You could watch out for Microgaming’s newest version of its online slots Canada ice hockey game, Break Away Deluxe. This hot, real money hockey action slot is due for release on 23 July 2019, which is the date it will be available to play online in the JackpotCity Casino. So here’s a quick preview of some of the action and slot gameplay features you’ll soon be able to sample for yourself. And if you get your gaming skates on, you could maybe put yourself in pole position for a cool breakaway jackpot.
Slot game layout
You will, of course, have guessed that the Microgaming-designed game environment is an ice hockey stadium, and so the crowd sounds you hear in the background really help to build the atmosphere – just like they do in a real-life NHL shootout encounter. The ice-blue backdrop makes it easy to pick out the hockey-themed symbols you will find on the reels. Naturally, you should look out for battling ice hockey players and referees, as well as skates and helmets, ice resurfacers and some more individual players – experts are suggesting that the one wearing the red jersey is likely to be the most rewarding game option.
Microgaming’s Break Away online casino slot comes with 3 rows and a total of 5 reels. You’ll find this is a high volatility slot with a total hit frequency of 32.16%. During real money gameplay you have a choice of payline options available, all offering a slightly different payout percentages: 18 paylines (RTP 96.18%), 38 paylines (RTP 96.38%), 68 paylines (RTP 96.68%) and a top payout choice available on 88 paylines which comes to an amazing 96.88%.
This ice hockey slot can be played on both fixed-location equipment (e.g. PC) as well as on all kinds of handheld mobile devices (e.g. smartphone, tablet or laptop). The cost for playing on all devices starts from as little as 18p (0.31 CAD) up to a maximum of £44 (76 CAD) per spin.
Special gameplay features
When playing Break Away Deluxe online, make sure you’re ready and paying sharp attention, otherwise you might miss some amazing bonus features. You’ll see various winning combinations appear on your screen. But once that happens, they then simply blow up and disappear. Then, some new symbols will fall onto your screen to replace the ones that have just vanished into the ether.
You’ll find that reels will happily stand still and won’t move until there are no more winning combinations to be had. So then you can go back and spin your reels again. But watch out, because at any moment you may get a hockey guy who suddenly just shows up and crashes onto your second, third or fourth spinning reels. This will turn them Wild.
– The Free Spins feature is triggered by three or more scatters landing during the base game. This feature should occur on average at least once in 139 spins and players can gain a total of 12 free spins.
– The Smashing Wild™ feature is when the hockey players randomly turn up anywhere in your base game. That can turn your reels 2, 3 or 4 Wild and bring you a guaranteed win. When this happens, the reel will then stay wild for all following rolls. This feature will occur on average at least once in 115 spins.
– The popular Rolling Reels™ feature is like the one you find in many other Microgaming slots. So whenever you win, those winning symbols are removed from the reels to be replaced by new symbols. For you, that means a chance to gain an exciting multiple sequence of consecutive wins.
– The Growing Wilds™ Break Away logo is a wild which comes up on reels 3, 4 and 5 in the base game, and on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 in the Free Spins feature. It can also replace any symbol (except the scatter). This feature can be stacked with each stack growing by one wild with every spin.
So if you have enjoyed playing games like the Magic of Sahara Online Slot in JackpotCity’s online casino, then why not grab some authentic NHL real money action by giving Microgaming’s classic Break Away Deluxe a try too?
