• Cambodia Gambling Dens

    There is a fascinating history to the Cambodia gambling dens that lie just over the dividing line from nearby Thailand, where gambling den wagering is prohibited. Eight gambling dens are anchored in a generally tiny area in the metropolis of Poipet in Cambodia. This conclave of Cambodia casinos is in an excellent area, a 3 to 4 hour travel from Bangkok and Macao, the two largest betting centers in Asia. Cambodia gambling halls do a huge business with Thai blue-collar workers and visitors from Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore, with only very couple of Westerners. The astonishing income gained from the gambling dens ranges from $7.5 million to more than 12.5 million, and there are a few limitations requirements for gambling hall ownership. Ownership is presumed to be largely Thai; still, financing sources are vague. The borders are formally open from 9:00 a.m. to 17:00, and although visas are for all intents and purposes necessary to pass, there are methods and means around this, as is true of many borders.

    The original Cambodia gambling dens premiered in Phnom Penh in 1994, but were forced to close in 1998, leaving just one casino in the capital, the Naga Resort. The Naga, a docked boat gambling hall, highlights one hundred and fifty one armed bandits and 60 gaming tables. The Naga gambling hall never closes with 42 tables of mini-baccarat banque, 4 tables of chemin de fer, 10 of roulette, 2 of Caribbean Stud Poker, and one each of Pai-Gow and Tai-Sai.

    The initial gambling den in Poipet, the Holiday Palace, opened in 1999 and the Golden Crown quickly followed. There are 150 slot machine games and five tables at the Golden Crown and 104 slot machines and 68 gaming tables at the Holiday Palace. The newer Holiday Palace Casino and Resort contains 300 one armed bandits and seventy tables and the Princess Hotel and Casino, also in Poipet, has 166 slots and ninety six table games, including eighty seven baccarat chemin de fer (the most dominant game), Fan Tan, and Pai Gow. Also, there is the Casino Tropicana, with one hundred and thirty five one armed bandits and sixty six of the normal table games, as well as one table of Casino Stud Poker. Another one of the eight gambling halls in Poipet, again a part of a hotel, is the Princess Casino with 166 slot machines and ninety seven games. The Star Vegas Casino is is located in an all-inclusive vacation and hotel building that features many comforts accompanying the gambling den, which contains 10,000 square feet of one hundred and thirty slots and 88 tables.
