Evel Knievel to Ride onto the Internet
If you were thinking of a great person to base some games on then you couldn’t do much better than choose Evel Knievel.
The man who was born as Robert Craig Knievel in Butte, Montana had an astonishing career as a motorcycle daredevil. In fact, he was just as famous for the spectacular failures he suffered as much as the stunning successes.
Most Broken Bones Record
He still hold the Guinness Book of Records title for surviving the highest number of broken bones in a lifetime and spent 3 years of his life in hospital recovering from injuries. This famously included 29 days in a coma after he tried to jump over the fountain at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
Now his name is going to be used by UK online games developer Core Gaming Ltd in a new series of internet slots games. It is a 5 year deal and the games are said to focus on his legendary motorbike stunts.
Justin Chamberlain is the Managing Director of Core Gaming and he said that they plan to “do his fans proud” with the quality of the games they come up with. It seems that ideas for the games are well on the way to being turned into reality.
Evel died in 2007 at the age of 69 but his daughter Kelly was available to give the family’s opinion on the new casino games to come out soon. She said that her dad was “gambler his whole life” who believed that the people most worth hearing about were those who “took risks”.
