Play’n GO have teamed up with global skateboard superstar Nyjah Huston and 5th Planet Games to launch their latest slot title Nyjah Huston – Skate for Gold.
Widely considered one of the most successful skateboarding athletes ever, Nyjah Huston is a 6-time World Skateboarding Champion, and the slot celebrates his talent on a board.
Skateboarding has become an increasingly popular sport over the years and will be introduced into the 2021 Olympics, a testament to the level of competition and skill that it has reached. The game aims to capture its more traditional skate park roots and is highly stylized, replicating the colorful, artistic graffiti style that has become synonymous with skateboarding for decades.
The slot brings the skill and excitement of pulling off combos onto the reels with some new features, and these are the game’s crowning achievements. Both features, SKATE and Wildboard, challenge players to complete combos with Nyjah’s game symbols, which will release an animated Nyjah onto the grid as he kicks and flips across the reels, leaving a trail of Wilds in his wake.
This slot marks a first-time collaboration with a major athlete for Play’n GO, and is a combination not often seen in the slot arena.
"We knew we wanted to work with the best when creating this game and Nyjah represents that," said Play’n GO CEO Johan Törnqvist. "This is a theme very rarely explored in the world of slots, and it certainly hasn’t been approached from this angle before. But that’s a part of our commitment to bringing new gaming experiences to players, and new audiences to slot gaming."
