Cambodia.- Cambodian casinos will be allowed to reopen if they obtain permission from the country’s Ministry of Health.
The information was posted on social media by government spokesperson Phay Siphan, who said prime minister Hun Sen had made the announcement at a Cabinet meeting.
The requirements that casinos will have to comply with in order to get the permit were not disclosed and venues in the country remained closed as of the weekend, GGR Asia reported.
Casinos in Cambodia have been closed since April 1 due to Covid-19 restrictions. Until last year, there were 169 casino licences in the country, with 91 located in Sihanoukville.
The country is discussing a new law to regulate the gaming industry to enable the government to raise more funds from taxes.
