This study aims to assess the level of casino tourism development as perceived by residents of the Grand Ho Tram Strip in Vietnam. This study is timely and crucial because the local government needs to make a decision regarding the extension of the casino tourism development based on local residents’ opinions about responsible or sustainable development, taking local residents’ wellbeing and their futures into consideration. Positive economic impacts did not entail satisfaction in the casino tourism community. Other structural paths were all significant in explaining resultant variables and signs regarding their relationships were the same as hypothesized. The results of this study stress the need to monitor community residents’ reactions to casino tourism development.
