#OneSlotADay, BREAK AWAY. Are you ready to become a Hockey star with this great 5 reels and 423 ways to win? The game also comes with stacked wild symbols, free spins, and an intense Smashing Wild feature. Payout:96.42%, Volatility: Medium.
Let’s dive into the head of MicroGaming. You create a game called Rugby Star that does pretty well in certain parts of the world, but in parts where they just don’t like Rugby they avoid the slot entirely. What you do is, you give the same game another look and feel and call it Basketball Star and Cricket Star and Football Star. Great right?! At a certain point, people start to suspect something. So now what you do is that you change the name as well. This is a short history of Break Away Slot aka Hockey Star.
The symbols are quite generic since Microgaming wasn’t to fond about buying licenses of big clubs or players. Break Away Slot is one of the many 243 payline games from Microgaming (like Game of Thrones). The great thing about this game is that you can get a win of 500x your bet on a basic spin. Pretty rad.
Wilds and bonuses
The Wilds are like a feature in itself. There are 40 different wilds, which is well..pretty wild! The Smashing Wild is the wildest of wilds. This sets your entire reel into wilds. There is hardly any room for the scatter symbols, but you will still want those since they give you a bonus game. You can get 15, 20 or 25 free spins. They won’t retrigger, so this is where the magic needs to happen. You can get a multiplier of 10 within this feature, so the possible win on the free spins is quite high. That kind of sums up the game all together: the volatility is quite high, so this is a game for patient players that want to go for the big win.
