Cambodia Casinos

There is an interesting background to the Cambodia gambling dens that sit just across the dividing line from next door Thailand, where casino betting is prohibited. Eight gambling dens are based in a relatively small location in the city of Poipet in Cambodia. This conclave of Cambodia gambling dens is in an excellent spot, a 3 to four hour trip from Bangkok and Macao, the two most popular gaming locations in Asia. Cambodia casinos do a thriving business with Thai blue-collar workers and visitors from Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore, with just a few Westerners. The astonishing income gained from the gambling halls ranges from seven and a half million dollars to more than twelve and a half million dollars, and there are a couple of controls requirements for casino ownership. Ownership is assumed to be largely Thai; however, financial sources are vague. The borders are ceremoniously open from 9:00 a.m. to 17:00, and despite the fact visas are for all intents and purposes required to cross, there are methods around this, as is true of most borders.

The initial Cambodia gambling dens premiered in Phnom Penh in 1994, but were required to close in the late nineties, leaving only 1 gambling hall in the capital, the Naga Resort. The Naga, a moored barge casino, features one hundred and fifty slot machines and sixty table games. The Naga river boat is open 24 hours with 42 tables of mini-punto banco, 4 tables of blackjack, 10 of roulette, two of Caribbean Stud Poker, and 1 each of Pai-Gow and Tai-Sai.

The original gambling den in Poipet, the Holiday Palace, premiered in the late nineties and the Golden Crown before long opened. A total of 150 slot machines and 5 tables at the Golden Crown and 104 slots and sixty eight tables at the Holiday Palace. The newer Holiday Palace Casino and Resort features three hundred one armed bandits and seventy tables and the Princess Hotel and Casino, also in Poipet, has 166 slot machine games and ninety six table games, including 87 baccarat (the most beloved game), Fan Tan, and Pai Gow. Also, there is the Casino Tropicana, with 135 slots and 66 of the common gaming tables, as well as 1 table of Casino Stud Poker. An additional of the eight gambling dens in Poipet, also in a hotel, is the Princess Casino with one hundred and sixty six slots and 97 games. The Star Vegas Casino is part of an international vacation and hotel building that features numerous conveniences in addition to the casino, which contains ten thousand square feet of one hundred and thirty slot machines and 88 tables.
