Special task police forces in Russia’s Far East raided two illegal casinos, which were located in downtown of Vladivostok, the local Interior Ministry’s department said in a statement on Monday.

VLADIVOSTOK, October 14 (RIA Novosti) - Special task police forces in Russia’s Far East raided two illegal casinos, which were located in downtown of Vladivostok, the local Interior Ministry’s department said in a statement on Monday.

Both casinos were open to trusted and loyal customers with a single client spending there on the average over 500,000 rubles (over $15,400) per one visit, the statement said.

“There were about 20 clients in both casinos, when special task policemen raided the establishments,” the statement said adding that casinos were equipped with tables for roulette and poker as well as with digital displays and slot machines.

Since 2009, casinos and other gaming establishments in Russia have only been allowed to operate legally in four remote designated areas, in the Baltic exclave of Kaliningrad, south Siberia's Altai Territory, Primorye in the Far East, and in southern Russia near the Sea of Azov.
