Hi all at CM!

I rarely post, but I came across something that got my heart racing a little bit yesterday.

Let me start by saying i'm a huge Novomatic fan and have played their games for over 20 years. Being from the UK, the majority of the gaming floor is made up Novos, so it's pretty much the only provider available land based (IGT are just too terrible to play). Novo games rarely get changed out and i'm always excited to see a new release and sad to see an old favourite disappear.

Moving to online, it's such a shame that they have only made a few classics from their catalogue available to play, just the usual suspects 'Charm, Ra, Dolphins', the current games being released by Greentube are absolute garbage IMO and are falling way behind other providers. I think they are more interested in the American market.

So, to get to the point of the thread, I was flicking through slots streams and I came across a streamer playing a classic Novo (Rich Witch), I couldn't believe my eyes, so did a quick search... nothing on Novomatic site, nothing on Greentube about this game release.

So I visited the casino site, which had a Curacao licence, unavailable to UK players. I created a fake account (i'm not stupid enough to deposit), purely just to see the game mechanics. From what I can tell, you're connected/synced up to a live Gaminator Terminal, you can choose which terminal to 'sit' at and you can play all games on that machine and interact with the machine as you would in a land based casino, and play classics that have long since gone from the UK.

So, question for people in the Industry...

Is this new?
Is this a studio setup or 'live stream' like roulette and blakckjack?
Is this something that will be brought to other casino operators?
Will it be available to the UK or just Europe?

It looks like they've put a bit of effort into this and again, this really excites me as a Novo fan - to be able play these games would be incredible.

Thanks for reading!

As far as I know, Novomatic doesn't cooperate with Curacao licenced sites, so if you see anything Novomatic related on Curacao sites it means it is a copy or simply fake.

There is a legit "live slot", not exactly the same tho and not more exciting than just playing the regular slot without someone squealing over it.

Buffalo Blitz Live by Playtech

Is this the thing where a host spins a slot for you? I never understood what the benefit of that was over just playing yourself.
