There is an interesting background to the Cambodia gambling dens that lie just over the dividing line from next door Thailand, in which gambling den betting is not permitted. Eight gambling halls are based in a generally small location in the metropolis of Poipet in Cambodia. This band of Cambodia casinos is in a prime area, a 3 to 4 hour drive from Bangkok and Macao, the 2 largest gambling centers in Asia. Cambodia gambling dens do a huge business with Thai laborers and guests from Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore, with just a couple of Westerners. The amazing capital gained from the casinos ranges from seven and a half million dollars to more than twelve and a half million dollars, and there are a number of controls constraints for gambling hall ownership. Ownership is presumed to be largely Thai; although, investment sources are cryptic. The borders are ceremoniously open from 09:00 to 1700, and although visas are apparently needed to cross, there are ways around this, as is correct of most border crossings.

The 1st Cambodia gambling dens premiered in Phnom Penh in 1994, but were forced to close in the late nineties, leaving only 1 gambling den in the capital, the Naga Resort. The Naga, an anchored ship gambling den, contains 150 slot machine games and sixty table games. The Naga river boat never closes with 42 tables of mini-punto banco, 4 tables of blackjack, 10 of roulette, two of Caribbean Stud Poker, and one each of Pai-Gow and Tai-Sai.

The initial gambling hall in Poipet, the Holiday Palace, premiered in the late nineties and the Golden Crown quickly opened. There are one hundred and fifty slot machine games and 5 table games at the Golden Crown and 104 slot machines and 68 tables at the Holiday Palace. The newest Holiday Palace Casino and Resort highlights 300 one armed bandits and seventy gaming tables and the Princess Hotel and Casino, also in Poipet, has 166 slot machines and 96 table games, including eighty seven baccarat (the most popular game), Fan Tan, and Pai Gow. In addition, there is the Casino Tropicana, with 135 slot machines and sixty six of the normal tables, as well as 1 table of Casino Stud Poker. An additional of the eight gambling halls in Poipet, also a part of a hotel, is the Princess Casino with 166 slot machines and 97 casino games. The Star Vegas Casino is part of an international resort and hotel complex that features many conveniences in addition to the gambling den, which houses 10,000 square feet of 130 slots and 88 tables.
