Crazy Money slot review
From an American team who started out making arcade games in their basement and who later moved on to making land-based machines, Crazy Money is the latest in a line of simple online slots games from Incredible Technologies.
Land-Based vs Online
Adapted from a hugely popular casino slot in the United States, and designed to be "the most understandable 5 reel video slot in existence" (their words), the game has a 'ClearWin' system where the sum of the winning symbols equals the credits won. It is a reasonable transition from the land-based platform to the online domain and it is certainly an online slot that the land-based players will not mind playing.
So, how are the values on this 15 pay-line slot displayed? Well, the clue is in the title. The symbols here are made up of US banknotes with various values - a $1 bill with George Washington on it, an Abraham Lincoln-adorned $5 note, and so on. There are plenty of American coins too, as they will become more useful in the bonus round. In terms of graphics it's pretty simple, as is the music and FX. You could almost be playing a Bally Technologies slot, so familiar are the sound FX and US-accented voice overs; it's a real taste of Vegas overall.
The minimum betting is $0.01, and you can win on the diagonal as well, upping the chances of a hefty win. However, there are some interesting twists to this game. If you're used to the boring old Wilds 'n' scatters type of slot, you're in for a treat.
Win 50x Your Stake with the Vault
When the Vault symbol appears on the reels you'll instantly win, with a maximum payout of 50x the bet-line amount up for grabs. As for the game's bonus, simply collect five coins of different denominations on the reels. Once you've got all five the Money Catch Jackpot Bonus is triggered. Here you're transported to a screen full of flying banknotes (think the end of Crystal Maze or The Cube, but cooler). As money whizzes past click on the notes to grab them. The more you grab, the more you win!
If you've ever been to the US and played Crazy Money, then came home and hankered for a version of the slot on your PC, then this is great news. It's a real slice of Americana in terms of slots games, and if you're in the mood for more cash-related antics, check out Mr. Cash Back, the money-themed slot from Playtech, or Bally's Sin City-themed Big Vegas for more old-school fun.
