MERKUR has presented its new ship casino in alliance with the TUI Fleet. These modern ship casinos are provided under the MERKUR CASINO MARE brand. As casinos have successfully operated on board the “Mein Schiff 1” and “Mein Schiff 2”, a third MERKUR CASINO MARE has launched on the “Mein Schiff 3” TUI cruiser a few weeks ago.
The Gauselmann Group now has three ship casinos that are similar in 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, but also an additional casino lounge with four M-box motion devices and a blackjack table for classic live games.
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 authorized to accommodate 2506 passengers. Its features include a theater, a 25-meter outdoor pool and a glass balcony that floats approximately 37 meters over two decks in the shape of a diamond at the stern of the ship.
In an official press release, Kathy Schröder, Head of Casino Operations at MERKUR CASINO MARE, said: "Our high-quality ship casinos with their diverse games offerings are extremely popular with the public on the high seas".
David Schnabel, Managing Director of MERKUR SPIELBANKEN in the corporate group, added: "Our mix of ultra-modern MERKUR innovations, service offerings and events are fully geared towards our guests' wishes and preferences. 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."
