Casino games developer Yggdrasil Gaming has agreed an exclusive partnership with action sports collective Nitro Circus to develop its first ever branded game.

The extreme sports-themed online slot will feature action-packed images of Nitro Circus members, including co-founder Travis Pastrana, the motorsports competitor and stunt daredevil who travels around the world with his friends riding dirt bikes, base jumping and performing stunts.

The launch of the slot game will coincide with Nitro Circus' new You Got This tour, which comes to Europe later this year and will hold events in six different countries during November and December.

"Yggdrasil would not take the leap into the branded games space without the perfect partner, and we've found just that with Nitro Circus," said Yggdrasil Gaming CEO Fredrik Elmqvist. "Travis and Nitro Circus have a reputation for revolutionising their field; you only need to attend a show or watch their original content to see they are unparalleled in their excellence.

"This slot will introduce Nitro Circus fans to the thrills of online casino, and similarly bring the high-octane action of the arena to casino players. It will be a fantastic way for operators to acquire new customers. We are excited to team up with them and take the world by storm with this ground-breaking new release coming later this year."

Nitro Circus president Andy Edwards commented: "We are proud to be partnering with Yggdrasil, the leading creative force in their field, in the first ever Nitro Circus slot game. We are working closely with the Yggdrasil team and are looking forward to unveiling a game that delivers all the excitement our fans have come to expect from Nitro Circus."
