Shangri La is a well-known brand that everyone who is at least a little interested in gambling knows about. This name has been known since 1992, when the first exquisite casino opened in Moscow under the leadership of the British. Michael Boettcher’s Storm International, which manages the brand, came to the post-Soviet space as it saw the potential in this area. At the same time, the business was built strictly according to European standards with paramount attention to the interests of guests and fair play. Today Shangri La is available in Belarus, Georgia, Armenia and Ukraine. A sister network, Storm Casino, operates in Germany. But first things first.
The Shangri La casino, as well as several other VIP complexes, has been operating in Moscow from 1992 to 2009. Units were known for their luxury, fair play and instant payouts. It was here that the famous guest took 2,000,000 dollars, which literally stirred up Moscow. The network was incredibly successful until the government decided to move all casinos to gambling zones.
The Shangri La management decided to leave Russia, but at the same time to develop in neighboring countries. This is how Shangri La Minsk, Yerevan and Tbilisi started their work. The complexes immediately became popular, as it was here that guests from Moscow, who knew Shangri La very well, came. And in 2021, two luxury divisions were opened – Shangri La Kyiv and Shangri La Kharkiv.
