Thus, there is a law "on state regulation of activities on the organization and conduct of gambling and on amendments to certain legislative acts of the Russian Federation". According to it, each region can include only 1 gambling zone. However, after the amendments to the law, Sochi and Crimea were introduced, as places where land casinos are allowed to build.
