The Gauselmann Group’s third shipboard casino under the Merkur Casino Mare brand has launched on TUI Cruises Mein Schiff 3. The new venue features six electronic Merkur roulette machines, together with a casino lounge space offering four M-box motion devices.
The Gauselmann Group has been providing casino services on board TUI Cruises passenger liners since 2018 under the Merkur Casino Mare brand.
The company’s casinos have already been operating very successfully on board the Mein Schiff 1 and Mein Schiff 2 cruise ships since 2018 and 2019 respectively. Recently, a third Merkur Casino Mare launched on TUI’s Mein Schiff 3.
“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.
The Gauselmann Group’s 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.
“Our mix of ultra-modern Merkur innovations, service offerings and events are fully geared towards our guests’ wishes and preferences”, assures David Schnabel, MD of Merkur Spielbanken. “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.”
Mein Schiff 3 is TUI Cruises’ first newly constructed ship and was put into service in 2014. It is 293 meters long and can accommodate 2506 passengers. 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.
