As an experienced and undoubtedly successful businessman, but also knows Paul Gauselmann Of course, that the positive figures from the past financial year will certainly not be achieved at the end of 2020, certainly cannot be exceeded. Because of the economic and political starting point in USA alone, it should not be easy for the success company from the gambling in the near future to let the development curve continue to rise.

Products and business activities of the Gauselmann Group have focused primarily on the Location USA. However, the formerly prospering American business has not been made more and more stagnating or declining economically since then that the American government was put in the course of corona pandemic. Also the Legal innovations of the federal and state governments, especially to game stores, brake an undisturbed business.

So it cannot be ruled out that the Merkur sun will soon no longer be popular in American gastronomy and casino.
