The "Azov-city" grows not only with the engineering infrastructure. In December, 2008 the building of the first gambling institution "Oracle" was begun. The company "Royal Time", one of winners of the auctions on the right of rent of the ground areas in "Azov-city", became the pioneer there.

By the present time in the gambling zone there is also such blessing of a civilisation as stable cellular communication.
