Roxy Casino in Cambodia has scheduled its grand opening for August 12, parent company Cell Aquaculture Ltd said in a filing to the Australian Securities Exchange.

Roxy Casino features a main gaming hall with 15 gaming tables and eight “online gaming tables”, plus a premium gaming area with five tables offering high-stake games.
The casino, which operates round the clock, also has slot machines and a sports betting area focused on international football games.

Roxy Casino is just 200 metres from the border from Cambodia to South Vietnam.
