They’re not that well known outside of Germany, but in the country they often have games ranking in the top 10. The land-based category alone has over 20,000 machines which have their content on them in Germany, but the company has also expanded into Eastern Europe, South America, Italy and Spain.
Among the things to note about this developer, is the fact that they are licensed in Malta and Isle of Man, and that they’re getting their games tested by BMM Test Labs, and overall these are good ways for the player to see that the company is going to be fair with them.
Gamomat has started out as a German company, which was mainly focused on the Street market as they call it, offering land-based slot machines. They had great success in that space, and they managed to compete or partner with the likes of Merkur and Bally Wulff. In 2013, their casino games were available on more than 20,000 machines in Germany. At the time they also started their expansion into Eastern Europe, and they were announcing that Italy, Spain and South America were next.
They began turning their land-based titles to online/mobile versions as well, and in the future they expect for their entire collection to be available on all platforms. They apparently have over 260 titles released in total, though I’ve counted less than 80 currently for the online platform.
Gamomat Casino Games
Close to 80 slot machines have been released by Gamomat for the online market, and from what I know they’re all ports from the land-based games that they’ve made popular over the years. Several categories are used to group their titles under, including the regular ones, the titles which include the Red Hot Firepot jackpot, the slots with the Golden Nights Bonus and the Christmas Edition titles.
Quite a few cool themes have been approached in these slot machines from Gamomat. I’ve seen several which use the Japanese Samurai for inspiration, others which are centered on a Crazy Chicken character, on the Italian Dolce Vita, or even on Spanish matadors.
Considering that these are ports from land-based titles, the graphics used in their slot machines aren’t that bad actually. You’re getting some excellent high symbols, with a lot of details used in them, though the low paying Royals are still on the boring side. Overall, while they will not compete well in this category with the big online-only companies, they can stand shoulder to shoulder with many other developers which have found success in the online space.
For the features of their games, I’ve found enough variety to keep me interested, but I didn’t get anything truly unique. Innovation isn’t a strong suit for them, from what I could see so far, but at least you don’t get simple features in those slots. They keep things varied and interesting, so for Savanna Moon they deliver several multipliers, along with wilds, scatters and free spins, while in Ancient Riches you have wilds, scatters and as many as 100 free spins with stacked wilds.
Of note should also be two of their features that have been turned into a series. Red Hot Firepot Jackpots are delivered via thermometers, as are the Golden Nights Bonus payouts. Each of these gets its own series of slot machines, regular ones to which this extra feature has been added. You can typically see in their titles when they offer it.
The payouts can vary, from 500x to 10,000x. Some will pay better than others, in some cases there are special jackpots as well added, so you have some choices to make. The usual range of payouts should be expected, but Gamomat doesn’t seem to have any ultra-high volatility titles for now.
The games for which I’ve seen an RTP mentioned somewhere, have all been the kind with 96% or slightly higher figures. They don’t stray too much from that number, so unless you find one with a lower payout than that, pick based on features, graphics or top payouts offered.
