Novomatic drags Euro Game Technology to court over sale of slot games

In a major development in the world of iGaming, Novomatic filed a lawsuit against Euro Game Technology with the Berlin District Court in Germany.

This was done with regards to the company’s involvement in the sale of slot games.

Not just that, this lawsuit has also been filed against Euro Game’s German sales partner D-Systems. In the matter, Novomatic has demanded compensation for the discontinuance of the further sale of certain slot games offered by Euro Game.

According to Novomatic, some of the slot gams “systematically and unfairly” utilized key aspects of its own titles, ‘Ultimate Hot’, ‘Olympus Glory’, ‘Flaming Hot’, ‘5 Dazzling Hot’, ‘Lucky Hot’ and ‘Extremely Hot’.

To make matters more interesting, the company also revealed that it intends to conduct legal action of similar kind in other countries as well.

This is indeed a brave decision from the company. Major iGaming brands usually tend to steer clear of any long drawn out court matters. However, this act of Novomatic could set a new precedent in the online gambling industry.
