INSIGHTGERMANY CASINOS


announced recently that Germany’s casino revenue has returned back to the sales level of 12 years ago. Is this true? If so what is behind the increase?


Germany’s gambling industry has had difficult times since 2001, where some casinos were shut down. Most of us did their homework and moved on to enter the 21st Century. Of course, we all suffer due to the still not regulated online-market. Especially during the last two years the German casinos have enjoyed huge success due to regulations in the arcade- market. Slots at the casinos became much more interesting for former arcade players. Some of the producers reacted and created their own casino versions of arcade-slots.


Today, German casinos make about 75-80 per cent of their gaming revenues with slots, the rest comes from table games, which do not fit anymore to the lifestyle of younger generations as a permanent interest. The average age is much higher in that area than at the slots.

Unfortunately, the new law, which is supposed to regulate the online- market from July 1 2021 on, will not be successful either.


Until then and during the last years, German casinos try to move on through not only offering regular games, but new things as well – like events, parties, restaurants, nightlife and so on.


What lies ahead for the Bad Homburg casino?


Due to our take-over in 2013 we were able to rebuild the casino and start a new chapter in the long history of our house much earlier than our competitors. We did that with no hesitation, renovating our old casino in a very classical way, which our customers accepted gladly.


Your question “what lies ahead” is not easy to answer because we are a living casino, trying out new things, rebuilding our gaming areas all the time. The next step will be a new presentation of our automatic roulette in a very lively entertainment style.


During the last years, quite a number of our personnel, which belonged very often more then 30- 40 years as our staff, took their pension. Due to our convincing concept we succeeded in attracting young women and men not only from

As for the management it is a great pleasure to rebuild our team, which is very motivated in developing our casino all the time, sometimes in larger steps, sometimes in small ones. We are very optimistic that the history of our casino will last very much longer than our now almost 179 years.
