• Cambodia Gambling Dens

    There is a fascinating background to the Cambodia gambling halls that lie just over the dividing line from nearby Thailand, where casino gambling is against the law. Eight gambling halls are situated in a relatively tiny space in the municipality of Poipet in Cambodia. This conclave of Cambodia gambling dens is in a perfect spot, a three to 4 hour drive from Bangkok and Macao, the 2 biggest wagering locations in Asia. Cambodia gambling dens do a thriving business with Thai blue-collar workers and travelers from Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore, with just a few Westerners. The amazing income accrued from the gambling halls ranges from 7.5 million dollars to over twelve and a half million dollars, and there are a number of restrictions constraints for gambling den ownership. Ownership is required to be largely Thai; although, investment sources are vague. The borders are formally open from 09:00 to 1700, and although visas are supposedly required to cross, there are methods around this, as is accurate of many borders.

    The first Cambodia casinos premiered in Phnom Penh in the mid nineties, but were required to close in the late nineties, leaving only a single casino in the capital, the Naga Resort. The Naga, a moored ship casino, contains one hundred and fifty slots and sixty tables. The Naga casino is open all hours with 42 tables of mini-baccarat, 4 tables of 21, ten of roulette, two of Caribbean Stud Poker, and 1 each of Pai-Gow and Tai-Sai.

    The 1st gambling hall in Poipet, the Holiday Palace, premiered in 1999 and the Golden Crown before long followed. A total of 150 slot machine games and five table games at the Golden Crown and one hundred and four slots and 68 table games at the Holiday Palace. The newer Holiday Palace Casino and Resort features 300 slot machine games and seventy table games and the Princess Hotel and Casino, also in Poipet, has 166 slot machines and 96 gaming tables, including 87 baccarat chemin de fer (the most beloved game), Fan Tan, and Pai Gow. Also, there is the Casino Tropicana, with one hundred and thirty five slot machine games and 66 of the common table games, as well as 1 table of Casino Stud Poker. An additional of the eight casinos in Poipet, again in a motel, is the Princess Casino with 166 slot machine games and 97 table games. The Star Vegas Casino is part of a comprehensive vacation and hotel building that highlights many conveniences aside from the gambling hall, which has ten thousand square feet of 130 slot machine games and eighty eight tables.
