After the shutdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Star Vegas Resort is resuming activities with restrictions.

Cambodia.- Star Vegas Resort, Donaco’s casino resort on Cambodia’s border with Thailand is reopening after a six-month shutdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

According to a filing delivered by the Australian-listed promoter, the property will “operate on a limited scale for patrons located in Cambodia”. That resort will not currently be able to receive clients from Thailand or other destinations.

The company said:”The border with Thailand, where most of the casino’s patrons have traditionally originated, remains closed”. However, the firm expects the reopening will “allow the company to test its operational systems whilst ensuring the health and well-being of staff and visitors”.

The venue had been closed since April 1, when the Cambodian government mandated lockdown measures to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus. On July 29, Donaco sent a filing to the Australian Securities Exchange, saying it was awaiting a government inspection of Star Vegas in order to be able to reopen.

Donaco said: “The company will continue to maintain its tight cost control strategy, while operations remain at limited operating capacity; and management will maintain the discretion to tailor up or down the pace of operations to local conditions.”

“Donaco’s two casinos are ready to resume… full operations as and when conditions ameliorate, post Covid-19 and in conjunction with the flow of cross border travel with the reopening of international borders.”
