A significant gambling event occurred in November 2017 in Riga – SL Casino was opened. It is a part of Shangri La chain, run by the famous international holding Storm International. Darren Keane, Storm International CEO, said that the Latvian gambling market is well developed, they have many strong operators there, but there is an unfilled need in the VIP niche. It is in this target market that the SL casino will work.
The new gambling complex is located in the heart of Latvian capital at the newly renovated Grand Hotel Kempinski. SL Casino is located on two floors occupying the area of 625 square meters. On the first floor, there is a large slot hall with 51 new slot machines. On the second, there are 10 tables and a VIP room for fans of high stakes.
A distinctive feature of Shangri La chain, Darren Keane said, is the elegant decoration. The interiors are designed in the style of Art deco. Precious wood, English carpets, furniture from Italy, Italian fabrics, special lamps that create soft lighting were used to create a unique player experience.
