As an operator of gaming venues and casinos in Germany and abroad, and as a provider of sports betting and online gaming in licensed markets, the Gaming Operations Business Segment combines all B2C activities of the Gauselmann Group.
The smiling MERKUR sun is Germany's most popular gaming and good luck symbol and stands for one thing above all: the joy of gaming. Under this logo, the Gaming Operations Business Segment operates around 800 gaming venues throughout Europe - some 400 in Germany and around 400 in the UK, Spain, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, Serbia, Croatia and Bulgaria.
This outstanding expertise has led to a steady stream of new areas being successfully developed. For example, not only are ten casino locations currently operated in Germany, but two shipboard casinos have also been opened on the passenger ships "Mein Schiff 1" and "Mein Schiff 2" in partnership with TUI Cruises.The Gaming Operations Business Segment is now also very successfully represented in the sports betting and online gaming segments. The MERKUR Sportsbetting subsidiary bundles sports betting activities in the core markets of Germany (XTiP), Austria and Denmark (Cashpoint), Belgium (Betcenter) and Poland (Totolotek). In addition, the business unit is further expanding its online efforts: since October 2020, the existing sports betting offering has been expanded to include virtual slots.
