Landlocked Kazakhstan has remained a mystery to the western traveler for generations, unknown from the pages of Marco Polo or Kipling. A handful of outsiders have acquainted themselves with the charisma of this central Asian country, apart from the vendors who plied the Silk Road. But, because Kazakhstan gained its independence in 1991 and especially under the farsighted and favorable presidency of Nursultan Nazarbayev, the country has blossomed. As the nation blossoms, so do Kazakhstan casinos. Flushed with oil currency, it’s boom time in the gaming enterprises of this former soviet republic. There are 7 cities that have within them legal casino faculties of which there are specifically 28 such places. Certainly if you are aspiring for a game, the tables are the only game in town, as Kazakhstan casinos are the only gambling operations authorized there.

Most acclaimed to the constant player should be the passed capital and also largest city in the area, Almaty, that believable Las Vegas of central Asia, claiming no less than 18 casinos and counting. With an ascending nine percent increase every year, the Kazakh economy has enhanced greatly in the last 10 years and with it the Kazakh aspiration for the gambling tables. The cosmopolitan, multi-ethnic, multinational city of Almaty is shielded from its preceding duration as the principal city of a grey Soviet satellite state. New wealth has brought refinement in addition adventure to the place, a fact best embodied by the city’s biggest casino, Casino Viva. One of a chain, this exceptional Kazakhstan casino hotel can display 26 games tables and ninety three gaming machines.

What’s more, the mania for web poker hasn’t gone disregarded in Kazakhstan casinos with the breakthrough of video poker quickly becoming a leading choice. Outside of Almaty, the high-spirited casino player is also served; for instance, the capital Astana has 5 casinos, the premium one among them being one of the Casino Zodiak chain that enjoys not less than 20 card tables. If that isn’t actually enough for individuals, casinos are also further afield in the cities of Aktobe, Kokshetau, Pavlodar, Shimkent, and Ust-kamenogorsk. It is obvious, in any case, that the Kazakh admiration for the green baize and clink of chips is not stated, since the vice-foreign minister recently went to Macao and Hong Kong. The visit was considered to be a "short but fruitful" trip created to study the casino businesses of these towns and instigate preference in Kazakhstan’s nascent casino industry. Actually, a possible direct air link has been endorsed between Almaty and Hong Kong or Macao, which would bolster eagerness for this once attractive location soon set to become the preference of the in-crowd.
