• Cambodia Gambling Halls

    There is an interesting story to the Cambodia gambling dens that reside just over the dividing line from next door Thailand, where gambling hall gambling is not permitted. Eight casinos are anchored in a relatively small location in the metropolis of Poipet in Cambodia. This band of Cambodia gambling halls is in a perfect spot, a three to four hour drive from Bangkok and Macao, the 2 most popular gaming locations in Asia. Cambodia gambling halls do a huge business with Thai workers and visitors from Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore, with just a few Westerners. The phenomenal capital acquired from the casinos ranges from seven and a half million dollars to over twelve and a half million dollars, and there are a number of controls constraints for gambling hall ownership. Ownership is assumed to be mainly Thai; still, financing sources are ambiguous. The borders are ceremoniously open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and though visas are apparently needed to cross, there are methods around this, as is true of most border crossings.

    The first Cambodia casinos opened in Phnom Penh in the mid nineties, but were forced to close in the late nineties, leaving only a single gambling den in the capital, the Naga Resort. The Naga, a stationary barge gambling hall, highlights one hundred and fifty one armed bandits and 60 tables. The Naga gambling hall is open all day and night with forty two tables of mini-punto banco, four tables of twenty-one, 10 of roulette, two of Caribbean Stud Poker, and 1 each of Pai-Gow and Tai-Sai.

    The first casino in Poipet, the Holiday Palace, premiered in the late nineties and the Golden Crown before long followed. A total of 150 slot machine games and 5 table games at the Golden Crown and one hundred and four one armed bandits and 68 tables at the Holiday Palace. The latest Holiday Palace Casino and Resort highlights 300 slot machines and 70 tables and the Princess Hotel and Casino, also in Poipet, has one hundred and sixty six slot machines and 96 table games, including 87 baccarat (the most dominant game), Fan Tan, and Pai Gow. Also, there is the Casino Tropicana, with 135 slots and 66 of the familiar gaming tables, as well as a single table of Casino Stud Poker. One more of the eight gambling dens in Poipet, again in a motel, is the Princess Casino with 166 one armed bandits and 97 games. The Star Vegas Casino is part of an all-inclusive vacation and hotel compound that highlights many amenities on top of the gambling den, which houses 10,000 sq.ft. of one hundred and thirty slot machine games and 88 tables.
