Hong Kong gaming firm signs on to run Poipet VIP room

Hong Kong-listed gaming investment firm Amax International Holdings Ltd signed a three-year licence agreement with Poipet’s Crown Resorts on Thursday, giving it the rental of a VIP room starting on December 1, according to a filing on the Hong Kong stock exchange.

Operations of the room’s 13 baccarat tables will be outsourced to an unnamed third-party junket operator who currently operates VIP rooms in Singapore and Saipan and whose target customers will primarily be from Thailand, Macau and mainland China, the company said. Amax previously had operations in Macau that were shut down by the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau in 2015.
