Cambodia Betting Houses

[ English ]

There is an interesting history to the Cambodia gambling dens that lie just across the national boundaries from bordering Thailand, where gambling establishment gambling is illegal. Eight gambling dens are located in a relatively tiny area in the city of Poipet in Cambodia. This area of Cambodia bettings houses is in the prime place, a 3 to 4 drive from Bangkok and Macao, the 2 biggest 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 extremely few Westerners. The incredible earnings gained from the casinos ranges from 7 dollars.5 million to over 12.5 million, and there are couple of constraints or registration requirements for gambling den ownership. Ownership is presumed to be largely Thai; however, investment sources are vague. The borders are officially open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and although visas are apparently necessary to cross, you can find methods around this, as is true of many border crossings.

The very first Cambodia casinos opened in Phnom Penh in ninety-four, except were compelled to close in 98, leaving only one gambling den in the capital, the Naga Resort. The Naga, a stationary boat gambling den, characteristics a hundred and fifty slot machines and 60 table games.
