Break Away hockey slot – “243 Ways” game with free spins, 125,000-coin jackpot

As of the release of this game, NHL hockey was mired in its second month of a player lockout with exactly zero games of the 2012-13 season played. “So who needs the pros?” sounds the gauntlet thrown by casino software producers Microgaming with its Break Away online slot, a “243 Ways” game.

Forget about the NHL and go visit the internet casino instead: Microgaming invites players to enjoy something more fun in its “243 Ways” online slot Break Away. Naturally, all the expected icons from Canada’s game from referees to Zamboni are herein to capture the feeling of the sport.

Winning combinations are subject to the increasingly popular cascade fashion; all winning symbols are taken off the board with new symbols filling the gaps for multiple wins on a single spin.

The game logo serves as a stacked wild in reels three, four and five to (hopefully) healthily increase wins. Microgaming is very proud of the “Smashing Wild” feature, in which hockey players will randomly crash into reels two, three or four to turn an entire reel wild, thus guaranteeing a winning spin.

The scatter is the flaming hockey puck and you know how it goes with these scatters: Win up to 25 free spins when three or more of these land on a single spin – and five scatters is worth up to an insane 125,000 coins or $12,500. And start Smashing Wild when the reels run. Forget the NHL – hockey was never like this!

A top payout of 125,000 coins is possible in the Break Away hockey-themed online slot game – and this take on The Fastest Game On Earth is an ample substitute for as long as the NHL stays off the ice...
