What began in Delmenhorst has developed into the market leader
Under the logo of the smiling MERKUR sun, the MERKUR GROUP operates over 800 arcades both domestically and in European countries. The foundation for this development was laid by Paul Gauselmann in 1974 with the opening of his first own arcade in Delmenhorst, Lower Saxony. In the same year, he founded what is now MERKUR CASINO GmbH, the operating company for domestic MERKUR arcades. Today, the company is the market leader and operates around 350 of its own locations in Germany under the MERKUR SPIELHALLE brand.
