They are both based on a Wheel of Fortune, where players bet on sections on the wheel to win money.
What’s different about both of these games is the addition of Bonus segments on the wheel. Landing on one of these, either triggers a multiplier to be applied to the win of the next spin or the opportunity to enter a bonus round, where big wins are the ultimate prize.
In this article, I’m going to compare the differences between Crazy Time and Monopoly Live to see which of the two games:
There are going to be a lot of comparisons made between Crazy Time and Monopoly Live. Which one is better to play? which one has the best payouts? and which one is more enjoyable to play are some of the questions that will be asked.
I’ve played both of the games and performed some analysis that will hopefully answer those questions.

The worse paying bonus on Crazy Time is the Coin Flip – it’s not unusual to get under 5x. 2 Rolls on Monopoly pays on average 10x.
An RNG engine is used to decide 2 Bonus results on Crazy Time – the Cash Hunt and Crazy Time.
With Monopoly, all game choices are determined by the physical rolls of the dice (except the allocation of multipliers on the Monopoly Board).
If you like lots of things happening then Crazy Time is probably the better game to play as there is always something to interest you.
However, you may get frustrated with the frequency of low wins, however, this will keep your balance turning over.
If you just play numbers then there’s a better chance of winning bigger on Crazy Time than Monopoly, purely because Crazy time numbers can get multipliers from the Top Slot. It seems that No.1 gets the multipliers most frequently.
For pure number bets – Crazy time is better to play. While there are more ones and two on Monopoly Live (38), the ones and twos on Crazy Time (34) also get win multipliers assigned, which more than offsets the difference of number segments between the two.
For bonuses – Crazy time has more plentiful bonuses and I feel they pay on average the same as Monopoly. But when you’re playing it feels less, which may be due to the way this high variance game is structured.
This one is down to personal preference. I enjoy different aspects of each game.
I think the Numbers are better with Crazy time – I like the additional multipliers you can get and therefore the enhanced payouts.
As for bonus rounds, this may surprise you.
I prefer the 4 rolls on Monopoly, for these reasons.
As much as the Crazy Time Bonus rounds are great, I haven’t been hooked by any of them in the way 4 Rolls has done on Monopoly.
You need to play both to see if you agree with me:-)
While both Monopoly Live Dream Catcher and Crazy Time Dream Catcher are similar games, they are not the same.
At times they both create utter frustration with players – you only have to see the in-game chat when Bonuses aren’t appearing, and even when they do how players react so badly when the payouts are just a few times the bet.
If you can look past the cheating and fix claims by unhappy players, you have a simple choice.
Do you want to play Crazy Time that has lots of bonus rounds, that generally pay out low most of the time and then Big every once in a while OR Monopoly Live that does the same, but with Bonus rounds less frequent.
Monopoly Live edges it on RTP by one percentage point, so there’s not much in it overall.
Payouts are capped on both games at £500,000, so the potential is definitely there.
My advice is simple – try them both. The alternative is to play both at the same time. Play the Numbers on Crazy Time and the Bonus Rolls on Monopoly or even a mix of Numbers and Pachinko and Crazy Time Bonus on Crazy time and the 2 and 4 Rolls on Monopoly Live.
If you like Crazy Time and Monopoly live you’ll probably like this alternative game.
