Cambodia Casinos

There is an appealing history to the Cambodia casinos that lie just over the dividing line from next door Thailand, where casino wagering is illegal. Eight casinos are situated in a generally tiny area in the metropolis of Poipet in Cambodia. This group of Cambodia casinos is in a perfect area, a 3 to four hour trip from Bangkok and Macao, the 2 largest betting locations in Asia. Cambodia casinos do a thriving business with Thai workers and travelers from Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore, with only very few Westerners. The amazing income gained from the gambling dens ranges from 7.5 million dollars to over 12.5 million, and there are a number of limitations constraints for casino ownership. Ownership is presumed to be mostly Thai; still, financing sources are vague. The borders are officially open from 09:00 to 5:00 p.m., and despite the fact visas are supposedly required to cross, there are means around this, as is real of many borders.
