House often wins, but homeowner out of luck

An open-house for gambling in Kampong Cham’s Kampong Siem district was so open that even the police could find it.

After months of fun times for local punters, police cottoned on to the illegal gaming within and suitably shut the “casino” down, arresting the home’s owner in the process.

Evidently, the man was either a poor dealer or a good banker – police confiscated only $30. The suspect’s explanation to that was that those involved only ever bet small amounts of cash. NOKORWAT
