Each of them, on average, spent 9,798 rubles – this is the cost of the game, and the services of bars and restaurants. According to the reports, in 2020, the Shambhala casino transferred more than 95 million rubles to the budget of the Primorsky Territory, of which 18 is a tax on the gambling business. This is despite the fact that during the pandemic, the Legislative Assembly of the region reduced the tax burden on the gambling business. The tax amounted to 50,000 rubles from each gambling table and 3,000 rubles from a slot machine. Previously, they were 125,000 and 15,000, respectively.
