Landlocked Kazakhstan has remained a mystery to the western traveler for centuries, unknown from the pages of Marco Polo or Kipling. Several outsiders have acquainted themselves with the enchantment of this central Asian country, apart from the salespersons who plied the Silk Road. However, due to the fact that Kazakhstan achieved its independence in 1991 and particularly under the astute and unselfish presidency of Nursultan Nazarbayev, the country has expanded. As the nation blooms, so do Kazakhstan casinos. Flushed with oil currency, it’s boom time in the gambling companies of this passed soviet republic. There are 7 cities that have among them legal casino provisions of which there are exactly twenty-eight such venues. In truth if you are craving for a wager, the tables are the only game in town, as Kazakhstan casinos are the only wagering operations enabled there.

Most notable to the constant gamer has to be the prior capital as well as the largest city in the area, Almaty, that veritable Las Vegas of central Asia, showing off no less than eighteen casinos and counting. With a climbing nine per cent upsurge per year, the Kazakh economy has developed hugely in the last 10 yrs. and with it the Kazakh craze for the casino tables. The cosmopolitan, multi-ethnic, multinational city of Almaty is invisible from its previous status as the first city of a grey Soviet satellite state. New wealth has brought style and of course fascination 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 have twenty six games tables and ninety-three slot machines.

What’s more, the frenzy for Internet poker has not gone disregarded in Kazakhstan casinos with the introduction of video poker swiftly becoming a favorite. Outside of Almaty, the high-spirited bettor is also served; e.g., the capital Astana has five casinos, the key one amidst them being one of the Casino Zodiak chain that boasts no less than twenty card tables. If that is not enough for individuals, casinos are also to be found further afield in the cities of Aktobe, Kokshetau, Pavlodar, Shimkent, and also Ust-kamenogorsk. It is apparent, for that matter, that the Kazakh adoration for the green baize and clink of chips is not stated, due to the fact that the vice-foreign minister a short time ago visited Macao and Hong Kong. The visit was certified to be a "short but fruitful" trip designed to study the casino resources of these towns and instigate enthusiasm in Kazakhstan’s nascent casino industry. In reality, a plausible direct air link has been touted between Almaty and Hong Kong or Macao, which may lift enthusiasm for this once exotic region soon set to become the pick of the popular crowd.
