While the iconic Tony Hawk may have helped to bring skateboarding into the mainstream, very few people have been able to help it stay there better than Nyjah Huston.
The multiple-time world champion has been an icon in the sport for years now, and today, we’re going to be taking a look at how his legacy has been made to look in the Nyjah Huston: Skate for Gold slot game.
The usual reel layout of 5×3 is there for all to see with players having 10 paylines to work their way through. All of the symbols on the boards are themed, too, from the letters spelling out ‘SKATE’ to skateboard trick shots and Nyjah Huston himself.
The return to player (RTP) percentage is always likely to be considered an important piece of the puzzle by punters around the globe regardless of which slot they play, and the same is going to be true for the Nyjah Huston: Skate for Gold slot game. The reported RTP here comes in at 96.20% which is slightly below the standard average, but with medium volatility, smaller and more consistent wins are definitely on the cards.
You only have to pay $€£0.10 to get started with the minimum stake before riding up to a nice maximum stake of $€£100, and from there, winning 5,000x your initial stake is on the table.
The theme is smooth, the gameplay is even smoother, and the design work has been done in a comic book sort of style that we really do enjoy. Everything about the visuals are laid back and fun, which is exactly what a slot needs to be these days.
The Wild is a stylised symbol that can even expand into a skateboard, holding the potential to cover an entire reel and maybe even turn into a golden Wildboard, which provides multipliers of up to 10x. It can also replace all other slots outside of the gold S-K-A-T-E scatter letters.
The golden SKATE symbols landing on each reel in succession will trigger the Skate Free Spins feature, kickstarting with 12 free spins. The Combo Meter is active on every spin and displays three different tricks – and if you land them, Nyjah then activates the aforementioned Wild-board Respin which is where the expanded wilds come into play.
The Nyjah Huston: Skate for Gold slot game pays tribute to the man himself in style with a really slick slot that provides entertainment for hours on end. The winnings are decent, the bonus features are cool and you can just feel the essence of Nyjah in pretty much every area of this game.
Sure, the theming is going to be a bit too much for some people, but it still creates drama and a sense of competition that will always leave you wanting to reach the very top.
