All 4 “MERKUR Salons de Juego“ in operation in Granada/Spain

Espelkamp/Granada. With the grand reopening of the fourth MERKUR Salon de Juego “Constitucion” location, MERKUR CASINO duly celebrated its going-life in the Spanish Granada-market. This means, all current Spanish entertainment centers of the GAUSELMANN Group are now completely in new-operation. When the new locations were first taken over by MERKUR CASINO they were fundamentally remodeled and aligned with the typical yet localized MERKUR CASINO design. Today, MERKUR CASINO is represented in 10 countries and it is unrivalled because of its well-trained and competent staff, its target-group oriented product portfolio as well as its comforting and appealing interior design.

Almost 300 square meters not only make ‘Constitucion’ the biggest of the four new MERKUR CASINOs but also the largest entertainment center in Granada. The highly specialized casino machines, including among other highlights such as ‘Cashline Platino’ from the MERKUR GAMING product line as well as electronic roulette, have been providing perfect entertainment to the patrons since the location was opened. The interior design is modeled on the ‘planet concept’ that has been very successfully implemented in Hungary and other MERKUR CASINO locations in Europe. Not only enthusiastic gaming patrons but also numerous representatives of the local authorities and the gaming industry accepted the invitation of country manager Isabel Roman to celebrate the successful opening with Spanish wine, ham specialties and a fiery show.

The GAUSELMANN Group, which proudly looks back to 50 years history this year, currently operates 270 entertainment centers in the European arena. Just in time for the anniversary of the company the family-managed Group generated consolidated revenues of more than EUR 1 billion in FY 2006. The GAUSELMANN Group employs more than 5,500 staff worldwide and is the only company in the German coin operated machine industry to be certified according to ISO DIN EN 9001:2000. In 10 European countries the friendly smiling MERKUR sun has become a popular lucky symbol and much coveted guarantor for innovative leisure time culture.
