Crabbin’ Crazy Slot Review 2021

This is the first and probably only time you will be ‘itching’ to catch crabs in iSoftBet’s newest release, Crabbin’ Crazy!

iSoftBet are back with another edition to their evergrowing collection of Hold & Win slots, but is there room in the slots market for another? iSoftBet certainly thinks so.

Hold & Win slots are becoming all the more popular and if there was a reward for the provider with the most Hold & Win slots, we are pretty confident iSoftBet would win it. The famous Hold & Win feature is a lot like Marmite, you’re either a lover or a hater of it and we are pretty sure players are divided in their opinions.

iSoftBet has already graced us with many Hold & Win style slots in the past, with Diamond Heist Hold & Win and Moon Spirit Hold & Win being two of their more recent titles, but will Crabbin’ Crazy shine bright like the rest? Let’s get stuck in and find out!

Crabbin' Crazy Base Game

Crabbin’ Crazy Theme

It could just be our crude sense of humour, or do you think iSoftBet were trying to throw in a pun with the slogan ‘Let’s Catch Crabs!’ on the loading page? either way, for those of you who love a play on words, we’re sure you will be chuckling every time you see it.

If a day sunbathing at the beach is more your scene, you’re going to thoroughly enjoy what iSoftBet has done with the background. A beautiful sandy beach with clear skies and a glistening deep blue sea are the first to jump out at you, with little details like a lighthouse and a flag to further compliment the theme. Some aspects of the background can be seen moving, so if you thought your eyes were playing tricks on you, they aren’t.

The music playing throughout is nothing special in our opinion, it’s calming and subtle, and definitely sets the mood for a day at the beach crabbing. Sound effects are really nice, each time you press the spin button you can hear the sounds of a fishing rod casting out. Overall, the sound effects tie in nicely with the theme.

iSoftBet are reeling in all the puns in Crabbin’ Crazy, with all the Crab symbols having hilarious names like ‘Taxi Crab’ and ‘Shish Crabob’. If you weren’t in fits of laughter before, you will be now!

Crabbin’ Crazy Our Verdict

Crabbin’ Crazy continues iSoftBet’s tirade of Hold & Win slots in a meticulous fashion with a light-hearted slot with a couple of humorous innendos.

We’re the kind of childish that wouldn’t be able to pass up on a good ‘crabs’ joke either, so we’re here for them kinds of references. You should never take life too seriously after all, and in a way that’s one of the reasons why we like Crabbin’ Crazy. Some Slots leave is un awe with their serious themes and potential to match, but then Crabbin’ Crazy comes along to remind us to take it easy, sit back, enjoy the silliness and laugh.

Crabbin’ Crazy has plenty of features to enjoy, and as a medium volatility option you can expect decent, but not exponential wins. Speaking of wins, the highest possible win here is 1,286x, and the RTP is bang average at 96%

Overall. Crabbin Crazy doesn’t take itself too seriously, and you shouldn’t either. It’s silly, fun, diverse and a laugh.
