10 jobs created as Merkur Slots opens new entertainment centre in Wisbech
Leading gaming company MERKUR Slots has opened a £200K entertainment centre on Wisbech’s Market Place – creating 10 new local jobs in the process.
The opening is part of a nationwide programme that will see MERKUR Slots invest over £5 million on UK high streets over the next 12 months to open new venues, support local economies and create new jobs.
The new business has opened next door to the NatWest Bank in what was the former Age UK charity shop and is just a stone’s throw away from the company’s other premises, which is in the former Hughes Electrical store.

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 Wisbech through the creation of these new jobs.
“Every new venue we open creates an average of 10 new local jobs and we have already generated over 600 jobs across the UK in the last 12 months through developing existing venues and opening new ones.”
The new Market Place venue features the latest digital slot machines, with the emphasis firmly on low-stakes gaming and pay-outs ranging from £5 to £500, and an extensive library of new and classic games. Customers also receive unlimited free refreshments.
“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,” added Mark. “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.”
