The Gauselmann Group’s Merkur Gaming brand has announced that it recently delivered a new order of Avantgarde SLT slot machines to the Shambala Casino in Russia’s Azov City.
The property recently extended its casino floor – and had thus been seeking “world-class gaming equipment,” according to its chief executive, Yuriy Tkach (pictured, right).
“We are very pleased to present our guests the new Merkur machines and hope for a long, productive and promising cooperation with one another,” he added.

Up until now, Azov City has been one of a handful of jurisdictions in which casinos are allowed – following a 2009 edict outlawing casinos across most of Russia. However, the Russian government recently announced that it planned to close down the Azov Gaming Zone by 2019. Despite this, Tkach has outlined his optimism for Shambala’s long-term outlook. “We are hopeful that a lot can change between now and then,” he said.
Meanwhile, Merkur’s international sales manager Alexander Moor (pictured, left) said he was “overjoyed that our Avantgarde SLT slot machines now adorn the new beautiful Shambala Casino.”
“Our business relations date back to 2014 and since this date we have been in close contact with casino management,” he explained. “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.”
