Issued by the State Bank of Vietnam, dong banknotes comes in denominations ranging from 1,000 to 500,000. The Vietnamese currency is continuously plagued by inflation, making it one of the world's weakest currencies.

Players in Vietnam can thus enjoy their favorite live casino games like baccarat, poker, blackjack, and roulette without having to concern themselves with currency conversions.
