Cambodia’s largest casino operator NagaCorp plans to partially reopen its flagship Phnom Penh gaming venue on Wednesday, July 8 following its three-month COVID-19 shutdown.
On Monday, NagaCorp announced an agreement with Cambodia’s Ministry of Health that will see the company reopen its VIP table game and slot machine elements of its NagaWorld casino on Wednesday. Mass market gaming operations will reopen at an unspecified later date.
NagaCorp claims the agreement was signed with the government on June 30, four days prior to the government officially announcing its decision to permit the country’s casinos to reopen. The government ordered all casinos to close on April 1 in a bid to minimize COVID-19 transmission.
