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”).

Gambling has always been of interest to the people of Russia, but they have found it hard to access for most of history. For many years, casinos were banned throughout the country, and residents who wanted to stake on table games had to travel elsewhere to do so.

Indeed, this was the premise of Fyodor Dostoevsky’s The Gambler in 1887, which was set in the fictional city of Roulettenberg in Germany. Nowadays, it is possible to travel to Russia for a gambling holiday, as there are some casinos in certain areas of the country. But there are some things you need to know before you visit.

Russian gamblers now have another casino to boast about. 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.

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.

Introduction

The simple answer to the legality of online gambling in Russia masks the complexities of its reality. Jacek Michalski explains what’s legal, what’s not, and what happens anyway.
