Step into the spotlight and join live casino fans from around the world in a unique game show from Evolution Gaming. Crazy Time is brighter and bolder than its older sibling Dream Catcher and includes now a Top Slot with prize multipliers as well as four fun bonus games – Cash Hunt, Coin Flip, Pachinko and Crazy Time – that can lead to wins of up to 20,000 times your bet or €500,000, whichever is hit first.
Game Show Details
Crazy Time is a live game show that can be played at most online casinos offering live casino games. It uses a giant prize wheel with 54 sections, split over four different cash prizes and 4 bonus games. A Top Slot with two reels can also award a multiplier for one of the wheel prizes. Wins pay on whichever section the wheel flapper stops on. Betting limits vary for each prize or bonus, starting at 0.10 credits through to upper limits of 2,500, sliding down to 150 credits for the Crazy Time bonus. Playable on desktop, tablet or mobile, Crazy Time is highly volatile with an RTP range between 94.33% – 96.08%, depending on what betting style is used.
Everything is big, bright and fun at the Crazy Time studios with an equally crazy presenter whose purpose is to entertain and explain, much like a game show host. Camera angles change in a quality production while the host interacts with the players and the interface lights up colourful monopoly-styled money during the betting window. Presenters jump to new bonus themed areas like the jam-packed, virtual funfair, with a colossal wheel for the Crazy Time feature. There has been no expense spared for Crazy Time, and it does not fail to impress.
Numbered sections pay directly with their listed numbers – 1 pays 1x, 2 pays 2x, 5 pays 5x and 10 pays 10x. Bonuses games vary in potential, with the Coin Flip capped at 5000x and Pachinko at 10,000x while the Crazy Time bonus game can reach a maximum of 20,000x. Helping you to reach the maximum win potential is the Top Slot which can award prize multipliers of up to x50.
Crazy Time Live Game Show Features
Aside from the glamorous presenters and betting where the wheel flapper stops, Crazy Time has some thrilling tricks to wow its audience. Below, we detail what probably makes Crazy Time the top-performing live casino games, and that by a mile.
A basic game round starts with players placing bets shown on a table with a counter indicating the time left for accepting a bet. Available are bets on stake multipliers – 1x, 2x, 5x or 10x, one or more bonus games, or a combination of both. The odds for the wheel to stop on the usually more lucrative bonus games stand at 1:6.
When the show host spins the giant Crazy Time wheel, a Top Slot with two reels will also spin simultaneously, potentially stopping on a betting option on one reel plus a multiplier on the next. If these align, the multiplier is applied to the betting option, which can be either a number or a bonus game, before the main Crazy Time wheel stops. The RTP values in the table are based on a player placing only a single bet per game round.
|Betting Option||Top Slot Multiplier||Wheel Sections||Payout||RTP|
|Coin Flip||Yes||4||Up to €500,000||95.70%|
|Pachinko||Yes||2||Up to 10,000x or €500K||94.33%|
|Cash Hunt||Yes||2||Up to €500,000||95.27%|
|Crazy Time||Yes||1||Up to 20,000x or €500K||94.41%|
Once the wheel comes to a halt on a section with a number, the game will automatically award wins according to the paytable to players who placed a bet on the winning option. Should it stop on any of the bonus games, then the show host will lead to a separate area for the respective game. There are a total of four bonus games that take the excitement and suspense to a whole new level. In essence, each will multiply your stake, up to a staggering 20,000x or max €500,000. All players can watch the bonus rounds but only those who staked on the option will participate.
Cash Hunt Bonus Game
Cash Hunt is a virtual shooting gallery with 108 random multipliers covered with random symbols. This interactive bonus allows you to aim and shoot the cannon at a symbol of your choice, so each participating player gets their picked win. Should the Top Slot have stopped on the game and a multiplier, then any prizes won from the bonus game will be multiplied by the factor.
Coin Flip Bonus Game
The coin flip machine selects one random multiplier for the red side of the coin and another for blue. The host will then place a colour sided coin into the machine and press a flip switch. The win from the round is the bet multiplier of the colour that landed heads-up. Again, any Top Slot multiplier will multiply the win.
Pachinko Bonus Game
Played on the biggest Pachinko board seen, the host places a puck in the top. It clumsily bounces from peg to peg in true pachinko fashion, finding its way to the bottom where it can land in one of the 16 sections marked with either random bet multipliers or occasionally with ‘Double’. All prizes on display are already multiplied should one have landed on the Top Slot. The ‘Double’ outcome will double all prizes and the host drops the puck again from the top.
The process continues until it either lands on a bet multiplier or the double-up increased the top prize to 10,000x. The ‘Double’ sections are replaced with additional bet multipliers once it reaches the maximum followed by a final drop of the puck. Occasionally, the game will trigger a Rescue Drop if the puck lands in the first round on a multiplier of x2, x3 or x4.
Crazy Time Bonus Game
The main event where prizes can go literally crazy. The round with the most potential sees a giant version of the Crazy Time wheel in a funfair setting, sporting now 64 segments with bet multipliers or double-up and triple-up wedges. Three flappers in blue, green and yellow colours sit at the top and qualifying players will choose one before the host presses the start button. In case you miss the time window, the game will automatically select a random colour for you.
Prizes on the wheel are again already multiplied by any potential factor from the Top Slot. Landing on Double or Triple wedges will see the prizes multiplied followed by another wheel spin for players who selected the right colour. All others will win the bet multiplier that stopped on their flapper. Similar to Pachinko, the wheel spin will be repeated until no flappers land on one of the multiplier wedges and all qualifying players have won a prize. The maximum is capped at 20,000x bet or the usual 500K.
For a decade, Evolution Gaming has been at the forefront of Live Gaming products and are meanwhile gracing online casino lobbies worldwide. Crazy Time was released in 2020 and has enjoyed a booming fan base. It has that 1980’s game show feel to it – big and bold colours, bright lights, big hair and even bigger personalities. The production is brilliant and it certainly has more winning potential than on an 80s TV game show such as Blankety Blank cheque book and pen. Crazy Time is here to stay and instrumental for the future of live gaming.
