The victory enables the Gauselmann Group to operate up to 10 casino locations under the Merkur brand from 1 September 2024, for an initial 15-year period.

Paul Gauselmann, Founder and Chairman of the Management Board, said: “I’m extremely delighted about receiving the casino concession in our neighbouring state of Lower Saxony. Being able to clock up this additional significant milestone in our company’s history, just two years after taking over the North Rhine-Westphalia casinos, makes me and all the employees involved very proud.”

The issuance of the casino concession was attributed to the Gauselmann Group's competence in operating casinos, evident in its management of 15 locations across various German states.

Off the back of the concession, the transition of the Lower Saxony casinos into the Gauselmann Group is scheduled for autumn 2024. The company aims to integrate these establishments into the world of Merkur while ensuring a seamless continuation of gaming services.

David Schnabel, Managing Director of Merkur Spielbanken, added: “With the takeover of the North Rhine-Westphalia casinos in 2021, we proved in an impressive way that we are able to realign the gaming and service offering in record time, to secure existing jobs, create new ones, and even increase their attractiveness.

"I’m certain we will also be able to set new standards in Lower Saxony and continue to write our story of success with the casinos there.”
