Cambodia Casinos

Thursday, 5. November 2015

There is a fascinating history to the Cambodia gambling halls that lie just across the dividing line from nearby Thailand, in which gambling hall wagering is not allowed. Eight gambling dens are situated in a relatively small space in the city of Poipet in Cambodia. This band of Cambodia gambling dens is in an excellent location, a three to 4 hour trip from Bangkok and Macao, the 2 most popular wagering centers in Asia. Cambodia gambling dens do a huge business with Thai workers and guests from Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore, with only very couple of Westerners. The amazing capital gained from the casinos ranges from 7.5 million dollars to over 12.5 million dollars, and there are a few restrictions constraints for gambling hall ownership. Ownership is required to be mainly Thai; however, financing sources are ambiguous. The borders are officially open from 0900 to 1700, and though visas are supposedly needed to pass, there are means around this, as is true of most border crossings.

The 1st Cambodia gambling halls opened in Phnom Penh in 1994, but were required to close in the late nineties, leaving just one gambling hall in the capital, the Naga Resort. The Naga, an anchored boat casino, contains 150 slot machine games and 60 gaming tables. The Naga casino never closes with 42 tables of mini-baccarat, four tables of twenty-one, ten of roulette, 2 of Caribbean Stud Poker, and a single table each of Pai-Gow and Tai-Sai.

The original gambling hall in Poipet, the Holiday Palace, premiered in the late nineties and the Golden Crown before long opened. A total of one hundred and fifty slot machine games and five table games at the Golden Crown and 104 slot machine games and sixty eight gaming tables at the Holiday Palace. The newer Holiday Palace Casino and Resort contains three hundred slot machines and 70 gaming tables and the Princess Hotel and Casino, also in Poipet, has 166 one armed bandits and 96 table games, including eighty seven baccarat chemin de fer (the most beloved game), Fan Tan, and Pai Gow. Also, there is the Casino Tropicana, with 135 slot machine games and 66 of the familiar tables, as well as one table of Casino Stud Poker. One more of the eight gambling halls in Poipet, again a part of a motel, is the Princess Casino with one hundred and sixty six slot machines and 97 table games. The Star Vegas Casino is part of a multinational resort and hotel building that contains numerous conveniences in addition to the gambling den, which provides 10,000 square feet of one hundred and thirty slot machines and eighty eight tables.
