Cambodia Gambling Dens

There is a captivating background to the Cambodia casinos that reside just over the dividing line from neighboring Thailand, in which gambling hall gaming is banned. Eight gambling halls are based in a relatively small location in the municipality of Poipet in Cambodia. This band of Cambodia gambling halls is in a prime spot, a three to four hour travel from Bangkok and Macao, the two most popular gaming centers in Asia. Cambodia gambling dens do a thriving business with Thai laborers and travelers from Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore, with only very few Westerners. The phenomenal capital acquired from the gambling halls ranges from seven and a half million dollars to over 12.5 million, and there are a couple of controls requirements for casino ownership. Ownership is required to be mostly Thai; however, financial sources are ambiguous. The borders are officially open from 0900 to 1700, and even though visas are supposedly needed to cross, there are ways around this, as is accurate of many border crossings.

The initial Cambodia gambling halls opened in Phnom Penh in the mid nineties, but were forced to close in the late nineties, leaving just 1 gambling hall in the capital, the Naga Resort. The Naga, an anchored barge casino, highlights one hundred and fifty slot machine games and sixty tables. The Naga gambling hall is open all day and night with 42 tables of mini-baccarat chemin de fer, four tables of 21, 10 of roulette, two of Caribbean Stud Poker, and 1 each of Pai-Gow and Tai-Sai.

A total of 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.
