Crazy Time is one of the latest and most popular releases from live casino specialists Evolution Gaming. Launched in 2020, it built upon the wildly successful Dream Catcher concept, using a spinning money wheel to offer gamblers the chance to reap significant gains on their bet.
So what sets Crazy Time slot game apart from its competitors? Well, the fact that the game contains four different bonus rounds, each with its own exciting gameplay, keeps things interesting for punters. Meanwhile, there is the potential in the Crazy Time bonus round to earn up to 25,000 times the original stake, making it one of the most lucrative games out there for lucky players.
If you’re keen to learn how to play Crazy Time yourself, this introductory article will give you a brief rundown of how it all works. The game is incredibly simple, however, so trying it on for size could be the best way to get to grips with things for first-time players.
Like any variation on the money wheel theme, Crazy Time is all about placing bets on which segment of the spinning wheel the pointer will land. For those struggling to conceptualize the game, it may be helpful to think of it as a giant version of roulette with a pointer instead of a ball.
But instead of black, red and green slots to choose from, punters playing Crazy Time can select one of four numbered segments (1, 2, 5 and 10) and/or one of four bonus games (Crazy Time, Pachinko, Cash Hunt and Coin Flip). Of course, there is more money to be won by landing on certain segments over others, so the frequency with which they appear differs, as follows:
- 21 x number 1
- 13 x number 2
- 7 x number 5
- 4 x number 10
- 4 x Coin Flip
- 2 x Cash Hunt
- 2 x Pachinko
- 1 x Crazy Time
At the same time that the money wheel is in motion, the Top Slot multiplier will also spin. This determines a multiplier for a specific number or bonus game and if the wheel and top slot align, all those who wagered on that segment will see their winnings multiplied.
In addition to the main money wheel game, there is an opportunity to enhance your winnings further by landing on a bonus round. It should be noted that only those who have wagered on a bonus round segment are able to participate in the round. The games are as follows:
- Coin Flip. Two sides of a coin carry different multiplier amounts. The coin is flipped by the live dealer and the winnings are multiplied by whichever side it lands on.
- Cash Hunt. Over 100 symbols scroll across the screen (in a similar fashion to a shooting gallery) and the user must “shoot” one of them with their cursor to reveal their prize.
- Pachinko. The live dealer releases a disc at the top of a pachinko wall (featuring a multitude of pegs) and the multiplier upon which the disc lands is applied to the pot.
- Crazy Time. An even larger of the main wheel features three pointers. Players must choose their own pointer and accept the multiplier (up to 20,000x) upon which their chosen pointer lands.
In the last two games, there are also “Double” and “Triple” possibilities, giving players the opportunity to enhance their winnings even further.
And that’s pretty much all you need to know to start spinning the wheel and batting your eyelids at Lady Luck with Crazy Time! Will you walk away with the top prize? There’s only one way to find out.
