ovomatic will present a whole new dimension of multiplayer gaming: the new server-based platform Novo Unity II. More than half of the booth space will be devoted to a comprehensive presentation of the multitude of new possibilities opened by this ground-breaking multiplayer technology innovation made in Austria.
Novo TouchBet Live-Roulette, Novo Multi-Roulette, Novo TouchBet Live-Baccarat, Novo TouchBet Live-Black Jack, Novo TouchBet Live-Sic Bo, Novo Multi-Roulette as well as the new electronic live gaming table featuring Novo Texas Hold’em Poker and the Novo Wheel of Cash will be installed in a huge live networked multiplayer cluster at ICE.
The entire range of games have been graphically redesigned and transferred to the new Novo Unity II platform. At IGE, the firm will present themselves as the interoperable multiplayer product family of choice for the future of gaming.
The new multiplayer platform Novo Unity II offers unrivalled flexibility for the casino management and a unique gaming diversity for the guest. It is an innovative platform for the flexible operation of all Novomatic multiplayers in one networked system. It allows operators to choose any number and combination of Novomatic multiplayer games to offer on each of the individual player terminals.
This new flexibility is based on the networked structure of the new Novo Unity II installation layout. A database server forms the central interface for the communication among all linked game servers, which host the information from the peripheral devices, and the individual player terminals.
This networked structure allows the operator to actually offer his guests all linked multiplayer games on each of the connected player stations. An easy game management via the server-based operating menu guarantees unrivalled flexibility for the casino management. The operator can map his complete multiplayer floor layout, define individual groupings, unlock and block certain games on chosen terminals and thus flexibly adapt his multiplayer offering on demand to varying requirements.
The complete range of Novomatic multiplayer games have been newly developed to satisfy the demands of modern gaming, thrill customers with attractive design and offer room for the multitude of extra features. Such features as the multi-game functionality that allows the player to individually select the type of game as well as the specific table he wants to play on directly on his player terminal. Further extra features are Multi-Denomination and multi-language options, live camera picture (for Novo TouchBet Live- and Novo Multi- versions) and the great variety of side bets, help menus, general navigation buttons and info screens.
Novo Unity II has been developed to be platform for the future of multiplayer gaming.
