Shangri La – History of Success

In the 90s of the last century, gambling enthusiasts in Eastern Europe witnessed the birth of a new brand – Shangri La. In a relatively short period of time, it has become very popular. This happened due to the fact that customers here have always received excellent gaming experiences and vivid emotions here. Today it is a famous chain operated by Storm International. Initially, the Shangri La brand pleased only fans of land-based gambling houses, but over time, all its gaming functionality was also successfully implemented on a virtual gaming platform. 

A new star appears on the global gambling market – Shangri La. All establishments of the network are distinguished by luxurious interior and luxurious design. This has become a kind of visiting card of the Shangri La chain. This is not just a casino. These are palaces-casinos, where thousands of players come for royal leisure. The brand began its history in 1992 in Moscow. At that time, the gambling business flourished there, and it was worth taking advantage of it. This is exactly what the founder of Storm International, Michael Betcher, decided to open a number of gambling halls of the highest level in Russia. Then no one could have imagined that in exactly 16 years Shangri La would leave the Russian gambling market forever. 

Yerevan, Armenia. The long-awaited opening of the Shangri La casino took place. The design of the new establishment was truly royal. Every detail was thought out and appropriate here. Spacious halls were buried in chic and luxury. For gourmets, an elite restaurant with national and European cuisine was opened on the territory of the casino. The casino in Yerevan is famous for regular poker tournaments with impressive prize pools. 

Minsk, Belarus. The brand has expanded with a new establishment in the capital of Belarus. The Shangri La Casino has its own separate building here with a memorable design that cannot be forgotten. Players in this casino are attracted by the unique opportunity to win valuable prizes – not only money, but also luxury cars. Gourmets will also be pleased with the local restaurant. Chef Mark Ulrich, known throughout Europe, does his best to ensure that casino players get here not only gaming, but also culinary pleasure. 

Tbilisi, Georgia. A casino opens in the Georgian capital. The institution is located in the most beautiful, historical place of the city. Nearby is the Peace Bridge, known far beyond the borders of Georgia. Shangri La in Tbilisi is famous for its huge panoramic windows overlooking this unique bridge. Signature elements of the casino’s interior in the Art Deco style will remain in the memory of players who visit it at least once for a long time. 

2021 Kyiv and Kharkov, Ukraine. The youngest establishments of the brand open their doors to players in the first and current capitals of Ukraine. But at the beginning of 2022, due to the war, the brand was forced to close these establishments for many months. These two exquisite play complexes could not remain long without their customers. And thanks to the titanic efforts of the close-knit team of Shangri La, the establishments resumed their work to the delight of many, both local players and guests of these two beautiful Ukrainian cities. 

It is noteworthy that absolutely in every gaming complex of the network there are special VIP clubs. These are ideal places for those who prefer big bets and unforgettable thrills. Here, customers have access to exclusive games, increased promotional offers, free transfers and accommodation, as well as fantastic winnings.
