Based on the ultimate 1970s daredevil, Evel Knievel Road To Vegas is a 5 reel, 25 payline slot from Core Gaming. Featuring high-end design, it’s also packed full of features include a pick ‘em round, trail bonus, a super volatile jump feature and 2 free spins rounds. Rev up from between 25p and £500 per spin.
The design in Evel Knievel Road To Vegas is nicely done – set against a desert backdrop and watched over by Evel himself, the reels include A to 10 playing cards as well as Color Me Lucky, Vegas and number 1 signs. The top symbol is the Evel Knievel logo – land 5 of these on a single payline and you’ll win 200 times your total stake. That same award is on offer if you manage to land 5 wilds in a single payline – the flaming wild replaces all other symbols apart from the bonus.
Finding 3, 4 or 5 bonus symbols on the same spin will get you an award equal to 5, 20 or 100 times your total stake. It will also trigger the bonus round. Spin the wheel to see which of the 5 bonus features you’ve been awarded:
Jump For Glory feature – this highly volatile round recreates Knievel’s famous 1975 Wembley show where he attempted to jump over a line of London buses. You’ll get 3 tries here to grab 1 of the cash values that’s hanging above the buses.
Route 66 feature – join Evel on a road trip on America’s most famous highway. Guide him across the ramps, pits and gauntlets en route to collect cash prizes.
Memory Bank feature – this is a pick me round. Choose photos from Evel’s scrapbook to win cash prizes.
Skycycle feature – here you’ll be awarded 15 free spins. Evel will roar across the reels in his machine and turn symbols wild. The extra wilds remain locked in place throughout the feature.
To The Limit feature – here you’ll be awarded an undefined number of free spins which continue until you land the Stop symbol on reel 3. Each free spin comes with a random multiplier boost too.
On any losing spin, Evel can get out of his chair and deliver a secondary extra – he’ll either set fire to some symbols and turn them wild to create a winning line or tap the edges of the reels to change a loser into a winner or trigger the bonus round.
We managed to trigger the features regularly. Overall, we’d put the variance in the medium range. Evel Knievel probably won’t mean anything to younger players. For slots fans of a certain age, he’ll bring back waves of nostalgia. This slot version is an entertaining take on the famous showman’s devil may care lifestyle and the range of extras make it worth a closer look.
