We’ve all wanted to star in a gameshow, and now you have the chance with the fantastic Crazy Time live online gameshow which can be played at some of the best online casinos across the UK.
It takes live casino to a completely new level and below you’ll find all you need to know about the game, including exactly what Crazy Time is, how you play it and where to sign-up and get started!
What is Crazy Time?
Crazy Time is a Wheel of Fortune style game, played in a live studio on a big wheel. Within the game there is a main betting round alongside four bonus rounds - Cash Hunt, Pachinko, Coin Flip and Crazy Time.
The aim of the game is to correctly predict where the number in which the wheel will stop on, while the bonus games offer all manner of excitement and the chance to increase your payouts.
The game is powered by Evolution Gaming and was released in mid-2020.
How To Play Crazy Time
Crazy Time is incredibly simple to play, which is why it’s become so popular with thousands of players globally. We’ve broken down the rules of the main game and bonus rounds below, so you understand every element of this fantastic live casino game.
The Main Game
Around the Crazy Time wheel there are four numbers and the four bonus rounds on the wheel. The aim of the game is to place your bet on the number you think the wheel will land on.
On the wheel you’ll find the numbers 1, 2, 5 and 10 with the payouts varying dependent on how many times the number appears on the wheel. The payouts on Crazy Time are as follows:
|Segment on Wheel||Number of Segments||Payout|
|Pachinko||2||up to £500,000|
|Cash Hunt||2||up to £500,000|
|Coin Flip||4||up to £500,000|
|Crazy Time||1||up to £500,000|
Ahead of every game round, the top slot will spin with the main wheel and generate a multiplier for a random bet spot. This gives you the chance to increase your winnings significantly.
Cash Hunt Bonus Game
This bonus game is in the style of a shooting gallery and has 108 multipliers featured within it. These are hidden and shuffled, with players then selecting a target and unveiling their prize.
Naturally, the aim of the game is to try and find the biggest multiplier, with some huge ones up for grabs.
Coin Flip Bonus Game
As you can probably guess, this bonus game is based upon a flip of coin, with this then determining the multiplier you will receive. Before the coin is flipped, the game will determine two multipliers attached to the red side of the coin and the blue. The coin will then be flipped and you’ll receive whichever it lands.
Pachinko Bonus Game
This features a large Pachinko wall with a number of pegs within it. The presenter of the game will then drop a puck into the wall and the slot it lands in will determine the multiplier you receive. There is also a DOUBLE value. If the puck lands on the DOUBLE, the presenter will drop the puck again and whichever multiplier your puck lands on, it will be doubled. You can enjoy a multiplier up to 10,000x within this game.
Crazy Time Bonus Game
You can win up to 20,000x multiplier in this game and it is played on a big virtual wheel. Players must select either a yellow, blue or green flapper and where the flapper lands once the wheel has stopped spinning, is the multiplier you will win.
There are DOUBLE and TREBLE within this, which works in the same way as in the Pachinko bonus, with the wheel then spun again.
Where To Play Crazy Time?
Many of the best online casinos across the UK offer Crazy Time, with Evolution Gaming one of the most trusted games providers in the business.
Best Strategy & Tricks
Most people wonder if there is an optimal playing strategy they can use to play live Crazy Time.
Crazy Time is undoubtedly about the bonus rounds. In order to have good profits, you must certainly bet on the bonus-round positions on the betting grid.
Should you always bet on "value numbers" - such as 1, 2, 5, 10 - there is no chance you can be a winner in the long period. The odds and the payout table are against you.
If you stake £1 on the number 1 for 54 spins, you will win £42 on average, with a loss of £12.
Similarly, you will lose £15 if you bet on "number 2", £12 if you bet on "number 5" and £10 if you bet on number 10.
Of course, multipliers change this profit/loss analysis so a good strategy could be bet on two numbers and two/three bonuses in order to cover eventual losses as much as we can and maximise winnings.
- A good betting pattern we have personally tested is the following:
- 5 Units staked on number 1 – 1/1 Pays
- 3 Units staked on number 10 – 10/1 Pays
- 2 Units staked on Coin Flip – 4 sections on the wheel
- 2 Units staked on Cash hunt / or Pachinko – 2 sections on the wheel
- 1 Unit staked on Crazy Time – 1 section on the wheel
And don't forget the laws of probability. If a bonus hasn’t occurred during say the last 10 spins, then there is a greater chance it will hit in the next spins. So timing your bets and modifying your stake accordingly could be the winning factor in thus game (as it also happens in Monopoly Live).
