Sihanoukville Casinos

Has anybody here actually been to any of the casinos in Sihanoukville?
What was your impression and how did they compare to other Asian casinos that you have been to?

Apart from a couple of trips to Macau, where a kiwi friend is a VIP GRO, most of the gambling dens that I have been to on the Mainland have been sordid underground places. I had some Spaniard friends in Shanghai who were professional poker hustlers targeting Chinese no-hopers and I enjoyed hanging out with them for a while, a few years back.

I am guessing that the Sihanoukville places are more like Korean places than their European counterparts. Even when I was working back in the UK there was always a big difference between clubs favoured by locals, and the darker dingier clubs (even though they were often exactly the same brand) that were filled with over excited Hongkies screaming "Pik-Char!!" Oops, I am show my age now. :oops:

So, how are western guests treated in Sihanoukville establishments? I generally dress well and can speak good Mandarin but do not want to be refused entry just because I am white. Is that likely to happen?
