Cambodia Gambling Halls

March 9th, 2022 at 0:25

There is a fascinating history to the Cambodia casinos that lie just over the border from nearby Thailand, in which casino gambling is against the law. Eight gambling halls are established in a relatively tiny space in the metropolis of Poipet in Cambodia. This collection of Cambodia casinos is in a perfect destination, a three to 4 hour drive from Bangkok and Macao, the 2 biggest wagering locations in Asia. Cambodia gambling halls do a huge business with Thai workers and tourists from Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore, with just a couple of Westerners. The phenomenal capital gained from the gambling halls ranges from 7.5 million dollars to over 12.5 million dollars, and there are a couple of restrictions requirements for gambling hall ownership. Ownership is presumed to be largely Thai; although, funding sources are vague. The borders are ceremoniously open from 0900 to 1700, and despite the fact visas are for all intents and purposes required to pass, there are ways around this, as is accurate of most border crossings.

The first Cambodia gambling halls opened in Phnom Penh in the mid nineties, but were required to close in the late nineties, leaving only 1 gambling hall in the capital, the Naga Resort. The Naga, a stationary barge gambling den, features 150 slot machines and 60 table games. The Naga river boat is open all day and night with forty two tables of mini-baccarat chemin de fer, four tables of vingt-et-un, 10 of roulette, two of Caribbean Stud Poker, and 1 each of Pai-Gow and Tai-Sai.

The initial gambling hall in Poipet, the Holiday Palace, opened in 1999 and the Golden Crown soon opened. A total of one hundred and fifty slots and 5 table games at the Golden Crown and 104 slots and sixty eight tables at the Holiday Palace. The newer Holiday Palace Casino and Resort contains 300 slot machines and 70 gaming tables and the Princess Hotel and Casino, also in Poipet, has one hundred and sixty six one armed bandits and 96 gaming tables, including eighty seven baccarat chemin de fer (the most popular game), Fan Tan, and Pai Gow. Also, there is the Casino Tropicana, with one hundred and thirty five one armed bandits and 66 of the normal gaming tables, as well as one table of Casino Stud Poker. One more of the 8 gambling dens in Poipet, also a part of a motel, is the Princess Casino with one hundred and sixty six slot machine games and 97 casino games. The Star Vegas Casino is part of an international resort and hotel compound that contains numerous conveniences in addition to the casino, which houses ten thousand sq.ft. of one hundred and thirty one armed bandits and 88 table games.
