Players, experts, and developers of gaming software from all over the world have long been familiar with the legendary Storm International brand. The company has gone through a difficult but confident path from a start-up brand to the largest holding. A successful business project, constant and dynamic growth, the attraction of new players and investors – all this is Storm International.
Where did it all begin?
Holding President Michael Boettcher founded Storm International in Moscow in 1992. Despite the strong competition in the gambling sector that reigned in those years, the brand took a top position. It not only survived, but also quickly established itself in the Russian gambling market. Darren Keane, Shangri La СEO, also started working with the company in its early years.
Local investors took part in the development of the company with great pleasure. Popularity grew exponentially. No one then could have imagined that in 17 years the legislation regarding the gambling business would change dramatically. At the end of June 2009, the Shangri La gambling house opened its doors to the Moscow beau monde for the last time. The closure of business in Russia did not affect the company’s desire for a brighter future. Now all the efforts of the brand team were aimed at expanding the business in other cities and countries.
If you ask, which casino has been the best in Belarus for many years? This is the gambling house Storm International – Shangri La Minsk. The casino harmoniously complements the architecture of the central part of Minsk. And in the institution itself, there is everything for a luxurious gambling holiday.
Probably the most long-suffering gaming complexes of the brand are located in Ukraine. Bright opening, positive growth dynamics, then war and forced closure of complexes for several months. And only at the end of 2022, through the joint efforts of the company’s team, the luxurious Shangri-La casino in Kyiv was restarted. Spacious and comfortable gaming halls, friendly staff, and a variety of gambling entertainment – all this made it possible to return old customers and find new ones.
The brand also has a unit in Armenia. The respectable gambling house Shangri La Yerevan has long won the trust and popularity of local gambling enthusiasts. There are legends about the unique interior of the Armenian complex. The variety of games here is also impressive. Players can try their luck at roulette, Texas Hold’em, or the many slot machines.
Luxurious rest is also available for Shangri La Tbilisi casino visitors. High level of service, charming atmosphere and big winnings. All this constantly attracts players to one of the most famous gaming establishments in Georgia. Among the popular games here are poker and American roulette and a huge selection of video slots.
Storm International’s business flourished in Latvia for many years. Everyone knew the Riga club SL Casino. Popular games, luxurious interior, and European level of service have made the institution recognizable among Latvian gambling fans. Unfortunately, the activity of the club was terminated. This happened because of the law restricting gambling in the country.
Storm Casino gaming halls in 10 German cities have deservedly gained their popularity among local players. An unsurpassably large selection of slots gives German fans of excitement an invaluable gaming experience.
Shangri La Live
Following current trends, Storm International has opened another project, now on the Internet. Site players can now enjoy visiting a luxurious casino right from their sofa. Popular gaming platform, said Darren Keane, Shangri La Live offers hundreds of entertainment options, impeccable cybersecurity, and 24/7 customer support.
The Storm International trademark has been known all over the world for many years. The success of the company is not accidental. The holding team has put a lot of effort into today’s uninterrupted operation of all units. In the future, the history of the brand will be even more exciting. To the delight of its customers, the company will continue to develop, update, expand, and maintain its leading position in the gambling market.
