Three years after the first Chaos Crew slot was released, Cranky Cat and Sketchy Skull are back for more mayhem. Chaos Crew II slot from Hacksaw Gaming has what the company calls “Banksy-like visuals” and “punk ethos.” Now, I’m not sure I can vouch for either of those things, but it most certainly has attitude. And in this, the sequel to the 2020 original, that attitude is turned up to 11.
Grab your spray can, put on your favorite 90s punk band on your Walkman, and let’s get this show on the road.
Get ready to rock out
Chaos Crew II slot is a 5×5-reel game that features 19 paylines.
The Cranky Cat symbol acts as a wild multiplier in the base game, substituting for all other symbols except for the bonus symbol to complete winning combinations. Winning amounts will then have a random multiplier applied.
On any random spin, the Drop of Epic Proportions can be activated. Once it is, the reels will be transformed into the bonus game for a single spin with a minimum of five multiplier symbols appearing. Once the spin is complete, the reels will transform back to the base game.
The slot’s base bonus game is triggered with the appearance of three bonus symbols on the reels. During the bonus round, any of eight different symbols can appear on the reels. Each symbol will have a different effect on the reel multiplier of the specific reel it lands on or on all of the reel multipliers at the same time. At the end of the round, each reel multiplier is added together with the total being applied to your bet amount.
- Sketchy Skull – Adds a displayed multiplier value to the reel multiplier.
- Sticky Sketchy Skull – Sticks in place and adds its displayed multiplier value to the reel multiplier once on every spin for the duration of the round.
- Epic Sketchy Skull – Add its displayed multiplier value to all reel multipliers.
- Sticky Epic Sketchy Skull – Sticks in place and adds its displayed multiplier value to all reel multipliers once on every spin for the duration of the round.
- Cranky Cat – Multiplies the reel multiplier by its displayed value.
- Sticky Cranky Cat – Sticks in place and multiplies the reel multiplier by its displayed value once on every spin for the duration of the round.
- Epic Cranky Cat – Multiplies all reel multipliers by its displayed value.
- Sticky Epic Cranky Cat – Sticks in place and multiplies all reel multipliers by its displayed value once on every spin for the duration of the round.
In addition to the base bonus game, the slot also offers Super Bonus, Best of Bonus, and Best of Super Bonus rounds.
A Super Bonus round is triggered with four bonus symbols. Once triggered, the round will be much the same as the standard round, except on the first spin, you will receive a minimum of seven multiplier symbols.
The Best of Bonus round is triggered with three bonus symbols and one Best of Bonus symbol. Once triggered, your round will continue exactly like a standard bonus round. However, once that round is done, you’ll play another two rounds. You will then be awarded the highest win multiplier of the three rounds.
Finally, the Best of Super Bonus round is triggered with four bonus symbols and one Best of Bonus symbol. This round will be exactly the same as the Best of Bonus round, except that once the first round is done, you’ll play another two rounds. You will then be awarded the highest win multiplier of the three rounds
If you prefer to make your own chaos instead of waiting for it to come to you, then you can use the Chaos Crew II slot buy bonus feature. The slot offers one of the most extensive buy bonus features I’ve ever seen. The first two options don’t outright buy a round of one of the slot’s bonus games. Instead, when they’re activated, they increase your bet slightly, in addition to increasing your chance of triggering a bonus game the old-fashioned way. You then have the option to purchase a round of the slot bonus, Super Bonus, Best of Bonus, and Best of Super Bonus rounds. That last one is, however, rather expensive.
Is Chaos Crew II slot in its final form?
Chaos Crew II slot features everything that I wanted out of the first slot in the series but didn’t get. It’s perfect. The graphics are great and will make it a perfect option for some spooky gaming this Halloween. The graphics and punk energy are backed up with some incredible bonus features that are all executed exceptionally well. It’s a really good slot.
The most notable stat for Chaos Crew II slot is the huge 20,000x max multiplier. It’s not the largest I’ve seen this year (that award goes to Money Train 4 with its mind-blowing 150,000x max multiplier), but it is nonetheless on the rare side to have a multiplier this large. It allows you to bet at just €10 a spin to play for the slot’s max payout of €200,000. It also ensures that even when you’re betting at the €0.10 minimum, you can still expect some impressive wins. The slot does have high volatility, which means that you won’t really be able to count on small, consistent wins as you search for a rare big win. The slot has an RTP of 96.27%.
