a win, the winning symbols will be removed to allow you to form new winning combinations. This is a great opportunity to form multiple consecutive wins.

You should definitely seek to utilize the wild symbol which comes fully stacked (Growing Wilds) to help increase your wins. With this feature, each wild stack grows by 1 wild with every spin.

Better yet, there is a random feature known as Smashing Wild which randomly appear in the base game and will transform reels 2, 3,or 4 into wilds creating a highly rewarding combination.

Another bonus feature is the Free Spins which are awarded when you land 3,4,or 5 of the flaming ice puck scatter symbols and you can trigger up to 12 free spins. With 12 free spins, each win/roll is adorned with a Multiplier Trail and can apply up to 8X. Here is a break down

  • 2X multiplier for the first win/roll
  • 3X multiplier for the second win/roll
  • 4X multiplier for the third win/roll
  • 5X multiplier for the fourth win/roll
  • 8X multiplier for the firth win/roll

Ideally, you would have an accumulative 60 free spins since you can get 5 wins from each spin. And if you are lucky enough to maintain the wins up to the 5th win means that with the 8X multiplier, your payout will be up to 3,181.81 times your total stake.
