The Siberian Coin Zone was established by a Russian government resolution of 9 February 2008. It is located in the Altai Territory, 280 km from Barnaul, on an area of more than 2,300 hectares near the village of Aya. The location was not chosen by chance, because in the east the gaming zone borders the tourist complex “Turquoise Katun” and this district reduces the cost of infrastructure development and promises an influx of tourists to the casino.
Initially, there were three companies among the residents: Alti, Royal Time Group and Energy M.
He abandoned the idea of investing in 2015 and a subsidiary of Royal Time Group (RTG-Siberia) did not do any work for a long time, but did not leave the population. In 2019, the decision of the arbitral tribunal terminated the contract with the company and its owners were ordered to pay a fine of 55 million rubles to the regional budget.
Tourist complex “Turquoise Katun”
Since the establishment of the gambling zone in Siberia, the only company that has actually developed a special territory was LLC “Alti”. Its owner, Vladimir Kutyev, manages the city-building company of the city of Gorno-Altaisk, which is closest to IRZ. According to various sources, about 2 billion rubles have been invested in the development of the site. Now in Altai there is one entertainment complex with a casino, hotel and restaurant.

Altai Palace Casino was opened in 2014, later opened a four-star hotel with 46 rooms. There are 150 slot machines and 32 gaming tables in the games rooms; there has been a poker club here since 2016. In addition to the classic gambling, the institution offers a pool room with 4 tables for Russian billiards, one for American billiards and a table for billiards. There is a restaurant and a SPA salon on the entertainment complex. Altai Palace Casino The main problem with the Sibirskaya Moneta casino was its remoteness from civilization and, as a result, its lack of infrastructure.
The good road was not built until 2019. It came to the point that the operator organized a transfer by helicopter to comfortably transport players to the Altai Palace.
Now the administration is trying to attract customers, among other things through excursions, offers of horseback riding and helicopters, jeep tours focused on family vacations. Nearby are Tavdinsky Caves, Lake Teletskoye and the most famous Altai mountain Belukha. Picturesque places in the “Turquoise Katun” nature zone attract a lot of people every year, but these tourists are often not interested in visiting the casino. In recent years, therefore, the operator has begun to actively develop the so-called tourism events: music and sports festivals and other mass events take place in the entertainment complex.
Gamblers from neighboring big cities and tourists from all over Russia were expected to visit the entertainment complex, and foreign citizens took part in visiting the casinos. The official website of the Siberian Coin Zone states that it was planned to build by 2019:
- a casino with thousands of slot machines and hundreds of gaming tables;
- hotels with 3 rooms 000 seats;
- ski resort;
- restaurants serving cuisine of different nations;
- year-round aquapark, dance stages, boutique chain, theaters.
At the end of 2019, however, the plans were not implemented and the statements of the owner of the only casino about the future of the Sibirskaya coin are not optimistic. Now Vladimir Kutiev has taken a standstill position and is betting on the further development of the special zone by attracting new investors.
The trader takes a sober look at things and talks about bad air traffic, unstable economic situation and low incomes. All this, in his opinion, deters potential residents.
According to some reports, the special territory was still able to attract an investor who is ready to invest several billion rubles in a large project. It is noteworthy that the shareholder of the new company is the co-founder of the existing investor Alti. LLC “Zolotaya Swallow 8” has entered into an agreement and plans to begin construction of a gambling and entertainment center in 2020 and fully complete the work by 2024. There will be at least one other gambling establishment, hotel and other facilities to attract tourists.
