If you were born in the 1970s, or anywhere remotely in its vicinity, you'll know the name of Evel Knievel, the most bad-ass stunt rider the world has ever seen.
The American hero rode his motorbike over canyons, performed death-defying stunts in rockets, and became the poster boy for millions of wannabe stuntmen the world over.
But how would have Evel fared on a 5 reel, 20 pay-line video slot with a 10,000-coin jackpot?
The great man is the subject of slot developer NextGen Gaming's game, simply called Evel Knievel, and it features all manner of imagery associated with the all-American hero: US flags, photorealistic pics of the great man and his sideburns, motorbikes, rockets, crash helmets, and Evel's incredible white leather jumpsuit.
The Number One acts as the game's Wild, and can earn you the top whack of 10,000 coins if you get five across the reels. It substitutes for all symbols other than the bonus wheelie symbol and the Scatter, in this case the Evel Knievel logo. Three or more of those on the reels triggers up to 15 free spins, with all wins trebled.
The bonus symbol, when hit on reels 2 and 4, triggers a cool little bonus arcade game, whereby you click on the screen to make Evel jump over a ramp. There are two stunts to perform here: get them both and you'll be looking at a healthy bonus payout.
In terms of '70s authenticity, Evel Knievel is right up there alongside other great slots from the era: BetSoft Gaming's cheesy club-inspired slot, At the Copa comes instantly to mind, as does the Bally Technologies title Big Vegas, the slot celebrating the old-school Las Vegas scene. Evel Knievel is one of those slots you'd love to play in a big, loud casino, and it transfers pretty well to home too. Rev up your engines and let rip!
