New Slot: Crazy Pop (NextGen)
The new slot Crazy Pop is powered by NextGen in collaboration with GamesLab. The two providers has been relatively quiet this year and the new game is the first title they release in a long while. Crazy Pop is not yet available on most major casinos, and we expect it soon to be accessible on sites like LeoVegas or Casumo.
Crazy Pop is a 5 reels and 50 paylines slot available on desktop, tablet, as well as most other mobile devices. The min and max bets players can lay – range from 0.50 to 15, depending on the currency played. The game has a sugar theme with sweets and candies floating on an underwater background.
The symbols on the reels all relate to the theme and feature colorful pieces of candy. The purple candy is the highest value symbols and gives 500 coins if 5 land on a winning line. The scatter symbol is a colorful round candy with the game’s logo on top. The wild symbol is a red square candy piece which can substitute for all other symbols including the scatter. The wild can only land on reel 3 during the base game. Whenever a wild lands on reel 3 it will expand to cover the entire reel. All wins that include the red wild will get a 3x multiplier.
The game has 2 optional features which players can activate and deactivate at any time, during the base game. They are both located on the top of the screen. The features can help increase the winning potential of the spins however they come at a cost.
- Activating Fizzy Bet will add a 6th reel. The new reels features multipliers of between 1x and 20x. This will cost double your standard spin.
- Activating Crazy Bet will add a 6th reel as well. This new reel features multipliers between 2x and 100x. However this feature costs 3 times the standard bet.
Players can trigger the free spins by landing 3 scatter symbols consecutively from left to right, starting from reel 1. The wild substitutes for all symbols, so 2 scatters on reels 1 and 2 plus the wild on reel 3 will also trigger the free spins. After landing the scatter the player will have to pick on of them to reveal which free spins option he/she will play. Depending on what the player picks, there are 3 free spins options.
- The Super Sweet option awards 20 free spins. Up to 9 extra wilds are added to the reels on each free spin. These are yellow wilds which can appear on any reel The yellow wilds can not expand. Landing 3 additional scatters during one of the free spins will award 20 more spins.
- The Wild Slide option will award 9 free spins. Whenever a wild lands on this option, it will recreate on 1 or 2 more reels. You can land more free spins here too giving you 18 in total.
- The Wild option will award 7 free spins. During the spins the 3rd reel will be stacked with wild symbols for the duration of the spins. Landing 3 additional scatter will award 7 more spins.
Crazy Pop is a medium low volatility slot with an RTP of 95.08%. However the player can increase the RTP up to 96.02% using the additional bets. The slot has some potential, especially during the free spins, with the 3rd Wild option being the best you can get. Crazy Pop is visually great, with lots of bright colors and a fun soundtrack.
