Cambodia Casinos

There is an appealing history to the Cambodia gambling dens that reside just across the dividing line from next door Thailand, in which gambling hall gaming is banned. Eight casinos are based in a relatively small space in the municipality of Poipet in Cambodia. This collection of Cambodia gambling dens is in a prime destination, a 3 to 4 hour drive from Bangkok and Macao, the two biggest gaming centers in Asia. Cambodia gambling dens do a thriving business with Thai laborers and guests from Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore, with only very few Westerners. The astonishing capital gained from the gambling dens ranges from $7.5 million to over 12.5 million, and there are a number of controls constraints for casino ownership. Ownership is assumed to be largely Thai; although, financial sources are ambiguous. The borders are formally open from 09:00 to 1700, and even though visas are supposedly needed to pass, there are methods and means around this, as is accurate of many borders.

The Naga casino is open all day and night with forty two tables of mini-punto banco, 4 tables of blackjack, 10 of roulette, two of Caribbean Stud Poker, and 1 each of Pai-Gow and Tai-Sai.
