Break Away Deluxe Slot Review – StormCraft Studios
One provider who has gone quiet is Microgaming, they seem to have stood back in the casino industry. Instead of releasing their own games, they tend to help smaller studios on new releases. But not all of these releases have been good, some were complete fails which reflected badly on the provider. One factor that keeps the provider relevant in the industry, is their smaller studio ‘Stormcraft studios’. This studio was created in 2018 by Microgaming and the studio has produced some insanely high-quality games. Including a sequel for an old Microgaming slot titled ‘Agent Jane Blonde Returns‘. The last game i reviewed by Stormcraft was titled ‘Dragon Shard‘, which seemed to copy the style of their first release which was a disappointment. But now we have a new release by Stormcraft Studios, this slot is titled ‘Break Away Deluxe‘ and available across all sites now.
This slot is a sequel to 2012 Microgaming release ‘Break Away’, this new sequel looks identical to the original in terms of the art style but with newly updated graphics. Visually the slot does not disappoint, but a nice background image would have been a nice touch.
Break Away Deluxe has a setup of 5 reels by 5 rows, this includes 18-88 set pay lines. This slot is a medium variance due to the max win of 3,200x and set RTP of 96.88. You can bet from £0.18-£44. This slot has cascading symbols, so when a win occurs the symbols part of this win will explode and new symbols will fall into place. This can happen an infinite number of times within one spin, as long as symbols keep matching.

One feature you will benefit from in the base game is called ‘ Smashing Wild‘. Hockey Players can randomly appear in the base game and turn reel 2,3 or 4 fully wild. This gives a guaranteed win and the reel will stay wild for all subsequent rolls.
Central to Break Away Deluxe is the free spins feature, this is activated when you land 3 or more scatter symbols. This will award 12 free spins, during spins you will benefit from a growing wild and a multiplier trail. The win multiplier increases with each consecutive win during the same spin.

- 1 Win = 2x
- 2 Wins = 3x
- 3 wins = 4x

- 5 Wins = 8x
Overall, I do think this is a great sequel. However, the volatility could be improved in this game. The max win could be higher , especially with all the wilds and multipliers included in features. Be sure to try the game out for yourself and check out our exclusive casino offers.
