Company Overview and History
Launched in 1980, Novomatic is available in 50 countries and exports its gambling products to 80 states. In 2015, its turnover exceeded €3.9 billion. Novomatic is successful because it operates on a dual strategy—as an operator of regular and electronic casinos and sports betting outlets and producer of topnotch gambling equipment and as a lottery service and technology partner.
Novomatic has been around for just 35 years, but has already become a top player in the European gambling industry in particular and the international gambling industry in general. The company, which was founded as Novomatic Automatenhandels GmbH in 1980, expanded all over Germany, Netherlands, France, and Switzerland the following year.
By 1993, Novomatic Group had expanded to over 30 countries all over the world. The expansion continued at a faster rate when newer regulated markets started emerging. Novomatic subsidiaries were established in countries such as Botswana, Namibia, Latvia, Estonia, Poland, Norway, and Germany.
