Evolution continues to grow its library of exciting live casino games, and one of the latest additions is Cash or Crash. This box-fresh live game-show experience has definitely caught the eye of many players, who are looking for advice on how to improve their play. Join us as we provide a number of tips for playing the Cash or Crash live casino game.
<h2>What is Cash or Crash?</h2>
If you enjoy playing live dealer games on your favourite casino site, you might already have come across Cash or Crash. It’s a lottery-style game set aboard a blimp that climbs higher into the sky for each win that you get, and has an amazing RTP (return to player) of 99.59%. Let’s take a look at how this game works.
The action is set in the blimp’s lounge, with huge glass windows allowing you to take in the city in the background. The real-life conductor (the game’s host) directs the action from near a transparent sphere on a futuristic pedestal in the centre of the room. This see-through orb is filled with 28 coloured balls: 19 green, eight red, and one gold. One of these balls is randomly chosen and pulled out, coming to rest in the area around the sphere at the end of each round.
If one of the green balls is selected, you are taken one level higher on the paytable (each level has a higher multiplier than the last). You’ll notice the blimp rising higher above the city each time a green ball is chosen. At this point, you are also given three options. You can:
Cash out all your money, which ends the game for you
Cash out half and carry on playing with the other half in the next round
Carry on and wager the whole amount you’ve won in the next round.
If you are unlucky and a red ball is chosen, the game immediately ends, although the selection of a golden ball will protect against one red ball later in the game (it acts like a one-off shield), as well as boost your winnings from the second round. A golden ball boosts your potential Level 2 winnings from 1.6x to 1.7x, while pushing your potential Level 20 winnings from 18,000x to an incredible 50,000x!
When the game is over, all the balls surrounding the sphere fall back into the sphere and the action starts again.
<h2>Tips to help you play Cash or Crash</h2>
Now that we’ve explained a bit about how this game works, here are a few things to keep in mind if you decide to give it a go.
<h3>Leverage the odds at the end of each round</h3>
This game has a useful tool to help you decide whether you want to keep on playing or call it quits. At the end of each round, a green and red blimp will appear on each side of your wager options. The green blimp will display a percentage that indicates how likely a green ball is to appear, while similarly, the red blimp will display how likely a red ball is to appear. It’s up to you to decide how much risk is too much, but this feature can help you make an informed choice as to whether you want to keep on playing, split the stake, or cash out in your current game.
<h3>Understand that big wins come with big risks</h3>
Much like other game shows, the longer you manage to stay in the game, the more you have to lose. This is also true for Cash or Crash, as your chances of hitting a red ball go up each time a green or golden ball is removed. With this in mind, you need to make sure you are OK with throwing away a good win in pursuit of a great one; and if you’re not, simply cash out at the end of a round when you are happy to do so.
<h3>Bet big in the early rounds</h3>

Your greatest chances of winning are in the early rounds, when the most green balls are in play. You can take this strategy to the extreme and bet big on round one when your chances of winning are at their highest and cash out as soon as the first round is over (assuming you land a green ball and don’t get unlucky). Remember, though, that you should always set a limit for how much you intend to bet during any gambling session.
<h3>It’s safest to bank half</h3>
If you want to minimise your losses, it’s a good idea to always bank half your money at the end of each round. Yes, it may take longer to break even, but if fortune isn’t on your side you won’t take as big a hit.
<h3>Quit when you’re ahead…</h3>
Due to the amazing RTP in this game, you may find yourself with a small profit in the early rounds of the game. If you’re happy with taking small edges when you can, even if it means a smaller prize, then cashing out early is one way to ensure your bankroll stays healthy.
<h3>…but don’t chase your losses</h3>
Having said that, if you’ve started playing this game and you’re down on your luck and keep losing, it’s really important that you don’t fall into the trap of continuing to play in an attempt to recover your lost credits. Take a break and do something else instead.
