The Merkur division of the Gausselmann group infuriated Rajan Zed, the president of the Universal Society of Hinduism, because it used Hindu religious icons in one of its slot games. The 5 reel slot that features 50 paylines and Lord Shiva as a Wild was described as “wholly inappropriate and regrettable” by Zed. The statesman added that Lord Shiva is a very important figure in Hinduism and he shouldn’t be used for promotion of gambling on slots. Zed also called on Gausselmann to withdraw the game and apologise for offending Hindu devotees.
