Big Break slot from Microgaming

Big Break slot from MicrogamingIn 2008 Microgaming created the Big Break slot machine to give us all a break, spending leisure yet gainful time with some unusual friends: Surfing Monkeys. These self-conscious primates have travelled a long way, crossing the globe in search of the perfect wave. So, the colourful group of characters finally found their monkey paradise on some California beach, getting their first big break after all the previous misfortunes (while searching for the lucky place). Now they have the weather, the ocean, the blast. They also have their favourite fruits to nibble and snatch from the standard bananas to more exotic kinds.

The slot comes with a 5x3 playing field, 15 pay lines, and variable payouts right and left from a technical aspect. (‘Free Ride Munky Wax’- Scatter pays left to right, ‘Lucky Break’- Wild pays right to left.) There are also Big Breaks and Free Spins with multipliers to keep the action going. Join these groovy monkeys during their break and see if you can catch a wave of money yourself. We advise you to try the Thunderstruck Wild Lightning slot by Microgaming for free.

This slot has Medium Volatility with an RTP of 95.29%. The RTP doesn't allow obtaining a positive mathematical expectation of winning in the casino. Check it out now for free in the DEMO version on our page.

Personal testers’ opinion

Honestly, this game is all over the place, with many breaks (cracks), all of which are big enough to finally label the slot unremarkable. This slot fails to stand out regarding ensuring fun, excitement, keeping long engagement, providing big payouts, and having generous RTP. Moreover, it is certainly behind the times with its graphics and sound. All in all, the Big Break slot machine is not special enough to deserve long game sessions with real money.
