Novomatic has been one of the most innovative game providers for some thirty-seven years. Even before there was an internet the company was developing games for land based casinos. We at WPokies are happy to include Novomatic as one of our games providers. Novomatic specializes in slots so here we’ll talk primarily about Novomatic pokies. Rest assured that all of Novomatics games deliver great gaming fun and entertainment.

Novomatic does everything necessary to insure that the graphics, animation, and sound on each of its land based and online pokies are absolutely perfect.
Reviews of Several Pokies
The list of WPokies games includes many Novomatic pokies. We’ll review a few to give you an idea of the high quality pokies we take from each of our game providers.
Lord of the Ocean
In addition to the 10-Ace symbols, Lord of the Ocean features a statue of Poseidon, a gem encrusted wheel, a treasure chest, and two adventures—one male and one female. A unique feature of this pokies game is that the wild and scatter are the same symbol—the gem encrusted wheel.
Three wild/scatter symbols anywhere on the reels send you to the bonus round with ten free spins. To give you greater winning chances in this round, the game chooses one of the symbols randomly and expands it. In this way, you can achieve some very sizable wins.
Book of Ra
This is one of the great slots classics. Book of Ra was one of the most popular pokies played in European land based casinos for many years before Novomatic retooled it for the new online casino market. Where it was popular with land based casino patrons, it veritably zoomed ahead once it came to the online casino market.
Book of Ra pokies is based on ancient Egyptian civilization. That is the civilization that gave us the pyramids and the Sphinx. The frame features hieroglyphics and at the top of the screen is the sun setting behind the majestic pyramids. Book of Ra invites you to enter the world of archeological exploration.
The symbols include an intrepid explore, a scarab, a sarcophagus, and a statue. Every spin portends to the possibility of making an earth shattering new discovery that would shine a new light on the thousands-year old Egyptian civilization.
The Book of Ra symbol is both wild and scatter. If you get one or two, it will act as the wild; if you get three or more it will whisk you to the free spins bonus round.
As in Lord of the Ocean, the bonus round gives you ten free spins and an expanded symbol that the game chooses at random. In the Book of Ra, the expanded symbol expands further with every win until it covers the entire reel.
Book of Ra also has a gamble feature where you can double your win.
If you enjoy the rat-a-tat of gunfire from the Roaring Twenties in Chicago, you’ll love Chicago pokies game. Chicago is based in Chicago during the prohibition era when alcohol was both illegal and omnipresent. Elliot Ness and his band of Untouchables wage a hard fought battle for control of the whisky trade in Chicago with Scarface Al Capone and his gang.
As you might already know, Al Capone was the gangster and Elliott Ness was the good guy who tried to get the violence that permeated Chicago at that time under control.
When you score a win in this pokies, you get to shoot at bottles lined up. Each bottle carries a multiplier with the highest multiplier being 10x. The gangster’s car is the scatter and three or more get you to the bonus round. The basic bonus round calls for twelve free spins which you can retrigger with another set of scatter symbols.
Lucky Lady’s Charm
Although pokies are all basically games of chance, Lucky Lady’s Charm takes luck and actually makes it its theme. In addition to the lucky lady, the symbols include a rabbit’s foot, a gold coin, a four leaf clover, and a ladybird. The lucky lady is the wild symbol and the crystal ball is the scatter.
As the wild symbol, the Lucky Lady carries a 2x multiplier for every win she helps you achieve. She also loves to flirt; ergo the charm in the game’s name. She saves her flirtations for the wins she helps you achieve. Then she turns on the charm!
Three or more scatters get you fifteen free spins and in this round all wins have a 3x multiplier. In this way, the Lucky Lady can help you win and will continue to flirt but even if you don’t need her assistance for a win, you’ll get 3x the basic winning amount.
Every symbol is animated and has a musical accompaniment for wins. They represent the great commitment of Novomatic to excellence in graphics, sound, and animation.
This slots game has two versions; the first proved to be so popular that Novomatic developed a sequel. The symbols are somewhat different but the main extra feature is that in Sizzling Hot 6, you can choose to play with a sixth reel. The extra reel, if you choose to play with it, doubles your bet and increases winning totals appropriately.
Aussies identify strongly with Sizzling Hot in both its forms because, when the summer sun makes the entire continent “sizzling hot”, Aussies try to cool off with cold fresh fruit!
At WPokies, we offer a great welcome bonus to new players. When you use your bonus to play our excellent selection of Novomatic games, we call it your Novomatic pokies bonus!
