From 11.11.2018 only gaming machines that comply with the requirements of the new Gaming Ordinance [Spielverordnung] and the associated Technical Guideline (TR) 5.0 can be operated.
This Gaming Ordinance will lead to several changes. Here you can find out all the important information.
In accordance with TR 5.0 the maximum loss on gaming machines must not exceed € 60.00 per hour (previously € 80.00).
The maximum permissible winnings per hour are € 400.00 (previously € 500.00).
If one of these limits is reached, for a certain time no pay-out can take place between the coin hopper and the bank or vice versa.
If you want to play on a Merkur TR 5.0 Version 1 machine, no activation of the machine is necessary. However, for machines of the TR 5.0 Version 2 model a machine-specific, non-person specific means of identification is prescribed (pin code, card or barcode).
If you want to play on a machine of this type, please approach the service personnel.
