Jobs created as entertainment centre opens its doors

Gaming company MERKUR Slots has continued its investment in UK high streets by opening a new entertainment centre in Leeds.

The venue on Harehills Lane opened this week, creating 10 jobs in the process.

Bringing a casino experience to Leeds, the venue provides the latest in digital slot machines, with the emphasis on low stake gaming along with free refreshments.

Mark Schertle, chief operating officer of MERKUR Slots’ parent company MERKUR Casino UK, said: “Bringing a new state-of-the-art entertainment centre to Leeds is an exciting development for MERKUR Slots.

“We pride ourselves on our continued investment in the high street, while 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.”
