Turning Sport into a Game with Break Away

Hockey is a great sport. It has everything – two teams, one puck, two goals and a lot of action. Sometimes even too much action. I have to admit I initially started watching hockey for the fights – later I learned to appreciate the game itself, so in time it has become one of my favorite winter sports. Alas, I can’t play it, as my hometown doesn’t have a hockey team. But I watch every game I can, and I often seek out hockey-related games when I need my daily dose. Like Break Away, this excellent hockey-related slot machine I found at the Euro Palace casino.

The Euro Palace casino is one of my favorite gaming destinations, mostly because of its sports themed games. Break Away is one of its older games, a predecessor to its more recent Sports Star series, which has games inspired by football, rugby, cricket and basketball. I can play them free at Euro Palace, or even make them work for me when playing them for real money. When I do, I make good use of the bonuses the Euro Palace casino has for me. I have the opportunity, and I also have peace of mind – Euro Palace is among the safest gaming destinations I can think of. And it also won’t bother me with ads like some social casinos I know.

Break Away online slot, available at Euro Palace, is a slot machine inspired by the greatest game of all, Hockey. Its five reels are filled with symbols related to the game – two attackers and a goaltender, or two players competing for the puck. The rest of the symbols depict a stadium, a helmet, a pair of skates and an ice resurfacer. The Break Away logo acts as a Wild symbol in the game, replacing any other except for the Puck, which has a special role. Wild symbols are stacked, so they assure an even bigger win.

The puck, as I said, has a special role. Whenever three or more of them land on the reels, the game triggered its Free Spins feature. During the feature any symbol involved in a winning combination will disappear from the screen, letting other symbols fall into their place. At the same time the win multiplier increases with each sequential win – it can reach an amazing 10x. The puck can also randomly appear and smash the top side of the game. When this happens, a player or two appear from the right, smashing into one of the reels and turning them into a sticky Wild reel.

Break Away is among the best sports-themed slot machine I’ve ever had the chance to play. And you can play it too, even free of charge, at the Euro Palace Casino.
