Playing the Break Away Video Slot
All of the main function buttons needed to play are found below the Break Away online slot reels. View pays is where the rules of the game and the pay table information is found. As all pay lines are active with the 243 ways to win feature, the bets are placed by selecting the coin denomination and the number of coins. A max bet button is however available to automatically bet the maximum amount. The spin button and the auto spin buttons are also below the reels with the auto play button allowing the reels to spin a set number of times.
The Break Away betting range is wide and begins at a denomination of 0.50 and ends with the maximum of 50.00 per spin. Up to 10 coins may be bet per spin with values of the coins bet ranging from 0.01 to 0.10. The red hockey player is the symbol that wins the 5 000 coin jackpot prize. This symbol needs to appear five times on any of the pay lines while the maximum bet is in play for this to happen.
Stacked and Smashing Wild Symbols
Break Away online slot has two different wild features. Firstly, the online slot game’s logo is a stacked wild symbol, which will appear, stacked on reels three, four and five. There are a total of 40 of these symbols in the entire game and each one has the ability to replace any symbol when a winning combination is possible apart from the scatter symbol.
The second wild feature is the smashing wild which is a randomly appearing feature. At any point in the game ice hockey players smash into the second, third or fourth reels which will result in up to three of the smashed reels turning into wild reels.
Scatter Symbols and Free Spins Feature
The Break Away online slot scatter symbols are represented by the hockey puck. Three, four or five of the hockey pucks appearing on the reels pay out scatter wins of 2 500 coins, 25 000 coins and 125 000 coins respectively.
Three, four or five of the hockey pucks also award 15, 20 or 25 free spins when the Break Away free spins bonus round is activated. During the free spins online casino NZD bonus round is when the rolling reels feature kicks in. Any winning combination will ice over and shatter making way for new symbols. This allows a possibility of multiple consecutive winning combinations which each come with multipliers of up to 10x.
