Armenia is comparably new to the gaming industry. The first casinos in Armenia appeared after the collapse of Soviet Union. However, today the industry is booming. Shangri-La and Senator-Royale are one of the biggest casinos in the country.
The first gaming congress in Armenia took place on 19 and 20 November, 2015 in Yerevan. The congress became the meeting arena for representatives of gambling business, suppliers of equipment for casinos and poker clubs, developers of software for betting shops, online casinos, slots, as well as payment systems representatives and, last but not least, investors.
On 19 November there was a conference in Best Western Congress Hotel. “New tools for attraction of players to the casino”, “Existing Bitcoin casino market analytics: casino, forecasts and prospects” and “How to start your business in the country” are several of the important topics that are going to be discussed during the conference. The speakers were from the Ministry of Justice, representatives from betting companies and others. At the Demo-Zone the producers of equipment demonstrated their products.
The next day, on the 20th of November the participants were taken to a business trip to the biggest casinos around the country to further deepen their knowledge and understanding of the details of local gaming industry.
