A wave of Russian tourists is expected at the casinos and other gambling sites at the Bulgarian Seaside after a ban on gambling in Russia comes into force July 1st, onlinecasinoadvisory.com reports Monday.

Over 550 gambling halls in Russia, 30 of whom are casinos, will close doors in ten days. This is expected to break out a wave of hardcore gamblers travelling to nearby countries where there’s no ban.
