Football Gladiators launched at Unibet

This seems to be a week when exclusive slot machine launches are rife. Several top online casinos have announced the launch of various slots at their domains, and Unibet Casino is certainly no different. This week, they announced the launch of StakeLogic’s Football Gladiators video slot.

Exclusive Launch

Football Gladiators is an exclusive launch for Unibet Casino, although nobody knows just how long that is likely to be the case. Also players based in the United Kingdom will not yet be able to play the game, which is unfortunate given the timing of the Euros.

Football Theme

The new video slot is slightly dated, with Rio Ferdinand, Toni Kroos, Andrea Pirlo, and Robin Van Persie appearing in the game. What is rather comical is that three out of these four players will not be appearing at the European Championships. Indeed, Rio Ferdinand has retired, Andrea Pirlo is not in the Italy squad, and Robin Van Persie’s Netherlands side failed to qualify. The release is a bit less dramatic than expected then.football_gladiators1

Bonus Features

The slot itself is played over 5 reels and 25 paylines, and it compatible with mobile, and computer users. Costing just 0.25 per spin and upwards, the game features a roman theme, mixed up with footballers. A Chariot Race bonus round can see players pick free spins, and multipliers, and if their chosen players win the chariot race, players will pocket extra cash prizes.

Take On the Beasts

A Battle Bonus can also see players take on beasts in the Colosseum. If they are successful, they can bag cash prizes and multipliers for direct hits.

Not Popular so Far

The truth is, Football Gladiators is cheesy, it is quirky, and it has not been well received thus far. That could be down to the fact that this slot is an exclusive title for the time being. It could be due to the fact that it contains stars who aren’t appearing in the euros, or it could be down to the fact that its features and theme is somewhat muddled. It could of course be down to all three.
