Game in Action
You couldn’t rightly call Crazy Cows a beautiful slot. Eye of the Kraken by Play’n GO is beautiful. Crazy Cows looks cartoonish instead. But someone had a great sense of humour here and the cows (seductive, in love and awkward cow), the dog and the bull are all entertaining characters. The slot is nicely drawn in a unique style and underscored by the barnyard music, you’ll find it quite enjoyable.
Instead of standard card symbols (which thankfully Play’n GO knows to deviate from frequently), we get letters that actually spell out C, R, A, Z, Y. The odds of those appearing on a payline in that order are not particularly high and it would have been a fantastic little Easter egg, if that would be a paying combination.
The base game benefits from dog scatters, which will always pay extra as long as there are two anywhere on the screen. During the free spins the scatter will increase your multiplier by 1x every time two of them show up. You can get up to 5x multiplier that way.
Then there is Bill the Bull, who is the wild in the game. When he lands on reel 3, he will expand. If the two halves of the heart pendant show up on reels 2 and 4 at the same time, you’ll get 5 re-spins awarded and Bill will be sticky throughout. A further two heart pendants on reels 2 and 4 will add to additional re-spins. All the while, by the way, Bill will strike some macho poses, which is more entertaining to watch than actually paying attention to possible wins.
Three barn scatters will trigger the bonus round. Again, it’s funny and entertaining. You have to choose one of the three loved-up cows, who will then proceed to take a dive jump off the roof of the barn. It’s all quite athletic. Once the jump is successfully completed, the dog will evaluate it and award you some free spins. Usually you’ll get between 10 and 20, but it’s possible to get up to 50. You also receive a cash reward for the completed jump.
Then the free spins commence and, as mentioned, two dog scatters will increase your multiplier by 1x every time they land on the reels. Bill the Bull will also expand on the middle reel here, but re-spins don’t seem to be available here.
Other Slot Machines You Might Enjoy
If you don’t find loved-up cartoon cows and a macho bull entertaining, then this slot won’t be for you. We were sceptical at first, but found ourselves soon reeled in and enjoyed the slot quite a bit. It’s comical and engaging and since it’s not super volatile, you’ll be able to enjoy it for quite some time.
Crazy Cows is a bit of an outlier in Play’n GO’s suite of slots, but that’s not a bad thing at all. Yes, some may find the slot a little bit silly, but if that’s the case, you’re taking your slot play way too seriously to begin with.
