Swedish online casino games developer Play’n GO has now returned to announce the launch of its latest five-reel and ten-payline Nyjah Huston: Skate for Gold series, hot on the heels of launching its Cat Wilde and the Doom of Dead video slot.
The Vaxjo-headquartered innovator used an official press release on Thursday to reveal that its new video slot was created in collaboration with Danish compatriot 5th Planet Games and is about American skateboarding superstar Nyjah Huston ‘s exploits.
Play’n GO claimed that the mobile-friendly Nyjah Huston: Skate for Gold represents the first time they have ever worked with a professional athlete and that the video slot is designed to capture the more conventional origins of skateboarding by ‘replicating the colourful and artistic graffiti style’ that has been associated with the sport for many decades. In addition, the developer reported that the ‘highly stylised’ game has a return-to-player ratio of 96.2 percent and ‘brings the skill and excitement to pull off combos on the reels.’
For a total of six gold medals to his credit from the World Skateboarding Championship, Huston, 25, is widely considered one of the best skateboarders of all time. The native of California might very well contribute to this outstanding image in Tokyo next year when his sport makes its inaugural debut at Summer Olympics.
Johan Tornqvist, Play’n GO’s chief executive, used the news release to pronounce Nyjah Huston. Skate for Gold also offers ‘some exciting new features’ serving as its ‘crowning achievements.’ He clarified that the Skate and Wildboard bonus developments of the three-row series encourage viewers to amass eponymous icons in order to unleash animated skateboarders that leave wild tracks in their wakes as they jump and flip through the reels.
The Statement from Tornqvist read: “We knew we wanted to work with the best when creating this game and Nyjah represents that. 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.”
