Empire rumours confirmed!


We can finally confirm that the Novomatic Group of Companies has acquired a majority stake in Empire Games.

The three directors of Empire Games will remain as shareholders and Craig Beer confirms that the day-to-day running of the company will be largely unaffected.

“More than anything, this deal will allow us to share resources with Astra Games and it will give us a base in the emerging digital market,” he told Coin-op Community. “We had a close relationship with Barcrest for over 10 years but their proposed sale meant we had to look around at new opportunities.”

“This deal not only helps to give us access to terminals and investment, it also provides the Novomatic Group and Astra with the benefit of our skills. We have been very successful for the last couple of years, especially in the bingo sector and we have a small but very dynamic development team that delivers. You could say that Empire has always managed to punch above its weight!”
