Crazy Time – from Evolution – was unveiled in February 2020 at the ICE Exhibition in London. It was a follow-up to the game developer’s highly-successful Monopoly LIVE. Although the addition of special bonus rounds aims to appeal to slot players rather than just those wanting to play live dealer games.
Crazy Time is a live game show on a giant wheel with 54 segments. This wheel has several monetary prizes, worth between 1x and 10x and four unique bonuses and features. Once you load up the game, you will see eight betting options; firstly, you can bet on the four numbers on the wheel. These numbers include one, two, five, and ten. If you bet on a number and the wheel lands on that number, you will win the corresponding prize; for example, a £10 bet on the “5” bet would payout at 5:1.
However, the bonuses and features most players will be looking for include the Cash Hunt, Coin Flip, Pachinko, and Crazy Time bonuses and features. Place a chip on the prize you’d like to wager on. Once you’ve made your bets, a “Top Spin” feature activates. This spins a giant multiplier at the top of the screen. This multiplier can be worth up to 50X and is applied randomly to any of the eight betting options.
The Coin Flip is the most commonly-triggered feature. It’s a simple coin flip, and you’re guaranteed a prize, provided you’ve placed a bet on the corresponding betting option. This bonus round can pay up to 100X without the top multiplier. The Coin Flop bonus round is relatively low variance; it triggers frequently, but big wins are few and far between.
The second bonus round is the Cash Hunt. When activated, you’ll be taken to a shooting gallery with 108 random multipliers. You need to pick one of these using your mouse (or finger if you’re playing from a mobile device), and your prize will be revealed.
Thirdly, there’s the Pachinko bonus round. This requires no intervention from the player; once the bonus round begins, a puck drops into one of 16 drop zones at the bottom of the screen. These zones contain multipliers. You’ll win the multiplier prize wherever the ball lands.
Lastly, there’s the Crazy Time bonus round – and this is, by far, the most lucrative of the four. It’s also the hardest to trigger, with just one wheel segment available to win it. When activated, the presenter will walk through a red door. You then see a giant virtual wheel with 64 segments. You will be prompted to choose one of three flappers – and when the wheel stops, you’ll win the prize that corresponds with the flapper you picked.
Ideally, you want to enter the bonuses and features with a multiplier. For example, if you enter the main Crazy Time bonus round with a 50X multiplier, the minimum win is a whopping 500X!
If you’d like to try Crazy Time, I recommend playing at LeoVegas or Mr Green.
