Once upon a time, IGT machines used to pack UK casinos and many of those in Europe and South America. They still dominate Vegas and US casinos and you can’t miss the aging Cleopatra slot whenever you walk into a land-based casino even today. And in the U.S. they and WMS are so dominant that slot games Games like the Book Of Ra have simply passed Americans by.
In more recent times though, the German companyNovomatic have made huge inroads into European casinos and the Gaminator machines are not only fictures but compete for floor space with IGT now. Typically, the Gaminator and Super Gaminator machines have one of several preset configurations that Novomatic put out. In the UK, they have specific “Game Packs” that are not only geared towards the favourite games but also the £2 max bet and £4k max payout.
The Book Of Ra is arguably the most popular Gaminator game that’s transitioned to online but several others are now available (as you’ll see from the menu to the left). Among my favorite slots from the Super V+ Gaminator range I play that I can now access online are Lucky Lady’s Charm which has the highest online payout of any Novomatic game at just a shade over 97% and the Dolphin’s Pearl slot which has a different theme (obviously!) but identical gameplay to Lucky Lady.
Like their land-based equivalents, the online versions of the Gaminator slot games are pretty volatile and getting the bonus rounds isn’t easy but again, like the regular versions you get increased chances of a re-trigger online as more scatters are generally added to the feature reels although my gut feeling is that the online versions are programmed to have less re-triggers and more wins in the base game.
Of the Gaminator games I play regularly in European casinos, the following games are now available to play at the casinos listed below: Book Of Ra, Dolphin’s Pearl, Lucky Lady’s Charm, Katana, Lord Of The Ocean, Fairy Queen, Columbus, Beetle Mania, Sizzling Hot, Ultra Hot, Powre Stars and Just Jewels.
Novomatic are porting more Gaminator slots for online play all the time but as I write, there are quite a few Gaminator-based games that aren’t available online:Lions, Rich Witch, Mariella, Gryphon’s Gold, Tiki Islandand Egyptian Experience spring to mind.
