An Introduction to Crash Games

Crash games are a unique and exhilarating new online casino game genre that is growing as exponentially as their multipliers, and you’ll find a selection of the best at EmuCasino.

What is a Crash Game?

Crash games are a new and unique online casino game type that is slowly gaining popularity for its simple and engaging gameplay. While crash games now come in a variety of different themes and styles, the bare bones basics include an increasing bet multiplier that will randomly stop, or crash. It is up to the player to place their bets and cash out with their winnings before the multiplier crashes, hence the name ‘Crash Game’.

It is a fun alternative to traditional online slot games, and gives players the opportunity to engage in more active gameplay and strategy.

The basics of a crash game is quite standard across the genre, making it easy to learn and apply those betting skills to different crash games. For those who are less familiar with a genre, here is a crash course on crash games to help you get started:

How to Play Crash Casino Games

Crash games are split into rounds. In each round, the multiplier will begin increasing before eventually crashing at a random point. There will be a short break between rounds to give players the chance to place their bets.

Step 1: Place your Bets

To begin, place your bet at the start of a new round. Some crash games allow players to place bets for the next round during an ongoing round.

Some crash games may allow you to place only one bet per round, while other games allow you to place up to 3 bets per round. Individually adjustable bets makes many of these crash games very customisable based on your playstyle.


Step 2: Watch the Multiplier Rise

When the round begins, the multiplier will begin to increase from a starting multiplier of 1.00x. This will be displayed at the centre of the screen, and some games will display the increasing payout amount in real cash values based on your bet.


Step 3: Cash Out!

Players can cash out on their bet at any time after the round begins. When you cash out, your payout for the round will be based on the multiplier that you cashed out at.

Be Careful Not to Crash

The multiplier will ‘crash’ and stop increasing at a random point after the game begins, which is what gives the genre its name.


If a player has not cashed out before the multiplier crashes, then they will lose their bet for that round. The goal is to cash out just before the multiplier crashes for the highest possible payout.

There is no real way to ‘predict’ the crash, as it is entirely based on luck and chance. Players can take the safe approach and cash out early to avoid crashing and losing their bet. Or, those brave enough to take high risks can reap even higher rewards by waiting for huge multipliers, but of course that comes at the risk of crashing before reaching the desired amount and losing it all.


Some crash games feature an ‘Auto Cashout’ option that allows players to select a predetermined multiplier to automatically cash out their bet at if reached. Games that allow more than one bet per round that have this feature often allow players to adjust the Auto Cashout multipliers independently from each other.

Since all crash games follow the same basic framework, once you know how to play one crash game, you’ll easily be able to play others too! It’s a fun and exciting game of luck, strategy, and perseverance.
