Crazy Pop is one of the many new slot machines that the NYX Gaming Group releases each year, this time being one of the titles offered through Games Lab. The slot machine has an inspiration that comes from sweets, which will be seen in all kinds of colors or shapes on the reels.
From Crazy Pop’s 5 reels you will get up to 50 combinations formed at a time, since that’s how many active lines are used. There are some unusual features inside, such as the Fizzy Bet and the Crazy Bet, there are additional reels that you can use, there are huge multipliers employed, scatters and a couple of wilds.
Betting and Prizes
There are three separate game modes that the player can be in. The regular bets are going from values of $0.50 to $12.50, using 50 fixed lines and line bets from $0.01 to $0.50. If you want to activate one of the extra bets, then you have to click on the Fizzy Bet or the Crazy Bet logos at the top. The former will double the cost of the initial wager, to $25. The latter will triple it, taking the total to the maximum possible of $37.50.
The game’s top reward, with wild symbols assisting and with the Crazy Bet active and contributing with a 100x multiplier, will reach a value of $150,000, up from the $1,500 which can be offered without any extra bet. The game’s average RTP will vary with the type of bet that you’re placing, but the highest is 96.022% when you’re using the Crazy Bet.
Crazy Pop Slot Features
The two game modes have in common a 6th reel that they give you, on which you will get multipliers to apply to your wins. The Fizzy Bet reel will have multipliers that range from 1x to 20x. The Crazy Bet reel has earned its name, since it offers up to 100x multipliers. None of these multiply the scatter payouts.
The 3rd reel has Red Wilds on it, symbols that substitute for most symbols and which have 3x multipliers to apply to those new combinations.
Scatters have the Crazy Pop logo and they can pay you when appearing up to five times in the game, while also triggering one of three possible features. The initial payout from the scatter symbols can reach a total of 90x total bet.
The first feature is called Super Sweet, and it has 20 free games for you. These have up to 9 extra wilds on their reels.
The Wild Slide feature is the second feature and it has 9 free spins to give you. In it, the Red Wild will replicate to one or two extra reels when it makes an appearance.
It’s Wild is another feature that involves the Red Wild. You are going to get 7 free spins from it, where the Red Wild is going to fully cover the 3rd reel of the slot. This is a feature that can be retriggered.
Theme & Design
I’m not going to be impressed with a game like this, where the graphics are not great and the theme is lacking much imagination. There are other things to like about this game, but the candy theme is not one of them, especially since it’s far from looking as good as the competitors, and it has plenty of those.
Crazy Pop should deliver a good enough experience in some areas, and a great one in others. I enjoyed its features especially and I would recommend you play with the Crazy Bet mode active only, since the highest theoretical RTP comes from it.
