Landlocked Kazakhstan has remained a mystery to the western traveler for several hundred years, unknown from the pages of Marco Polo or Kipling. A number of outsiders have experienced the appeal of this central Asian country, other than the merchants who plied the Silk Road. Regardless, due to the fact that Kazakhstan attained its independence in 1991 and above all under the farsighted and unselfish presidency of Nursultan Nazarbayev, the country has developed. As the nation develops, so do Kazakhstan casinos. Flushed with oil cash, it’s boom time in the betting businesses of this one-time soviet republic. There are 7 cities that have amidst them legal casino provisions of which there are for certain twenty-eight such hangouts. Clearly if you are craving for a gamble, the tables are the only game in town, as Kazakhstan casinos are the only gaming operations enabled there.

Most celebrated to the dedicated bettor would be the previous capital and of course exorbitant city in the region, Almaty, that realistic Las Vegas of central Asia, flaunting no less than eighteen casinos and counting. With an escalating 9% boost each year, the Kazakh economy has grown greatly in the last ten yrs. and with it the Kazakh craving for the gambling tables. The cosmopolitan, multi-ethnic, multinational city of Almaty is shielded from its preceding status as the central city of a grey Soviet satellite state. New wealth has brought refinement and of course adventure to the place, a fact best embodied by the city’s largest casino, Casino Viva. One of a chain, this awesome Kazakhstan casino hotel can claim twenty six games tables and 93 slots.

What’s more, the rage for online poker has not gone without observation in Kazakhstan casinos with the innovation of video poker fast becoming a favorite. Outside of Almaty, the intrepid casino player is also served; for e.g., the capital Astana has 5 casinos, the main one amidst them being one of the Casino Zodiak chain that delights in absolutely no less than twenty card tables. If that is not enough for gamblers, casinos are also located further afield in the cities of Aktobe, Kokshetau, Pavlodar, Shimkent, as well as Ust-kamenogorsk. It is very clear, in any case, that the Kazakh fondness for the green baize and clink of chips isn’t stated, seeing as the vice-foreign minister in recent times went to Macao and Hong Kong. The visit was expressed to be a "short but fruitful" trip constructed to study the casino industries of these towns and empower enthusiasm in Kazakhstan’s nascent casino industry. In fact, a possible direct air link has been endorsed between Almaty and Hong Kong or Macao, which could lift desire for this once captivating place soon set to become the alternative of the elite.
