About Merkur Casino
Part of the Gauselmann Group, Merkur is a big player when it comes to gambling, operating more than 200 venues across the UK. It’s a respected brand that’s known for delivering an exciting gaming experience to bricks-and-mortar punters. The company also enjoys a big presence online thanks to a comprehensive slot website.
As with the slots platform. the casino version is operated by Gauselmann subsidiary, Eyas Gaming Ltd. Bedecked in blue and featuring the recognisable Merkur logo, the casino version showcases an expansive range of slots and casino table games. You can also enjoy a live dealer platform that features roulette, blackjack and poker tables.
Bonuses and Promotions
A fairly decent 100% deposit match of up to £300 awaits new players (max. stake £10). It’s subject to okay-ish wagering rules of 40x although this can only be satisfied by specific roulette and blackjack games. The offer is availble for the first three days of registration.
Slots and Casino Games
Merkur has actually had a hand in the creation of many big-name slots, among them Eye of Horus, Fishin’ Frenzy and the Jackpot King series. Merkur’s involvment isn’t always that obvious given that many are developed under the banner of different Gauselmann subsidiaries such as Blueprint. But all of these game feature in the game lobby. Other titles are offered by rival developers too such as NetEnt and Red Tiger. Standout slots include:
- The Big Catch
- Action Bank
- Rainbow Riches
- Gods of Olympus
- Wolf Gold
- Diamond Mine
- Chilli Gold
- Bison Bonanza
BGT’s famed mechanic Megaways is well-represented with more than 60 slots offered including new interpretations such as The Dog House. Traditional casino table games are also covered well. In keeping with most big-brand casinos, Merkur lays on a solid variety of blackjack, roulette and baccarat variants.
But it’s the live dealer platform that stands out the most, incorporating all of the above classics. Sic Bo and Dice are also thrown in – great if you’re looking for a bit of variety. Live games are powered by Evolution – one of the leading live casino pioneers.
Although Merkur Casino doesn’t feature games from a huge array of developers, the size of their slot collection remains highly competitive – Megaways and Jackpot King games are particular highlights. However, it’s clear that the emphasis is most definitely on live casino gaming with more than 250+ tables that are powered by the likes of Evolution Gaming.
