Cambodia casino industry has passed a milestone as the country has issued its 150th casino license.

According to the figures released by Cambodia’s Ministry of Economy and Finance, there are 150 active casino licenses at the end of 2018, up from just 98 at the end of 2017. The Preah Sihanouk province alone boasts of 88 active casino licenses.

The government has yet to provide specifics on how much revenue it reaped from the gaming industry in 2018. But Ros Phirun, deputy director of the General Department of Financial Industry, told the Phnom Penh Post that the ministry had previously forecast gaming tax and fee revenue of $56m. That would be more than twice the sum the government collected in 2014.
