Moscow Leads Russian Gaming Boom
The gaming industry in Russia is said to be worth a whopping $6 million a year according to figures released by the Russian parliament. Alexander Lebedev who is a deputy of the Russian parliament went on to explain that the wagers were mainly bank rolled by a small number of high-roller players in the capital city, Moscow.
The Russian people are said to be mainly against gambling with many in favour of an outright ban on gambling in the country. A recent survey in the country showed that only 19% of the adult population in the country approve of casinos and slots games.
Analysts have predicted that Moscow could prove to become the worlds next ‘hotbed’ for casino gambling investment, should the mainstream population accept gambling in the country.
