How to Play Crazy Time in South Africa | Betting Tips & Winning Strategies
Crazy Time is a live casino game show by Evolution with a money wheel similar to Dream Catcher. Part of what makes Crazy Time so enjoyable to play is the charming hosts and the colourful studio environment, which is totally out of this world. Playing Crazy Time for the first time, it feels like you've just walked onto the set of a Willy Wonka movie!
Stay with us to find out how and where to play Crazy Time, the fun money-wheel game everyone's talking about. You'll also get betting tips and strategies to help you win!
How to play Crazy Time
The Crazy Time money wheel is divided into 54 segments which comprise numbers 1, 2, 5 and 10 as well as 4 different bonus rounds. In each round, you must bet to predict where you think the wheel will stop. You'll have 13 seconds to place your bets and then it's time for the crazy fun to begin!
At the same time as spinning the wheel, your host will also spin a 2-reel top slot, which can help you win multipliers for the main round. For a top slot spin to be activated, both reels must line up horizontally (if the right reel falls between two multipliers it doesn't count). If successful, the multiplier on the right reel gets applied to the number or bonus round on the left reel.
Your host will keep you entertained with banter while you wait for the Crazy Time wheel to stop spinning. If the wheel stops on any of the numbers or bonus rounds you bet on, you'll receive your cash payout immediately. Then your host will congratulate the winners and the next round of Crazy Time begins.
How the Crazy Time bonus rounds work
Of the 54 segments on the Crazy Time wheel, 9 of them are bonus rounds. These include Coin Flip, Cash Hunt, Pachinko and Crazy Time. If the wheel stops on a bonus round, players who placed a bet on that segment will enter a separate game where they can win more money.
Coin Flip (3 segments - 5.56% chance)
A random multiplier is assigned to both the red and blue sides of a coin. The machine flips the coin and whichever side is facing upwards is the number by which your bet is multiplied. If the multiplier is very low, sometimes a 'rescue flip' occurs where the coin is flipped again.
Cash Hunt (2 segments - 3.70% chance)
Use your finger or mouse to shoot at random multipliers scrolling across the screen. The multipliers are covered by different objects, so you don't know what they are. You must find the biggest multiplier you can before the time is up.
Pachinko (2 segments - 3.70% chance)
Based on an old Japanese game involving a puck and a wall of pegs, this Crazy Time bonus round is a lot of fun! Your host will climb a ladder and drop the puck onto the wall from a random drop zone. The puck will work its way down before resting on one of the multipliers at the bottom.
Crazy Time (1 segment - 1.85% chance)
As you might've guessed, this is the best bonus round in the game. Start by choosing 1 of 3 flappers (blue, green or yellow) at the top of the wheel. The wheel will spin and wherever it stops, you'll get the multiplier associated with your colour. If the wheel stops on a Double or a Triple, the wheel will be spun again until it stops on a multiplier segment.
Crazy Time Odds and Payouts
So how much can you win playing Crazy Time? The payout structure is quite simple, but when multipliers come into play these odds and payouts will change accordingly.
|Coin Flip||up to R5 million|
|Pachinko||up to R5 million|
|Cash Hunt||up to R5 million|
|Crazy Time||up to R5 million|
Crazy Time Tips and Strategies
Which of these Crazy Time tips and strategies you choose to use will depend on your approach to the game. Seeing that the bonus rounds are where the real money is made, you might want to focus your bets on these. But picking a regularly occurring number like 1 or 2 can help you win less more often, and is another good strategy you can use.
💡 Bet on 1 and 10
Betting on the number 1, the most common segment on the wheel, will help you win nearly 40% of the time on average. A good way to boost your wins though is to also bet on the number 10 at the same time. We like the number 1 because it appears alongside every bonus segment (sometimes on both sides) and often next to the number 10 which helps you cover big areas of the Crazy Time wheel.
💡 Play numbers and bonus rounds together
On average, a bonus round should come up about every 6th spin, but there's no guarantee, so be patient. To keep your balance up, bet half your stake on a bonus round and the other half on number 1 or number 2. Your wins on number 1 will cover your bets on the bonus rounds and you'll even make some profit when the wheel stops at number 2.
💡 Time your bonus round bets carefully
If a bonus round hasn't come in the last 10 spins, there's a greater chance of it happening in the next spin. Again, you can't be sure if a bonus round is coming soon, but the game can only go on for so long without one!
💡 Select one bonus round and stick with it
While it's tempting to place bets on all the bonus rounds, it's not a good strategy. Your chances of getting a bonus round are better, but your stakes will probably be too small to make the most of it when it comes. It's much better to choose just one bonus round and bet on it for a few spins at a time.
