These often come with an entrance fee, making it difficult for all gamblers but high rollers to gain access.
Nowadays there are 12 or more casinos in the new gambling zone of Kapshagay, close to Almaty, while the Shchuchinsk zone close to Astana houses more casinos.
Since then, more than 500 illegal casinos have been shut down in the capital Astana alone.
Maximum winnings through bonus spins capped at €100. However, in 2007, the government introduced a new law forcing all casinos to relocate to two gambling zones close to the capital Astana, and the commercial capital Almaty.
Winnings and bonus amount are subject to 75x wagering requirement. Prior to 2007, there was a glut of casinos spread around the country of Kazakhstan, catering mainly to the country’s high rollers, and often operating unscrupulously in a poorly regulated market.
15x wagering (game weighting applies) on deposit and bonus to make the bonus balance withdrawable. Skrill & Neteller deposits aren't eligible for bonus.
Minimum €10 deposit required unless otherwise stated.
Despite confusion over the exact law, with some suggesting that online casinos in Kazakhstan are actually illegal, there appears to be one licensed online casino in Kazakhstan.
Altyn Alma is available in the country, and in Russian, and appears to hold a valid license, despite suggestions that the government does not hand them out.
However, foreign based websites are not regulated, so any Kazakhstan based gambler looking to enjoy themselves online can easily turn to one of the myriad of websites, many of which are available in Russian.
