Cambodia Gambling Dens

There is a fascinating history to the Cambodia gambling halls that sit just over the dividing line from neighboring Thailand, where gambling hall gaming is not permitted. Eight gambling halls are established in a generally small area in the metropolis of Poipet in Cambodia. This collection of Cambodia gambling halls is in a prime destination, a 3 to four hour drive from Bangkok and Macao, the 2 biggest betting locations in Asia. Cambodia gambling dens do a thriving business with Thai workers and travelers from Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore, with only very couple of Westerners. The phenomenal income gained from the gambling dens ranges from 7.5 million dollars to over twelve and a half million dollars, and there are a few limitations constraints for gambling den ownership. Ownership is assumed to be largely Thai; although, funding sources are cryptic. The borders are ceremoniously open from 0900 to 5:00 p.m., and despite the fact visas are for all intents and purposes required to pass, there are ways around this, as is correct of many border crossings.

The first Cambodia gambling halls premiered in Phnom Penh in the mid nineties, but were required to close in the late nineties, leaving only one gambling hall in the capital, the Naga Resort. The Naga, a docked bateau casino, highlights 150 slots and sixty table games. The Naga casino is open 24 hours with forty two tables of mini-baccarat chemin de fer, four tables of vingt-et-un, ten of roulette, 2 of Caribbean Stud Poker, and one each of Pai-Gow and Tai-Sai.

The original casino in Poipet, the Holiday Palace, opened in the late nineties and the Golden Crown before long opened. A total of 150 slot machine games and 5 tables at the Golden Crown and one hundred and four slot machines and sixty eight table games at the Holiday Palace. The newer Holiday Palace Casino and Resort features three hundred slot machines and 70 tables and the Princess Hotel and Casino, also in Poipet, has one hundred and sixty six slot machine games and 96 gaming tables, including eighty seven baccarat (the most popular game), Fan Tan, and Pai Gow. Additionally, there is the Casino Tropicana, with one hundred and thirty five slots and sixty six of the common tables, as well as 1 table of Casino Stud Poker. Another one of the eight casinos in Poipet, also in a hotel, 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 resort and hotel building that features a number of comforts accompanying the casino, which provides 10,000 sq.ft. of 130 slots and eighty eight tables.
