Bagging the “Innovation in Casino Entertainment” award at the SBC Awards 2020 for its hit product Crazy Time is Evolution Gaming. The supplier beat 13 other giant brands under the category and joined 800 other well-known sportsbook and casino businesses in a virtual ceremony.
Crazy Time is a multi-layered, bonus-and-multiplier game that was first showcased as Evolution Gaming’s headliner product at ICE 2020. The central mechanic of the game is a spinning money wheel featuring four bonus bet spots: Cash Hunt, Coin Flip, Pachinko, and Crazy Time.
After Crazy Time’s launch, the game immediately garnered positive feedback from players, online casino, and Bitcoin casino operators. By the end of 2020, it was then recognized by the SBC judges for its depth of engagement, production values, and entertainment features. SBC Awards 2020 commended Evolution Gaming for reinventing interactive casino games through Crazy Time.
