According to the Property Relations Department of Kuban, for the first quarter of 2017 three casinos of the Azov City gambling zone were visited by 112 thousand people whereas the Sochi Casino and Resort casinos in a Krasnaya Polyana gambling zone took 87 thousand clients for the same period. In total two gambling zones of Krasnodar Krai were visited by 199 thousand people in January-April period of the current year.
It is interesting that despite continuous threat to close down f Azov City and the casino operation in Sochi, the popularity of the first gaming zone does not decrease. In 2016 Azov City gambling establishments were visited by 464,7 thousand people, which is only 4,7 thousand less than in 2015.
Let’s recall that in 2015 the authorities of the Russian Federation made the decision to close down the Azov City gambling zone in connection with creating a new casino resort in Sochi. Since the current Russian legislation allows the operation of only one gambling zone on the territory of the Russian Federation. The Azov City gambling zone has to be liquidated until the end of 2018. Today all three Azov City casinos work on in the routine mode.
