The master daredevil who defined a generation of pop icons in the 70s is back. And this time he bring’s more than just stars and stripes.
This Evel Knievel mobile slot review will be difficult to write. Not because it’s a bad game, but because it will be hard to remain objective. Our first instincts are to love this high volatility slot. It’s Evel freaking Knievel. Hand us a beer and some burning rings of fire and we will watch this slot spin just for the sake of it. The fact it looks fantastic on iPads and tablets helped our childlike glee when we saw the man himself ride across our screen on a motor bike.
So let’s start with the cons. Well. Let’s see… the sounds, whilst pretty awesome during the free spins rounds, lacks lustre during the actual game play. The guitar rifts upon winning might be fun at first, but after a couple of wins, it gets a little repetitive. You have no choice but to bet 50 lines, whether you like it or not – meaning that the minimum bet of this ‘penny slot’ is actually 50 pence/cents. Although technically described as a video slot, the only time you’ll see any jumping graphics will be during the bonus feature. It is, from our standard, fairly high in volatility, which some people might not enjoy.
But we don’t give an owls hoots about any of that. It’s Evel freaking Knievel. The producer of this fun slot tried to bring everything that the man stood for in one good looking motorbike themed slot. From rocket ships to the trademark jumping motorcycles the white gloves and the cane. It’s a smart slot made upon the franchise of the best known stunt man world wide.
We will say this though – from our own game play we found that you will need to bet at least £/$/€2 to get any decent returns. And if you want to bet more, boy are you in for a pleasant surprise, as with a 250 maximum bet, this should keep the high rollers rolling. And with a possible 250,000 jackpot up for grabs, you can bet there will be a few big slot spenders looking to cash in on this slot.
We only wished they could have granted us a few more bonus features, or even a gamble feature, to keep the games excitement constant, as there are times in the game when it lulls a little. That said, even before jumping 50 stacked cars, there would be a hush in the arena, the crowd waiting with baited breath as the iconic American daredevil flew into the air in a death defying leap.

Free Spins and Extra Scatters: If you get 3 scatter symbols anywhere on reels 1, 2 or 3, you will trigger the 'locked free spins round'. Those reels will just keep on spinning until the scatter symbols appear anywhere on reel 3 only. Rare but exciting feature - much like the man's most daring stunts.
We have no doubt that our review will be controversial to many. Some won't see what the fuss is about, and unless you have an affinity for that 70s guitar riff and iconic cool, we concede you might have a point. You'll need a little patience to get this mobile slot to pay out big, and with only one big bonus feature it might be too slow in pace for some.
But we loved it. With it's Harley Davidson cool and guitar riff reminiscent of your favourite cop show of the 70s, this mobile slot captures this era and the man himself perfectly. All in all, it creates a fun game to immerse yourself into and while away the hours on your tablet or mobile.
