Did you know that Minsk is almost like Las Vegas?..
WELCOME TO VEGAS!
"I think, when people go shopping and buy goods on sales, they think: “Now I hit the jackpot!” And then, it is the neighboring game machine that hits the jackpot.”
“I would compare a gambling slot machine with a credit line: if you lose money – it’s like you pay for a credit, if you win money – you’ve got some money, and you know that you will pay it back, only you don’t have to pay the interest.”
“When lucky cards fall, you realize that just now you have multiplied your fortune from nothing, and you are strongly inclined to keep on. If you feel that you are about to fail, you’ve lost once or twice, you realize that it’s time to quit. It is better to get scared a bit and leave, with some money, rather than to leave – intrepid and flat broke.
“After casinos were closed in Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan, Minsk have become a gambling capital of the CIS,” says Diana Kenchadze, coordinator of the Russian Gaming Week. “Belarus is the only market from the former USSR, where gambling games are not banned or restricted to some zones.” (according to materials of Narodnaya Volya newspaper)
