Overview

Novomatic is one of the largest Gaming Software Providers in the world, that has been primarily focusing on the Land based Casino Market, since  their inception in 1980. The company started out in Gumpoldskirchen, Austria, and their headquarters is still located there. To give you an idea of the scale of magnitude they represent: the Novomatic Group had a turnover of around EUR 2.3 billion, in both 2016 and 2017, employs more than 25.000 people worldwide, and has subsidiaries in 45 Countries. They have Business activities in more than 70 Countries, most of which are Land based. The Group operates around 260,000 Gaming terminals, better known as Virtual Lottery Terminals – or VLTs for short – around the world.

Aside from their Land based success, they have also started doing quite well in the Online Market, which comes as no surprise, seeing the popularity of their brand. Their Games have been making an appearance in more and more Online Casinos in the last few years, but were already available on the net since around 2008, which was shortly after Novo’s subsidiary Astra Games took over Greentube, the branch that is now responsible for the distribution of pretty much all of Novomatic’s Online content.

Novomatic Group

The Novomatic Group consists of several main companies, that are responsible for the production and development of various forms of high-tech gaming equipment and software, and actively operate several Electronic Casinos, Regular Casinos and Sports-betting Outlets throughout the world. They also provide services for a multitude of partners in the Lottery segment, and are amongst the handful of pioneers, that are now setting new standards in the world of Responsible Gaming and Corporate Responsibility.

Greentube Internet Entertainment Solutions

Greentube, as mentioned previously above, is the Online and Mobile branch of NOVOMATIC Interactive, and their omni-channel technology allows the convergence of Online, Mobile and even Land-based Games. Their impressive portfolio includes various Classic Slots, Table Games, Sports-betting, Live Dealer Games, AWP Reloaded Slots, Server Based Games, Social Casino Gaming, Bingo, Poker and more. Some of their Games have definitely achieved cult status, both online and offline, and one of their most successful Slots ‘Book of Ra’ has been copied so many times, that by now pretty much every other Software Provider has their own version, which just goes to show that they know how to make a good game!

Novomatic Games

Novomatic develops Games for various Land based platforms, of which the primary ones are listed below, with a few product examples added. Slowly but surely all their titles are being made available Online, but as of yet their Online offering is not quite complete. They have well over 400 Games, of which 329+ are Slots, but you’ll typically only find around 100 of those Online. Their Games include Linked Jackpots, Standalone Progressive Jackpots, various Bonus Mechanisms and more.

Pros

Broad range of excellent Games in the Land based and Online sector

Games Available in most Countries, including the USA

Cons

Not all of their Games are available Online

Most of their Online Slots are very High Variance - it is often established that it's either a quick bust, or a good winning run, and not much in between

Casinomeister's Verdict

Greentube – or Novomatic is solid as a rock when it comes to its presence in the industry. I have been to the Greentube offices in Vienna – very impressive.  And they are  available at many casinos. One thing to be aware of, make sure the casino that hosts Novomatic games is properly licensed in the EU or UK. For whatever reason, these games seem to be a target of software pirates, and there have been a number of casinos that have ripped off these games and are hosting them on their own server.
