Casinos in Mozambique

The consistent rareness in the numbers of, Mozambique’s casinos is in a sense somewhat uncertain, in one way or another.

In past times, the region was a spot where many South Africans would vacation to be away from the especially restricting regulations on betting (and, it has to be said, mixing with other races) that they had at home. For these reasons, you can count on somewhat of a developing area to accommodate that tourist sector.

However, perhaps it is not much of a surprise. The state is certainly the most bankrupt on the planet, having been through a distressing civil war (followed by crushing floods) from which it is still, very slowly, recovering. This could make a place much less of a vacation focal point, although there is today a flourishing scene along several of the region’s outstanding beaches.

It is added to that accurate that regionally at a minimum, Mozambique’s casinos have had to cross with casinos in the freshly liberalized South Africa, inclusive of the notable Sun City founded by the Kerzner family establishment.

Here is a list of Casinos in Mozambique:

Maputo: Polana Casino Hotel

There are 78 slot machines and also video poker games, five tables of American roulette, four blackjack tables, also one poker table.

Namaacha: Sol Libombos Hotel Casino

There are 40 slot machines, American roulette, and also two tables for poker and punto banco.

It is thought that over time the total tourism industry in Mozambique will flourish productively. While the local languages are, of course, African, there is also the portion of Portuguese from the old colonial power and the fresh and expanding introduction of English, both from South Africa and as part of the world phenomenon. The country is particularly cheap (evidently, as it is really poor) and as above, has some of the most attractive beaches world wide, fronting onto the Indian Ocean. Those are the types of elements that make tourism agents drool, and as the country climbs out of its current slump, it’s likely that not only will tourism expand, but that the list of casinos in Mozambique will grow longer as well.

While the country is not likely to ever replenish its image as a target for partying South Africans, as there are now other alternatives closer to home for them to oblige in, the growth of a long distance tourism business is being planned. This would be to oblige Europeans wanting winter sun, as a break from the bleakness of the Northern Hemisphere winter. In addition, of course, the best prawns (shrimp) around the world are just offshore, in the Mozambique Channel.
