he Novomatic product presentation at G2E included a selection of the most popular international games, cabinets and solutions. Apart from the renowned high quality slots and multiplayer product range Novomatic also presented sophisticated Octavian jackpots and systems.
On the red carpet at the Novomatic booth visitors found top star cabinets such as the NOVOSTAR SL2 and the Super-V+ Gaminator with the latest Coolfire II multi-game mixes. With up to 27 games per multi-game mix, up to seven player-selectable denominations, multi-language options as well as a great choice of high/low line-games (5 to 40 lines selectable) these multi-game mixes offer maximum flexibility for the operator and guests alike.
A further attraction in Las Vegas was the Ultimate 10 multi-game mixes XA-H: this new and growing range of multi-game mixes is based on the new Coolfire I+ gaming platform and is available in the popular Gaminator cabinet. The Coolfire I+ platform combines the benefits of Coolfire II technology with the cost effective price structure of the former Coolfire I platform; thus offering tremendous benefits for the more cost-conscious customer segment.
Novomatic also displayed a comprehensive multiplayer installation comprising Novo Multi-Roulette, Novo TouchBet Baccarat, Novo Flying Black Jack as well as Novo Flying Texas Hold’em Poker, Novo Flying 3-Card Poker and Novo Flying Carribean Poker - all in one system and all available on each of the linked individual player stations. This multiplayer multi-game functionality adds maximum comfort and convenience for the guest and maximum flexibility for the operator.
Running on the server based Novo Unity II multiplayer platform it allows casinos to link any chosen number of terminals to different games such as Roulette, Baccarat, Poker and Black Jack to make all those games available at every single player station. Thus the guest can flexibly switch from one game to another via fingertip touch, without having to leave his favourite seat.
During the exhibition Novomatic international subsidiary Austrian Gaming Industries GmbH (AGI) was chosen for a special award, presented by Global Gaming Business magazine, with Novo Unity II announced as the ‘Best Table Game Product or Innovation.
The product presentation was complemented by a selection of Octavian equipment that represents part of the assets that Novomatic acquired from the international gaming supplier earlier this year: the exhibited products such as Casino Management Systems were presented in a comprehensive show installation connecting the machines on display.
Also, cash handling systems demonstrated at the Novomatic booth included cashless and TITO applications. With the proprietary jackpot system P-Box AGI also presented the brand new jackpot theme ‘Fredy Fortuna’ which has been developed through the close cooperation of Octavian South America and AGI.
Jens Halle, Managing Director AGI, wrapped up the show by stating: “G2E this year was a very good show for Novomatic and AGI. We saw a welcome number of international visitors; including many from South America and we were pleased to be able to conclude worthwhile levels of business. We look forward to next year’s more favourable date and to the change of venue for the show. Meetings held here in Las Vegas have gone a long way to creating a more ‘business-friendly’ dimension to the international show calendar and I think all of the major manufacturers were glad of the opportunity to sit together and openly discuss many matters that have affected us all in recent months. We now look forward to ICE 2011 in London where we will continue that process.”
