Greentube is an established casino software developer founded in 1998 under the name Dürrschmid&Reisinger OEG. The company changed its name to Greentube two years later. In 2010, Novomatic-owned Astra Games acquired a majority stake in Greentube and then acquired the remainder the following year. Greentube is now a fully owned subsidiary of Novomatic and serves as the company’s online gaming division.
Greentube Casino Games
Today, Greentube is involved in all aspects of online gaming. The company has produced a large library of online slot games and variations including well-known titles including the Book of Ra series, Mega Chance, Crystal Odyssey, Lucky Lady’s Charm, Sizzling Hot and Golden Sevens among others. Greentube casinos therefore offer a wide variety in games between the video slots, traditional 3-reel machines and table games that are all available via instant play software on both desktop and mobile devices.
Greentube slots are designed well and offer an interesting array of bonus features, but there is a wide range of quality in graphics and overall style. Some of their games are modern and up-to-date with high quality graphics while some of their games appear quite dated. However, it’s worth noting that they have been designing casino games since the 90s so there are bound to be varying levels of graphic quality.
Multiple gaming licenses acquired by Greentube serve as evidence of the integrity of their games. To date, Greentube has acquired license in the UK, Malta, Alderney, Schleswig-Holstein (Germany), Italy, Spain, Gibraltar and Latvia. Each of these regulatory bodies is demanding and the fact that Greentube has successfully applied for licenses in each jurisdiction is a major positive mark in their favour.
Greentube’s table games remain a weak spot, although the larger Novomatic group has made great strides in this area. Table games developed exclusively by Greentube remain somewhat dated and limited in scope, but partner company Extreme Live Gaming (which also operates under the Novomatic group) now offers a quality selection of live dealer games that have been picked up by the likes of Betsson, ComeOn and BetVictor.
Video Previews of Greentube Slots
The following video previews show the average level of quality you can expect from Greentube titles. The games don’t look bad and do function well, but it’s also clear they could use some work on the graphics side. With other providers such as NetEnt and Thunderkick among many others, competition is fierce in the world of online slots. Greentube will need to step things up a notch to maintain is competitive advantage.
Other Greentube Activities
In 2016, Greentube signed distribution deals with gaming platforms iGaming Cloud and EveryMatrix to bring the games library to a wider range of casino sites beyond just those that deal directly with Greentube. With these agreements in place, Greentube slots can now be found on casinos powered by Greentube itself, iGaming Cloud and EveryMatrix.
The Greentube offering is expanded greatly in conjunction with the larger Novomatic group. Between Greentube and other software developers under the Novomatic group, online casinos are able to integrate a wide range of gaming products for the benefit of their customers.
While Greentube itself is focused primarily on desktop and mobile slots, the company can also deliver a wider variety of table games, live dealer games, social games, bingo, Latin bingo, sports betting and online marketing solutions for land-based casinos.
Greentube is also making inroads into the North American casino market via the Greentube Pro marketing platform. With Greentube Pro, land-based casinos can offer their players an online experience styled after the actual casino. The platform grants access to the full library of games with social features (invite your friends) and player rewards programs that get them to return to the casino floor.
For example, a brick-and-mortar casino can set up a play-money casino site that is accessible both online and via mobile. There, a “Magic Moments” system offers casino rewards such as discounts at the casino’s restaurants when players earn certain achievements such as unlocking a new game, earning a certain number of loyalty points and so on. Furthermore, the play-money casino can easily make the switch to real-money play if favourable gambling laws are passed in that state.
