Gaming firm to expand Poipet operations

American Stock Exchange-listed Entertainment Gaming Asia Inc has announced it will build and operate a slot hall as an addition to an existing casino in Poipet city on Cambodia’s border with Thailand, according to a company statement.

The hall, which is expected to open with 300 slot machines in December, would operate under the company’s Dreamworld brand.

Casinos under construction and expected to open this year in Pailin and Kampot provinces would also operate under the brand, according to a US Securities and Exchange Commission filing in early March.

Company representatives contacted in Phnom Penh yesterday said they didn’t have information on the Poipet slot hall.

The company provides slot machines to Malaysian-backed NagaWorld hotel in Phnom Penh.

Hong Kong-based Melco Group owns a 39-per cent stake in Entertainment Gaming Asia.
