Crazy Time Strategy Guide

How to play and win Evolution's Crazy Time

Discover all the top tips to mastering Evolution’s award-winning game show. You don’t need to go crazy to master Crazy Time.

Coming off the immensely successful Dream Catcher, Crazy Time hit the scene from Evolution in 2020 and supercharged the live game show experience. Featuring a real casino dealer and a game show setup including a dazzling wheel of prizes, Crazy Time took the online casino market by storm and bagged Evolution the Innovation in Casino Entertainment at the SBC Awards in 2020.

What is Crazy Time?

The award winning Crazy Time wheel

Crazy Time is a live game show featuring a wheel with 54 segments covering a total of 8 available bets. The game features 4 numbered bets, each with their own number of available spaces and bet payouts, as well as 4 unique bonus games that bring even more excitement to the table.

The game is also further spiced up by including the Top Slot feature where a set of 2 reels are spun to add special win multipliers to numbered bets or upgrade 1 of the 4 available bonus games.

How to Play Crazy Time

Crazy Time is now available in the MrQ live lobby

Looking to join the live casino fun in Crazy Time? Join the excitement with these simple steps:

  1. Select your chip size and place your bets on the 8 available spaces in the betting period
  2. Once the timer expires, the top slot will be spun to reveal 1 of the available bet spaces and a multiplier applied to all wins for the landed space
  3. The wheel is spun and the the winning space is the one visible when the wheel stops
  4. All winnings are paid and multipliers applied where relevant
  5. If a bonus game space is bet on and wins, you are transported to the bonus game and can play for real cash prizes or bet multipliers

How to Win Crazy Time

Crazy Time is won by accurately predicting the space that the wheel will land on at the end of the spin. You can bet on up to 8 spaces with payouts dependent on the space that lands.

The safest bet is on the 1 space as it has the highest number of occurrences on the wheel with 21 and offers the lowest payout of 1:1. The highest numbered payout bet is 10 which pays 10:1 and only has 4 occurrences on the wheel.

That’s not all as, on every round, a reel is spun above the wheel that will reveal 1 of the 8 spaces and a multiplier that is applied to all winning values at the end of the spin. If the multiplier is applied to a bonus game, then the winning values during the bonus game are upgraded by the value of the multiplier. For example:

  • A £5 bet is placed on the 1 space
  • The reel is spun and reveals 1 and a 3x multiplier
  • The wheel is then spun and lands on the 1 space
  • The payout for the win is 1:1 which is £10 x3 which makes a total of £30 returned at the end of the round

Crazy Time Strategies

#1- Bonus Game Bonanza

Everyone loves a bonus game and, with this strategy, that is priority #1. Place bets exclusively on the 4 bonus games at any value to make sure you never miss out when they land. Keep in mind that each bonus game has a different number of available segments on the board meaning you can alter your bet amounts on each bonus game based on the chances of the segment winning. The Coin Flip bonus feature has the most occurrences with 4 while the Crazy Time bonus has just 1 occurrence on the wheel.

#2- Playing it Safe

This strategy has you avoiding the bonus game spaces all together and betting exclusively on the numbered spaces available. This is one of the safest strategies as the numbered spaces occur the most on the wheel with 1 alone making up 21 available segments. In total, the numbered spaces make up 45 of the total 54 available wheel segments meaning the chances of a winning number is pretty high.

#3- Crazy Time Martingale

The Martingale is one of the most popular Roulette Strategies available and it is so popular that a version has been made for Crazy Time. Essentially, you decide on your bets and, for every loss, you keep the same betting behaviour but double the bet values. The idea behind this strategy is that for the amounts you lose, you will recoup the losses when you win.

#4- All In

Can't pick your favourite bet? Place bets on all available spaces to maximise your chances of winning. This strategy also ensures that you always qualify for the bonus games whenever they land. Either set the same value on all spaces or, if you're feeling strategic, mix and match your bet values based on what is winning the most in your current game.

#5- The Match

A variation of the Playing it Safe strategy where you match your bet to the odds of each number available. For example

  • The number 1 has a payout ratio of 1:1
  • You place a £1 bet on 1
  • 2 has a payout ratio of 2:1
  • You place a £2 bet on 1
  • Continue until all numbered spaces are filled win the same style

This strategy is slightly higher risk with payouts being maximised when landing higher valued numbers like 5 or 10.

Crazy Time Bonus Games

Game show thrills are guaranteed with 4 amazing bonuses

As well as the standard bets that award cash prizes, Crazy Time also features 4 unique bonus games that give the chance to win some juicy rewards. Bonus games are activated when they are landed on at the end of the wheel spin.

To qualify for the bonus game, you need to have made a bet on the corresponding bonus game space during the betting phase. If the top slot multiplier is applied to a bonus game, then the multipliers active during the bonus game is upgraded before the game is played.

Top Tips for Crazy Time


Start small- Start with small bets to get a hand of how the game is played and experiment without the risk of losing higher values

Split your bets- Once you feel confident with the basic rules, try splitting your bets across multiple spaces and start placing bets on some of the bonus games

Different bets have different odds- Keep in mind that different bets have different chances of winning. The 1 space has the highest chance of winning as it has the most occurrences on the wheel and the Crazy Time bet has the lowest chance with only 1 space on the wheel.

Multipliers can add bonuses- Keep your eyes peeled on the bonus multipliers for each round as that can increase the total win on a bet or upgrade the values of a bonus game.

Set limits- As with any casino game, setting limits is important in ensuring that the experience is always kept fun. Set limits on your spending to ensure you don’t spend more than you are comfortable with. Check out our extensive range of Safer Gambling Tools for more info.
