Mozambique Casinos

The general insufficiency in the numbers of, Mozambique’s casinos is in one sense somewhat bewildering, in one way or another.

In recent years, the country was a region where numerous South Africans would drop by to disappear from the especially prohibitive rules on gambling (and, it has to be said, mixing with other races) that they had at home. For these reasons, you would bank on somewhat of a booming area to satisfy that tourist market.

Still, perhaps it isn’t all that much of an astonishment. The area is truly the poorest world wide, having been through a distressing civil war (followed by destructive floods) from which it is still, very slowly, bouncing back. This might make a spot lesser of a tourist focal point, even though there is at the moment a developing environment along several of the city’s breathtaking beaches.

It is at the same time valid that regionally at a minimum, casinos in Mozambique have had to encounter with many others in the recently liberalized South Africa, including the exemplary Sun City founded by the Kerzner family management.

Here’s a list of Casinos in Mozambique:

Maputo: Polana Casino Hotel

There are seventy eight slot machines and video poker games, five tables of American roulette, 4 blackjack tables, and one poker table.

Namaacha: Sol Libombos Hotel Casino

There are forty slot machines, American roulette, as well as 2 tables for poker and punto banco.

It is thought that over time the full tourism industry in Mozambique will flourish efficaciously. While the local languages are, obviously, African, there is added to that the portion of Portuguese from the old colonial power and the new and accelerating origin of English, both from South Africa and as part of the world-wide phenomenon. The country is considerably cheap (clearly, as it is very poor) and as above, has some of the most breathtaking beaches across the globe, fronting onto the Indian Ocean. Those are the class of assets that make tourism representatives drool, and as the country ascends out of its existing slump, it is likely that not only will tourism develop, but that the list of casinos in Mozambique will grow longer too.

While the country is improbable to ever recapture its character as a target for partying South Africans, as there are now other selections closer to home for them to relish in, the advancement of a long distance tourism sector is being arranged. This would be to satisfy Europeans hopeful for winter sun, as a break from the dreariness of the Northern Hemisphere winter. In addition, obviously, the greatest prawns (shrimp) on the planet come from just offshore, in the Mozambique Channel.
