Merkur Gaming makes Irish strides


Merkur Gaming was at the recent Irish Gaming Show in Dublin for the second year and now says it can look back on a highly successful product launch.

Following on from the positive response to the market introduction of the Merkurstar at last year’s show, the Merkur parent company Gauselmann Group teamed up with FunFair Amusements as official distributor and within just 12 months had installed over 100 machines in the Irish market.

At this year’s show, Merkur presented the Evostar, which combines the ergonomic aspects and player comfort of a slant top with the typical characteristics of an upright cabinet. The Evostar also has an integrated USB port so players can charge their mobile phone.

Summing up the event, Markus Wessler, sales director, said: “Ireland is a key growth market for Merkur Gaming and even after just a few months we are already making very successful inroads. This has prompted us to increase our presence at the Irish Gaming Show this year, which – if the positive visitor feedback is anything to go by – was the right decision.”

Philip O’Leary, managing director of FunFair Amusements, said: “The partnership with an international group of Gauselmann’s standing means a lot to FunFair Amusements. The past year has already shown that Merkur Gaming’s product portfolio ideally complements our own and has met with keen interest on the Irish market.”
