Based in Austria, Novomatic’s beginnings involved the development of Slots for the land based casino market but it wasn’t long before the company’s reach stretched worldwide including its online debut. Founder Johann Graf surely had no idea where the company would end up when he started it in 1980. Not only has Novomatic moved beyond Austrian borders but most casinos throughout Europe feature its games.
Novomatic acquired Astra Games Limited in 2004, which helped propel it forward into the UK. Both the UK and US markets aw the first of its products in when the company began providing equipment and gaming machines to casino operators.
