Shambala was the second casino to open in the Primorye Economic Zone in Russia. The grand opening of the RUB$3.5 billion (US$45 million) project was quite an event
Attendees witnessed the 5,200 square meters of gaming space, a restaurant, two fast food venues and a theater. The second phase of the casino will go forward in 2022. A range of hotels will complement a golf course, amusement park, water park, diving club and assorted family and sports recreation facilities.
Developers will ultimately be forking out RUB8 billion (US$104 million). Primorsky Krai Development Corporation is counting on 100,000 visitors each year. It will not be a closed club for the elite by any means.
According to General Director of Shambhala CJSC, Maxim Smolentsev.
“Our casino will be truly popular where people are always in a good mood, a part of an incessant holiday, regardless of how much they are ready to bet on the game.”
The launch of Tigre de Cristal in 2015 was the first operation in the areas. NagaCorp and Diamond Fortune have ongoing developments. All in all, an amazing 1.2 million tourists will head to the gambling zone year after year.
