Cambodia Gambling Halls

There is a fascinating history to the Cambodia gambling halls that reside just over the dividing line from nearby Thailand, in which casino wagering is not legal. Eight gambling dens are situated in a generally tiny area in the city of Poipet in Cambodia. This band of Cambodia gambling halls is in a prime location, a three to four hour drive from Bangkok and Macao, the 2 largest wagering locations in Asia. Cambodia gambling dens do a huge business with Thai workers and guests from Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore, with just a few Westerners. The amazing income acquired from the gambling halls ranges from 7.5 million dollars to over twelve and a half million dollars, and there are a number of limitations constraints for casino ownership. Ownership is presumed to be mostly Thai; however, financial sources are cryptic. The borders are officially open from 9:00 a.m. to 1700, and despite the fact visas are apparently needed to pass, there are means around this, as is true of many border crossings.

The 1st Cambodia gambling dens premiered in Phnom Penh in 1994, but were forced to close in 1998, leaving just 1 gambling den in the capital, the Naga Resort. The Naga, a moored bateau gambling hall, highlights one hundred and fifty slots and 60 tables. The Naga gambling hall never closes with forty two tables of mini-baccarat chemin de fer, four tables of blackjack, 10 of roulette, two of Caribbean Stud Poker, and one each of Pai-Gow and Tai-Sai.

The initial gambling den in Poipet, the Holiday Palace, premiered in the late nineties and the Golden Crown before long opened. There are one hundred and fifty slot machine games and 5 tables at the Golden Crown and one hundred and four one armed bandits and sixty eight gaming tables at the Holiday Palace. The newer Holiday Palace Casino and Resort highlights three hundred slot machine games and seventy tables and the Princess Hotel and Casino, also in Poipet, has one hundred and sixty six slot machines and 96 gaming tables, including eighty seven baccarat chemin de fer (the most dominant game), Fan Tan, and Pai Gow. In addition, there is the Casino Tropicana, with one hundred and thirty five one armed bandits and sixty six of the familiar gaming tables, as well as 1 table of Casino Stud Poker. One more of the 8 casinos in Poipet, again in a motel, is the Princess Casino with one hundred and sixty six slot machine games and 97 table games. The Star Vegas Casino is is located in an all-around resort and hotel compound that highlights many conveniences in addition to the casino, which contains ten thousand square feet of one hundred and thirty slot machines and eighty eight table games.
