Casino Game Review: Crazy Time
Crazy Time is a popular and unique live game show from Evolution Gaming. It’s been dubbed the most fun casino game ever and after playing it we can see exactly why.
The colorful studio is home to a ‘game wheel’ that closely resembles the sort of wheel you’d find on Monopoly, Alice in Wonderland and a few other live casino game shows. But that’s where the similarities end. Once the wheel spins, you’ll find out why Crazy Time is such an innovative and exciting addition to the live casino market?
Placing your bets
Before the Crazy Time wheel begins spinning, players must place their bets on which segment the wheel will land on. These segments are a combination of numbers and bonus rounds. You can play Crazy Time form as little as .1, making it accessible for players of all budgets.
Gameplay: The Crazy Time wheel has 54 segments. The numbered segments are valued at 1,2,5 and 10 x stake, plus there are four exciting bonus segments that launch a whole host of fun features - see below.
Once the wheel starts spinning, a secondary mini wheel is also spun and reveals a random multiplier and a segment value, wherever it lands increases the win if the main wheel finishes there. For example, if the multiplier wheel lands on 2 and x5, and the main wheel lands on 2, you win x10 your stake. The highest multiplier is x50.
4 Bonus Features
So far so straightforward, but it’s the Bonus Features on the wheel that are the reason why Crazy Time is such a fun game to play. Crazy Time has a whopping 4 bonus segments you can bet on and win the associated reward if it lands:
Coin Flip: This appears on 4 segments on the wheel and simply involves the presenter pressing a button that flips a huge coin in a box. One side is blue, one side is red. There’s a random multiplier generator above the box. If you qualify for the feature you simply pick red or blue and if the coin lands on your side you get whatever the multiplier reveals times your stake. The multiplier can reveal anything between x2 and x50.
Cash Hunt: There are only two of these on the Crazy Time wheel. This bonus game harks back to a traditional fairground shooting gallery. There’s a grid with 108 symbols, you have to aim a target at one of them and it reveals your prize. All of the prizes are multipliers, with the top one being x500. This is an especially fun game to play as you get to aim and fire the rifle.
Pachinko: Once again, there are two of these on the wheel. Pachinko is the original name of what you probably know as a coin drop. It's a simple looking and extremely large coin drop - it’s essentially a big wall with protruding pins, that a coin travels down. The presenter drops a giant coin, into the wall and it slowly makes its way to the bottom, where a row of multipliers await. All players win the multiplier the coin finishes in. However, one of the slots is a ‘double’, this means all multipliers double and the coin is dropped again. Because of the double segment, the top multiplier you can achieve is x2000.
Crazy Time: This is the big money jackpot game and it only appears once on the wheel. This game involves yet another huge wheel. This one closely resembles the main game wheel and has 66 segments and 3 flappers. Pick your flapper, watch the wheel spin and collect whatever segment your flapper finishes on. There are plenty of big multipliers available up to x200, but the ideal scenario is landing on a double or treble segment. This causes all of the multipliers to increase and you get another free spin.
Where can I play Crazy Time?
Crazy Time has only been available for a year, but already it is available in a huge range of online casinos. The game is currently on offer at popular sites such as Betway, Unibet, Virgin, Paddy Power and Mecca.
Crazy Time is one of the most enjoyable online game shows to play for two main reasons.- the multipliers and bonus features. Having a multiplier in play for every round means you always have a chance to win big, even if you play it safe with short odds bets.
The array of bonus games means there’s always a one in six chance of the wheel landing on one. There is a (albeit unlikely) dream scenario in which you land the x50 multiplier on a Crazy Time bet and hit a few trebles on the Crazy Time wheel. If this happens you win an incredible x160,000 your bet.
As with all of the live wheel games, Crazy Time has a fairly high variance, but the RTP is an above average 96.08% and with so much going on with every spin, Crazy Time offers a unique live casino experience that has an ever growing fan base.
