So take your place on the hot seat as we unfold our beginner’s guide to live game shows!


What are Live Game Shows?

Welcome to live game shows - the category that’s all about making you the star of the show! Inspired by the programs that had you glued to your telly, live game shows stay true to the look and feel of a television studio to bring you 24 hours of uninterrupted entertainment, 7 days a week.

Combining elements of classic table games with popular RNG mechanics, our live game shows promise to get your pulse racing with the addition of bonus rounds and unlimited multipliers! But of course, it just wouldn't be a game show without a proper host! Evolution Gaming’s larger-than-life hosts inject the true nature of showbiz into live game shows, paying homage to television’s biggest personalities.

So you may be wondering, what does it take to go down in the hall of fame? How do you play live game shows? Unique in their nature, game shows strive to be the next big thing - continuously introducing new mechanics and rulesets. There’s simply no one-size-fits-all explanation for how to play these thrilling games. For this reason, we thought we’d take you through how to play our top six live game shows!

Live Dream Catcher

The first in Evolution Gaming’s plethora of live game shows, Live Dream Catcher has paved the way for the Money Wheel. Since then, the Spinning Wheel mechanic has steadily gained popularity, attracting a full spectrum of gamblers from land-based players to slot enthusiasts, and high rollers alike.

Divided into 54 equal parts, each segment of the Money Wheel constitutes a different payout, with two of these awarding 2x and 7x your initial stake. Promising super-sized fun, the Money Wheel builds on the principles of roulette, allowing you to bet on which number the flapper will stop on (1, 2, 5, 10, 20 or 40).

In the case that the flapper stops on 2x MULTIPLIER or 7x MULTIPLIER, your bets will remain locked as the live game show host takes a second spin. All winning bets are then multiplied accordingly. If, on the other hand, the flapper stops on another multiplier, the win potential continues to accumulate for a maximum payout of ₹50,000,000.




Building upon the legacy of Live Dream Catcher, MONOPOLY Live takes inspiration from the classic board game we all grew up playing! In this game, each number on the Money Wheel corresponds to a payout of the same value (1x, 2x, 5x or 10x).

Combining live game action and augmented reality, MONOPOLY Live transports you to a 3D adventure alongside MR. MONOPOLY himself! Simply land a winning bet on 2 ROLLS or 4 ROLLS to trigger the bonus round - during which MR. MONOPOLY walks around the board to collect cash prizes and multipliers.

On the off-chance that the wheel stops on a ‘CHANCE’ segment, MR. MONOPOLY presents a card to award an instant cash prize or a random multiplier. In the case that the CHANCE card shows a multiplier, all bets remain in place while the host takes another spin at the wheel. All winning bets are then multiplied accordingly. This is unless MR. MONOPOLY awards another multiplier, in which case the win potential is further amplified.

Crazy Time Live

And if you thought you had seen the best of the Money Wheel, then think again! What’s said to be the game of 2020, Crazy Time Live promises to be the “most fun casino game ever made”.

Following in the footsteps of Live Dream Catcher and MONOPOLY Live, Crazy Time Live introduces a Top Slot to the Money Wheel mechanic to generate up to a 20x multiplier for one random bet spot, at the beginning of each round.

In this game, you can bet on individual numbers: 1, 2, 5 or 10, for a corresponding payout or - alternatively - you may place your stake on Coin Flip, Cash Hunt, Pachinko or Crazy Time to be in with a chance of unlocking one of these four nail-biting bonus rounds:

  • Coin Flip - Red or Blue? Let the coin determine your fate! At the start of each Coin Flip, both faces of a coin are assigned a random multiplier. The coin is then flipped by the Flip-O-Matic machine to award the multiplier corresponding to the upper face of the coin.

  • Cash Hunt - Reminiscent of a carnival game, the Cash Hunt is, in essence, a shooting range featuring a total of 108 multipliers. At the beginning of this round, the game show host pulls a golden lever. As a result, all the multipliers are replaced by a series of random symbols which are then shuffled into place. At this point, you must aim the cannon to a symbol of your choice and take your shot to reveal up to a 100x multiplier. The outcome of this bonus round is completely determined by your selection, so choose wisely!

  • Pachinko - Drop it like it’s hot on Crazy Time’s super-sized Pachinko wall. In this bonus game, the game show host releases a puck from the top of the wall. As it falls, the puck is swayed into a random direction by the physical pegs affixed to the wall. Once it’s reached the bottom, the puck may land on a multiplier or a ‘DOUBLE’ landing zone. In case of the latter, all the multipliers on the wall are doubled and the puck is dropped a second time. This may continue to happen until a maximum multiplier of 10,000x is reached.

  • Crazy Time - Hop aboard the money train for a particularly crazy time! Featuring the biggest Money Wheel in online casino, the Crazy Time bonus puts a twist on the Spinning Wheel, integrating a total of three coloured flappers - green, blue, and yellow. At the beginning of each round, you’ll be prompted to select one of these flappers to eventually determine your prize on the wheel. If any of the flappers stop on ‘DOUBLE’ or ‘TRIPLE’, then all the values on the wheel are multiplied accordingly and the wheel is spun again. This may continue to happen until a maximum multiplier of 20,000x is reached.



Live Lightning Roulette

Live Lightning Roulette sparks up your gameplay with the addition of multipliers which pay up to 500x your stake! Played like your average game of roulette, Live Lightning Roulette features all the regular bets and payouts, with a few exceptions!

After all the bets have been placed, a lightning bolt strikes up to five Lucky Numbers, every round. Each of these numbers is assigned a random multiplier of 50x, 100x, 200x, 300x, 400x or 500x. If by the end of the spin, the ball lands on any one of the Lucky Numbers, all winning Straight Up bets on the corresponding numbers are paid out the respective multiplier.

While Live Lightning Roulette offers a striking win potential, it’s good to keep in mind that regular Straight Up Bets pay 30:1 in this game. This is as opposed to traditional roulette tables which pay 35:1.



Live Mega Ball

If you’re familiar with National Bingo Night then you’ll quickly learn the ropes of Live Mega Ball! Based on the familiar bingo-style mechanic, Live Mega Ball is an exhilarating live game show that gets the ball rolling for up to 1,000,000x your stake!

At the beginning of each round, Live Mega Ball gives you the option to buy anywhere from 1 to 200 cards. Each of these cards is divided into 5 rows of 5 and features 24 randomly assorted numbers with a Free Square at the centre. One by one, the ball drawing machine extracts 20 of 51 numbered balls as the interface marks off each corresponding number from your cards. Ultimately, the goal in this game is to accumulate up to 12 lines of numbers in each card.

The Mega Ball comes into play at the end of each round, whereby the last ball drawn is assigned a multiplier ranging from 5x to 100x. If any line on your card is completed with the Mega Ball, your winnings will be multiplied accordingly. On rare occasions, the game may present up to two Mega Balls at a time. In this case, your payout is multiplied by the highest multiplier of the two.



Deal Or No Deal Live

The banker is on the line. Will you accept his offer or will you continue playing for up to 500x your bet? Staying loyal to the original television format, Deal or No Deal Live is a multi-layered game that’s riddled with suspense.

In this immersive game, you must use your raw intuition to guess whether the amount of money in the 16 available briefcases is higher than the Banker’s offer. One by one, you will have to eliminate each briefcase until you’re left with just two to choose from. From time to time, the Banker will drop you a line to make a deal. Take the offer and end the game or choose to keep playing for the top prize!

But there’s just one catch! In order to join the live game show, you must first pass a qualifying round. To do so, you will need to spin a wheel made up of three independent rings and align the golden segments of each ring to the upper section of the wheel. As you do this, each spin will boost the prize contained in a briefcase of your choice by up to 500x your bet.

If you’re finding it hard to qualify, Deal or No Deal Live allows you to lower the level of difficulty with the buy-in feature. Simply calibrate your level from ‘Normal’ to ‘Easy’ or ‘Very Easy’ to increase your chances of qualifying. Once you’ve aligned all three rings on the vault, you will also be offered the option to ‘Top Up’ any of the briefcases by an additional 50x!
