Novomatic software providers got their start in the land-based casino market. They made land-based slot games. This Austrian based company was established way back in 1980. Since that time it has gone on to become one of the world’s largest gaming companies. Like many companies that used to specialise in the land-based arena they have slowly changed their focus onto the now booming online market. It was when they purchased Greentube Internet Entertainment Solutions in 1998 when they officially entered the online space. Novomatic have been able to transition their offline slot machine success onto the internet gaming scene.
