We don’t often get down on the farm in the world of pokies, maybe something about all the mud and the animals turns off players used to the finer things in life? Whatever the reason, we were happy to see Crazy Cows come along and give us a taste of that fresh country air. But these aren’t your every day ‘stand and stare at the world’ type of livestock! These cows are much more interested in getting pampered for that perfect selfie and having a bit of fun. So will you fit in at the farm or are you a stick in the mud? Let’s find out in our Crazy Cows slot game review.
There’s nothing too surprising about the look of the Crazy Cows pokie at first glance: the background of the screen is dominated by a huge barn and surrounded by a cute looking farm complete with green fields, adorable animals and sunflowers as far as the eye can see. On the reels though, it gets a little stranger. The low value symbols are the standard 9 – A dressed as animals and getting up to all sorts of mischief: floating on rubber rings, lounging in mud puddles and sitting in tubs of water. Meanwhile, the high value symbols are the wacky and pampered cows that live in the barn, wearing rainbow wigs and carrying mobile phones. There’s a suitably zany and annoying banjo accompaniment, and plenty of animal noise sound effects for good measure.
The reason for all this nuttiness in Crazy Cows is apparently the desire to impress the hunky local bull, which is also the wild card and struts about the farm preening himself and taking selfies. He occasionally appears on the five reels and three rows that you get to play with, doing the usual job of a wild and replacing other symbols to complete combos, and you can bet up to £/$/€75 per spin in the hope that he shows up and wins you some big prizes. He can also help you out by becoming an expanding wild when he lands on the middle reel, taking up the whole thing on his own and winning you bigger prizes. The RTP in this slot is a shade above average at 96.18%, but luckily there are some nice bonuses to help you beat those odds!
The bonuses really boil down to free spins in the Crazy Cows slot game, but there are a couple of ways of getting to them which are fun all on their own. The first way is by landing three or more of the barn bonus symbols, which set off a little animation that will be your chance to impress the bull and get some free spins from him. Choose a cow to perform an acrobatic high dive and you’ll get a random number of free spins and a random cash prize! You can also guarantee yourself five free spins by landing three or more of the locket scatters, and you can add up to 50 more to this total by landing more lockets in the free spins.
Crazy Cows is a great pokie with a zany theme and if you can look past the nuttiness there is actually a fun and high paying little game on the other side. The jackpot isn’t huge at £/$/€2500, but there are enough chances to win it that you might get the faster than you’d think!
