The Altai Palace gaming complex in Siberian Coin will become fully operational in August 2016. general manager of the Altai Palace casino Yevgeny Kosykh told Betting Business Russia.
“By August 2016 we will fully open a hotel and restaurant in the Altai Palace complex. The constructive works and decoration of the restaurant and the hotel are currently under way. “
Kosykh also said that the construction of the second gaming facility in the zone had been suspended, citing a possible increase of the gaming tax as one of the reasons behind this decision.
“We have frozen the construction of the second facility in Siberian Coin. We’ll return to this issue in spring 2017, and its opening will take place in 2017-2018. As soon as the number of visitors doubles and our client base reaches 20-25,000 people, we’ll immediately proceed with the construction of the second game territory. “
The Altai Palace casino was test-launched in November 2014 and currently involves 13 gaming tables, about 100 gambling machines and 3 VIP rooms.
