Merkur Casino Slots and Games
Merkur may not be a name that springs to mind when Merkur may not be a name that springs to mind when discussing online gaming but they are a giant offline and in Northern Europe .
Part of the massive Gauselmann Group they have annual revenues in the billions and employ thousands of people.
In offline casinos they are among the biggest players but online they have until recently remained quite specialist. Their specialism is slots with a focus on mechanics (usually highly volatile ones) rather than graphics (they often look like they were drawn by a child).
When it comes to exciting bonus rounds they are hard to beat, they just promise so much. Think Novomatic but taken up a few notches.
Merkur Gaming Slots And Games
Knight’s Life – This one sums up Merkur for me. It’s a simple game with almost laughable graphics and a no-expense-made soundtrack. It doesn’t matter though, it’s brilliant!
You’re not going to enjoy a lengthy leisurely gaming session on this it’s likely to kill you quickly or have you booking a holiday on the winnings. Just pay for the three horses, it’s all very much uphill from there.
Railroad – Another simple looking game. This is a bit less intense than Knight’s Life but it’s still great fun. I once had free spins on this which retriggered so much that it took almost an hourt to play though them all – 850+ spins.
If that happened on Knight’s Life I’d probably have got a new house of it – it won’t so don’t chase it – please!
Magic Monk Rasputin – This is a true gamblers game. It’s all about holding your nerve. Wins can rack up or be gambled but if Rasputin shows up then the Mad Monk will take everything you have in the pot.
It’s a genuinely exciting experience when you have a few quid and you’re desperately willing Rasputin to stay away. It’s an illustration of the innovation that Merkur is capable of but rarely deploys. It seems we all just want to play the classics.
There are of course loads more Merkur slots and games but on the whole (and this is not a bad thing) they are pretty similar.
