Szolnok/Szeged/Espelkamp. At the beginning of March, Merkur Casino, the successful arcade chain of the German Gauselmann Group that operates in all of Europe, opened a new entertainment center under the brand name “Merkur Spielo“ in the city of Szolnok, 100 km to the east of Budapest. The city with a population of approximately 78,000 is located in the heart of the Hungarian plain.

The city of Reutlingen in the southern German region of Swabia and the city of Bonn on the river Rhine that both also boast a Merkur sun in the form of a Merkur Spielothek are the twin towns or sister cities of Szolnok.

The new entertainment center is located on the upper floor of the recently opened modern shopping center at the central bus station of the city.
370 square meters and 62 gaming stations offer a cutting edge international gaming mix including two of the very popular roulettes.

Only two days later, there was another opening, in Szeged in the southern part of the Hungarian plain. Szeged is located close to the tri-border region with Serbia and Romania and 164,000 habitants make it the fourth largest city in Hungary. It is at the same time the sunniest. More than 2,000 hours of sunshine per year brought it the wonderful epithet of “city of sunshine.“

With a gaming surface of approximately 320 square meters and 48 gaming stations the entertainment center in Szeged, similar to the one in Szolnok, is one of the most modern and innovative entertainment centers currently operated by Merkur Casino in Hungary.

The distinct characteristics of the international arcade chain Merkur such as the stylish interior design, the first class product portfolio as well as the exemplary service also distinguish the two new gaming casinos.

The Merkur service teams are qualified and trained according to the uniform international quality standards of the Group and see to the wellbeing of the patrons every day almost around the clock.

The official grand opening ceremonies for both locations are scheduled for spring of this year.
