Nyjah Huston Skate for Gold Online Slot Review
Progressive Jackpot: No
Provider: Play ‘N’ Go
If you’re a fan of extreme sports and the sport of skateboarding, then you are sure to be familiar with one of its current champions – Nyjah Huston. This five-reel slot game from Play ‘N Go is centered on this particular athlete and the sport of skateboarding. The background features a skate park with palm trees in the distance and the silhouette of a skater on one of the obstacles in the park.
The central character of this game is Nyjah Huston – the highest paid skateboarder around. This game tries to put you in his shoes, not as a highly paid athlete but as a skateboarder trying to perfect his craft. The symbols on the reels show him, items that are synonymous with his sport, and skaters in various stunts as well as moves that are difficult for new skaters to even think about trying.
The game’s grid is your standard 5x3 design used for most five-reel slots. Just like most slot games that come from this developer, the control panel is found at the bottom with the placement of the buttons in their usual locations. The spin button is at the lower right with the auto play button right beside it. The bet field is found in the middle of this panel and bets can be changed with the use of the plus and minus buttons on either side of this field.
Since the game revolves around skateboarding and the man of the hour in this sport, it’s but natural to see items and symbols that are synonymous with skateboarding on the reels. There are low-paying and high-paying symbols in this game. Low-paying symbols are not your typical top cards in a deck that you often see in most Play ‘N Go slots. The ones you see in this game are actually graffiti style letters that spell SKATE in colors that include purple, blue, red, yellow, and green.
High-paying symbols in this game are skateboarders performing a variety of moves that people who love this sport are sure to recognize. One symbol in this game features Nyjah’s smiling face. This game also has a few special symbols, such as the Wild symbol, which is represented by the letter W with Nyjah’s name on top.
This game has a free spins round but it isn’t triggered by the usual scatter symbol or other special symbol in the game. It is ingeniously triggered by the appearance of all 5 letters that spell Skate. When this happens, you get 12 free spins. During the free spins round, you stand to get more free spins and a Wildboard Respin, which is triggered by the appearance of all three of the tricks featured above the reels.
During the Wildboard Respin, the Wild symbols in the game can become stacked wilds with a skateboard suddenly appearing behind it after a skateboarder crosses the screen. This special feature can also bring with it a multiplier that appears on the skateboard as the reels spin. Also with the Wildboard Respin are two more free spins added to your total.
