From the outset this sounds like a good idea for an online slot. I mean, Chameleons. All that changing colour? That it just plain crazy straight off. So this slot should be as off the wall as Michael Jackson’s fifth album. If any slot developer knows how to go crazy with their titles, it’s Microgaming.
We can tell from the off that this slot is bare old school, with its five reels and five paylines. Compared to some modern slot titles it pales into comparison, but what it does have is charm and oodles of it. The Crazy Chameleons of the slot’s title are labeled crazy because they are down the beach on a surfing safari, quite possibly breaking out the Beach Boys and cold ones. I wouldn’t be surprised if a few of them went topless, though we aren’t treated to any of those kinds of shenanigans in the graphics. Unless you’re seriously into lizards that can only be a good thing.
So our symbols are things you’ll find down the beach – surfboards, grinning seagulls (Mine! Mine!), bermuda shorts of the variety your dad might wear, a smiling sun showing off his sunglasses and, of course, our Crazy Chameleon of the title, our highest paying symbol. And those funky grooves? This lounge lizard laps up some funk star riffs when we score a winning payline.
Being of the old school variety, this online slot doesn’t have an animated free spins bonus feature, but rather focuses on in-game base wins. This might seem off-putting, particularly for younger gamers used to fresh and fancy graphics lasering their way through our screens, but I am often surprised at the return that base game wins in classic slots will bring. The game’s Wild symbol, some crashing Wild Waves, always helps to ramp up our winnings as we roll the reels.
You know we ain’t never gonna survive…unless…we get a little crazy. I don’t know where I got that from. It just came to me. But it seems particularly apt when it comes to this Crazy Chameleons slot. It may not have bells, whistles, dings and dongs but it gets its groove on in all sorts of different ways. I mean just look at the face of that lizard! Priceless.
