CORE Gaming, the gaming industry’s leading developer of HTML5 and tablet casino games, has today announced that Betfair has launched “Evel Knievel”, a branded slot game that has been created by CORE Gaming and can be found within Betfair’s Arcade of games.

Evel Knievel, one of America’s greatest stunt riders and an international icon, is a 50 line game with a free spin feature and unlimited locked free spins.  Clever mathematics combined with feature rich graphics charting the exploits of the legendary stunt performer, promises players an exciting game experience which can be played via desktop and mobile.

In 2012, CORE Gaming was granted a five year exclusive contract to build online slot games around the brand by the Knievel estate and earlier this year and plan to roll the game out across the online gaming industry in 2014 across all leading platforms including Openbet, GTS, Leander, and new to market platforms such as Odobo. CORE are also planning to develop and deliver the Evel Knievel brand into more online variants for emerging markets such as the US, and for land based UK markets.

Commenting on the launch of Evel Knievel, Justin Chamberlain, CEO of CORE Gaming said, “We really enjoy creating games around themes that have already amassed a huge fan base.  Our job in this instance was to take a dare devil icon and recreate that energy and bravery into a truly thrilling slot game experience for players.  We are also very proud that this game sits within our portfolio of proprietary HTML5 casino games and believe this will be a huge hit with both our clients and players around the world.”

Niki Longmuir at Betfair commented “Betfair Arcade is hugely popular because it offers our players a huge breadth of top quality games.  A slot based around Evel Knievel is an entirely unique proposition and combine this with CORE Gaming’s expertise at delivering fantastic games, will ensure that this game will be a massive hit.”
