Pailin casino Dreamworld opens May 9

Entertainment Gaming Asia, an American Stock Exchange-listed company with a regional presence in both Cambodia and the Philippines, will launch its Dreamworld Casino in Pailin province on Wednesday, according to a company statement.

Dreamworld’s opening is the first phase of a US$2.5 million casino project expected to comprise 1,100 square metres of gaming space, 30 game tables and 40 slot machines near the Thailand-Cambodia border, the statement said.

The casino is to be Dreamworld’s first such development project to open, and it expects to draw “mass market and VIP premium players visiting from surrounding areas”.

“With our operational expertise, quality gaming offerings and dedication to the highest level of customer service, we believe that will redefine the regional gaming experience in our markets,” Entertainment Gaming Asia chairman and CEO Clarence Chung said in the statement.

EGA’s Cambodian operations have so far created 600 jobs for the country, and another 400 are expected by 2013, Chung said.

EGA has the option to lease about 23,000 square metres of land adjacent to Dreamworld for additional development, including further casino operations, hotel rooms, a spa and entertainment facilities, according to the statement.

EGA officials could not be reached yesterday for further comment.
