The American professional skateboarder is the latest person to be ‘immortalised’ in an online slot game, as Play’n GO announce the release of their latest online slot which is titled Nyjah Huston – Skate for Gold.
A collaboration with 5th Planet Games who provide the 3D artwork in the game, the slot brings the skill and excitement of pulling off combos onto the reels with some exciting new features, and these are the game’s crowning achievements.
For those unaware, Nyjah Huston is the multiple gold medal winner at the World Skateboarding Championships and also happens to currently be the highest paid professional skateboarder. The popularity of skateboarding is such that it is to be introduced in the postponed Tokyo Summer Olympics, which are to be held next year due to the Coronavirus pandemic causing them to be put back a year.
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. Play’n GO CEO Johan Törnqvist spoke about the collaboration and unique nature of this latest slot: “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.”
