Cambodia Betting Halls

[ English ]

There’s an interesting history to the Cambodia bettings houses that lie just over the border from neighboring Thailand, where casino gambling is illegal. 8 bettings houses are positioned in the fairly small area in the city of Poipet in Cambodia. This area of Cambodia casinos is in a perfect location, a 3 to 4 drive from Bangkok and Macao, the two biggest wagering centres in Asia. Cambodia casinos do a successful business with Thai workers and visitors from Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore, with only quite couple of Westerners. The extraordinary income gained from the gambling dens ranges from seven dollars.five million to over 12 million, and there are few restrictions or registration requirements for gambling establishment ownership. Ownership is assumed to be largely Thai; however, investment sources are vague. The borders are officially open from 9:00 a.m. to five p.m., and even though visas are supposedly required to cross, you’ll find methods to circumspect this, as is true of many border crossings.

The initial Cambodia casinos opened in Phnom Penh in ‘94, but were pressured to close in 98, leaving only one gambling establishment in the capital, the Naga Resort. The Naga, a fixed boat betting house, attributes a hundred and fifty slot machine games and sixty table games. The Naga gambling establishment is open twenty four hours with 42 tables of mini-baccarat, four tables of black-jack, 10 of roulette, two of Caribbean Stud Poker, and 1 each of Pai-gow-poker and Tai-Sai.

The 1st gambling den in Poipet, the Holiday Palace, opened in 1999 and the Golden Crown soon followed. You can find 150 slot machines and 5 table games at the Golden Crown and one hundred and four slots and sixty-eight table games at the Holiday Palace. The newer Holiday Palace Gambling establishment and Resort attributes three hundred slot machine games and 70 table games and the Princess Hotel and Gambling den, also in Poipet, has 166 slot machine games and ninety-six gaming tables, including 87 baccarat (the most popular game), Fan Tan, and Pai-gow. Also, there is the Gambling den Tropicana, with one hundred and thirty five slot machines and sixty-six of the familiar table games, as well as one table of Gambling establishment Stud Poker. An additional one of the eight casinos in Poipet, also in the hotel, will be the Princess Gambling den with 166 slot machines and 97 games. The Star Vegas Gambling establishment is part of an international resort and hotel complex that characteristics a number of amenities in addition to the betting house, which has ten thousand sqft of 130 slots and eighty-eight table games.

Across the Cambodian border at Asmech/Surin is one gambling establishment, the Betting house O Samet, with 100 slots and 50 tables of baccarat. Moreover, the Koh Kong Gambling establishment, in the province of Trat, is open everyday from 9:00 a.m. to ten p.m., with 100 slot machines and 4 table games. A smaller betting house, Le Macau Casino and Hotel, opened recently at Bavet on the Vietnamese border.
