Germany – Roulette to return to Reinland-Pfalz following 12 week shut downBy Phil - 10 June 2020
Starting next Monday, June 15, the casinos in Bad Neuenahr and Bad Dürkheim in Rhineland-Palatinate will be reopening part of their traditional games rooms with a specially-designed, screen-protected roulette game in operation although card games, including blackjack and poker remain closed.
Slots have been operating at the casinos in Bad Neuenahr, Bad Dürkheim and Nürburg since May 27, following a nine-week shut down.
The casinos are well equipped for the roulette restart with the stipulations of the Infection Protection Act being observed to protect guests and employees. The roulette tables have been converted so that a maximum of four guests can play and each has their own separate, screen-protected play area.
To protect against the spread of the corona virus, the casinos have been completely closed since March 18 due to the official provisions of the state government of Reinland-Pfalz regarding the corona pandemic. The casino team has used this time to carry out renovations and to develop a comprehensive infection protection concept in order to implement measures to prevent the spread of the corona virus in the gaming halls. Hygiene rules such as wearing mouth and nose protection for guests and employees apply to visiting the casinos.
