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.
The property, located in Bavet City, in Svay Rieng Province, had a soft opening on May 26, after undergoing refurbishment and renovation.
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.
The property includes a four-star hotel with 20 rooms and a restaurant.
Roxy Casino is just 200 metres from the border from Cambodia to South Vietnam.
Cell Aquaculture says “Vietnamese locals are the most important market for the Roxy Casino due to its proximity to Ho Chi Minh City”, Vietnam’s largest city. Bavet is 87 kilometres from Ho Chi Mihn City.
Vietnam has a population of around 92.5 million. The country has several casinos, but authorities prohibit Vietnamese punters from gambling at home, unless they hold a foreign passport.
Locals are prevented from gambling in casinos in Cambodia, but industry sources say the “no locals” policy is loosely enforced.
