There is a captivating background to the Cambodia casinos that lie just over the border from neighboring Thailand, in which gambling hall wagering is not legal. Eight casinos are situated in a generally small space in the metropolis of Poipet in Cambodia. This conclave of Cambodia casinos is in an excellent area, a three to 4 hour trip from Bangkok and Macao, the 2 largest gambling locations in Asia. Cambodia gambling dens do a thriving business with Thai workers and tourists from Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore, with just a couple of Westerners. The astonishing income gained from the casinos ranges from 7.5 million dollars to more than 12.5 million, and there are a number of restrictions requirements for gambling hall ownership. Ownership is presumed to be mostly Thai; still, investment sources are ambiguous. The borders are officially open from 09:00 to 17:00, and despite the fact visas are apparently needed to pass, there are ways around this, as is accurate of many borders.

The original Cambodia casinos opened 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, an anchored bateau gambling hall, highlights 150 one armed bandits and sixty gaming tables. The Naga gambling hall is open 24 hours with forty two tables of mini-punto banco, four tables of 21, 10 of roulette, 2 of Caribbean Stud Poker, and one each of Pai-Gow and Tai-Sai.

The 1st gambling den in Poipet, the Holiday Palace, opened in 1999 and the Golden Crown before long opened. There are one hundred and fifty one armed bandits and five tables at the Golden Crown and 104 slot machines and 68 gaming tables at the Holiday Palace. The newest Holiday Palace Casino and Resort contains three hundred slot machines and seventy table games and the Princess Hotel and Casino, also in Poipet, has one hundred and sixty six slots and 96 gaming tables, including 87 punto banco (the most dominant game), Fan Tan, and Pai Gow. In addition, there is the Casino Tropicana, with 135 slot machines and sixty six of the familiar tables, as well as a single table of Casino Stud Poker. Another one of the 8 gambling dens in Poipet, also in a motel, is the Princess Casino with one hundred and sixty six slots and ninety seven games. The Star Vegas Casino is is located in a multinational vacation and hotel building that features many amenities on top of the casino, which offers ten thousand square feet of 130 slots and 88 table games.
