Merkur Gaming is a supplier of slot machine cabinets, multi-games, cash dispensers, AWP machine, lottery terminals, and jackpot systems through a network of international distributors. In more recent times Merkur Gaming has made in-roads into the online gaming industry. They have taken several of their most popular land-based slot machines and redeveloped them for online and mobile play. These real money casino games are available through their own online casinos or through specially selected operators.
Some of Merkur’s slots that have proven popular online include the medieval slot Knights Life, gothic-themed Vampires, fairytale-inspired Magic Mirror Deluxe or the magical Hocus Locus Deluxe. The use of the word ‘Deluxe’ in the slots titles is a bit of a tradition with big European gaming companies, as seen on several Novomatic slots such as Book of Ra Deluxe and Lucky Lady’s Charm Deluxe.
Although Merkur has traditionally focused on their native German market, the popularity of their slots and the opportunities with online gaming, has seen them expand into new territories. Through their own online casino network, they have gained gaming licences for UK and other European gaming jurisdictions. Merkur Gaming is a subsidiary of the gaming giant Gauselmann AG (Gauselmann Group), which employs over 10,000 people worldwide.
They operate physical gaming locations across the United Kingdom where players can get Merkur slots. Venues include locations in Basingstoke and Selby as well as their latest venue in Southport.
