The Elite Shangri La Casino Kyiv Has Opened Its Doors

Shangri La is a well-known land-based casino brand in many European countries. The chain belongs to the operator Storm International of Michael Boettcher, which was the first foreign company to decide to open a gambling house in Ukraine. For the new casino location was chosen the building of the Fairmont Grand Hotel in the historical center of the city. Several premises with a total area of 1623.51 m2 on the first floor of the hotel have been allocated for the luxury gambling halls. Here guests can escape from the daily bustling, relax and try their luck in a wide variety of games.

When designing and carrying out construction work in the new casino, it was necessary to take into account a lot of nuances. The developers have optimally determined the structure of the gambling house: the location of the gambling halls, restaurant, recreation area, office space, etc. The main goal was to create a unique establishment. The existing design was adapted to the brand style, the lighting solutions were radically changed to more technological ones, the cable networks structure was created from scratch, the VIP rooms were made more comfortable.

The business specific presupposes the indispensable condition- ensuring the customers safety. In addition, the work of casino staff should be arranged in such a way that employees move along a predetermined route, excluding accidental walking around the premises. Therefore, when planning and organizing the space, special attention was paid to the premises’ correct zoning, the logistics of the personnel and guests flows, and the comfort and safety of guests.

Another important area for any casino is a cashier zone – a special room where casino funds and chips are stored. It must meet high safety requirements and by its organization, the casino cash desk resembles a bank one. Moreover, the casino’s sum insured and internal documentation are kept in a special safe room, for which the security requirements are even more stringent.

There were certain difficulties associated with the fact that the hotel building is located in the historic center of the city and placing an information sign on the facade, changes the appearance of the building as a whole, thereby violating the city development rules. It was necessary to obtain the appropriate permits and a warrant for such work.

With a huge amount of work done, the brand’s team has created a truly luxurious casino! Everything in Shangri La Casino Kyiv is impressive – from the quality of the premises itself, with large high ceilings and grandiose chandeliers, to elegant VIP areas with private rooms and a completely separate entrance for the most discerning guests. Everything is thought out to the smallest detail!

The gambling house represents a new generation of slot machines featuring the most advanced technologies, dynamic designs and progressive jackpots. Guests are offered 80 machines from the world’s leading manufacturers EGT, Novomatic, IGT, Scientific, as well as an electronic roulette by Gambee, which will soon be expanded to 20 terminals. The casino also has a variety of Mystery and Time jackpots, as well as regular Instant and the most coveted Super Jackpots. In the main hall there are 20 tables for card games and 3 tables for roulette. American roulette is available with bets from $ 2 on straight up and from $ 25 on even chances. There is also blackjack and several types of poker: Texas Hold’em and its separate version Ultimate, Russian, Caribbean and 3-card. Other entertainments include Punto Banco – one of the varieties of baccarat.
