The Gauselmann Group has been creating an exclusive casino feeling on board the TUI Cruises passenger liners since 2018 by offering a combination of classic and slot games. The modern ship casinos are provided under the MERKUR CASINO MARE brand. Casinos have already been operating very successfully on board the “Mein Schiff 1” and “Mein Schiff 2” cruise ships since 2018 and 2019 respectively and a third MERKUR CASINO MARE was launched on the “Mein Schiff 3” TUI cruiser just a few weeks ago.
“Our high-quality ship casinos with their diverse games offerings are extremely popular with the public on the high seas”, reports Kathy Schröder, Head of Casino Operations at MERKUR CASINO MARE. She went on to say that stylish entertainment in a great atmosphere is also an integral part of a holiday on board a cruise ship.
The Gauselmann Group’s now three ship casinos are similar in terms of size and equipment. However, the latest MERKUR CASINO MARE offers not only the actual casino area with six electronic MERKUR roulette machines and 14 other gaming machine innovations (including the popular “coin pusher” game) but also an additional casino lounge with four M-box motion devices and a blackjack table for classic live games.
Three staff members in the new MERKUR CASINO MARE continuously ensure that the passengers experience unforgettable moments of happiness and entertaining gaming fun during their holiday cruise on board “Mein Schiff 3”.
“Our mix of ultra-modern MERKUR innovations, service offerings and events are fully geared towards our guests’ wishes and preferences”, assures David Schnabel, Managing Director of MERKUR SPIELBANKEN in the corporate group. “The Gauselmann Group is renowned not only for its consistent focus on guests but also for always offering its guests the best games and gaming machines in an upmarket atmosphere. This simple and, at the same time, unique MERKUR key to success is also particularly reflected in our ship casinos.”
The “Mein Schiff 3” cruise ship was TUI Cruises’ first newly constructed ship and was put into service in 2014. It is 293 meters long and is authorised to accommodate 2506 passengers. Its stand-out features include not only a theatre but also a 25-meter outdoor pool and a glass balcony that floats approximately 37 meters above the sea. The glass façade is an additional design highlight that extends over two decks in the shape of a diamond at the stern of the ship.
