The Illinois Gaming Board has approved Novomatic Americas as a licensed supplier of games for both the state’s riverboat casino market and its VGT video lottery bar market.
“The approval of Novomatic Americas by the Illinois Gaming Board is both very welcome and, following our recently held focus group and product presentation events, particularly timely,” said Rick Meitzler, vice president of sales-North America for Novomatic Americas. “It has already been made very clear to us that the Illinois gaming operators are ready and willing to welcome Novomatic and that they are keen to evaluate our product offering for themselves at the earliest possible opportunity.”
The license approvals were lauded by the supplier as a major forward step for Novomatic’s entry into key U.S. markets through its Florida-based partner, Reel Games, Inc.
Novomatic Americas was established in 2012 as a strategic step for Austria’s Novomatic Group on the American continent with an emphasis on tribal government gaming.
