Gaming company MERKUR Slots has continued its investment in the high street by opening an entertainment centre in Smethwick.

The venue on Bearwood Road opened to the public this week and has created 10 jobs.

It will provide the latest in digital slot machines, with the emphasis on low stake gaming and pay-outs ranging from £5 to £500.

Mark Schertle, COO of MERKUR Slots’ parent company MERKUR Casino UK, said: “Bringing a new state-of-the-art entertainment centre to Smethwick is an exciting development for MERKUR Slots. We pride ourselves on our continued investment in the high street, whilst giving customers a unique gaming experience.

“It also means a lot to us to be able to support the local community and economy through the creation of new job opportunities at the venue. We are hoping to create at least 500 jobs nationwide by the end of this year.”
