Eight bettings houses are situated in the relatively tiny area in the city of Poipet in Cambodia. This area of Cambodia gambling dens is in the prime area, a three to four drive from Bangkok and Macao, the 2 largest betting centres in Asia. Cambodia casinos do a thriving business with Thai workers and visitors from Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore, with only extremely few Westerners. The extraordinary earnings acquired from the casinos ranges from 7 dollars.5 million to over 12.5 million, and there are few restrictions or registration prerequisites for gambling establishment ownership. Ownership is presumed to be largely Thai; on the other hand, investment sources are vague.
