Adrenaline junkies pay attention, for Yggdrasil has released its first branded game in the form of thrills and spills game Nitro Circus. Based on the TV show of the same name, Nitro Circus offers massive stunts, crazy cars and the biggest names in the game. Fly through the air alongside some of your favourite death-defying riders and see if you too can beat the odds.
Nitro Circus offers up a slightly different format with five reels, four rows and twenty-five pay lines, all of which can be seen hovering above a misty, yet dramatic stage. In stark contrast, the symbols are a riot of colour, featuring helmets of various shapes and sizes, as well as superstars from the sport. To add to the excitement, there are symbols comprised of the letters N, I, T, R and O, and the full combination of these will start the Nitro Jump Feature. To round off this collection, there is also a bonus and wild symbol identified by a small grenade depicting the Nitro Circus logo.
To trigger Nitro-Blast mini game, two of those little bomb icons need to be landed in the base game. Players can then choose from between five bombs to reveal a prize that is either: the free spin mode with ten to thirty spins awarded, adding a vehicle to the player’s collection, a Nitro Wild where the grenade explodes turning up to nine positions into wilds, a free spin multiplier, and extra free spins. The latter two only occur during the free spins rounds.
The Nitro Free Spins require at least three of the Nitro Bombs to land on the reels. This will also trigger the previously mentioned mini game, with three bombs giving ten spins and one feature pick; four pay out twenty free spins and two features; and five allow thirty free spins and three features to activate.
The Nitro Jump Feature can either be started by collecting the five matching cars, or by landing each one of the letter icons on the reels to spell NITRO. If the latter occurs, then the player can choose between one of three bikes, each with different characteristics. The feature has three jumps and a boost jump. The first three are scored by judges and can be awarded up to 625 coins. In addition, as many as 6 of the following features can also be won: 25 coins, speed boost for last jump, multiplier on last jump, and ten free spins.
