Astoria Casino in Kazakhstan

After changes from 2007, and introduction of new gambling law, the number of legal casinos in Kazakhstan decreased drastically. It was the result of introducing only two zones, where gambling is legal - Kapchagay and Schuchinsk. Kapchagay, located close to Almaty, offers gambling lovers  entertainments and much emotion in luxurious Astoria Casino.
