Vietnam’s Finance Ministry is planning to inspect casinos throughout the nation. Local news source, VnExpress, has unveiled this based on a government announcement. While the full details of these inspections remain undisclosed, there’s mention of several casinos not following regulations. Specifically, some have catered to unauthorized customers and offered prohibited services.
Three significant gambling hotspots in Vietnam, namely Phu Quoc Island in Kien Giang, Hoi An in Quang Nam, and Ho Tram in Ba Ria, Vung Tau, are on the ministry’s radar. However, they’re not the only ones. Six more smaller-scale casinos in locations like Hai Phong, Quang Ninh, Lao Cai, and Da Nang are also under scrutiny.
A standout in Phu Quoc Island is the Corona Resort and Casino. It has the distinction of being the only casino in Vietnam where locals meeting specific economic criteria can gamble. In contrast, Hoi An boasts of the Hoiana Resort & Golf, which has a casino reserved exclusively for foreign visitors. Similarly, Ba Ria’s Grand Ho Tram Strip offers another foreigner-only casino experience by the beach.
