The first licensed casino under a well-known international brand was opened in Kyiv
In mid-May 2021, a premium gambling house was opened in the metropolitan Fairmont Grand Hotel. The casino is located on the 1500 square meters of the hotel’s first floor. This is a very niche and exclusive project – 20 gaming tables and 80 slot machines. The establishment works only on premium equipment. Among the slots there are only the newest machines such as IGT, EGT, Scientific games and Novomatic. The gaming tables are made of premium quality wood and cloth. The staff team consists of 300 specialists.
“We have opened the first legal premium casino in Kyiv – Shangri La Casino. This is a wonderful city where I met a lot of honest and open people. It is great when your views and principles of building a business coincide with the attitude to work of your partners. I really like to deal with my Ukrainian colleagues. We managed to bring to life a truly exclusive project and create a unique gambling complex in the premium segment in Ukraine. In addition to the opened gambling house, we are also planning to build a separate Las Vegas-style resort-hotel-casino, which will become a point of attraction for players from different countries” – shared Michael Boettcher.
“The opening of a new unit in Kyiv is a long-awaited and significant event for our company. At last a law was passed according to which casinos can only be opened in four- to five-star hotels. This is very sensible. It is important that people who like to play and are ready to come from other countries for this purpose play. The geographic location of Ukraine is also ideal for this. You have an excellent opportunity to develop the economy and make Kyiv a resort for the whole of Europe and the Middle East. Just look at Ukraine on a map and you will see that it is the central place in the world. In the west there are the resorts of the United States – in the east – China, and right in the middle – Ukraine. You have an incredible opportunity” – says Darren Keane.
After the speeches of the officials and the solemn cutting of the red ribbon, the guests were invited to the casino halls and were offered games for every taste. The casino also has several VIP lounges with the option to play at higher bets. An individual approach to each guest and a premium level of service are the Shangri La Casino Kyiv well known features.
Now the staff of the new casino is about 300 employees. And they learn not only the intricacies of games, but also languages. Foreign guests are always welcome here. In the casino you will be spoken to in the language that suits you. All staff speak Russian, Ukrainian, Turkish and English.
Among other things, Shangri La Casino Kyiv opens its doors to the world’s popular gambling tourism. Special offers for players include hotel accommodation, airport transfers and other exciting bonuses.
