The new Sochi Casino & Resort, which debuted in January in the mountain resort of Gorky Gorod, Russia, was originally built as a media center for the 2014 Winter Olympics.
Today it's a dazzling resort in the Las Vegas tradition: a progressive feast of grand spaces, sweeping vistas, and a casino with 70 gaming tables, 560 slot machines and a poker club. It's all the sparkle and glitz of the Strip- on the shores of Black Sea. And it's already hosting headline events- the 2017 PokerStars Championship was held there in May.
