The new Vietnam casino called Corona is soon going to allow punters to play at casino. Vietnam lawmakers passed legislation in March 2017 that called for a test program to the federal ban on Vietnamese entering land-based casinos located in the country. The government recently announced that the forthcoming Corona Resort and Casino on Phu Quoc will be the first property to allow citizens entry. It will also provide three restaurants, KTV-karaoke, VIP play facilities and a private sky casino.
This casino at Phu Quoc Island in Veitnam is the home to some of the Asia’s best casinos and as an international gambling destination with superb architecture, fine dining, exciting night life and luxury five star accommodations. The $2 billion resort will feature 2,000 slot machines and more than 200 table games, 1,440 hotel rooms, convention center, numerous restaurants, and retail shopping. Vingroup, a leading real estate developer that has close relationships with the Vietnamese government, is behind the Corona Resort.
Also offers 400 roulette tables and 300 tables for Blackjack, Baccarat and others. Interestingly you can stay at this island to enjoy the casino as it’s visa free for 30 days. There are direct flights to reach here from Singapore, Thailand, Sweden, Russia, China, India, Korea, Cambodia and UK.
Vietnamese are allowed to gamble here
Vietnamese nationals as well as any foreign nationals are allowed to gamble here. Only requirement age is one should be 21 years of age and above. Also you need to show your ID proof that you earn $440 US dollars per month as salary or 10MN million Vietnamese Dong, you must not have any criminal records and no one in your family should have objection to your gambling including your parents or spouse or kids. Note that local residents would have to pay US$44 as an entry fee per day or get a monthly pass of $1100.
The Corona casino will be the sole gaming venue that citizens can enter in all of Vietnam. But even if the government takes steps to expand the three-year pilot program to casinos in other parts of the country, only the wealthiest residents will be able to proceed to the gaming floor.
According to the International Monetary Fund, the average salary per adult in Vietnam last year totaled just $1,800. The resident casino program mandates that Vietnamese pay a $50 entry fee per visit, and purchase a $1,100 permit.
While the vast majority of citizens won’t qualify, Vietnam is experiencing an economic boom that has resulted in a larger upper class. PricewaterhouseCoopers said last year that Vietnam might be the fastest-growing economy in the world.
It’s why major casino operators like Las Vegas Sands have expressed interest in potentially developing a casino resort in Vietnam. A Sands spokesperson said in 2016 that the company “has been interested in Vietnam for years.” Sands billionaire CEO Mr. Adelson has made multiple trips to the country.
