Cheers mate. On a business note.....

Labor is very cheap, as most know...

There are a fair share but not a lot of westerners running around, nice suits, seem to a man(not met a female western employee) to be in tune with gambling and very willing and able to talk with a western customer. If anything, they say too much?

The often heard rumor is that the Prime Minister's family is involved with it all...to what extent and all that I of course don't know....It's goes without saying that a PM with this many years would have to be in on the deals.

I'm going to search out now the new charter aircraft I saw at the airport when departing. I had read something about it. To succeed with the new tower completed(several years out) they will have to not only compete with Macau but Manila.

Hey Guys, a close friend of mine is visiting cambodia and will be going to nagaworld. Do tourist need to bring physical passport to enter the casino or just ID card is allowed? He don't like to travel around with passport just in case he loses it.

No hassle what so ever entering/exiting the casino. No ID check etc.. As a footnote to that remark, suggest your friend do as I do, make a color copy of the front page of his passport, fold it in half, and have that laminated. In this case he/she now has a somewhat valid ID in his pocket and no fears really. It's a smart thing to do in case of a medical emergency if nothing else. I don't think they have the $600- $10,000.usd "IRS"(or ID) nonsense either, but haven't had the opportunity to verify. They do have a card to track play which of course is easy to get and free. The cheap ground floor buffet is very easy to qualify for(an ongoing now three year promotion) and decent.(not to be confused with a Las Vegas buffet) You can use the passport copy described to sign up for it.

ps: Also carry a couple/five Hotel cards where he's staying.

ps2: Sim cards sold at the airport exit just outside the door, $2.usd. Suggest "Metfone" for both data and actual phone use. Good company so far, as are all I guess. The $2.usd data sim lasted two weeks for me.(no downloads)

The points earned are good for a year.

There is some rating problems with table games. Staff just doesn't seem to be able to figure it out as opposed to bad attitude. The machine games however are all computer generated. You insert your card, it keeps track etc..

Yes of course, you can earn room comps but it is not small potatoes in terms of average bet and time. I think it's 80 points for one nights room. As an example, I had exactly 4 hours of roulette at $200.usd average wager(rated, was actually a little more), and earned 76 points. Maybe that should have been 80 points, but it was 76 in the system that fine afternoon.(I was winning is the only reason I was there that long and bet that much)

The other food options are also very expensive and require substantial play. The upstairs buffet is 25 points, the sit down joints even higher. There was one small noodle shop apx. 10 points. The buffet promotion I mention was something like "earn 5 points today and get a free buffet". So, again using common sense and simple math, which doesn't always work, if your friend played one hour even in a slot machine he most likely would qualify for one ground floor buffet. For room comps you are looking at four hours apx $200.usd average.(I assume valid assumption for blackjack and baccarat as well as the other games on offer(names of which I don't even recall))

I have no idea about using points in the gift shop and/or retail stores. I doubt it, but simply don't know.

There is good Chinese food in Phnom Penh anyhow so no need to strive for comps at Nagaworld. Forget Khmer food or any "fast food" options. Stick with Chinese and be happy and "Have a nice day" as the post it note said at Clinton Correctional.

NokTang,

I have two questions. After looking at the casino's website I have notice something.

1.) Does the casino allow you to record the baccarat shoe or that is not allowed and you must rely on the electronic board.

2.) To move the shoe do you have to play every hand? Or do they allow spread betting banker and player? Even better they offer unlimited free hands?

Thanks
NokTang

Hello. Just saw your inquiry as I have been off the forum for a few months. Sorry.

As far as recording the baccarat shoe results, of course that is "allowed". Never heard of nor read of not being allowed to do same in baccarat. I've actually seen people doing it in Nagaworld both low and high limits tables.

As for moving the shoe, I've not observed the private areas enough to render an opinion on this. I've also not seen the lower limit tables dealing without a wager but remember, my observations are just that. I didn't ask about this subject as not relevant to me. As for spread betting I would anticipate no hassle. As for free hands being dealt, doubt it at a low limit table. Bottom line, I'm not much help on this inquiry, sorry.

See next post.
