10 jobs expected in new £200k Sunderland entertainment centre

A gaming company has opened a £200K entertainment centre on Holmeside in Sunderland – creating 10 new local jobs in the process.

The opening is part of a nationwide programme that will see MERKUR Slots invest over £10m on UK high streets over the next six-months.

Mark Schertle, chief operating officer of MERKUR Slots’ parent company MERKUR Casino UK, said: “We pride ourselves on our continued investment in UK high streets, and so it means a lot to be able to support the local community and economy in Sunderland through the creation of these new jobs.

“Every new venue we open creates an average of 10 new local jobs and we are well on course to create 500 jobs nationwide by the end of the year.”

The Holmeside venue features bingo and digital slot machines, with the emphasis firmly on low stake gaming and pay-outs ranging from £5 to £500, and an extensive library of new and classic games. Customers also receive unlimited free refreshments.

Mark added: “Our aim with this new state-of-the-art entertainment centre is to give both new and existing customers a unique gaming experience in an environment that reflects the scale of the investment, I’m sure those visiting over the next few days and weeks will be as excited about this new MERKUR Slots venue as I am.”
