Apart from the scatter, the most lucrative of these symbols are the Red-Shirted Player, who pays 300, 1250, and 5000 for three, four and five of the same symbol. The White-Shirted Player who pays 200, 1000, and 2500 for three, four and five matching symbols, and the Goalkeeper, who pays 200, 800, and 2000 for three, four and five-of-a-kind respectively.

The Break Away slot offers players 243 ways-to-win, which means that they award payouts for adjacent symbol combinations running from left to right, except the scatter symbol that pays anyway.

The lowest betting range option is slightly higher than some of Microgaming’s other online video slots at 0.50 while the higher end of the spectrum is slightly lower than average at just 50.00. You can bet with a coin range of 0.01 up to 0.10 and wager up to 10 coins per line.
