The approved Russian zone also known as Amberland is aiming toward becoming a tourist and recreational area with diverse facilities for family entertainment, in addition to the ever-present gambling element.

Russia welcomed the first casino in the upcoming gaming hub called Sobranie last week without great fanfare as the first of five special integrated gambling zones sees the light of the day in the country which banned casinos in 2009.

The first of five zones to be opened was the Primorye Integrated Economic Zone (PIEZ) located far east in the city of Vladivostok.

Magic Crystal was the first facility to be opened in the region which is fully operational since April 2016 and also offers slot machine games to their customers and visitors.

Once fully operational, Yantarnaya gambling zone will host 15 casinos, 21 hotels, a water park, a theatre, stadiums, concert halls SPA salons and shops, adding to the Sochi gambling hub Russia expects will be another gambling hub in business by 2029.
