On April 9, the Gambling Regulatory Commission (KRAIL) announced the issuance of a license to Storm Ukraine LLC. This is the official permission to open a land-based casino under the international Shangri La brand in the legendary five-star Fairmont hotel in the very center of Kiev.
Since December 2021, KRAIL has issued 16 licenses for gambling businesses: 1 for a bookmaker, 4 for land-based casinos, 3 for slot machine halls and 8 for online casinos.
At the moment, Shangri La is the only international brand that has received permission to conduct gambling activities on the territory of Ukraine. The Shangri La brand is well known among players in Eastern Europe. We are confident that the new Shangri la casino at Fairmont will become the leading operator in the Ukrainian gambling business, thanks to its high quality standards, international management and its renowned approach towards responsible gambling.
