About all the features of Mercury slot machines
- With the choice of themes, the developer is not very colourful. In its arsenal, there are slots on Ancient Egypt, Asian, about pirates and others. But the biggest part of them is dedicated to fruits and to the classic trademark slots.

Company history and many years of experience
In 1957, Paul Hauselmann founded the Gauselmann Group concern and started supplying slots to ground-based establishments. The gambling businessman has patented more than 200 different products that are still known in many industries to this day. But this article is not about Gauselmann Group, but about Merkur Gaming, which is part of the German concern and was created in 2005. The company is having more than 12,000 people who work in 40 countries around the world, with headquarters in Germany.
Speaking of graphics, Merkur Gaming really falls short from the top brands in the gambling industry. The German company should do better quality and design. The disadvantage is also accessibility, the software is not available in all countries, which is why many online casinos do not have Merkur Gaming slots in their lobby. But the bonus features in which you can win big payout are many. Often when it is a long wait, before triggering, it will bring significant balance recharge. Those who love land-based gaming establishments will appreciate the provider's slots because they always inspire nostalgic emotions.
