Are you interested in trying out a multiplier online slot game such as Chaos Crew? If so, do you know what a multiplier slot game is?
By way of answering this question, let’s consider the following points:
What is a multiplier slot game?
Before we look at the ins and outs of the Chaos Crew game; ergo, the gameplay and the storyline, let's look at a description of a multiplier slot game.
The quintessential nature of a multiplier slot is that they have the potential to increase the player's winnings exponentially.
Most multipliers are between x2 and x10, but some games offer multipliers as high as x1000 or more. These multipliers increase bets, line wins, and total wins the stated amount exponentially to increase the player's winnings substantially. These multipliers are denoted by symbols like x20 that land during the base game or bonus game.
For instance, you wager $1 on a single pay line and click the spin button. You win a free spin bonus round. And within this bonus round, an x20 multiplier is triggered. Thus, instead of winning $1 on the bonus round, you win 20 times the placed bet, or $20.
It is vital to note at this juncture that a game with high-end multipliers is also often a high-volatility and high-variance game.
What is volatility and variance in an online slot game?
Succinctly stated, a variance is defined as the measure of the distribution of long-term results. In other words, online slot games tend to have a high variation between prizes. Ergo, they do not pay out often. Players have to pay for a reasonably long time, especially when compared to card games like Blackjack and Poker.
Secondly, volatility refers to the risk and unpredictability that the slot game contains. There are three risk levels, low-risk, medium-risk, and high-risks games; ergo, the higher the risk, the greater the game's volatility.
The importance of gambling in moderation
Note: It is essential to gamble in moderation. In general, gambling is a high-risk activity, and you should never gamble with money you cannot afford to lose.
Why is this statement relevant to this conversation?
High-risk or high-volatility games expose the gambler to the risk of losing large sums of money if not carefully monitored and controlled. Therefore, it is essential to budget a specific amount every month for playing online slot games for relaxation and entertainment. It is equally important not to manage your bankroll to ensure that you do not run out of money.
Chaos Crew: The game
Chaos Crew is an online video slot game created by Hacksaw Gaming, a relatively new entrant into the online gaming industry with the sole aim of rethinking and revamping “classical products that are currently in the market.”
Hacksaw Gaming’s game development methodology is driven by a “mobile-first approach.” Therefore, the brand’s online video slot games and scratch cards are highly playable on any mobile device like a smartphone or tablet and a desktop or laptop computer.
Apart from Hacksaw Gaming’s mobile-first approach, the company has also developed an initial portfolio of online slot games that incorporate exciting gameplay and high jackpots.
In summary, the online slot game, Chaos Crew, fits this description of an online slot. It is also a highly volatile, 5 x 5 grid payout lines slot that includes multipliers in the gameplay. The maximum multiplier in this game is 10 000x the value of the initial wager.
This game includes two characters, Cranky Cat and Sketchy. Cranky Cat’s behavior is wild, including a mystery multiplier that increases the win line’s value exponentially when the multiplier is revealed. Cranky Cat’s multiplier numbers include x2, x3, and x5. You can also get more than one Cranky Cat multiplier on one win line. In other words, all the multipliers on one line multiply each other to increase the winning total substantially.
For instance, let’s assume that you wager $10 on a pay line, and two Cranky Cat multipliers (x3 and x5) pop up after clicking on the button. As a result, your initial $10 will be multiplied by x3 and then x5, respectively. Therefore, your total winnings will be:
$10 x 3 = $30 x 5 = $150
The next important symbol to talk about is the Free Spin.
After placing a bet and clicking on the button, if 3 Free Spin symbols are revealed, the game goes into free spin mode, with the default behavior being batches of 3 free spins. Every time one of the winning symbols is revealed, the number of free spins resets to 3.
For example, your latest spin action resulted in 3 Free Spin symbols on the game interface. As described above, the game goes into free spin mode.
On your first free spin, the Cranky Cat x20 symbol appears. Your initial bet amount, $10, is displayed above the current reel. This $10 will be multiplied by 20, resulting in a total value of $200. Finally, the total number of free spins resets itself back to 3.
The next two free spins do not return any winning symbols, but the third spin reveals an Epic Cranky Cat with an x2 multiplier. The $200 total winnings are multiplied by 2, increasing the total value to $400, and the number of the free spins is reset back to three.
Again, the first spin does not reveal any winning symbols, but the second free spin reveals a Sketchy Skull with a +20 multiplier. This amount is added to the total winnings taking it from $400 to $420.
It is reasonable to assume that this free spin cycle can perpetuate indefinitely. However, the three free spins will occur without any of the winning symbols appearing at some point. When this happens, the game goes back into its normal play mode, and $420 gets added to your total bankroll, displayed on the bottom left-hand corner of the screen.
Finally, there are different ways to win, depending on the winning symbols’ position on the screen or the way they are situated on the 5 x 5 grid. Here is a diagram illustrating these positions.
