Novomatic Software

Novomatic and Greentube collectively have a catalogue of nearly 500 slot games. These games, such as the ones from the classic Book of Ra slot series, Candelas de los Muertos, and many others, are distinguished by engaging narratives, compelling bonus features, and high-quality graphics and sound. The games are custom-tailored to fit the diverse preferences of players in various regions, which is another testament to Novomatic’s ability to adapt.
Among the many features, the company has had a lot of success with Win Ways™ mechanics. This mechanic removes winning symbols after the combo has paid out, allowing more symbols to fall into place and possibly string more wins together.

There’s also the Diamond Mystery™ Jackpot slot series that gives players the chance to win up to 5,000 times their bet, one of the first standalone progressive jackpots for the interactive section of the company.

Novomatic API Integration

To effortlessly incorporate Novomatic’s top-tier games from its massive portfolio into any casino platform, SoftGamings’ unified API integration platform is the most efficient route. This one-time integration process not only unlocks the entire collection of Novomatic’s innovative games but also grants access to over 10,000 additional games from more than 250+ different software providers featured on our platform.


There are around 500 games on offer from Novomatic and its subsidiaries, many of which have been fan favourites for years. These are some of the best-performing titles in recent years.

Book of Ra

Book of Ra transports players to ancient Egypt and puts them in the role of Indiana Jones-type looking for riches beyond imagination. It’s a Novomatic classic, hailed as one of its best-performing titles in the catalogue. The game features five reels, nine paylines, and a thrilling Free Games feature with unique Expanding Symbols.
The feature gets triggered by landing three or more Book symbols, which initiate 10 Free Games with a randomly selected Expanding Symbol. This symbol can multiply its value across the win lines when it appears, promising substantial wins.

Lucky Lady’s Charm™ deluxe 6

Lucky Lady’s Charm™ deluxe 6

Lucky Lady’s Charm™ deluxe 6 is another video slot classic from Novomatic, boasting great success on game machines and digital slot entertainment. At the heart of the 6×10 slot game lies the ‘Lucky Lady’ symbol, functioning as a Wild, which substitutes for all except the ‘Hands’ (Scatter) symbol.

Notably, any win line featuring the ‘Lucky Lady’ sees its winnings doubled. The Scatter symbol stands out as it counts in any position and triggers 15 Free Games when appearing three or more times. These Free Games have the potential to triple winnings, and if players opt for the sixth reel, the rewards can be even more significant – up to six times the standard win. Activating the sixth reel via the Extra-Bet feature doubles the bet but opens the door to significantly higher wins.

Sizzling Hot™ deluxe!

Sizzling Hot™ deluxe reminds players of old-school slots with fruit symbols, stars, and lucky sevens that reigned supreme during the early stages of slot gaming and are still captivating players. No fancy and elaborate bonus games. Just classic fruits and hefty wins. This exciting fruit game has five reels and five fixed paylines that pay for combinations of a kind from left to right. However, the exception to that rule is the Scatter (Star), which pays in any position. Scatter wins are added to line wins, thus increasing the game’s payout potential.

Sizzling Hot™ deluxe!


Novomatic has pioneered a lot of technologies that are now found in most game cabinets and online casino games, starting with the multiplayer machine and ASIC (Applied Specific Integrated Circuit) hardware and going all the way to Greentube Plurius™, a server-based gaming solution for casino and VLT markets where a game is simultaneously launched across desktop, smartphone, tablet and iTV devices. There’s also the novoSDK toolkit that provides software support for the development of online casino games.

Mobile Gaming

All games from Novomatic’s interactive department are created using the latest HTML5 technology, which makes them accessible on all types of devices, regardless of their operating systems. All Android and iOS proprietary casino apps are supported as well.

Promotions & Bonuses

Novomatic is big on progressive jackpot bonus games. Namely, the Novoline machines such as Golden Link and Cash Connection, all feature linked jackpots. Multi-Level Mystery Progressives are supplied with games such as the ones from the Book of Ra™ theme, the Four Seasons Jackpot™, and the Tales of Darkness™ Jackpot. However, in addition to these jackpots and numerous in-game bonuses, operators who decide to integrate Novomati via SoftGamings’ API platform can also benefit from our own standalone bonus system with loyalty programs, deposit bonuses, and many other functionalities.


Novomatic uses the latest security features and firewalls in both its gaming cabinets and online products. For example, the Novovision system by Novomatic features a patented biometric technology that provides the most secure and innovative cashless experience on the market. The technology includes fingerprint and face recognition as a way of identifying registered users.
