Russia – Merkur Gaming installs at Shambala Casino in Azov City

By - 15 June 2016

Merkur Gaming is continuing to progress in the Russian market with its most recent success story relating to the placement of Avantgarde SLT slot machines at the Shambala Casino in Azov City.

The casino, which is hopeful of remaining open beyond 2019 when the whole Azov City gaming zone has to close, was keen to invest in its future no matter how unsure that may be.

The recent extension at Shambala Casino has enabled casino management there to create the necessary preconditions for this casino to become a world-class, top-rating gaming destination. Increased floor space, increased service, a larger team are all factors that go hand-in-hand with the requirement for increased world-class gaming equipment. The Avantgarde SLT slot machines from Merkur Gaming are a perfect fit here.

Alexander Moor, International Sales Manager at Merkur Gaming, said: “Our business relations date back to 2014 and since this date we have been in close contact with Casino management. The feedback was always positive, but due to insufficient space available on the gaming floor, there were previously no possibilities in the past to place our machines. The extension has now solved this challenge and we are overjoyed that our Avantgarde SLT slot machines now adorn the new beautiful Shambala Casino.”

The Shambala Resort offers plenty of opportunities for guests with 40 gaming tables, more than 800 slots, a five star restaurant and a five star luxury hotel.

Markus Wessler, Sales Director of Merkur Gaming, added: “We are extremely satisfied with the close and professional cooperation with the Casino management. We are confident that players here will take to our slot machines just as well as players in gaming locations all around the world.”

“We are very pleased to present our guests the new ‘made in Germany’ equipment and hope for a long, productive and promising cooperation with Merkur Gaming”, said Yuriy Tkach, CEO of Casino Shambala. Yuriy Tkach has also expressed his optimism despite the government decision to close the Azov Gaming Zone by 2019. “We are hopeful that a lot can change between now and then,” concluded Mr Tkach.
