What is junket tour?
Junket tour is a tourist trip with a cultural and entertainment program, which necessarily includes a visit to gambling establishments.

In this case, part of the costs or all expenses during the trip (flight, transfer, hotel accommodation, meals and so on) takes over the gambling establishment or travel company that provides junket tour.

History of junket tourism
Where, if not in the city of casinos — in Las Vegas, could be born junket tourism?

Las Vegas is the birthplace of Junket tourism
Cunning casino owners came up with and decided to try out a new scheme to attract customers: wealthy players were paid for flights, meals and hotel accommodation in exchange for hours spent in the casino. The invented scheme attracted not only casino owners, but also their customers. Over time, a visit to the casino on such terms became known as casino tours or junket tours (from the word “junket” (junket)-a pleasure trip at the state expense).

Features junket tours
Junket tour can be organized by the casino itself or a specialized travel Agency. The client is provided with free travel services, but the client must fulfill a number of conditions. All conditions are stipulated in a special contract. As a rule, the client has to play in the casino for a certain period of time for a certain amount of money, while minimum and maximum bets are stipulated.

When signing the contract, the client makes a Deposit, which is the guarantor of the conditions. The list of free services and entertainment depends on the amount of the Deposit. Junket tours can be provided with the following free entertainment: excursions, restaurants, boat trips and much more. The game in the casino is played with the money from the Deposit. If the player spends the Deposit funds in the casino before the agreed time frame, then the obligations of the contract are removed from him. However, if the player ceases to fulfill the terms of the contract (will spend less time in the casino or make bets less prescribed in the contract), the organizer has the right to compensate for their expenses for the casino tour from the client’s Deposit.

Junket tourism in Russia
Now junket tourism is developing rapidly around the world. The main target audience of casino tours — gambling citizens of those countries where gambling is banned or restricted. In Russia, junket tours have gained great popularity after the introduction of the law “on state regulation of the organization and conduct of gambling.” Specialized travel agencies in Russia often offer Russian gambling travelers casino tours to the official gambling zones of Russia, Belarus or other former Soviet republics and visa-free countries such as Bulgaria or Cyprus.

To sum up: junket tour is an opportunity to go on a journey and try your luck in the casino. And if luck is on your side, the trip will be not just free, but will enrich you not only spiritually but also materially.
