The Nitro Circus slots game is produced by Yggdrasil Gaming. Yggdrasil Gaming take their name from Norse mythology where Yggdrasil is a magical tree where dragons lived and Odin sacrificed himself. Yggdrasil Gaming are one of the smaller slot development companies on the market at the moment – primarily focusing on lottery and scratch card game – and do not offer a full casino platform. They lease their games out to casinos using other platforms as a bolt on package. Yggdrasil Gaming publish the Return to Player/House Edge of their slots games within the game help file. The House Edge of Nitro Circus is 3.00%.
Nitro Circus is a 5 reel game that is 3 symbols high. The game uses 25 paylines, playing from left to right.
Wild – The Wild symbol is easy to spot as it is a gold symbol with Wild written across it. Wilds will substitute for all regular symbols.
Nitro Bombs – The “Nitro Bomb” symbols trigger the game’s Free Spins feature and the Nitro Blast mini game.
Nitro Jump– If you can reveal the word “NITRO” across the reels you will trigger the “Nitro Jump” bonus game. Before the game starts you need to choose which vehicle you want to take you across the jump. You can choose between each of the following: a motorbike, a scooter, a BMX, a sofa, a rocking horse, a mini car and a bath tub. Each of the vehicles has different stats that give you different advantages in the bonus. Some are bigger, so can use their size to pick up more icons. Others are quicker, so have more power to reach certain icons. Whilst others can perform better tricks, which essentially means they are more mobile, again, this allows you to pick up more icons. As you will have established you need to pick up as many icons as you can during your jump. You take your vehicle through a series of jumps and as you do so you try to pick up icons you go. Before you begin you do some warm up jumps where you gather coins, speed boosts, multipliers and collectable vehicle tokens before the main game begins. A full set of vehicle tokens awards one run on the Nitro Jump course. Collecting Speed Boosts will allow you a burst of Nitro, which will essentially increase how long you get to play the bonus and give you more time to pick up coins.
Free Spins – Collecting 3 or more of the “Nitro Bomb” symbols will award you with a certain number of Free Spins. 3 will award 10 Free Spins, 4 will award 20 Free Spins and 5 will award 30 Free Spins. Collecting one “Bomb” will trigger the “Nitro Blast Mini Game”, and will award you with either additional Free Spins, a multiplier or one of the Nitro Jump symbols.
Nitro Blast Mini Game – You trigger this bonus game by collecting 2 “Bombs” on the main game and 1 “Bomb” during the Free Spins. This is a click and reveal game where you can win vehicle icons, Free Spins, Wilds and multipliers.
Nitro Circus is the first X Games based slots game I’ve had the chance to play and as usual Yggdrasil have done a cracking job to turn it into a fun immersive slots game. The game plays out more like a computer game than just about any slots game I’ve played. There are options within the bonus sections, where you can choose your vehicle, based on what particular advantages you want to gain. These advantages will allow you to pick up the icons and coins you need more easily, but each advantage brings a disadvantage elsewhere. The game looks good, not just on the reels, but off them too. Each time you land a winning combination, tricks are performed in the background, another example of the hard work that has been put into this game. To top things off, we have a house edge that is offering decent value for money. This is a great game and one we have no hesitation to recommend.
