Illegal Russian Casinos Just Role regarding the Gaming Picture
The old coal mining adage that ‘I owe my soul towards the company store’ has taken on bizarre meaning with the recent discovery of an underground immigrant slave garment manufacturing ‘village’ in Moscow, replete with a casino that is equally illegal. The town that is underground held 200 Asian employees held captive against their might was found by police in yet another raid, one of hundreds to take place throughout Russia; a country where gambling, like vodka, generally seems to be in the genes (not forgetting, jeans).
Just Say Nyet to Gambling
Massive police raids of the nation’s underground (not necessarily literally) casinos have led to some 662 shutdowns up to now, while the Russian Interior Ministry’s Moscow workplace says that the ancillary special ops task force has slammed the doors on 4,747 bones that have been supplying moonshine that is illegal, to the tune of 31 tons of booze in most. Your livers will later thank you, Russkies.
The casino cloud that is prohibition-style hangs over Russia started back in summer of 2009; that’s when gambling in all but four significantly hard-to-access designated gambling regions were pronounced as illegal gambling areas. (We’re pretty sure booze isn’t illegal anywhere there, but maybe absolutely nothing in short supply of ethyl alcohol will give their jaded livers a jolt anymore).
