Evolution has made its popular “Crazy Time” live game show available in New Jersey, marking the debut of the product in the US. The live game show combines elements of “Wheel of Fortune” and “The Price is Right.”
Evolution, the Sweden-based business-to-business interactive gaming developer that specializes in live dealer games, debuted “Crazy Time” in the Garden State on Tuesday.
“Crazy Time” is Evolution’s number one online live game show in its global operations, and it combines the gameplay of “Wheel of Fortune” and “Price is Right” into a live betting program. The game involves betting on which number the wheel will land on, and players can also participate in a separate side bonus bet game.
“Crazy Time” is a multicamera live game show with a live host. The gameplay centers around a spinning wheel and four interactive bonus games: Cash Hunt, Coin Flip, Pachinko, and Crazy Time Wheel Bonus.
The main game involves bettors placing a bet on one of four numbers: 1, 2 5, or 10. The wheel spins and, if it lands on the player’s corresponding number, they win and their bet is multiplied up to 25x. The multiplier is based on a separate slot spin.
The bonus bet hits when the wheel lands on the player’s chosen game. The bonus round is then initiated, and the player can win up to a staggering 10K times their wager.
New Jersey iGaming Sites
Evolution provides live dealer games for several online casinos operating in New Jersey, including DraftKings Casino, BetMGM Casino, Caesars Palace Online Casino, and BetRivers Casino.
Jacob Claesson, CEO of Evolution North America, said the debut of the live gameshow marked a “landmark launch” for the company.
Claesson added, “Operators and players alike across the world have praised ‘Crazy Time’s’ high production values, commitment to entertainment and depth of engagement, and the sheer fun and enjoyment it offers players. We’re incredibly excited that US players now get to experience a game that has made such an impact in the live casino space.”
Evolution did not confirm if “Crazy Time” would be offered on all of its four partnered iGaming platforms in New Jersey. Emails from Casino.org to Evolution seeking clarity went unanswered.
Live Gaming Expands
Online casino gambling is legal in only six states, including New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Michigan, and Connecticut.
Online slots and table games have brought the casino experience home, allowing players to compete from anywhere they have a secure internet connection. The iGaming platforms have also ventured into innovative products like “Crazy Time” that are not commonly found in the nine brick-and-mortar casinos in Atlantic City.
“‘Crazy Time’s’ bonus games in particular have reinvented the way casino games are played and how they can be enjoyed in a more interactive manner,” Claesson added.
New Jersey is the richest iGaming state in the country, as its online casinos have won more than $1.57 billion from remote players through October.
