Leading gaming company MERKUR Slots has invested £1.2m in UK high streets throughout April 2022, after opening six new entertainment centres – creating 60 new local jobs in the process. The new venues are located in Aberdeen, Blackpool, Crawley, Kidderminster, Rayners Lane and Taunton.
The opening is part of a nationwide programme that will see MERKUR Slots invest over £10 million on UK high streets in 2022.
Mark Schertle, chief operating officer of MERKUR Slots’ parent company MERKUR Casino UK, said: “We pride ourselves on our continued investment in UK high streets, and so it means a lot to be able to support the local community and economy in our six new locations through the creation of these new jobs. Every new venue we open creates an average of 10 new local jobs and having created 400 in 2021, we are aiming to create a further 600 in 2022.”
The new venues feature the latest bingo and digital slot machines, with the emphasis firmly on low stake gaming and pay-outs ranging from £5 to £500, and an extensive library of new and classic games. Customers also receive unlimited free refreshments.
“Our aim with these new state-of-the-art entertainment centres is to give both new and existing customers a unique gaming experience in an environment that reflects the scale of the investment,” added Mark. “I’m sure those visiting over the next few days and weeks will be as excited about the new MERKUR Slots venues as I am.”
