she said she was a croupier in a casino... so I presumed she was in Cambodia [alias name]

There is currently a massive nationwide campaign to identify and close down illegal gambling in Cambodia whether on-line or in actual premises (bars, restaurants and illegal casinos). Many of the so-called croupiers are being released from forced labor/captivity and being repatriated to their own countries.

For reference 19 September 2022: 

 

"Prime Minister Hun Sen has ordered a crackdown on illegal gambling and related crime"

Yes indeed, but only for foreigners. Cambodian people are not allowed to gamble in such casinos. Very popular with the Thais, Vietnamese, resident/visiting Chinese, Japanese, Koreans etc. etc. especially now that the country is fully open after the pandemic.

 

In Cambodia, gambling is allowed only for foreigners, and at licensed casinos.Sep 13, 2022 (Wikipedia)
