Russians And The Gambling Culture

Despite the prohibition of most casinos in Russia, this nation has a penchant for games of chance. Russians even have a special word to describe the feeling of excitement experienced when placing a bet or playing a game – azart. If you are wondering if they are a gambling nation, we have the answer.

Azart can refer to just about anything. It can be used to describe an argument between friends, a dare, a card game or any other thrilling situation. While Russians cannot play on popular sites like Captain Cooks casino, they have plenty of local options. For example, the most popular card game is called “Durak” (“the fool”).
