Landlocked Kazakhstan has been left a mystery to the western traveler for generations, unknown from the pages of Marco Polo or Kipling. Several outsiders have been enlightened on the charisma of this central Asian country, aside from the vendors who plied the Silk Road. Nevertheless, considering that Kazakhstan achieved its independence in 1991 and notably under the clever and unselfish presidency of Nursultan Nazarbayev, the country has grown. As the nation flourishes, so do Kazakhstan casinos. Flushed with oil dollars, it’s boom time in the playing enterprises of this long ago soviet republic. There are seven cities that have amid them legal casino provisions of which there are precisely twenty-eight such places. Actually if you are ready for a game, the tables are the only game in town, as Kazakhstan casinos are the only gambling operations allowed there.

Most acclaimed to the inclined player has to be the one-time capital as well as the grandest city in the region, Almaty, that veritable Las Vegas of central Asia, exhibiting no less than 18 casinos and counting. With an escalating 9 percent increase each year, the Kazakh economy has enhanced excessively in the last ten years and with it the Kazakh craze for the betting tables. The cosmopolitan, multi-ethnic, multinational city of Almaty is not recognizable from its preceding period as the central city of a grey Soviet satellite state. New wealth has brought glamor and also thrill to the place, a fact best embodied by the city’s grandest casino, Casino Viva. One of a chain, this awesome Kazakhstan casino hotel can exhibit 26 games tables and 93 coin-operated machines.

What’s more, the mania for cyber poker has not gone unseen in Kazakhstan casinos with the breakthrough of video poker hurriedly becoming a leading choice. Outside of Almaty, the adventurous gambler is also served; for example, the capital Astana has five casinos, the key one among them being one of the Casino Zodiak chain that holds not less than twenty card tables. If that isn’t actually enough for persons, casinos are also found further afield in the cities of Aktobe, Kokshetau, Pavlodar, Shimkent, along with Ust-kamenogorsk. It is very clear, for that matter, that the Kazakh favoritism for the green baize and clink of chips isn’t stated, due to the fact that the vice-foreign minister in recent times went to Macao as well as Hong Kong. The visit was declared to be a "short but fruitful" trip put together to study the betting resources of these towns and arouse favor in Kazakhstan’s nascent casino business. Indeed, a potential direct air link has been established between Almaty and Hong Kong or Macao, which could boost eagerness for this once charismatic destination soon set to become the favorite of the elite.
