I know 'em inside out LOL. I'm the same as Viktar...especially in land-based LOL. Depends what you like - high variance or low?
Hmmm...I'm a bit like you Simmo!....I don't mind high variance as long as the possibility of a monster hit is there .
The problem with Novo casinos like Star Games is that the payouts are excrutiatingly slow. Quasar are aslo a bit too slow but not as bad as Star. For UK and some Europeans there are more choices but for Aussies I'm not sure. I'm just in the process of getting country-aceptance lists from the Novo casinos as it happens but the data won't be here til next week at the earliest. MyBet are the worst as they only accept about 3 countries LOL. They will crop up at more casinos over time but for now there are year-long exclusive licences in place so choice is limited.
Book Of Ra Deluxe, Dolphins Pearl, Lucky lady's Charm and Katana are easily my favourites. Katana is very high variance. The thing about Novo slots is a) their bonus features are very innovative (Playtech started copying the expanding scatter thing from Novo) and b) it's very hard to get the bonus features but when you do, they can retrigger like crazy sometimes as more scatters are added to the reels in most cases. I had 150 spins on Dolphins pearl the other day for 600x (you get 15 initially).
For high variance players they are scarily addictive LOL. Think 'Great Blue' for an idea of variance.
We were chatting about this the other day.
Can you provide more info? What's the best payout time and best Casino currently hosting Novo games? Are they safe to play?
I know that Sky Vegas has got Book of Ra delux, I loved playing this at my local bingo until they changed machines again
You can try it out on demo on Sky Vegas, it's a 9 line slot game.
That's the "Classic" version: they also have the 10 line Deluxe version now too (same RTP on both now although the Classic was a whole 2% better when it was released there originally). Sky only have 4 Novo games (5 if you include the Astra subsiduary "Reel King" in fact) but it's a very good place to play.
I see you've added a link in your signature, much obliged thanks
Is Grosvenor Casino trustworthy, have you played here Simmo?
My sig's a "dynamic" sig. I'm a programmer by trade so I enjoy trying fancy stuff LOL. The standard sig contains the 2 links but it changes in a few threads around the forum (like this one) depending on the subject. In this case it detected the thread was about Novomatic and altered it accordingly
As for Grosvenor: yes very. It is the online casino of the land-based Grosvenor Casinos who are owned by Rank who, in turn, run Blue Square and the Mecca (Bingo) brands. I have played there regularly over the years and they are my first choice for Novo games.
my girlfriend and myself love novomatics. recently found 2 casino's of which we had never heared:
doxxbet and ovocasino
both need verification before you can start playing (better safe then sorry i guess) and both i deposited and won about 10x deposit.
what is nice about them is that a bonus, like welcome/2nd dep, isnt combined with deposit, but you get it when you lose or withdraw your deposit(winnings)
I used to play Victor Cahndler...up until about a month ago, when games there now have pop-ups saying 'we're sorry but this game is prohibited in your jurisdiction'
Hmmm, do any other CM members know anything about these casinos? I did a very fast google search, couldn't find much - but I've been looking for novomatic casinos for a while!
Wondering whether to register at OVO or not.
They offer a 100% bonus, 50x bonus amount (so pretty standard 25x d+b)
