Cambodia Casinos - A Few Questions

Recommended Posts

Can someone share their recent experiences going from Pattaya to the Cambodia casinos... I have no need to do any visa related business...I was thinking about a 1-2 day trip as I have never gambled in Asia... I have a lot of experience in USA casinos... Coming from Pattaya, should I take the bus/van or fly ? How long is the bus/van ? What city or casino would be easiest to get to ? Do they offer any comp programs or free meals for players...How do they compare to Las Vegas in odds and payouts ? Do I need any type of visa - I am on a retirement visa now. Any other info that you think might make this trip easy. Thanks

Might have been a good idea to ask the question in the section dedicated to Cambodia, then a few expats may have seen it.

 

I have no experience with casinos but to answer some of your questions..

 

Flying to PP will cost you the most and if you decided to go to Poipet, there would be little difference in time taking into account airport check ins, the waiting etc. There are a number of casinos in Poipet (border town to Arrunyapathet) whereas in PP you would be restricted to 1, Naga World.

 

To enter Cambodia, you would need to get a 30 day tourist visa, cost around $30 plus what they scam you at the border, and there is no way of getting around that. So say goodbye to a page in your passport. If you don't already have it, you would need to get an exit permit for your retirement visa.

 

There are also a number of casinos in Chan Yeam (border town to Hat Lek), same deal on the visas but you will be scammed more there.

I would never go to Cambodia to gamble...  You would get more satisfaction by throwing all your money up in the air in a gogo...

 

Instead take a cheap flight to Macau, Singapore, or Malayasia where they are regulated to what you are more apt to be used to...

Indeed and dont expect to leave with any substantial winnings. You'll leave but not the money

I've been in Phnom Penh and Sihanoukville casinos on several occasions. I flew into Phnom Penh from Bangkok. It's about 45 mins flight then immigration etc and transport to hotel. Staying near the river makes it really easy to get to Nagaworld.

Here's a link to Osmach, near Chong Chom.

http://www.tourismcambodia.com/travelguides/provinces/oddor-meanchey/what-to-see/331_o-smach.htm

Has a great hotel.

Short walk to duty free shopping.

Lots of beautiful Cambo Girls and Local Thai Girls (Thais get across the Border for free...even have free songthaews to save them the 5 minute walk to the Casino.

I dont gamble, but it's a hive of activity!!!!

Can see why the Thais have massive gambling debts.

The hotel is actually Very impressive.

Lots of eating options. Extremely cheap.

 

"There are a/c minivans and non-a/c buses via Prasat to the Chong Chom border pass, 70km south of Surin; or you can arrange a taxi through Farang Connection, located behind Surin bus station. Cambodian visas are issued on arrival at the Chong Chom–O’Smach checkpoint, from where you can get transport to Anlong Veng and then on to Siem Reap, which is 150km from the border crossing (start negotiations for a taxi transfer to Siem Reap at B350/car, but expect to pay slightly more). There have been reports of people on visa runs being asked for more money by officials on the Cambodian side, especially if they try to return to Thailand on the same day. There’s a casino on the Cambodian side, making this crossing popular with Thai gamblers."

 

Interesting to visit.

Cheers,

I have only walked through a Cambo casino. The thing that stuck out to me was the condition of the cards, looked like they had not been changed out in months. Lord knows how much marking, intentional dents, etc had been done on them.
