There is an appealing story to the Cambodia casinos that reside just across the dividing line from nearby Thailand, in which gambling hall gaming is not allowed. Eight gambling halls are based in a generally tiny location in the city of Poipet in Cambodia. This collection of Cambodia casinos is in an excellent area, a three to 4 hour trip from Bangkok and Macao, the two biggest gambling locations in Asia. Cambodia gambling halls do a huge business with Thai workers and guests from Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore, with only very couple of Westerners. The phenomenal capital accrued from the gambling halls ranges from seven and a half million dollars to over 12.5 million, and there are a few restrictions requirements for gambling hall ownership. Ownership is assumed to be mostly Thai; however, investment sources are vague. The borders are formally open from 09:00 to 17:00, and although visas are apparently necessary to cross, there are methods around this, as is real of most border crossings.

The original Cambodia gambling dens premiered in Phnom Penh in the mid nineties, but were required to close in the late nineties, leaving just a single gambling den in the capital, the Naga Resort. The Naga, a docked boat gambling den, contains one hundred and fifty slots and sixty gaming tables. The Naga gambling hall never closes with forty two tables of mini-baccarat chemin de fer, 4 tables of twenty-one, ten of roulette, two of Caribbean Stud Poker, and one each of Pai-Gow and Tai-Sai.

The initial casino in Poipet, the Holiday Palace, premiered in 1999 and the Golden Crown before long followed. There are one hundred and fifty one armed bandits and 5 table games at the Golden Crown and one hundred and four slots and sixty eight gaming tables at the Holiday Palace. The latest Holiday Palace Casino and Resort features 300 slot machine games and 70 gaming tables and the Princess Hotel and Casino, also in Poipet, has one hundred and sixty six slot machine games and 96 gaming tables, including eighty seven baccarat banque (the most beloved game), Fan Tan, and Pai Gow. Also, there is the Casino Tropicana, with 135 slot machines and 66 of the common table games, as well as a single table of Casino Stud Poker. One more of the 8 casinos in Poipet, also a part of a hotel, is the Princess Casino with 166 slots and 97 table games. The Star Vegas Casino is is located in an international resort and hotel compound that contains many conveniences accompanying the gambling hall, which has 10,000 square feet of 130 slots and 88 table games.
