    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.

    Yes it is; the link is a nofollow but you will almost assuredly get click through traffic and haiving no follows as part of your backlink structure looks very natural to Google.

    You'll also get your site indexed/crawled more often. :)

    Wikipedia is a great source of links if you can get them even if they are nofollow, i am convinced they still give your site some authority and hopefully bring some good traffic too
