There is an interesting history to the Cambodia gambling halls that reside just across the dividing line from nearby Thailand, in which casino wagering is not allowed. Eight gambling halls are situated in a relatively tiny space in the city of Poipet in Cambodia. This collection of Cambodia casinos is in a perfect location, a three to 4 hour trip from Bangkok and Macao, the two largest gaming centers in Asia. Cambodia gambling dens do a thriving business with Thai workers and visitors from Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore, with only very couple of Westerners. The astonishing income gained from the casinos ranges from seven and a half million dollars to over twelve and a half million dollars, and there are a few limitations constraints for casino ownership. Ownership is required to be largely Thai; although, financial sources are ambiguous. The borders are officially open from 09:00 to 1700, and although visas are supposedly necessary to cross, there are methods around this, as is correct of many border crossings.

The 1st Cambodia gambling dens opened in Phnom Penh in the mid nineties, but were required to close in the late nineties, leaving just one gambling hall in the capital, the Naga Resort. The Naga, a stationary boat casino, highlights 150 slot machines and 60 gaming tables. The Naga gambling den is open all hours with forty two tables of mini-baccarat banque, 4 tables of blackjack, ten of roulette, two of Caribbean Stud Poker, and 1 each of Pai-Gow and Tai-Sai.

The initial gambling den in Poipet, the Holiday Palace, opened in the late nineties and the Golden Crown before long opened. There are one hundred and fifty slot machines and five table games at the Golden Crown and 104 one armed bandits and sixty eight table games at the Holiday Palace. The latest Holiday Palace Casino and Resort features 300 slots and 70 gaming tables and the Princess Hotel and Casino, also in Poipet, has 166 slot machine games and 96 gaming tables, including 87 baccarat banque (the most beloved game), Fan Tan, and Pai Gow. Also, there is the Casino Tropicana, with one hundred and thirty five slots and sixty six of the common tables, as well as 1 table of Casino Stud Poker. Another one of the 8 gambling dens in Poipet, also a part of a hotel, is the Princess Casino with one hundred and sixty six slot machines and ninety seven casino games. The Star Vegas Casino is is located in an international vacation and hotel compound that contains many luxuries on top of the gambling hall, which provides ten thousand square feet of one hundred and thirty slot machines and 88 table games.
