The lawsuit was filed in the Berlin District Court and is requesting that the offending games be shut down and that Novomatic be paid damages that the games have produced. In addition to Euro Games Technology, the company has also included D-Systems GmbH in the lawsuit.
A company statement on the matter read: "The lawsuit is based on the fact that in Novomatic's view, several games offered by Euro Game Technology Ltd. systematically and unfairly use essential elements (including the reel strips) of well-established Novomatic games."
"Specifically, the games in question are "Ultimate Hot", "Olympus Glory", "Flaming Hot", "5 Dazzling Hot", "Lucky Hot" and "Extremely Hot. Similar legal actions are currently being prepared in other countries."
