Crazy Time is a new exciting live game from Evolution Gaming, the same company that brought us classics like Dream Catcher and Monopoly Live. Crazy Time is now available in South Africa at various betting sites, with betting stakes starting from as little as R1. We spent some time playing the Crazy Time game to help you get a better understanding of the game mechanics and how to win.
Where to play Crazy Time in South Africa
The Crazy Time Game
The game itself is a lucky wheel based game, set in a beautiful studio with a live presenter. The lucky wheel has 54 segments with the usual betting options on numbers 1, 2, 5 and 10, with the other sections of wheel containing 4 unique bonus games. The Bonus games take up 9 segments of the 54 segment wheel, so they do land fairly often.
The bonus games are what set Crazy Time apart from similar games, with each of them taking place in the live studio. The 4 bonus games are Coin Flip, Cash Hunt, Pachinko and Crazy Time. We’ll be going into more detail on these later, as they’re quick mini games with in the game.
Before the start of each round a bonus multiplier or Top slot is spun and you’ll potentially get a random bonus multiplier on a random number or bonus game. We saw some bonuses applied during our game play and more importantly those numbers did land a good number of times, which makes the game exciting from the start.
If the wheel comes to a stop on a number then bets are paid out and the next round begins, but it’s the bonus rounds that make Crazy Time so much fun;
The Coin Flip game is very simple, a bonus is applied to either side of a red and blue coin. The coin is flipped and the side that wins (faces up) is the what your multiplier is. Coin flip is quick and keeps the action going nicely, with the presenters doing a great job of building the excitement.
The Cash Hunt Bonus game has a wall of 108 random multipliers and are shown in a shooting gallery kinda of fashion. You aim the cannon at the target you believe has the highest valued multiplier and the game begins, revealing the multipliers.
Pachinko sees the presenter drop a puck down a set of pegs with a set of bonus multipliers at the bottom. The game is very entertaining to watch as the puck lights up beautifully and it’s always nice to see a presenter physically interacting with the game.
Crazy Time Bonus Game
The Crazy Time Bonus game is another lucky wheel, you get to choose between 3 coloured pointers on the wheel. Green, Blue and Yellow. The wheel spins and you get the multiplier of the colour you chose, once the wheel stops. The pure spectacle of the bonus round makes it very entertaining to watch and we must say that the animation is on point. It’s also very quick so there’s not too long a wait to get back into the action.
How to win at Crazy Time
As with most lucky wheel games there is no real set Crazy Time strategy but what makes Crazy Time different is that it’s certainly worth backing only the bonus games. They contain some of the highest multipliers available and that’s where the big winnings are to be had. We found ourselves betting almost exclusively on the bonus games due to the returns and the entertainment factor.
Those looking to take a more strategic approach would be interested to know that the theoretical return to player is 96.08%.
Crazy Time is a Winner!
Crazy Time is one of, if not the best, lucky wheel live game games available. It’s much more action packed than the likes of Dream Catcher and Monopoly Live thanks to the frequency of its bonus games. We would also like to point out that over several hours of game play we were always entertained by the hosts.
Their energy is fantastic and the interaction with the audience is fun and not too serious. Evolution Gaming have another winner on their hands and we highly recommend Crazy Time to players who enjoy lucky wheels and bonus games.
