Greentube iGaming Software Review
When major adult gaming concerns like Novomatic makes the decision to change its business strategy and jump into a new market, they have two choices. They can try to develop the new business from within or head out into the marketplace and make a key acquisition or two. When Novomatic made the decision to take its land-based operations into the iGaming world, they chose to do so by acquiring an up and coming software developer named Greentube.
About the Company
Greentube was founded in 1998 under the name Durrschmid & Reisinger OEG. Several years, later, company officials changed the name as part of a marketing ploy. After developing a successful software platform, the company became a potential asset that Novomatic Interactive thought would fit well into its new business model. Based on that assumption, Astra Games, another Novomatic subsidiary, made its play and purchased Greentube in 2011. Green tube still maintains its primary headquarters in Vienna, Austria.
About the Software
With a focus on video slots, the game developers at Greentube have always maintained an arsenal of cutting edge software development tools like Java, HTML5 and Flash for the purpose of creating modern looking games with cutting edge functionality. Based on the decision to stay current with technology, Greentube's games have been successfully integrated within a large number of third-party software platforms currently being used throughout the industry. The latest versions of the company's software are accessible by players in download mode, instant play mode with most any web browser and through the use of smart phones and tablets that are compatible with popular operating systems like iOS for Apple and Android. Based on industry standards, all games are developed to work in conjunction with a random number generator that will be charged with providing fair and honest results. RNG certification for Greentube's games is typically handled at the operator level.
About the Games
As indicated above, a majority of Greentube's focus has been put on video slots. However, the company also develops table games, video poker games, bingo and skill-based games like Mahjong, Rummy and Backgammon. The video slots come in a variety of game themes and gaming formats with quality video and audio segments. Some of the company's top games include Book of Ra, American Gangster, Wild Horses, Marilyn Monroe, Diamond Street and Hoff Meister.
Verdict: A big reason why Novomatic has become an important name in the iGaming industry is because of the quality of Greentube's efforts. Most of the company's games stack up well within the industry, which should translate to the company sticking around for a long time to come.
