Moscow varsity casino shut down
Moscow: Moscow police have shut down an illegal casino operating on the premises of a state university, the interior ministry reported Monday.
The police confiscated four card tables, three roulettes tables and 70 slot machines with counterfeit Novomatik software, and other gambling paraphernalia from the site.
The casino, located at Moscow State University of Instrument Engineering and Informatics, had a daily income of 3 to 5 million rubles ($96,700-$161,000), the police said.
Gambling in Russia has only been allowed in four specially allotted zones since July 2009, driving much of the business underground into a thriving black market.
