In Depth: The ultimate circus just came to town!


Yggdrasil Gaming’s brilliance never wains, and here they’ve done it again. This is a real treat for fans of Nitro Circus and fans of fantastically-built slots alike. An adrenaline-fuelled slice of motocross stunt action, under the legendary Nitro Circus brand brings you the hottest stars of this genre, along with a real chance of winning some big bucks too. A host of bonus features, including a nail-biting Nitro Jump feature sees you soaring through the air on any one of the seven vehicles to collect cash and further features.

Set in the familiar arena fans will know and love, this slot is truly a visual treat. Symbols across the reels include three different helmets and four different riders. The red hatted rider is the highest value symbol, giving you 50x your stake for five across a payline. Get three or more symbols across a payline from reel one to win, and as expected, wilds replace all other regular symbols.

Simply the bomb: A wealth of hot features
The Nitro Bomb symbol is pretty damn important here. Get on the same spin in the base game and the the Nitro-Blast Mini-game gets triggered - it’s a great feature.

Choose one of the five bombs to reveal these prizes:

  • Free Spins feature – with between 10 and 30 free spins*

  • Adds 1 vehicle to your collection – you’ll add a couch, wheel chair, toy car or bathtub*

  • Nitro Wild – Nitro Bombs explode to turn between 2 and 9 symbol positions into wilds*

  • Free Spin Multiplier – increases the multiplier by 1, 2 or 3 (in the Free Spins feature)*

  • Extra Free Spins – gives you 1, 2 or 3 more free spins (in the Free Spins feature)*

    Get three or more Nitro Bomb symbols in the base game and enter the Nitro Bombs free spins feature.

    Nitro Bomb scatters will get you the following:

    • 3 Nitro Bombs will give you 10 free spins & 1 feature pick*

    • 4 Nitro Bombs will give you 20 free spins & 2 feature picks*

    • 5 Nitro Bombs will give you 30 free spins & 3 feature picks*

      Feature picks found in the Nitro-Blast Mini-game give you extra free spins, multipliers, additional wilds and vehicles for enhanced wins.

      Vehicles are important within this game, collecting five identical vehicles triggers the Nitro Jump feature. Each with their own specific characteristics, the vehicle you collect will have a direct bearing on your winnings. Impress the judges with some cool tricks and see your cash prizes rise, but the size and limitations of your vehicles will ultimately determine your fate.Vehicles with better boost will get higher multipliers.

      Here is a list of vitals from Yggdrasil’s website:

      • Bathtub – tricks 3/5, size 2/5, boost 5/5*

      • Armchair – tricks 2/5, size 3/5, boost 5/5*

      • Toy Car – tricks 2/5, size 5/5, boost 5/5*

      • Rocking Horse – tricks 5/5, size 4/5, boost 1/5*

      Get the letters NITRO across the reels in a single spin during the base game to enter the Nitro Jump feature. Then choose from the following vehicles:

      • FMX – tricks 3/5, size 2/5, boost 3/5*

      • BMX – tricks 2/5, size 3/5, boost 1/5*

      • Scooter – tricks 2/5, size 5/5, boost 3/5*

        *Information courtesy of Yggdrasil website

        Three stunt jumps and one final Boost Jump will follow. Stunt jumps get judged, with scores between 0.5x and 62.5x your stake. So, make sure those tricks are good! Within this stunt group there are six prizes to be won, including 2.5x your stake wins, a speed boost for the final jump, a multiplier for your final jump or ten free spins in the Free Spins feature. You can also add a manual speed boost during that final jump, but be careful, as it could end in tears and a broken wallet when you crash out and lose those sweet multipliers.

        Bitcasino overview
        This game, what can we say? Easily the best thing we’ve seen this year, in an industry that has finally realised the potential in fusing traditional slots with video games. Esports is huge right now, and it seems that Yggdrasil are not planning to hang around to find out if there’s potential in this marriage. Just sit back, grab a beer/coffee/smoothie and experience the future.
