Cambodia Gambling Halls

There is a captivating background to the Cambodia gambling dens that reside just across the border from nearby Thailand, where gambling den gambling is not allowed. Eight gambling dens are anchored in a relatively small space in the city of Poipet in Cambodia. This collection of Cambodia gambling dens is in a prime location, a 3 to 4 hour drive from Bangkok and Macao, the two most popular wagering centers in Asia. Cambodia gambling dens do a thriving business with Thai workers and visitors from Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore, with only very few Westerners. The astonishing capital gained from the casinos ranges from 7.5 million dollars to more than 12.5 million dollars, and there are a couple of limitations requirements for casino ownership. Ownership is required to be mainly Thai; still, investment sources are cryptic. The borders are formally open from 9:00 a.m. to 1700, and although visas are apparently required to cross, there are means around this, as is real of most border crossings.

The first Cambodia gambling halls premiered in Phnom Penh in 1994, but were required to close in the late nineties, leaving only one gambling den in the capital, the Naga Resort. The Naga, a moored ship gambling hall, features one hundred and fifty slot machines and 60 table games. The Naga gambling hall never closes with forty two tables of mini-baccarat banque, 4 tables of chemin de fer, ten of roulette, two of Caribbean Stud Poker, and 1 each of Pai-Gow and Tai-Sai.

The initial gambling den in Poipet, the Holiday Palace, premiered in 1999 and the Golden Crown before long followed. There are 150 slot machines and five 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 machine games and 70 table games and the Princess Hotel and Casino, also in Poipet, has 166 one armed bandits and ninety six table games, including 87 baccarat chemin de fer (the most popular game), Fan Tan, and Pai Gow. Additionally, there is the Casino Tropicana, with 135 one armed bandits and 66 of the normal table games, as well as 1 table of Casino Stud Poker. An additional of the 8 gambling dens in Poipet, again a part of a motel, is the Princess Casino with one hundred and sixty six slot machines and ninety seven table games. The Star Vegas Casino is part of an international vacation and hotel complex that highlights many comforts on top of the casino, which offers ten thousand sq.ft. of 130 slots and eighty eight tables.
