Gaming company MERKUR Slots has opened a £200,000 entertainment centre on High Street in Dudley, creating 10 jobs.
The opening is part of a nationwide programme that will see MERKUR Slots invest more than £10m on UK high streets in 2022.
Mark Schertle, chief operating officer of MERKUR Slots’ parent company MERKUR Casino UK, said: “We pride ourselves on our continued investment in UK high streets, and so it means a lot to be able to support the local community and economy in Dudley, through the creation of these new jobs. Every new venue we open creates an average of 10 new local jobs and having created 400 in 2021, we are aiming to create a further 600 in 2022.”
He added: “Our aim with this new state-of-the-art entertainment centre is to give both new and existing customers a unique gaming experience in an environment that reflects the scale of the investment,” added Mark. “I’m sure those visiting over the next few days and weeks will be as excited about this new MERKUR Slots venue as I am.”
