Russian Betting Sites

Best Bookmakers in Russia

Russia is a large, multiethnic state that connects Eastern Europe and Northern Asia within its borders. The country occupies a massive area and has a population of almost 150 million.

Sports Betting here experienced rather slow growth right up until the beginning of the 21st century and was limited to placing bets only in Betting Shops.
But this all changed with the arrival of affordable internet access to the country.

Now Betting Sites in Russia are as popular as all over the world.
