• Cambodia Casinos

    There is an interesting background to the Cambodia casinos that lie just across the border from next door Thailand, in which casino gaming is not legal. Eight gambling halls are established in a generally small area in the city of Poipet in Cambodia. This collection of Cambodia casinos is in a perfect spot, a 3 to 4 hour trip from Bangkok and Macao, the 2 most popular wagering centers in Asia. Cambodia casinos do a thriving business with Thai laborers and guests from Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore, with just a couple of Westerners. The astonishing capital gained from the casinos ranges from seven and a half million dollars to more than 12.5 million, and there are a few controls constraints for gambling hall ownership. Ownership is required to be mostly Thai; although, investment sources are vague. The borders are ceremoniously open from 0900 to 5:00 p.m., and even though visas are allegedly required to pass, there are methods around this, as is true of most borders.

    The 1st Cambodia casinos opened in Phnom Penh in the mid nineties, but were forced to close in the late nineties, leaving just one gambling hall in the capital, the Naga Resort. The Naga, a docked barge gambling den, contains 150 one armed bandits and 60 gaming tables. The Naga gambling hall is open all day and night with forty two tables of mini-punto banco, four tables of blackjack, 10 of roulette, 2 of Caribbean Stud Poker, and 1 each of Pai-Gow and Tai-Sai.

    The original casino in Poipet, the Holiday Palace, premiered in 1999 and the Golden Crown before long followed. There are 150 one armed bandits and five table games at the Golden Crown and 104 one armed bandits and 68 table games at the Holiday Palace. The newest Holiday Palace Casino and Resort contains three hundred slots and seventy gaming tables and the Princess Hotel and Casino, also in Poipet, has one hundred and sixty six slot machine games and 96 table games, including eighty seven punto banco (the most dominant game), Fan Tan, and Pai Gow. Additionally, there is the Casino Tropicana, with 135 slot machine games and sixty six of the normal table games, as well as a single table of Casino Stud Poker. Another one of the eight gambling halls in Poipet, again a part of a motel, is the Princess Casino with 166 slots and ninety seven casino games. The Star Vegas Casino is part of a multinational resort and hotel compound that contains numerous luxuries in addition to the gambling den, which has ten thousand sq.ft. of 130 slot machines and eighty eight gaming tables.
