Here is from Microgaming's press release:

Break Away is an adrenaline fuelled hybrid style 5 reel, 243 ways to win, video slot that puts players right in to the midst of a thrilling ice hockey game. Players must take to the ice to smash, crash and compete their way to big cash prizes and sporting glory.

Break Away immerses players into the rush and excitement of roaring crowds watching ice hockey, enhanced by Microgaming’s breath-taking graphics and booming sound effects. As well as intricately designed rink layouts, this new slot is packed with exciting wilds, scatters and bonuses. Players will come face-to-face with aggressive defenders and machines, delivering rewarding opportunities.

Break Away will be available on Microgaming’s Viper and Flash platforms.


Octopays is the latest major 5 reel, 243 ways to win, addition to the Microgaming portfolio. This captivating ocean themed slot allows players to dive into a colourful, adventurous and treasure filled environment.

Players are plunged into the deep depths of the oceans to hunt their way through sunken ships, colourful reels and rusted anchors to discover their hidden treasures.

Gamers must find the baby octopus symbol, which will trigger Kraken, the mythical sea monster. Kraken will arm them with free spins, bonuses and a guide to the big rewards. Kraken is joined by a colourful cast, including the slippery Moray Eel, who will double any win when he appears from his deep dark cave.

As soon as players dip their toes into the water, they will be transfixed by this outstanding new slot.
Octopays will be available on Microgaming’s Viper and Flash platforms.


Western Frontier is a new 5 reel, 15 line cowboy themed slot that transports players into the heart of the Wild Wild West. Players will be taken on the ride of their life as they find themselves thrown right into the middle of an exciting world of big wagons, big chiefs and even bigger prizes.

Players should be prepared for plenty of action when they mosey into the two-stage Cowboy and Indian themed free games bonus feature. During the Indian stage, players will collect wild symbols to increase the multiplier and free spins for the Cowboy stage. All wild wins during the Indian feature are doubled. In addition to this, at the end of the free games bonus feature or any base game win, winnings can be doubled or quadrupled in the gamble feature.

Players will marvel at the exceptional colourful animation and thrilling sound effects as they seek their fortune in this brave new Western Frontier slot.

Tried Breakaway in real play yesterday, like most 243 way slots chances of big hit are there, got 2 bonus rounds in 100 spins paid about 25x the bet each time, busted out in the end figure i try Octopay in fun mode, also got 2 bonus rounds in about 100 spins there, but the diffrent was it paid 60x and 180x the bet, but for some reason i liked Breakaway better :)

I tried these three games over at Jetbull. I think Break Away was interesting. Great theme and I loooove stacked wilds. But not the best looking games around hehe.

Yes the new slots seemed to be mostly 243 type slots. They FORCE you to play all the lines or don't play the slot. I never play all the lines so most of the new slots never see any action from me. Casinos definately make more money on these types of slots. I have boycotted these type of slots and only play where I have a choice of the number of lines. The 243 lined slots are money pits....for the casino.

I will continue to milk my money from the older slots, thank you

Gave Break Away a good test yesterday and it left me gob-smacked, by far the best experience i`ve ever had on a new MGS slot, I was so impressed, after requesting my reversal be flushed I asked Scott what my overall RTP was on it, well over a 1000 spins, a w/r of £600 obliterated, and a nice cash-out...........

Very impressed, but I just know next time I play I wont hit consecutive 3 reels wild etc :(.

Had more luck on octopays than breakaway, despite hitting features 3 times on each.

Breakaway is insanely high variance from what i can tell, wasn't too impressed to start with - 50 spins at 50p biggest win was 12p, then it warmed up a bit, biggest single win being £15ish after 3 bonus rounds,
I'm sure it has great potential but I don't think ill be on it much at 50p play minimum

Octopays more medium variance, more frequent wins and features from the start, bonuses paying average £15-20 (30p play) more likely to come back to this one in the future I expect.

Overall, yet more 243 way games (sigh) none too forgiving to low bankroll players like myself.
looking forward to seeing a few new 9/15 liners in future mg. (please?)

Breakaway was pretty good to me so far.

Played it the second time today.

Started with 0.50c spins. Feature after 30 spins -> Paid 112 USD
played 1 USD spins. Feature after another 50 spins -> Paid around 60 USD
continued. Feature after 20 spins. Got once up to 5x, paid 332$, lot of good symbols and wilds.

Deposited 25$ at 32red, and now cashed out 500$.

After some dry weeks, i had 2 cashouts at 32red in a week (400$ and 500$). Awesome :)

The nice thing about breakaway is that once you got the wild they're most likely gonna stick there for 3-5 rounds :)! If you get 2 reels wild during freespins, and those 2 reels wild continue for 2x,3x,4x,5x..

Having no luck with Breakaway. It definitely drains your money fast especially at a minimum of 50c bet. The regular spins just do not pay enough. 5 of a kind with one reel wild generated just over 2x bet, with rolling reels rarely lasting more than one fall. Best win came from two reels wild which stuck for two rolls giving a total of 20x bet. I can definitely see big wins if you have more than two wild reels which stick for 4+ rolls with successful combinations, other than the wins would definitely have to come from the free spins (hoping so) which I have yet to hit.

Played Octopays until I got the feature. Got something like 10x stake back, wasn't too impressed since I didn't really see any potential in it.

I was surprised to see more than 2 extra wild octopuses in the vid, personally i have not had more than 2 in about 25 features.

The 2x with the wild eel thing, i dont know if it just only 2x or 2x for each octopus 2x 2x 2x = 8x or 6x

Octopuses or octopi....to-MAY-to, to-MAH-to

Knowing 777 he wasn't on about the "schpelling" but using the chance to say "pussy's" :D


On topic, i liked both slots, definitely saw more potential in break away: it acted like a med variance slot, in that it gave me plenty playtime for my small balance, but the hit potential is huge, so it must be high variance. got a few decent hits, but not yet hit the 100x or higher: will surely pursue that though!
Best new MG slot in a while imo, it really appeals to me:)

I actually got 4 of them but still didn´t manage a big win (of course missed to shoot them when they were in place)
