About Crazy Fresh
NOTE: This review refers to an old version of Crazy Fresh that is no longer available. New information about the new version will appear here in due course.
Crazy Fresh from Yggdrasil is due to hit the casinos at the end of July 2020. The slot has an RTP of 96.34%, a $0.15 minimum bet and a medium volatility rating, so all player can enjoy this steady game and expect a potentially well-balanced frequency of payouts for their bets.
You’ll find 5 reels with 3 rows of symbols and 15 paylines, along with an Australian outback setting, including a tribal character standing on the left of the reels complete with body paint and leaf skirt. The imagery is colourful and detailed, making this visually appealing and enticing to play.
There are some good bonus features here too, including 2 Wilds, a Cocktail Free Spins round and Boomerang Re-spins, in addition to Progressive Multipliers. The top award of 25,000x your bet is also an exciting prospect if you’re lucky enough with your Multipliers and Re-spins.
Symbols and Paytable
The two main characters in Crazy Fresh include a tribal woman holding a coconut cocktail, a tribal man holding a boomerang and a number of native animals. The man and woman are both Wild symbols and can pay 66x your bet for 5 matches. They also play an important part in the bonus features.
The animal symbols include a kangaroo, lizard, turtles and koala bear and these can award the medium payouts with 16x to 20x your bet available for 5 matches. The lowest paying symbols in the game are from the high card symbols with fruits and flowers.
There is also a Bonus Reel that can be activated during the Boomerang Re-spins, which can fill with fruit and offer more opportunities to increase your payouts with Multipliers and additional Free Spins available.
Gameplay and Features
There are 2 Wilds in Crazy Fresh – the woman holding the coconut cocktail and the man holding the boomerang. This man is the same native character standing by the side of the reels during the main game. These can both substitute for all the other symbols to create more winning combinations. The Wilds also play a part in the Re-spins and Free Spins bonus features.
Boomerang Re-spins with Progressive Multipliers
The Re-spins are triggered whenever you land a winning spin including the tribal man Wild on the reels. The man on the left of the screen will throw a boomerang at the Bonus Reel to hit a piece of fruit, which will be added to the cocktail he is making. More Wilds appearing triggers more Re-spins and a Multiplier is added to the payouts, increasing by 1x each time. If you manage to add 4 pieces of fruit to the cocktail, the Cocktail Free Spins round begins.
Cocktail Free Spins
The Multiplier you achieved in the Re-spins is carried into the Free Spins round and the various fruit bonuses are also added to the feature. Although you only get 1 Free Spin initially, the bonuses won from the fruits during the Re-spins can give additional benefits, such as Wild symbols, another Free Spin and increased Multipliers.
Crazy Fresh is a fun and great-looking slot game with a fresh Australian theme. The gameplay will appeal to fans of medium volatility slots, although 15 paylines is on the low side. The Boomerang Re-spins feature is the best part of the game with its Progressive Multipliers offering the chance to rack up the rewards, but the Free Spins round is a disappointment with only 1 Free Spin available. The top payout of 25,000x stake is also highly attractive but you’d have to be super lucky with your Re-spins, Multipliers and Bonuses from the fruits to get near this amount.
