Member of the local Barnaul City Duma suggested moving the gambling zone “Siberian coin” from Altai to the Talmen district of the Altai Territory. His proposal, he voiced in the round table “The image of the future of the Altai Territory.”
The MP believes that the Talmen district has an advantageous geographical location (located on the border of the Altai Territory and the Novosibirsk region) and developed infrastructure (it is located on the route “Altai-Kuzbass”).
He also mentioned that Russia has similar precedents. The gambling zone “Azov-City”, located on the territory of the Krasnodar and Stavropol Territories, is planned to be moved to Sochi.
It is worth mentioning that gambling zone “Siberian coin” was created by the Russian government in 2009. Altai Palace casino was opened here in 2014 and is the only casino of the gambling zone with 18 gaming tables, 140 slot machines, electronic roulettes, and a poker club.
