Fresh from being certified to offer its titles to iGaming operators in the Canadian province of Ontario and the Armadillo Studios enterprise of Maltese innovator EveryMatrix Software Limited has announced the upcoming debut of its first branded video slot in the six-reel The Lioness advance.
The American firm used an official Tuesday press release to detail that its newest 40-payline video slot is to be themed around Brazilian professional mixed martial arts champion Amanda ‘The Lioness’ Nunes (pictured) and will be made available to iGaming operators around the world from August 2. The Miami-headquartered developer also proclaimed that the mobile-friendly game is destined to increase its reach into ‘new player bases and demographics’ while simultaneously allowing it to ‘provide some well-needed gender balance’ to the online casino vertical.
United States-facing Armadillo Studio asserted that the coming four-row The Lioness video slot will offer ‘smooth gameplay, a great soundtrack and captivating animations’ alongside a theme showcasing ‘a true champion with many wins under her belt.’ The innovator went on to pronounce that the game has been designed to capture Nunes’ very successful career and transports players to the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) world via ‘various interactive mechanics’ including potentially-lucrative Fight and Lioness Link bonus features as well as a Fortune Bet mode that can upgrade the protagonist’s punching power.
Established only last summer, Armadillo Studios has already released its five-reel Queen of Egypt: Exotic Wilds and 15 Armadillos video slots while holding partnerships with several prominent iGaming domains including BetVictor.com, 1XBet.com and Fantasino.com. The company’s coming medium volatility The Lioness game is moreover destined to come with a 93.79% return to player ratio alongside scatter symbols and a free spins bonus.
David Stoveld serves as the Chief Operations Officer for Armadillo Studios and he used the press release to declare that The Lioness will be premiered just three days after Nunes attempts to regain her UFC bantamweight title via a rematch against reigning American champion Julianna Pena in Dallas, Texas. The executive additionally described the 34-year-old central character as ‘an ambitious fighter who doesn’t show weakness’ while her reputation as ‘one of the best mixed martial arts ground wrestlers’ allows her to go ‘toe-to-toe with the world’s most skilled fighters.’
