    After having signed up as a new player a couple weeks ago I got this email from them today:

    Dear Schanky,

    As Shangri La Online casino is closed we would like to return the remaining money of $1 from your gaming account.

    Can you please tell any electronic payment system ID (WebMoney or Yandex) to transfer the funds?

    Thank you.

    Best regards,

    Elena Lazareva

    Shangri la Online Casino



    I do not think they have ever done anything good or bad, have they?

    Did a quick search and nothing so cant really help. However, it did throw up this very interesting thread from 2003 about a player who supposedly turned a $5 bonus (read why it was a bonus - should ring a bell!) into $200,000 - on slots too :eek: But ending up at a rogue casino!

    Quite a few of the regulars here got involved...Jet, Meister, Mary, Jyde, Sirius etc.

    Its a good read, but be warned, after 5 pages it ends abruptly with no hint of "what happened next". He PAB'ed, so perhaps the Meister can enlighten us???

    Enjoy!

    The player never submitted a PAB and this drifted to the wayside. He made his postings and never returned which I find rather suspect.

    But besides this, this casino was related to the Elka Systems/Oyster Gaming casinos which have direct connections with Russian spammers. It's all documented here:

    Shangri La Casino has had the COOLEST music that I have ever heard in any Online Casino! -Yes, I am serious about that! :)

    I really wish MG or others would implement a way you could choose your own mp3's as a soundtrack instead of alot of that other background music. :) Wouldn't be that hard...

    You are talking about different ShangriLas probably.
    Never heard about old Elka one. New one opened in 2005, had "honest" 3D games (as in your favorite shooter :)). They were connected with Shangri La casino, Moscow. They were OK IMHO, won about $100 there, but looks like they didn't manage to collect customer base and decided to close instead of loosing money. I'm speaking about playshangrila.ru (.com) which redirects to B&M casino site now.
