Police Close Down Moscow University Casino

Moscow police have shut down an illegal casino operating on the premises of a state university, the Interior Ministry reported on Monday. The police confiscated four card tables, three roulette tables, 70 slot machines using counterfeit Novomatik software, and other gambling paraphernalia from the site. The casino, located at Moscow State University of Instrument Engineering and Informatics, was seeing a daily income of 3 to 5 million rubles ($96,700-$161,000), the police said. Since July 2009, gambling in Russia has only been allowed in four specially allotted zones, driving much of the business underground into a thriving black market.
