Cambodia Gambling Halls

Written by Cyrus. No comments Posted in: Casino

There is an interesting background to the Cambodia gambling halls that lie just across the border from neighboring Thailand, where gambling den wagering is against the law. Eight casinos are anchored in a generally small location in the municipality of Poipet in Cambodia. This group of Cambodia gambling dens is in a perfect spot, a 3 to four hour trip from Bangkok and Macao, the 2 biggest gambling centers in Asia. Cambodia gambling halls do a thriving business with Thai workers and guests from Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore, with only very couple of Westerners. The amazing capital acquired from the casinos ranges from $7.5 million to over 12.5 million, and there are a couple of restrictions requirements for casino ownership. Ownership is presumed to be mainly Thai; still, financing sources are vague. The borders are officially open from 0900 to 17:00, and though visas are for all intents and purposes needed to pass, there are ways around this, as is real of most borders.

The first Cambodia casinos opened in Phnom Penh in 1994, but were forced to close in 1998, leaving only one gambling den in the capital, the Naga Resort. The Naga, a moored bateau gambling den, features one hundred and fifty slot machines and 60 tables. The Naga river boat is open 24 hours with 42 tables of mini-baccarat, four tables of chemin de fer, ten of roulette, two of Caribbean Stud Poker, and 1 each of Pai-Gow and Tai-Sai.

The first gambling hall in Poipet, the Holiday Palace, premiered in 1999 and the Golden Crown soon followed. There are 150 slot machines and 5 tables at the Golden Crown and one hundred and four slots and sixty eight table games at the Holiday Palace. The newer Holiday Palace Casino and Resort features three hundred slots and seventy gaming tables and the Princess Hotel and Casino, also in Poipet, has 166 slots and ninety six gaming tables, including 87 baccarat banque (the most beloved game), Fan Tan, and Pai Gow. In addition, there is the Casino Tropicana, with 135 slot machine games and 66 of the normal table games, as well as 1 table of Casino Stud Poker. An additional of the 8 casinos in Poipet, also in a motel, is the Princess Casino with one hundred and sixty six slot machines and ninety seven casino games. The Star Vegas Casino is is located in a multinational vacation and hotel complex that highlights many comforts aside from the gambling den, which provides 10,000 square feet of 130 slot machines and eighty eight gaming tables.
