Shambala casino based in Russia’s Far East is a version of the Las Vegas strip that attracts bettors from China, Cambodia, Japan, and South Korea. Just like the JackpotCity Online Casino in Canada, this casino encourages high-end players, but it is not necessarily a closed elite club. The central gambling hall runs up to 5200 sq. m, which is larger than any other casino hub in Russia.

Primorye, Russia’s gambling zone is open for real-time gambling and online wagering for those who cannot access the location. So, you can gamble through your phone with dedicated mobile applications.

Advertising posters in the Russian Empire

From the turn of the 19th-20th centuries, advertising posters began to quickly gain popularity in the Russian Empire. Artists often depicted scenes from fairy tales. The first advertising posters used the element of hyperbole, exaggerating the properties of the advertised product.
