Cambodia’s casino industry has had more time than others to rebound following the COVID-19 pandemic. However, based on the latest data from the government, the legal casino ecosystem is failing to gain traction.
Cambodia was one of the first countries in the region to reopen its borders when it seemed COVID-19 was no longer a threat. However, it is still experiencing a major shortage of tourists.
Currently, only 20 casinos are operational. This is out of more than 200 that held a license as of 2021. As a result, Cambodia first closed its land-based casinos in March 2020.
