Merkur Slots is a new site, on a brand new platform, that was launched towards the end of 2021. It’s not a new name though – they operate more than 200 venues across the UK.
The Merkur venues are all over the place and you’ve probably got one on a High Street near you. They offer an attractive range of popular slot machines and Merkur Slots seeks to replicate that online, featuring games such as Cleopatra, Fishin’ Frenzy and Thai Flower that have been massive hits on and offline. All three of these games, plus Starburst and eight other all time favourites, feature in the “eligible games” area which is where the generous welcome bonus has to be used. Once you’ve completed the wagering requirements, there’s a wide range of other games to choose from, mostly by NetEnt, Red Tiger, IGT and Blueprint. It’s the latter two that supply the progressive jackpots, in the form of Megajackpots and Jackpot King.
The Live Casino area is powered by Evolution and there’s a full range of game shows from Dream Catcher to Cash or Crash as well as roulette, blackjack and other table games.
One thing we really like about Merkur Slots is that it’s super easy to check the RTP of a game from the lobby (just click on the little information symbol). Most of the games also have free demo versions, but you’ll need be logged in and have your account age verified before you can access these.
The promotions page looks promising; when we visited there were three time limited specials running (a pair of stake & gets and a raffle) so it seems there’ll be plenty going on at Merkur Slots.
The site looks equally good on mobile and computer screen; it’s been designed so that on a mobile, some of the slot tiles are off screen and you need to swipe to see them (the same applies to the slot game categories. This can take a little getting used to if you’ve previously played somewhere with the more usual two column mobile setup.
Anyone who’s played at their land based venues will want to give the online version of Merkur Slots a go, and the combination of lots of extra games and a very attractive welcome offer will undoubtedly make it a preferred destination even for those who haven’t.
There’s a well written Responsible Gambling policy which goes into detail about how to use the safer gambling tools. Merkur Slots offers loss limits as well as the ubiquitous deposit limits, and both can be set daily, weekly and/or monthly. New limits take effective immediately if smaller than previously set, and after a 24 hour cool off if larger than previously set. You do have to navigate to Account Settings to use the tools.
