In May 2021, a licensed casino of a large international chain Shangri La was opened in Kyiv. The establishment is ready to receive guests in a five-star hotel. It offers a classic set of the most popular games. As well as the most modern slots from IGT, EGT, Scientific Games and Novomatic. All popular slot machine manufacturers that exist today will be presented in the slot hall. The size of bets and jackpots will be quite interesting for discerning guests of the complex.
And despite the fact that the opening of this casino was planned for a week later, even on the opening day, the casino was visited by several dozen guests. Visitors were offered dishes from top chefs, an exquisite gastronomic menu, light relaxing music, and all this was accompanied by gambling. Soft carpets, comfortable armchairs, modern equipment, subdued light are conducive to the game.
At the time of opening, there were 20 gaming tables and 80 slot machines in the halls. Additionally, the company has ordered 20 more slot machines and has a space for at least 4 new gaming tables. At the present time the casino has 300 people. The management plans to expand the casino and ask the hotel for even more space, hoping that Shangri La Kyiv will be popular with local customers and international players.
“It is great that at last there is an opportunity to open a Shangri La Casino in Kyiv. It is a magnificent city, but its main wealth is its people. I was impressed by the honesty and openness of the Ukrainians. And I’m glad to build a business with my Ukrainian colleagues. Since Shangri La is a renowned chain with high standards, it has the ability to confidently enter new markets. The best personnel and professional management is concentrated here. First of all, we are focused on those people who want to enjoy the game as a process. We are interested in people coming to us and winning. And the new establishment will offer wealthy people all the best” – says Michael Boettcher, the Storm International founder a few minutes after the official opening.
“We have been preparing for the launch of a new casino for a long time, and finally this day has come. We support the rule of opening casinos only on the basis of hotels and admitting people over the age of 21 to play. The adoption of the legalization law is a huge plus for the gambling industry. This contributes to the development of the country’s economy and makes it possible to create new jobs. Our new professional employees help the brand grow and strive to be the best in the online gaming industry” – noted Darren Keane, Storm International CEO.

The company started its activity in 1992, having launched its first casino in Moscow. Its creator, Briton Michael Boettcher, had begun his career in the industry as a dealer twenty years earlier and devoted his whole life to the casino, so he is well aware of what to offer even for the most discerning players. After it became known about the closure of the gambling business in Russia, the holding turned its attention to the neighboring countries. In 2008, the brand expanded with the opening of a casino in Armenia. In subsequent years, the creators managed to launch gambling complexes in Belarus and Georgia, as well as a separate slot halls network in Germany.
Over three decades of successful activity, Storm International has managed to establish a certain quality standard in the market, both in terms of games and the services provided. The same is true for their online sites. These virtual platforms have a fantastic selection of all kinds of live casino games, thousands of slots, card and table games, scratchcards and a variety of pre-match and in-game bets.
Focusing on the basic principles of the brand, the new place has all the prerequisites to become the best in the network. The main feature of the Shangri La Kyiv casino is a high level of service, a large number of games and slot machines. The young unit will not disappoint even the most demanding customers who are interested not only in the casino, but also in the availability of additional features.
