I was adding new casinos today and noticed Merkur recently acquired a UKGC License for their games and operations. Some of you UK players may have spotted their slots at multiplatforms (I'm sure that's been mentioned on here recently by some UK members) and now they have opened a UK/Euro facing site owned by Merkur Interactive called 'cashino' .

Yes, it's the same name as the Barcrest slot lol. :rolleyes:

So it's an actual Merkur operation and provides their slots as well as Bally, Barcrest, WMS, iSoftBet. A casino with no Netent or MG - Wahey!

So us deprived UK players can now have the joys of Merkur slots at last. Dunno about Canada though. :D

Anyone here into the Merkur games, your general opinions?

These slots are quite popular among a lot of forum members i believe, myself included: of that i'm sure:)
Really simple slots overall, but with very a high playability factor, and pretty much none of their slots have bad pay-outs either :thumbsup:

I play them a lot, but so far only spotted them @ MrGreen (among the Casino's i play at, that is)
I really like a lot of their classics, and among my favorites are Magic Mirror/Dragon Treasure, Knights Life, and Extra 10 Liner, although i was under the impression that was from iSoftBet before...

One of their more recent slots had me quite hooked for a while, almost all deposits into MrGreen went in that bugger:)
Sticky Diamonds was the name, and i thought it to be quite fun.

Just last week also saw a bunch of newer Merkur titles, and am looking forward to play them some more:
Most of their older slots had similar min to max bet progressions, but 2 new ones I've tried started a bit more expensive.

Overall i'd call their slots no-nonsense slots with long term entertainment value.
Simply put, if i were to open a Casino, i would want to have these Games:)

Yes, I have the full list of Merkur slots and their RTP's on my pages and have added the new ones. There are well over 100 now and the Bally Wulff games appear via their platform at casinos such as Sunmaker. Extra 10-liner was always from Merkur but some developers do share games through other platforms as we know with Genesis and Rabcat etc.

Yes, i was aware of that, but i first spotted that 10-Liner back in the day @ 777Casino iirc, and they presented it as one of their own..
After searching online, i also recall the first few hits displaying the same info...of course i already was aware loads of affiliates have incorrect info, but i figured this to be true.:p
Found out later though.

Those Bally Wullf Games are also quite fun: i just now found out that the Sticky Diamonds Game i mentioned above, is actually one of theirs :D
They have a lot of similarity with the Merkur ones...

Forgot to mention that although i am not one that uses the Gamble Button often nowadays, when there is one, the cool Gamble feature on those Merkur slot does still tempt me every now and then:D

Merkur slots are available to Canadians but I haven't played them yet. I've seen a couple of big wins on YT in Knight's Life. I wish they were on mobile, though. I prefer playing slots on my iPad Mini 4 than my hoary old laptop.

I tried them once on energy casino and thought Id never play them again. It wasnt terrible by any means, I was doing pretty big bets and hit many bonuses but I found that all the bonuses paid like 10-20x and thats with many retriggers. I think they have book of dead/novomatic knockoffs if im not mistaken.

so I was like not sure who these guys are but I wont be bothering again.

I have been playing Merkur slots at Slots Magic they have a quite a few there but don't think i can play them all because in the recent winners list a slot called Eye of Horus keeps coming up which i think is a Merkur slot but when i search for it the slot doesn't come up in the search.

I have been enjoying Magic Mirror and Magic Mirror Deluxe 2 which is like Book of RA but with the deluxe version you get extra symbols with rettrigers, I actually have a really nice win from the deluxe version on video which i will upload at some point and i just uploaded 4 videos to my channel from Merkur slots yesterday.

I have also tried a few of the oher slots Extra Wild, Gold of Persia, Vampires, Fire of Eygpt, Dragons Treasure and Knight's Life.

I've only been playing Merkur for a week thanks to Anna's screenshots, must say they are refreshingly simple. Great thing about these slots is that when you hit 5OAK it really pays properly. I think I have five knights screenie from Saturday, 300x and that's only base game.

Now waiting on VS to add more, think they only got 10 or so.

Merkur slots make any Novomatic look like a walk in the park. Proper high variance stuff I found.

I'm a huge fan of Merkur games, I think they're quite different from the offerings of many other providers in several ways. For one thing, more or less all of their titles have some form of big win potential, up to several thousands times your stake. Even on their newer titles! Not only that, but it actually feels possible to achieve these big wins (I've personally had more 1000x+ wins on Merkur games than games from any other software provider).

Really happy to see their games added to more casinos - if you wanted to try out these games previously, your options were pretty limited (especially if you wanted to play their full library of games, not only popular ones like Magic Mirror and Knight's Life). Hope to see more members discovering these games as they become more available. Just know that most of these games are really, really high variance though. :thumbsup:

Mixed comments on this one.
I do not like them at all.

Have an account for ages at Sunnyplayer and played there for a while.
Never managed to get a WD.
Magic Mirror stripped my bank roll there multiple times.

Very very very hard to trigger the Free Spins and I have really gave some of their slots a good bash.
To be honest I find them look very cheap-ish and also the sounds are not great.
Reminds me of Nintendo 16 bit graphs and sounds.

Between them and Novomatic, Novo wins by 5 miles.

Surprised people do actually like them. :):)


There used to be a slot in Dutch b&m casino's called Square Dance,years and years ago.
A proper good old Merkur slot, THAT one I really did like. :)
