Sometimes the question will pop up that makes complete sense – are any new casino games ever invented? This is a very valid question because whenever the everyday player enters their favourite online or brick-and-mortar casino, they tend to stick to slots or roulette games. But coming back to the question, the answer is most definitely yes. There happens to be one casino gaming studio that just so happens to be masters in new game concepts, and that is Evolution Gaming. The new title is called Crazy Time, and it’s a hybrid of roulette and a wheel of fortune. It also happens to be a live casino game, which doubles the thrills it already carries. This is a brand new release, and the full details are still to be revealed, but let’s take you through most of what you’ll need to know.
If you’re a player that likes to avoid detail and a long list of game rules, such as something like poker, then Crazy Time casino game will be just for you. Just to recap, if you don’t know, a live casino game is played behind a digital device. However, the action is carried out by an actual dealer standing in a studio somewhere in the world. Everything comes through a live stream, so the game is 100% real.
Crazy Time sees you looking at a person standing next to a large spinning wheel. The majority of the wheel spindles are made up of numbers – 1, 2, 5 and 10. The numbers come in sequences of 5, with a bonus spindle and then another sequence of 5 numbers. Every sequence of numbers contains more 1s and 2s than 5s and10s. The reason for this is that you need to wager on which number you think the wheel will land on. If you choose the correct number, then your wager will be multiplied by that number. Betting on a one or a two carries a higher win probability, as most of the spokes on the wheel are these numbers. Betting on five or even 10 means less chance of a win. However, the rewards will be substantially higher.
As you can tell, Crazy Time is really easy to play, and there’s a non-stop wheel of thrills. Players who enjoy a few rounds of roulette will definitely like this game, while a lot of the complexities of roulette are removed for a more straight forward experience.
While you have the choice of wagering on four different multiplier amounts, there are also four bonus features that you can wager on. The bonus feature that you’ll have the best chance of landing on the wheel is the Coin Flip, and this is because it is on four spokes. This is a straightforward concept of a bonus feature to understand. There is a multiplier on one side of the coin, and you’ll need to flip the coin to get the multiplier.
The Cash Hunt! Bonus is on two spokes, and takes you to a screen full of multipliers. These numbers then become icons that are shuffled around and means you have to choose the icon you want that reveals a multiplier. The Pachinko bonus can also be found on two spokes, and this one sees a selection of cash prizes lying at the bottom of the screen. A ball will then drop towards these prizes, bouncing around until it comes to rest on one of the prizes.
The last and most profitable of all the bonus features is the Crazy Time bonus. This is the hardest wager to land, as there is only one spoke that lends itself to the Crazy Time bonus. This bonus takes you to another wheel where 200x your bet is possible.
Crazy Time is available to play right now! It’s straightforward to play and has enough paying potential to keep players entertained and well rewarded. Keep a keen eye out for its imminent release.
