Managing Director Gerhard Wilhelm said: “Health protection for our guests and employees is a top priority. With our hygiene and safety concept, we can guarantee safe play operations. Due to the prevailing prevention requirements, the range of games is only available to a limited extent, but we are convinced that we can still offer our guests an entertaining gaming experience.”

Spielbank will stick to the Berlin-COV-2 occupational safety standard set by the Federal Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs. The standard was created in close coordination with the responsible specialist for occupational safety and the company doctor.

Following the trend of other casinos that are opening worldwide, there will be minimum distance requirements, the regular and intensive cleaning of all slot machines, gaming equipment and all relevant areas, as well as the provision of mouth-nose covers and disinfectants. 

The 550 employees of Spielbank Berlin are also being comprehensively trained and prepared for the new gaming operations.  “Given the corona pandemic, normal operation is currently not entirely possible,” Mr Wilhelm said, adding that they are certain that if the course of infection is positive, they can gradually expand the range and, if necessary, loosen further regulations.
