• Cambodia Casinos

    There is an interesting background to the Cambodia casinos that reside just across the dividing line from neighboring Thailand, where gambling den betting is not permitted. Eight gambling dens are established in a relatively tiny space in the city of Poipet in Cambodia. This collection of Cambodia gambling dens is in a prime area, a 3 to four hour travel from Bangkok and Macao, the two biggest gambling centers in Asia. Cambodia casinos do a huge business with Thai laborers and tourists from Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore, with only very couple of Westerners. The amazing capital accrued from the casinos ranges from 7.5 million dollars to more than twelve and a half million dollars, and there are a number of controls constraints for gambling den ownership. Ownership is presumed to be mainly Thai; still, financing sources are cryptic. The borders are officially open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and even though visas are allegedly necessary to pass, there are ways around this, as is accurate of most border crossings.

    The 1st Cambodia casinos opened in Phnom Penh in the mid nineties, but were required to close in the late nineties, leaving only a single gambling hall in the capital, the Naga Resort. The Naga, an anchored barge gambling den, features one hundred and fifty slots and sixty gaming tables. The Naga casino never closes with forty two tables of mini-baccarat banque, four tables of chemin de fer, ten of roulette, 2 of Caribbean Stud Poker, and one each of Pai-Gow and Tai-Sai.

    The first gambling hall in Poipet, the Holiday Palace, opened in the late nineties and the Golden Crown before long followed. A total of 150 slots and five tables at the Golden Crown and 104 slot machines and 68 table games at the Holiday Palace. The latest Holiday Palace Casino and Resort features 300 one armed bandits and 70 gaming 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 chemin de fer (the most dominant game), Fan Tan, and Pai Gow. Additionally, there is the Casino Tropicana, with 135 one armed bandits and 66 of the familiar gaming tables, as well as one table of Casino Stud Poker. One more of the 8 gambling halls in Poipet, also in a motel, is the Princess Casino with one hundred and sixty six slot machines and ninety seven games. The Star Vegas Casino is part of a comprehensive resort and hotel complex that contains numerous amenities accompanying the gambling den, which houses ten thousand square feet of 130 slot machines and eighty eight table games.
