    May be a dumb question here but being on this side of the water we don't see these games in our brick and mortar casinos, my question, why are these so alike, who ripped off who or are they somehow joined?

    Well Novomatic is well established within the industry.
    Amatic doesn't ring any bell here. :rolleyes::)

    Novomatic ad EGT are very similar but I've not played Amatic games myself so can't comment. Novomatic probably came first -in fact, any developer that resembles Novomatic probably came second as Novomatic has been around for years. The games are also sometimes badged as "Novoline" or Admiral or "Novostar" depending on where you live.

    EDIT: just played Amatic's Blue Dolphin and yes: uncannily similar to Novomatic's original 5-line Dolphin's Pearl! I am wondering if this is like the Aristocrat / Ainsworth scenario where an owner left one and formed the other company.

    There are a lot of clonish games, even down to the mechanics and retriggers on certain games, Amatic states lots of land based games....who knows, I never see either here in the land based and that includes Vegas which I go 4 or 5 times a year.

    When I went to Budapest a few years ago I visited a casino that had very similar games. I don't remember if they were Amatic or not but they were almost Novomatic clones with subtle differences. In some Central and Eastern European land casinos you find some familiar slots with different brand names. An example of this is the aforementioned Admiral slots which are popular there (indeed, even Admiral-branded casinos) but which are Novomatic games.

    I've never seen a Novo game in Vegas but breaking in there can't be easy and I'm not so sure their retro style would suit America to be honest. In South America you'll find the Novo games (regularly badged as "Novostar" apparently).

    Novomatic is old and popular softare - Amatic not so popular like Novomatic but this is separate software not any clon or fake copy of novomatic just separate slot software - Probably popular in few countries in basline casinos.

    ( About fake copy of Novomatic slots - then 75% online casinos from russia have fake copy of novomatic / playtech / sometimes artistocrat slots - they even make copy few slots from net ent )
