Break Away is another pokie in a long line of Microgaming sporting pokies, with this one focusing on the fast-paced and brutal game of ice hockey, loved in North America and large parts of Europe. This pokie is available on Jackpot City if you want to try it out for yourself.
There are 243 ways to win on this five reel pokie, and ice hockey fans will recognise names and faces from the biggest league in the US, the NHL. There are also some generic ice hockey symbols, including a puck, a rink and more. You don’t have to like or even understand ice hockey to get something out of this pokie though, as there is a high variance and a couple of big features that all gamblers will enjoy.
Break Away can be played for as little as $0.01 per coin, and you can increase this as you see fit. There is a limit to how many coins you can bet per spin though, and you can not decrease or increase the paylines on this particularly pokie. The highest win on Break Away comes in at an impressive 1.35 million, which is not bad for a non-progressive title.
The main bonus round here is a free spins round, and one that comes with some additional features, including stacked wilds and smashing wilds. These add to the fun, but more importantly they add to your total return, and you can expect an average of around 15x your stake from this round.
Break Away was one of the first Microgaming sporting titles, and it has spawned many more releases since then. This is a fun pokie, but it has a few key features omitted from the later releases. Still, with a big maximum win, some neat features and more, it’s still worth a few plays.
