🔔 Who are Novomatic?
Novomatic was founded in Austria by businessman and billionare Johann Graf back in 1980. It is one of the oldest and longest running international gambling companies. Novomatic made its name back in the days by providing land-based casinos with classics such as Book of Ra, Lucky Lady's charm and Chicago.
When Novomatic realized online gaming was starting the outgrow the land-based market, they acquired the Greentube studio which had been founded in 1998 as Dürrschmid&Reisinger OEG. In spite of this, the venture into the iGaming market has been half hearted and the availability of Novo slots is quite low.
Although Novomatic focuses mostly on land-based casinos, but new online slots are constantly being developed. While an effort is being made to develop something more modern, it's still the classic line of slots that draws the most attention. Novomatic slots share very similar traits and are easy to differentiate due to the characteristics of the looks and sound.
Novomatic offers slots of different variance, but the most popular ones are those of high variance such as Book of Ra Deluxe, Captain Venture, Rumpel Wildspins, Lord of the Ocean, Lucky Lady's Charm Deluxe, Book of Maya and Dolphin's Pearl Deluxe. These are games that can go many spins without a single bonus, and with pretty much all potential being allocated to the bonuses, it can be painful to chase a bonus. However, compared to many other slot providers, the bonuses tend to pay quite well and 100-200x wins are not unusual. In fact, Novomatic slots have the highest bonus wins on average of all slot providers. In games such as Book of Ra it is possible to land 5000x wins on single spins in the bonus and on Captain Venture a wild line in the bonus gives a return of 8000x.
