Lyubov Loginova to analyze gambling business in Russia and Ukraine

Alsart Chairman to open RGW-2010 conference

(Russia).- Chairman of the Board of Directors of Alsart Group, Lyubov Loginova, will make a speech at the conference Russian Gaming Week 2010, to be held in June 15 in Moscow. Her keynote topic: "Gambling and the lottery business in the CIS 2010: realities, perspectives and alternatives" will open the program of the event.

"

Although the casinos disappeared in Russia and in Ukraine a year ago, the gambling markets there still exist. By my estimates, that volume is not less than in 2008", - says Lyubov Loginova, -"The markets have just transformed; they have taken other forms, but left the same gambling content."

It's not a secret that after the closure of gambling establishments in 2009 in Russia, pseudo-lottery halls with slot machines begun to appear, disguised as lottery terminals, Internet clubs with direct access to online casinos, and simply illegal gambling halls. The same situation exists in Ukraine after the ban of gambling there.

The authorities fight with such establishments, but results are unsuccessful. Shadow gambling business in the countries is growing at the backdrop of widespread corruption, the reluctance of some operators to abandon the usual source of income and the indifference from most of the former casino visitors to the legality of the institution in which they play.

However in difficult conditions for conducting honest business, for the last year new forms of work have appeared, corresponding to the current legislation. Nowadays, the Alsart Group is one of the few commercial structures which survived the gambling industry crisis in the CIS countries, rebuilt their business and are actively developing one in the new reality.

"I hope a frank conversation about what's happening in the industry; what decisions are "working" on the market and what to expect in the near future will be held at the RGW 2010", - said Lyubov Loginova, - "I am ready for such a constructive dialogue.”
