Kazakhstan Casinos

[ English ]

Landlocked Kazakhstan has existed as a mystery to the western traveler for generations, unknown from the pages of Marco Polo or Kipling. Some outsiders have acquainted themselves with the enchantment of this central Asian country, apart from the merchants who plied the Silk Road. Yet, considering that Kazakhstan acquired its independence in 1991 and particularly under the clever and unselfish presidency of Nursultan Nazarbayev, the country has expanded. As the nation develops, so do Kazakhstan casinos. Flushed with oil capital, it’s boom time in the playing businesses of this long ago soviet republic. There are 7 cities that have within them legal casino faculties of which there are actually twenty-eight such spots. Indeed if you are ready for a bet, the tables are the only game in town, as Kazakhstan casinos are the only gambling operations at liberty there.

Most critical to the constant casino player should be the previous capital as well as the greatest city in the country, Almaty, that apparent Las Vegas of central Asia, showing off no less than 18 casinos and counting. With a soaring 9 per cent development per annum, the Kazakh economy has expanded greatly in the last ten years and with it the Kazakh demand for the casino tables. The cosmopolitan, multi-ethnic, multinational city of Almaty is shielded from its preceding status as the chief city of a grey Soviet satellite state. New wealth has brought enchantment and of course fascination to the place, a fact best embodied by the city’s largest casino, Casino Viva. One of a chain, this extravagant Kazakhstan casino hotel can have 26 games tables and 93 slots.

What’s more, the craze for cyber poker hasn’t gone without observation in Kazakhstan casinos with the innovation of video poker swiftly becoming a leading preference. Outside of Almaty, the fearless bettor is also served; as a reference, the capital Astana has 5 casinos, the chief one amongst them being one of the Casino Zodiak chain that boasts absolutely no less than 20 card tables. If that is not nearly enough for gamers, casinos are also to be found further afield in the cities of Aktobe, Kokshetau, Pavlodar, Shimkent, also Ust-kamenogorsk. It is distinct, for that matter, that the Kazakh delight for the green baize and clink of chips isn’t stated, since the vice-foreign minister a short while ago went to Macao as well as Hong Kong. The visit was certified to be a "short but fruitful" trip put together to study the games resources of these towns and arouse preference in Kazakhstan’s nascent casino business. In reality, a plausible direct air link has been established between Almaty and Hong Kong or Macao, which could bolster eagerness for this once exotic area soon set to become the preference of the elite.
