Touted as a whole new dimension of multi-player server-based terminal gaming, TCSJOHNHUXLEY debuted Novo Unity II at the IGE show in London.  

Novo Unity II delivers flexibility, allowing operators to make available any number and combination of Novomatic, live, automated and virtual casino multi-player games on individual electronic player terminals. Novo Unity II has been developed to be the platform for the future of multi-player gaming. It is a future-proof product casino operators can rely on. In addition to offering proven game content, a great variety of upcoming Novomatic multiplayer product developments will also be available.  

The networked structure of Novo Unity II lets operators offer all linked multi-player games on each of the player terminals. A database server forms the central interface for the communication among all linked game servers, that host the information from the peripheral devices, and the individual player terminals. Operators can build a whole electronic live game casino from a single system with Novo Unity II. It allows 250 players to play simultaneously the same live games, ranging from Roulette, Blackjack, Sic Bo or Baccarat, be them live, automated or RNG driven. Combined with automated bet and payout transactions, Novo Unity II increases turn over by speeding up the action and reducing time between games. This means that operators now have full flexibility to inter-connect table choices across Novo Multi (with results coming from fully automated wheels and dice shakers), any combination of Novo Touchbet Live tables, RNG Novo Flying content, or take winning results from 3rd party products such as the TouchTable MultiPLAY Roulette system.  

The complete range of Novomatic multi-player games have been newly developed to satisfy the demands of modern gaming, thrill customers with attractive design and offer room for the multitude of extra features.  

Stunning camera technology enables the display of a real-time, live picture from a selected Roulette wheel or card table. This feed displays on each player’s terminal, instantly transporting the atmosphere of the live game table.  

The use of crystal clear graphics in the player interface replicates game layouts. A wide format touch screen allows players to place their bets just like putting chips onto the table. The intuitive graphics make learning to play simple and fun.

The system provides the player with the opportunity to play a wide range of different live table games all from just one terminal while enjoying the ease and comfort of playing in their own space. It is an intimidation free environment for players, which significantly increases playing time and improves casino revenues.  

Jens Halle, Managing Director of Austrian Gaming Industries GmbH, noted: “For this year’s IGE Novomatic have compiled a truly ground-breaking array of new products and innovations. The Novo Unity II platform will open our customers to a whole new approach to gaming floor management. It endows them with a highly flexible tool for an individual fine-tuning of their gaming offering. I am convinced that also the new games and cabinets will be absolute highlights of the London show.”  

David Heap, Chief Executive Officer of TCSJOHNHUXLEY concluded: “Novo Unity™ II really is a groundbreaking product and represents a whole new dimension of multi-player server based terminal gaming. Developed with extensive experience, as a continuation of the hugely successful Novo NT and Unity I systems, this new platform promises to give players more game choice whilst delivering increased game frequency and reducing operating costs due to hybrid live gaming technologies.”
