Landlocked Kazakhstan has remained a mystery to the western traveler for generations, unknown from the pages of Marco Polo or Kipling. A number of outsiders have experienced the charms of this central Asian country, apart from the sellers who plied the Silk Road. But, because Kazakhstan acquired its independence in 1991 and notably under the insightful and unselfish presidency of Nursultan Nazarbayev, the country has progressed. As the nation develops, so do Kazakhstan casinos. Flushed with oil currency, it’s boom time in the playing businesses of this one-time soviet republic. There are seven cities that have amid them legal casino resources of which there are actually 28 such venues. Certainly if you are craving for a challenge, the tables are the only game in town, as Kazakhstan casinos are the only casino operations enabled there.

Most distinguished to the dedicated gambler would be the former capital and grandest city in the region, Almaty, that evident Las Vegas of central Asia, flaunting not less than eighteen casinos and counting. With an escalating nine per cent development yearly, the Kazakh economy has enhanced hugely in the last 10 yrs. and with it the Kazakh appetite for the betting tables. The cosmopolitan, multi-ethnic, multinational city of Almaty is unrecognizable from its last existence as the key city of a grey Soviet satellite state. New wealth has brought enchantment along with exhilaration to the place, a fact best embodied by the city’s greatest casino, Casino Viva. One of a chain, this fabulous Kazakhstan casino hotel can have twenty-six games tables and ninety-three slot games.

What’s more, the rage for web poker has not gone unseen in Kazakhstan casinos with the modernization of video poker hurriedly becoming a leading choice. Outside of Almaty, the fearless contender is also served; for e.g., the capital Astana has 5 casinos, the chief one among them being one of the Casino Zodiak chain that boasts in no way less than 20 card tables. If that isn’t actually enough for gamblers, casinos are also further afield in the cities of Aktobe, Kokshetau, Pavlodar, Shimkent, along with Ust-kamenogorsk. It is very obvious, then, that the Kazakh favoritism for the green baize and clink of chips isn’t stated, given that the vice-foreign minister in recent times went to Macao as well as Hong Kong. The visit was expressed to be a "short but fruitful" trip devised to study the gambling industries of these towns and encourage enthusiasm in Kazakhstan’s nascent casino industry. As a matter of fact, a possible direct air link has been credited between Almaty and Hong Kong or Macao, which might bolster appetite for this once captivating location soon set to become the alternative of the popular crowd.
