StakeLogic, the specialist 3D slot subsidiary of NOVOMATIC’s iGaming arm Greentube, has launched a new title featuring real-world footballers including Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand.

Produced through a cooperation between StakeLogic and NOVOMATIC, the Football Gladiators slot was launched simultaneously across desktop, mobile and land-based gaming machines at last week’s ICE Totally Gaming conference in London.

One of its major characters, former England and Manchester United captain Rio Ferdinand, attended the launch, signing autographs for customers.

The studio's latest title features vibrant graphics and high-quality animations of high-profile footballers, and is described by the supplier as one of its best-received titles at the conference.

“The number of visitors and the huge positive response exceeded our expectations by far,” StakeLogic CEO Ruben Visse said. “This will form the basis for further growth of our organization and gives a boost to the creativity and innovation in our team.”
