Russia.- The Primorye gambling hub in Russia is continuing to develop and there has been no change to the plan to eventually host 12 casino complexes despite slow process, officials say.

Videos have emerged in the Russian media showing the construction of various properties taking place.

The first resort in the zone, Summit Ascent’s Tigre de Cristal, opened to the public in 2015. It was followed almost five years later by Shambhala, which opened at the height of the coronavirus pandemic.

Last year, the construction of the hotel tower for Naga Vladivostok was completed and the casino podium was reported to be at level 2.

The NagaCorp project was put on pause due to the pandemic, but work has restarted and the company estimates that the venue will be completed in 2022.

Once the region’s travel restrictions begin to ease, the gambling hub is expected to be popular destination due to its proximity to Korea, Japan and Northern China.

The zone has faired better than other gambling hubs in the region throughout the pandemic. According to the government, Primorye’s resort attendance dropped by just 24 percent last year.
