A sports theme. Multiple special features. Crisp graphics and great game mechanics. High volatility for truly exciting spins. A betting range that will accommodate everyone’s gambling budget with ease. Up to 88 potential paylines. And total compatibility with all desktop and mobile devices.
Sound like a slots title you’d be interested in trying out? Of course it does. And when Microgaming’s Break Away Deluxe goes live on 23 July 2019, you’ll be able to do just that. With the generous bonuses, security and service available at Vegas Palms, this online casino is one of the best places to experience the new game.
Revamping 2012’s Break Away
Break Away Deluxe is actually a relaunch of Microgaming’s popular Break Away slot, which has been rewarding players since 2012. That title also has great payouts and special features so it would be understandable if you were wondering why a new version is being released. After all, if something isn’t broken you don’t need to fix it, right?
Except that players are always looking for newer, bigger and better casino games. That’s understandable – this is your downtime, and you deserve to be thrilled. So, taking a slot that has a proven track record and is known to be popular and making it even better, actually makes complete sense.
A Stormcraft Studios Collaboration
Break Away Deluxe might be a revamped version of an existing title, but Microgaming knew it still needed to have its own features and be entertaining in its own right – it couldn’t feel derivative. Enter Stormcraft Studios, an independent South African developer that was established in 2016.
The fledgling company is known for its highly original releases, which all boast great quality. They have also partnered with Microgaming to release the fantasy-themed Dragon Shard and Agent Jane Blonde Returns. This new take on Agent Jane Blonde, a firm favourite with players around the globe, was clear evidence that Stormcraft was the right brand to give Break Away the Deluxe treatment.
The partnership is actually part of a larger project that sees Microgaming collaborating with the best and brightest fledgling developers in the casino software industry. The situation is mutually beneficial, because the established company gets new game ideas and content while the smaller outfits get the resources, guidance and worldwide distribution that come with being backed by the Microgaming name. Quality, profitable products are rolled out and everybody wins – including, most importantly, the players who get to enjoy them.
Break Away Deluxe Details
So, let’s get down to the specifics, shall we? When you play Break Away Deluxe you can place a minimum bet of 0.18 and a maximum of 44 coins per spin, and the RTP sits at a more than generous 96.88%. There are 5 reels, 3 rows and up to 88 possible paylines. Of these, you can choose to activate 18, 38, 68 or the maximum of 88 paylines when you’re in the mood for full-throttle excitement.
The well-rendered icons on the dark blue reels include players, referees and helmets. The Wild, which appears on reels 2 to 5 in the Bonus Round and 3 to 5 in the base game is the game logo, and the Scatter is, fittingly, an Ice Hockey puck. Fast-paced background music and a host of special features will get your adrenaline pumping even more. You can look forward to Free Spins, Rolling Reels™, Smashing Wilds™, Growing Wilds™, and a Multiplier Trail.
All About the Extra Features
Since both Microgaming and Stormcraft Studios are known for adding creative and rewarding special features to their games, it makes sense that you’d see a lot of these extras in Break Away Deluxe. The details on each feature will show you how beneficial they are:
- Free Spins: When 3 or more puck Scatter Symbols appear anywhere on the reels at the same time, you’ll get no less than 12 Free Spins.
- Rolling Reels™: After each win, all the symbols that were involved disappear to make room for new ones. As well as making the action more visually exciting, Rolling Reels ratchets up your payout possibilities.
- Smashing Wilds™: Smashing Wilds™ is randomly triggered and involves players skating across the screen and turn Reel 2, Reel 3 or Reel 4 completely Wild.
- Growing Wilds™: The Wild can appear stacked in Break Away Deluxe and with Growing Wilds™ another symbol is added to the stack with each spin, until they cover the entire reel.
- Multiplier Trail: Every consecutive win in the Bonus Round increases the multiplier, that is then applied to your total win, by 1x. This continues all the way up to an 8x increase.
Perfect Playing Across Platforms
With Break Away Deluxe Stormcraft and Microgaming wanted to create a new and improved take on the 2012 original. One of their main goals was to ensure that the game would work just as well on tablets and smartphones as it does on desktops, and by optimising mobile compatibility and allowing both portrait and landscape orientation they have achieved this. You get to enjoy great gaming anytime and anywhere – just make sure you are playing at Vegas Palms!
