Novomatic’s wholly-owned subsidiary Novo Gaming Netherlands has acquired 100% of the shares, expanding its operations in the country following takeovers of Dutch gaming companies JVH Exploitatie and JVH Gaming Products earlier this year.

The buy-outs of JVH Exploitatie and JVH Gaming Products in May by Novomatic’s Austrian subsidiary led to the creation of Novo Gaming Netherlands.

“Together with Novomatic we expect to provide premium quality service and state-of-the-art products and innovations to the Dutch gaming market,” Eurocoin Gaming managing director Paul Strikers said.

“As such we will make sure our customers get access to best-of-breed group game content across all distribution channels.

“Our new team will ensure that Dutch operators will discover new sources of revenue via new and innovative products which will open up new revenue streams and at the same time significantly grow the current customer base.”

Novomatic chief technology officer Thomas Graf added: “Eurocoin is the leading force in the Dutch gaming supply chain with a market share of up to 80T in the pub market and a growing presence in the arcade sector.

“Eurocoin Gaming shares our ambitions; a continuous drive for innovations and being the best in our areas of business. Furthermore, Eurocoin Gaming has a huge historical library of successful games that will also be made available to the future online gaming market in the Netherlands once it becomes fully regulated.”
