Cambodia’s Century Entertainment Casino

Century Entertainment has yet to receive approval to open its new casino in Dara Sakor, following multiple delays and rising COVID-19 cases.

Cambodia’s Century Entertainment Casino Remains closed

Century Entertainment International Holdings Ltd will have to rethink the opening date of its new casino as COVID-19 cases grow. This cuts the leisure and entertainment industry, i.e. tourism, off its lifeline.

The property’s opening has been rescheduled three times in recent months, with the first date set for February and each time being pushed back by one month.

Nonetheless, the property will remain on standby and continue preparations. Once the government gives its approval, Century’s casino can begin operations.

Much of this would depend on how Cambodia manages the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Initially Planned for February, Casino Still Shut

Century originally intended to open the casino in Sihanoukville, relocating from another property in the city. But the company’s chairman and CEO, Ng Man Sun, persuaded them to reconsider.

Century remains optimistic about reopening the casino. It will include 20 mass gaming tables, seven niu-niu poker tables, and ten baccarat tables, as well as other gaming options like blackjack, sic bo, live poker, and 25 VIP tables.

Cambodia is far from the only country in the region to suffer from the virus’s escalating health crisis. India is facing an unprecedented epidemic that shuts casino operations in the state of Goa.

According to official World Health Organization (WHO) data, the number of cases in Cambodia has been steadily increasing since April 7.
