The Gauselmann Group operates online casinos in a number of European countries. The essential prerequisite here is a legally regulated market and a valid licence.
In Germany, the Gauselmann Cashpoint subsidiary at the end of 2012 successfully passed the extensive audits set by Schleswig-Holstein’s Ministry of the Interior in connection with the award of sports betting and online casino licences. In 2013, the company started gaming operations with online casino games at www.merkur-spielcasino.de. With this, the Gauselmann Group now offers customers the opportunity to also play the popular Merkur Magic games online. The online casino was therefore created as an addition to the existing product range available in the CASINO MERKUR-SPIELOTHEK entertainment centres. The Gauselmann edict subsidiary is responsible for the technical realisation. All adults residing in Schleswig-Holstein can play for money online; all other interested parties can visit www.merkur-spielcasino.de to play – in compliance with the statutory requirements – “just for fun”.
In addition to the online casino in Schleswig-Holstein the Gauselmann Group has operated online casinos in Austria since 2005. In 2012, business activities were extended to Italy, Denmark and the UK. Furthermore, at the end of 2015 an online casino in Spain went live. Since 2015 the portals in Spain, the UK and in Schleswig-Holstein have been operated by the newly founded company Merkur Interactive Services GmbH based in Berlin.
