Armadillo Studios has announced the upcoming release of its first branded slot, featuring the famous Brazilian MMA champion Amanda “The Lioness” Nunes.


The new title, The Lioness, will be live on August 2 and it will increase the studio’s reach of new player bases and demographics.

The slot will be launched after the title rematch with Julianna Pena on July 30 in Dallas, where Nunes is set to regain her title as the UFC bantamweight champion. The slot captures Amanda Nunes’ successful career by taking the players to the UFC cage. They can experience the world of MMA fighting through various interactive mechanics, a unique Fight Feature, free spins, a Lioness Link bonus, and a Fortune Bet mode that upgrades Nunes’ punching power.

The smooth gameplay, great soundtrack and animations create a captivating slot showcasing a true champion with many wins under her belt.

David Stoveld, COO of Armadillo Studios, says: “As we make strides in our US market expansion, we realise the importance of branded content. We are thrilled to finally be ready to release a slot centred around a true, one-of-a-kind MMA icon.

"The Lioness slot has really come together and we are proud of the final game product as well as the opportunity to work alongside the legendary Amanda Nunes.”

Amanda Nunes’ global presence will significantly boost Armadillo Studios’ reach in the localised US market and provide some well-needed gender balance to the casino vertical.
