Founded in 1980 by the entrepreneur Prof. Johann F. Graf, the NOVOMATIC Group is one of the largest gaming technology companies in the world, employing more than 25,000 people (around 3,300 in Austria). As one of the leading technology groups in Austria and an exporter to over 70 countries, controlled growth is deeply rooted in the company’s philosophy.
Its core markets are mainly Central Europe in addition to Eastern and Southeastern Europe. In future, the focus will also be on expanding its market position, especially in the USA, Australia, Asia and South America. The acquisition of the Australian gaming technology group Ainsworth Game Technology Ltd. represents a strategically important step which strengthens the Group’s position in the US while opening up new markets such as South America, Africa and Asia. NOVOMATIC pursues the strategy of covering all segments of the gaming industry as a global full-service provider. The Group offers its products exclusively in regulated markets with clear legal frameworks.
In addition to its headquarters in Gumpoldskirchen, the Group, which has more than 4,000 IP rights, operates 14 production sites and 27 technology centres in Germany, the United Kingdom, Spain, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Russia, Iceland and Argentina. Its role as a trendsetter in the gaming industry in R & D is a direct result of this.
