UK developer CORE Gaming has released Evel Knievel Road to Vegas with operator Sky Vegas, the studio’s latest title featuring the legendary motorcycle daredevil.
The 25-line slot comes with five bonus features and offers player a maximum payout of £250,000, with a theoretical return to player of 94.36 per cent.
It is the second Evel Knievel-themed game to be released by CORE, with the first rolled out in 2013.
In the game Knievel sets up camp on a Nevada roadside on his way to Vegas, and reminisces of famous stunts such as his jumps at Wembley Stadium and the Grand Canyon, as well as flicking through photos from his career.
Its special feature are triggered by up to five ‘star’ scatter symbols landing anywhere on the reels. Once a player activates the bonus round a feature reel is spun, allowing them to randomly select a round.
The first, Sky Cycle, lets players use Knievel to drive along Route 66, jumping off ramps and passing obstacles to win prizes, while interacting with the screen to make him go faster.
In Memory Bank, players choose eight pictures from his most famous stunts to uncover prizes, while finding hidden stars allows them to secure larger wins.
To The Limit is a free spin feature that awards an unlimited number of random free psins, with a random multiplier assigned to any winning combination as the rider revs his engine to make the reels keep spinning.
The final, volatile, feature, Jump For Glory replicates Knievel’s famous Wembley jump, giving players three changes to win big. He performs the jump three times, trying to collect cash values that float above a line of buses, winning that sum if the lands the bike.
The game also includes two reel modifiers which trigger randomly within the base game. Even if a player seems to have a losing spin, Knievel can jump from his seat to strike the reels, setting of a respin, or pull a level to set off pyrotechnics and change symbols to wilds.
“CORE is very proud to present our second game under the Evel Knievel brand,” the developer’s creative director Simon Rideout said. “We have really pushed the devices to their limits on this production, using our new particle engine wherever possible, also experimenting with physics, device vibration and animation very rarely seen on mobile devices using HTML5.
“Our first release of Evel Knievel was a major success for us and we are certain this will follow suit.”
