Shangri La Network – The Territory of The VIP Holiday and The Original Show
In four CIS countries, there are elegant Shangri La casinos. These are all the gambling houses of one network, which has been operating since 1992. The name came from a mystical country in which everyone could find happiness and prosperity. This concept was implemented when creating a casino: first of all, guests should feel comfortable and be interested, in addition, everyone can win a jackpot. And it really does happen, the most impressive win in the network was 2 000 000 dollars!
The network is managed by the company Storm International, Michael Boettcher, an Englishman who spent many years working in the gambling industry, founded the holding. When he was creating his own casino, he used the experience of the most successful and respected institutions of the world.
In Shangri La, the whole set of classic games is represented, ranging from roulette and all sorts of card games, ending with the most modern slot machines. Guests with different tastes can choose their own format of the game: with small or large stakes. VIP halls work for high rollers.
All institutions offer not only a game, but also additional entertainment. For example, each season launches themed events with big prizes. The lucky ones have already become the owners of exclusive Harley Davidson, Maserati and cash prizes of hundreds of thousands of dollars.
An exceptional feature of Shangri La, Darren Keane noted, are the draws of additional jackpots. The casinos allocate a special prize fund for players who prefer slots, and another one for the table players. Lotteries are usually held once a week, and anyone who makes bets can get a prize of several hundred or even thousands of dollars.
Junket tours are another advantage of the Shangri La network. You can go to any of the casinos in Minsk, Yerevan, Tbilisi or Riga on a vacation. Although, throughout the world this practice has existed for more than half a century, on the territory of the CIS gambling is still a novelty. And the pros of the junket tours are huge! For the price of chips, the guest receives comfortable accommodation, meals, drinks, transfers, flights, excursions and much more. A vacation in Shangri La can be planned individually.
