MERKUR team is the best in the business!

Members of Parliament have been visiting MERKUR Slots venues to find out more about high street gaming entertainment

Rebecca Pow, the Conservative MP for Taunton Deane was the guest of the company when she visited our new gaming entertainment centre located in the Somerset town.

She was the fourth MP in the space of a month to learn more about MERKUR’s safer gambling undertakings and joined fellow MPs Alex Davies-Jones, Shadow Minister, Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, Jonathan Djanogly, Conservative MP for Huntingdon and Matt Warman the Conservative MP for Boston and Skegness.

A total of 60 MPs have been hosted in their local MERKUR Slots and according to Tony Boulton, who is the company’s Director of Public and Political Relations, it has proved to be a hugely positive exercise.

“For the majority of our MPs it has been their first time inside a high street gaming entertainment centre” stated Tony. “Some of them have no doubt arrived anticipating the worst but without exception all have left genuinely impressed by what they’ve seen and what they’ve experienced speaking with the venue teams and our customers.”

Tony believes that the MERKUR venue teams play an invaluable role representing the business and what it stands for.

He confirmed: “Having the Venue Managers and customer-facing staff explaining to their MPs the training that they complete, what we do to identify and help the small percentage of players who might be experiencing problems, the age profile of machine players and how venues serve as an important meeting point for customers has all provided an authentic and powerful insight to what we are all about.”

“There’s no doubt that all of the MERKUR venue staff have been superb ambassadors for the company and what MERKUR stands for.”
