Stakelogic, the 3D slot development studio of Novomatic’s iGaming division Greentube, drew in the crowds at ICE with the launch of Football Gladiators, a game starring former Manchester United footballer Rio Ferdinand, who was on hand to oversee its launch.
Launched simultaneously for desktop, mobile and land-based, Football Gladiators is a 3-D, animated 25-line, 5×3 reel video slot that combines the ancient sport of gladiator fighting with modern football that allows players to chose their favourite footballers to fight against beasts in the Colosseum, race against The Dark Knight on the chariot race track plus much more in this new game. Starring alongside Rio, pumped up and in gladiator gear, were Dutch footballer Robin van Persie, German Toni Kroos and Italian Pirlo.
“The number of visitors and the huge positive response exceeded our expectations by far,” said StakeLogic CEO Ruben Visse. “This will form the basis for the further growth of our organization and gives a boost to the creativity and innovation in our team. Obviously Football Gladiators generated the most attention but we are also launching another 16 games, some using our core 3D technology but others using our revolutionary Slots 360° technology and advanced MOBi mobile gaming platform, which help us to differentiate the games from the competition.”
