Changing the usability of the warehouse into a modern office space, referring in style and character to the main areas of the company’s activity — this is the task STS set for Tétris. The works concerned the interior design and comprehensive modernisation, along with refreshing the façade of the entire STS headquarters in Katowice.
– Converting a warehouse into an office is a non-standard and exciting undertaking. From the executive side, there are many administrative procedures and processes to consider. An experienced team and proven subcontractors are key. STS had high expectations in terms of aesthetics, interior design and cost optimisation of the entire investment. We have prepared a concept changing the functional layout of the building. It was appreciated by the client, and the end result is very impressive – says Tomasz Spalik, Development Director at Tétris.
The Design x Build Tétris team was involved in the project. The designers used the industrial atmosphere of the warehouse in the interior. You can see steel structures, heavy barriers on the mezzanine, and a reinforced concrete ceiling in the conference room. These strong features are complemented by the subject with which STS is strongly associated – i.e. sport. On the walls, we can admire a mural with Diego Maradona and a mural with sketches of sports shoes. There are also a lot of green plants that increase the comfort of working there.
– We wanted it to be a place consistent with a sporty character, and at the same time modern, functional and comfortable. The Tétris company has successfully completed the project of our office in Warsaw in the past, which is why we decided to cooperate again. I am glad that once again, we have been offered a fresh, unconventional concept, which allowed us to achieve an effect that perfectly fits the style of our company and the nature of the facility. We have gained a modern workplace that effectively strengthens the image of STS as an attractive employer – explains Marcin Walczysko, member of the STS management board.
Thanks to the appropriate height of the room, the architects could propose an element that would increase the space and emphasise the industrial character of the building — the mezzanine. In this way, more workspace has been created, and the comfort of employees has been improved. As a result, an office with an area of 540m2 was created, with approximately 60 workstations, two conference rooms, a kitchen and two kitchenettes, a telephone booth and a bedroom for employees on duty.
– In transforming the warehouse into an office space, an essential element was also the change of the building’s facade. Although Tétris specialises primarily in interior design, we decided to entrust the company with this part of the investment. The result exceeded our expectations. They inspired the external appearance of the remaining buildings in the office complex to change according to the presented design. Thanks to this, our Katowice headquarters have a coherent, modern look – adds Marcin Walczysko from STS.
The works were carried out from July 2020 to March 2021. This period coincided with the pandemic and required the implementation of appropriate procedures related to the sanitary regime or precautionary measures. In addition, the STS office operated 24/7 without any problems. Despite many variables, the project was completed on time, and the building successfully passed a set of land-use change audits.

Jonas Warrer, Chief Marketing Officer at GiG, said: “It’s important that GiG Comply will continue to help Merkur, as it does our other partners, to remain proactive and in control of its marketing compliance. We’re delighted to be able to ensure affiliates are fully aligned with their brand and responsible gaming requirements.”

All our brands are operated by local licenses both on and offline and where we abide by the rules. Having GiG Comply on board as a strategic partner is a great starting point as both sides come with a vast knowledge of the igaming world, and with ever changing regulations, we will make a great partnership.”

Pragmatic Solutions is very proud to announce, that Jokerstar Casino (www. jokerstar .de) is live in the regulated German online gaming market.
Kling was established in 1954. The third-generation family-run company operates 165 Joker casino arcades across Germany. One of the casino operator’s highest values is offering its customers the best quality. Therefore, both Joker arcades and their well-trained staff stand out compared to all their competitors. Germany-wide, around 1000 employees contribute to the casino operator’s success. Over the past decades, the company has continued to grow steadily on its solid foundation and is currently the sixth largest land-based operator. Kling is always seeking new opportunities and is therefore now boldly expanding Jokerstar into the regulated online market.
The establishment of the new regulatory regime in Germany to license and regulate online gaming presented an opportunity for Kling to expand their land-based business into the online sector. After a comprehensive vendor evaluation process, Kling chose Pragmatic Solutions to provide the platform technology to support this exciting new phase and ensure local regulatory compliance.
After many months of collaboration with Kling, Pragmatic Solutions implemented all the necessary regulatory controls to enable Jokerstar to meet the strict conditions of the German locally regulated casino market. These measures included enforcement of deposit and betting limits, implementation of problem gambling controls including the “panic button” 24-hr instant cool-off period, integration with the OASIS national self-exclusion database, integrations with the LUGAS central monitoring database, and numerous additional operational and player-experience feature enhancements to give Kling a real advantage in the market.
Pragmatic Solutions is the platform technology sister-company of the industry content leader, Pragmatic Play. The company provides iGaming operators with enterprise platform technologies built around a core Player Account Management (PAM) platform. The Pragmatic Solutions PAM is designed using a modern microservices architecture and contains a player account, wallet, CRM tools, bonus management tools, payment tools, KYC/AML and fraud-prevention services, and is underpinned by rules-based automation throughout. In addition to the PAM, Pragmatic Solutions provides a Content Management System to power the gaming brand frontend clients and an Integrations Hub to connect the operator to many third-party content, payment gateways and services.
For Kling, Pragmatic Solutions presented a full-stack solution to accelerate their time to market and provide a solid technological foundation for Jokerstar.
Juergen Kling, CEO of KLING AUTOMATEN GmbH, explained their choice of Pragmatic Solutions by saying, “We are very excited about the new online opportunity for Kling, and we have ambitious plans for Jokerstar online casino. We have a long-term vision and need a technology partner that can help us enter the market successfully today and provide ongoing innovation and development support in the future to ensure that Jokerstar casino becomes a dominant player in the regulated German market. After a comprehensive evaluation process, we found Pragmatic Solutions to have the right technology, experience in regulated markets, and a strong commitment to supporting our business as we expand into online gaming. We are very excited and proud to announce the launch of Jokerstar.de and the next phase of our partnership with Pragmatic.”
Ashley Lang, Pragmatic Solutions’ CEO, commented on the announcement, “We are delighted to be working with Juergen and the team at Kling in this exciting project. We believe established land-based operators have great potential to lead in regulated markets and to support Kling we have made significant developments to the platform to ensure that it is fully compliant with both the transitional German regime that began on 15 October 2020 and the new Interstate Treaty on Gambling that came into force from the 1 July 2021. We could not be more pleased or proud to be supporting Kling in the launch of Jokerstar casino.”
