15-Year Concession for Casino Operations:
Paul Gauselmann, company founder and Chairman of the Management Board of the Gauselmann Group reportedly commented: “I’m extremely delighted about receiving the casino concession in our neighboring state of Lower Saxony. Being able to clock up this additional significant milestone in our company’s history, just two years after taking over the North Rhine-Westphalia casinos, makes me and all the employees involved very proud and shows once again that we master the ‘higher school’ of gaming with and centered round money, and that we can act responsibly in this respect.”
Gauselmann reportedly added: ”Now, in autumn 2024, the task is to integrate the Lower Saxony casinos, with their roughly 400 employees, into our company and to welcome them to the world of Merkur.” Paul Gauselmann started the company in 1957 to be now operating as many as 15 casino locations in three German states. The success of the operations governed by the ”Germany’s king of amusement with prizes” is reportedly attributable to the operator’s concept setting quality, economic viability, and financial stability at the forefront of its activities. These features were reportedly the reason to win the latest concession for the German State of Lower Saxony.

I’m certain that we will also be able to set new standards in Lower Saxony and continue to write our story of success with the casinos there.”
