Evolution: Raising the return to players

Evolution, Cash or Crash

Evolution has launched Cash or Crash, a unique online live game show in which players take off on an augmented reality blimp ride and aim to soar high over a metropolis and with the possibility to win up to 50,000x. According to Evolution, the 99.6 percent RTP (Return To Player) game is one of the most generous, player-friendly games ever offered in gaming.

Cash or Crash is an immersive game show that requires strategy from the players. In this game there are red and green balls with one special gold ball. A single ball is drawn and if it isn’t red then the player is offered money, which they may take and cash out, take half and keep going, or continue and keep going for bigger prizes, which go all the way up to 50,000x. 

Players must cash out before a red ball is drawn or the blimp crashes and they lose. There is also a gold ball, which acts as a shield protecting players from the next red ball and increases payouts.

A strategic element to the game puts players in control. After a green ball is drawn or after a gold ball shield is broken, players can choose to ‘Continue’, ‘Take Half’ their winnings and continue with the remaining 50 percent, or ‘Take All’ and cash out all of their winnings and finish their participation in the game round.

Todd Haushalter, Chief Product Officer at Evolution, said: “This year we have chosen to introduce more decision-making and strategy into our game shows to expand the space to a wider and new audience. This is not just a strategy game, but it is a skill-based game and at that it is the most generous game players have ever seen online. It has a 99.6 percent payback rate when played optimally and furthermore, with 20 balls advancing players and just 8 red balls, players will have the chance to cash out with a profit 71 percent of the time on average, which is largely unheard of. There are no side bets and no complexity. It’s just a pure gambling experience that keeps you on the edge of your seat.”
