One of the Microgaming titles, Big Break online slot appears to be referring to a big wave that’s breaking, the design showing us a tropical island location, with main characters which are monkeys of different types, all sitting next to their surfboards in one of the features. Since this is a monkey and tropical themed slot, fruits aren’t missing, and while there are bananas among them, the others are your usual coconuts, kiwis and so on. You will find only 15 paylines on the 5 reels, and from their wins you can hope to win $10,000. There is a bit of help from the bonus game, the scatters, wilds and multipliers, which are offered inside.
Betting and Prizes
Looking at the bottom row, going from the left side to the right side, you will be able to decide on the coin value ($0.01 - $1), on the number of lines (1-15) and how many coins they should get (1-10 per line). The line wager will be anywhere between $0.01 and $10, with the maximum bet worth $150.
It’s not a game that pays a lot, despite having only 15 lines. You are promised a 1,000x reward from regular symbols, meaning $10,000 cash. The Big Break slot scatter can give you $15,000, but that’s still not high enough.
Big Break Slot Features
Two types of wilds are introduced in Big Break. One has the Big Break logo, the other has a Lucky Break logo. Each one has pros and cons. The Big Break wild is only used to replace Monkey symbols, but it appears on all reels. The Lucky Break wild can only appear on the 5th reel, but it substitutes for all regular symbols, and it applies a 2x multiplier.
The scatter’s image is that of the Munky Wax logo. Should you have enough such symbols present, you get paid up to 100x the wager, and you trigger 15 free spins where Monkeys can pay as scatters on adjacent reels.
Another feature is the one called Surf’s Up. To activate it, you need all five monkey symbols to be present on the reels, in any position, but during the same spin. It’s a bonus game that can pay up to 50x the bet, and where you have to pick the surfer that you prefer. Each one has a different range for the payouts it can offer.
Theme & Design
The theme mixes monkeys with surfing and tropical islands with fruits which are normal for them. It’s a pleasant design, thanks to the use of a funny cartoon style for the drawings. The symbols are of two types, monkeys and fruits.
The mix of the two themes, tropical and monkeys on surfboards, is the unique side of the Big Break slot. It has a good list of features, but it doesn’t pay a lot, and that’s its only major downside as far as I can tell.
