Evel Knievel Slots

Evel-KnievelThe action in Evel Knievel can be a lot of fun, but that’s what’s expected of it, this being a WGS slot machine which is inspired by one of the most famous daredevils and stuntsmen of the 20th century. He was born in 1938 and passed away in 2007, and during his long career he tried over 75 jumps with a motorcycle over long distances, and even one across a canyon. He had 433 bone fractures during his long career, the most that a human got over the course of a lifetime.

Evel Knievel is a 20 payline game, which has 5 reels and symbols with wild or scatter abilities. They can bring you free spins, multipliers and even bonus games. Its most impressive prizes will bring you back up to $100,000.

Features of Evel Knievel

If you’re lucky enough to trigger one of the features of Evel Knievel, you will either get a wild symbol that doubles prizes, a scatter symbol which pays very well and which triggers free spins, or another one which brings you a bonus game.

A No 1 with an American flag motif is the image you’re going to see whenever a wild symbol makes an appearance here. This symbol is much more useful as a regular symbol forming its own combination, because it pays the most in this game, up to 10,000x. However, most of the time you will get help from it in the form of a substituting symbol. Wilds are capable of replacing regular symbols in combinations, and at the same time they apply 2x multipliers so that prizes can double. They will not replace bonus icons or scatters though.

Another very impressive prize that you can get in Evel Knievel comes from the Evel Logo symbol, one of the two scatters that the game offers. Having up to five such Logos present will bring you up to 500 times the bet value as a prize, which is on the high side for a scatter, most slots giving you only 100x or 200x.

Free Games Feature

Besides getting prizes from this scattered Logo, you also get the free spins to activate if a minimum of three symbols contribute. You receive 15 free spins and a 3x multiplier which only applies to the original free spins. If there are any that are retriggered, the multiplier no longer works on them.

Bonus Game

A bonus game is offered as well, requiring the Motorcycle Jump icon, which will be present on the 2nd and the 4th reels at the same time when this happens. Only those two reels can get this symbol. Payouts can be improved with the help of multipliers, which will consider the number of lines that go through the symbols to decide by how much they increase their value.

Betting options and jackpots

The betting system only needs one coin for each active payline. You can modify its value in the range of $0.01 to $10, so with all the lines covered you may have to spend up to $200 per spin if you want to get the most out of it.

Rewards offered in Evel Knievel go as high as 10,000 coins normally, with cash values of $100,000. There is a way to triple that amount, but it requires you to get the top jackpot while in free spins mode.

Design and symbols

The Evel Knievel influence isn’t the only one you’re going to see in this game. There are a lot of motorcycle and stunt related images, and everything is themed around the American flag, which even gets its own symbol. Everything else has the flag on it, from the experimental jets, to the costumes, bikes and even the trucks that Evel jumps over. It’s a decent looking game, but it will not be considered a modern title by anyone.


Symbols: No 1 Wild (wild, 10,000 coins), Evel Logo (scatter, 500x bet), Motorcycle Jump (bonus), Evel’s Costume (500 coins), Trucks (400 coins), Evel Saluting (200 coins), Jet (150 coins), American Flag (125 coins), Evel’s Helmet (100 coins), American Heart (75 coins) and Ring of Fire (50 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

It’s got a fairly dated design, but the features and prizes are solid, and the game is fun enough if you’re not bothered by the graphics. I’m especially a fan of the jackpot the game offers its players.

Evel Knievel, The Daredevil

A very well known entertainer and daredevil, Evel Knievel was actually called Robert Craig Knievel by his full name. He lived between 1938 and 2007, surviving numerous motorcycle crashes, a total of 433 bone fractures (more than anyone else in the world) and eventually dying because of a pulmonary disease when he was 69 years old. He was especially well known for his stunts that included long jumps between ramps, going over trucks or even a canyon on one occasion.

Evel Knievel can be found at any WGS casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
