In 2018, the share of foreigners who visited the Krasnaya Polyana gambling zone accounted for 16% of the total numbers. In 2017, this number was just 5%. Thus, the gambling zone saw an 11% increase in the number of foreign players.
“In 2019, the tourist traffic to Krasnaya Polyana is expected to increase by at least 10%. The priority task of the gambling zone in 2019 is to establish direct flights with countries such as China, India and the United Arab Emirates. Gambling is banned in all these three countries, but the demand for gambling has remained, so players will be able to gamble both in Las Vegas, Macau, Monaco, and in Sochi,” said Dmitry Anfinogenov, director for development of the gambling zone Krasnaya Polyana.
In two years, the Sochi gambling zone “Krasnaya Polyana” was visited by 850 thousand people from 146 countries of the world. Sochi casinos were visited by more than half a million people in 2018. In one of the interviews on Betting Business Russia, Dmitry Anfinogenov has also revealed ambitious plans for the development of the gambling zone “Krasnaya Polyana”. The operator is going to open new venues within 5 years. In 10 years they want to become a world leader in the number of gambling establishments.
