Greentube, the interactive division of Novomatic, has acquired Italian developer Capecod Solutions. The amount of the acquisition was undisclosed.
The acquisition of the Italian developer, which has been part of Novomatic Italian group since 2017, will increase Greentube’s Italian game portfolio and also add the first aggregator pole within its online offering.
Greentube plans to strengthen its presence in Italy with this acquisition. It will also allow Greentube to enhance the Novomatic Group’s omni-channel strategy as the Capecod’s games development capabilities will be made available to Novomatic Italia’s land-based clients in the AWP segment, becoming part of the NovoElsy AWP games portfolio.
The acquisition also means that Novomatic Italia’s conversions of popular AWP titles will be supplied to Capecod. The purpose of the cross-selling strategy is to provide a continuous output of new games produced to the highest standards in terms of performance and compliance, for both online and AWP customers.

“It is an honour to be able to bring all of the know-how and experience gained in recent years through working with the renowned software house Capecod to the whole Novomatic AG Group.
“The acquisition is proof of the good work that has been achieved and the importance of investing continuously in technology and human resources. Moreover, it also enables us to give our Group an even stronger international focus, presenting ourselves to our customers synergistically while relying on the best products available on the market.”
