Big Break is all about having fun at the beach, the game sporting a tropical island inspired design, which was created by Microgaming. The unusual part about it is that the main characters are all monkeys of different types, but they’re surfing and enjoying fruit, just like humans would in such a setting. The cartoon like design works quite well for this game, which gives you 15 paylines and can pay $10,000.
Betting & Jackpots
Starting from the left side of the options area, you will get a chance to change how much a coin is worth, how many lines are active and how many coins each one gets. The maximum number of coins per line is 10, so with 15 lines you can use bets of 150 coins. The denomination will start at $0.01 and go as high as $0.50, which would turn the line bet into a $5 value, while the total would be at $75.
At 2,000x the line bet, the big payout is not exactly huge in Big Break. You can get 20,000 coins from it, valued at $10,000. It’s a prize that is considered rather low for such a game, with 15 lines.
The Lucky Break Logo is the wild symbol which can also apply a 2x multiplier to the wins that you get with its assistance. It will double the prizes which are obtained after it substitutes for another symbol, and that’s the way to get the top prize to 2,000x, otherwise going up to 1,000x only. The downside of this symbol is that only the 5th reel can get it, and that it can only help out with combinations which form from right to left.
The other wild symbol in use here is the one with a Big Break Logo on it, but this one, while not limited to a single reel, will be used as a wild only for Monkey symbols, and it will not apply any multipliers.
The Munky Wax Logo is another symbol to watch out for. A scatter symbol, it appears two to five times and awards payouts of 2x to 100x the bet, or it shows up three to five times in random positions, and it triggers the 15 free spins for you. The monkey symbols are scatters in the free spins, and they pay when they appear on the reels going from left to right.
If you get all five types of monkeys on the reels, in any position, you can trigger a feature called Surf’s Up. You have to stop a surfer, and you get a prize that can go as high as 50x the bet.
I think you will enjoy the game, especially its tropical island inspiration, and the monkey characters are very well drawn. It’s a good looking slot machine, no question about that, so this part at least you can be sure that you will enjoy.
Big Break doesn’t have a very big prize, and I think that’s its biggest downside, but it makes up for it somewhat with its many features.
