Amusnet has announced a partnership with legendary football player Hristo Stoichkov. By combining gaming and football, this collaboration celebrates the legacy of a true icon of the beautiful game, known for his dynamic playing style and intense competitive drive. 

Stoichkov, a name that resonates with the world’s golden football heritage, is among the 100 greatest players of all time. His exceptional talent earned him a spot at FC Barcelona in 1990 and, for five seasons, he thrived alongside superstars like Romário and Ronald Koeman. Stoichkov’s international impact was profound, winning him the prestigious Ballon d’Or in December 1994. He notably led Bulgaria to the Fifa World Cup semi-finals the same year and won the Golden Boot as the tournament’s top scorer.

Aside from his on-field achievements, Stoichkov’s bold personality and strong principles have made him a role model for generations, radiating a powerful aura of inspiration. He has been involved in various philanthropic activities and has also participated in campaigns against discrimination and racism in football, using his platform to promote inclusivity and equality. 

Capitalising on the football excitement around UEFA Euro 2024, Amusnet released a unique game, Stoichkov #8. With its football theme, immersive graphics and exciting features, the game captures the spirit of the sports event. The exhilaration of real matches is pictured on the reels of the slot through the thrilling free spins, buy bonus, expanding wild and never-ending action. 

“Hristo Stoichkov’s participation in this unique partnership goes beyond his legendary name” shared Ivo Georgiev, CEO of Amusnet. “His vast knowledge and expertise have elevated our collaboration and exceeded all expectations. Amusnet’s commitment to delivering top-notch gaming experiences worldwide has been reinforced through our work with him and we are eager to bring the excitement of football to a worldwide audience.”

“Football has always been more than just a sport to me; it’s a powerful force that inspires, motivates and brings people together. It embodies the values of teamwork, determination and passion, which are essential both in the field and in life. Thus said, I’m delighted to partner with Amusnet and I am confident fans around the globe will love the game we created together,” said Stoichkov.
