Crazy Nuts Slot Review
How the heck did the word “nuts” ever become a substitute for crazy? Well never fear because I'm here to answer this burning question! (But don't think because I'm explaining this to you that I'm a Dear Abbey or something. Next thing I know players will be writing in with all sorts of queries:
Dear Bob, I have a burning sensation… Dear Bob, my boss just said I have a great… Dear Bob, How can I be as cool as you?)
What was I talking about? Oh yes – by the mid 19th century the term “nut” had come to be used as slang for someone's head. By the turn of the century, it had morphed into “nuts” as a term for mentally unstable. Enter Crazy Nuts, a traditional video slot by Belatra designed to work on your P.C, mobile device or tablet. OK – so basically this slot means Crazy Crazy? That's just bizarre. On top of that who would replace the fruit in a fruit slot with nuts? My head is spinning; my world is upside-down – this is unheard of!
The surreal feeling continued after starting – like I was trapped in a weird alternate universe where nuts had become a popular symbol in slots rather the fruits. ( I know – what you're thinking - “this guy is nuts” and well, that's not the first time I've heard that phrase, but I prefer to be called unstable.)
Crazy Nuts is a 3 reel and 5 payline high volatility slot. The symbols are a variety of different nuts, a Crazy Nuts logo, a coconut and bar symbol. The controls brightly adorn the bottom of the game screen: Settings (including Paytable and Gamble toggle), Lines, Credits, Bet, Total Bet, Win Amount, Max Bet, Start and Autostart. There's no Turbospin, but I didn't really mind.
Spin to win. It's simple and uncomplicated! Apart from that, there is a gamble option after each winning spin with two choices that can be pre-selected in settings:
A high card draw with the dealer which is a double or nothing bet.
A 2Xbet on card color or 4X bet on card color and suit.
The graphics are peculiar just because they are unique symbols. However, they are excellently rendered as well. I loved the creaking of the reels on each spin – a really fantastic sound effect. The music wasn't present that often which for me is a big positive in a slot. Performance wise, Crazy Nuts took a while to load but after that is was plain sailing.
“Is crazy Mr. Fawlty, crazy!” That's the best way to some up Crazy Nuts – its got underlying humor to it that's not overt but is ever present. It's a zany yet straightforward slot with some fantastic winning potential. So – get ready to go…yes I'm gonna say it…NUTS!
