Online slots are hugely popular and there are now countless studios producing new and exciting titles. But there are also some industry stalwarts who have been around for many years and show no sign of shifting over. 

And one of these slot big guns is Novomatic. 

Founded in 1980 in Austria, Novomatic has enjoyed incredible success and is responsible for producing some of the most popular slots, such as the Book of Ra. 

Who Are Novomatic?

Novomatic has been in the slots industry since 1980, when they were producing games for land casinos, frequently under the name of Admiral Casino. Advancing technology meant that Novomatic was one of the first betting companies to produce touchscreen technology, taking their land slot machines to the next level. 

They made the jump to digital entertainment in 2010 when they bought GreenTube, an online provider. From 2010 onwards, Novomatic continued to make more acquisitions and formed partnerships that strengthened its online product range while also maintaining its land casino presence. 

Currently, Novomatic operates in approximately 50 countries around the world. It also has a successful online slot provision using a variety of brand names, including Novomatic, Greentube, and Admiral Casino. 

Novomatic is fully authorised and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission. It's also licensed in Alderney, Malta, and Gibraltar, and it's certified by eCOGRA. 

What Do They Offer?

Novomatic has a phenomenal provision in land casinos but also online. Their main focus is slots, which we’ll look at shortly. 

They also offer a range of table games, including live dealer play. This includes baccarat, poker, blackjack, roulette, sic bo, and more. 

Novomatic Video Slots

Novomatic has an impressive portfolio of video slots, with both classic and modern titles. Their slot titles aren't on par with studios such as Yggdrasil visually, but the simple, unfussy style appeals to many. 

All levels of volatility are available on Novomatic slots, but the high volatility titles are the ones that are the most popular. The simple structure means that bigger payouts are often reliant on triggering the bonus, which can take some time - and stretch budgets. Despite this, the average Novomatic bonuses payout is one of the highest of all slot studios. 

The Book of Ra is arguably Novomatic’s biggest success because it didn’t just spawn a series, it inspired a whole genre of games from other studios. The “Book of…” slots are now countless, and all follow the structure originally created by Novoamtic in Book of Ra. 

The five-reel Book of Ra was released in 2005, but it’s not the only popular Novomatic slot. Other top titles include:

Sizzling Hot

An online version of the popular Novomatic land casino game, Sizzling Hot is a 5x3 fruit-themed slot. As a classic game, there aren’t any bonus features or free spins, but players can win up to x1000 in this retro-style title. 

Lucky Lady’s Charm Deluxe

Lucky Lady’s Charm Deluxe includes 5x3 board and 10 paylines and offers players a high volatility. The theme is fortune and luck, with simple graphics depicting this. With free spins, multipliers and a Gamble option, it’s possible to win up to a potential x9000 on this Novomatic slot.
