A gaming company has celebrated the opening of a new venue in Golders Green.

Merkur Slots has opened a £200,000 entertainment centre in Golders Green Road, creating ten jobs in the process.

The venue features the latest bingo and digital slot machines, and Merkur Slots says the emphasis is firmly on low stake gaming and pay-outs ranging from £5 to £500, and an extensive library of new and classic games.

Customers also receive unlimited free refreshments.

Mark Schertle, chief operating officer of MERKUR Slots’ parent company MERKUR Casino UK, said: "We pride ourselves on our continued investment in UK high streets, and so it means a lot to be able to support the local community and economy in Golders Green through the creation of these new jobs.

"Every new venue we open creates an average of 10 new local jobs and having created 400 in 2021, we are aiming to create a further 600 in 2022."

He added: "Our aim with this new state-of-the-art entertainment centre is to give both new and existing customers a unique gaming experience in an environment that reflects the scale of the investment.

"I’m sure those visiting over the next few days and weeks will be as excited about this new MERKUR Slots venue as I am."

Merkur Slots will be hosting a grand opening on March 25 with a big cash giveaway and other prizes.
