There is an appealing background to the Cambodia gambling establishments that lie just over the border from bordering Thailand, where gambling den wagering is illegal. 8 gambling establishments are positioned in a relatively small area in the city of Poipet in Cambodia. This area of Cambodia gambling dens is in a perfect area, a 3 to 4 drive from Bangkok and Macao, the two largest betting centers in Asia. Cambodia bettings houses do a successful business with Thai workers and guests from Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore, with only very couple of Westerners. The extraordinary income acquired from the gambling establishments ranges from 7 dollars.five million to over 12 million, and there are few restrictions or registration prerequisites for gambling establishment ownership. Ownership is presumed to be mostly Thai; however, investment sources are vague. The borders are formally open from nine a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and though visas are apparently required to cross, there are ways around this, as is true of most border crossings.

The very first Cambodia bettings houses opened in Phnom Penh in 1994, except were compelled to close in ninety-eight, leaving only one gambling establishment in the capital, the Naga Resort. The Naga, a stationary boat betting house, attributes one hundred and fifty slot machines and 60 table games. The Naga gambling den is open round the clock with forty-two tables of mini-baccarat, four tables of black jack, ten of roulette, 2 of Caribbean Stud Poker, and one each of Pai gow and Tai-Sai.

The very first casino in Poipet, the Holiday Palace, opened in 1999 and the Golden Crown soon followed. You will find one hundred and fifty slots and 5 table games at the Golden Crown and one hundred and four slots and sixty-eight table games at the Holiday Palace. The newer Holiday Palace Casino and Resort characteristics three hundred slot machines and 70 table games and the Princess Hotel and Gambling establishment, also in Poipet, has one hundred and sixty-six slot machines and ninety-six gaming tables, including eighty seven baccarat banque (the most well-known game), Fan Tan, and Pai-gow. Moreover, there may be the Betting house Tropicana, with a hundred and thirty five slots and 66 of the familiar table games, as well as one table of Gambling den Stud Poker. One more one of the eight casinos in Poipet, also in a hotel, will be the Princess Betting house with 166 slot machine games and ninety-seven games. The Star Vegas Betting house is part of an international resort and hotel complex that functions a number of amenities also to the casino, which has 10,000 square feet of 130 slot machines and eighty-eight table games.

Across the Cambodian border at Asmech/Surin is one betting house, the Gambling den O Samet, with 100 slots and 50 tables of baccarat chemin de fer. In addition, the Koh Kong Gambling establishment, in the province of Trat, is open daily from 9:00 a.m. to ten p.m., with one hundred slots and 4 table games. A smaller gambling den, Le Macau Gambling establishment and Hotel, opened not too long ago at Bavet on the Vietnamese border.
