Casinos in Mozambique

[ English | Deutsch | Español | Français | Italiano ]

The constant scarcity in the numbers of, Mozambique’s casinos is in a sense kind of bewildering, in one way or another.

In years gone by, the region was a destination where a lot of South Africans would drop by to get away from the especially confining regulations on games of chance (and, it has to be said, mixing with other races) that they had at home. Thus, you are likely to bargain on a picture of an advancing business to oblige that tourist business.

However, perhaps it isn’t considerably a bewilderment. The region is evidently the most destitute over the world, having been through a frightening civil war (followed by destructive floods) from which it is still, very slowly, coming around. This may make a region much less of a vacation destination, as much as there is today a developing display along several of the territory’s stunning beaches.

It is in addition valid that regionally at least, Mozambique’s casinos have had to cross with many others in the freshly liberalized South Africa, including the prominent Sun City founded by the Kerzner family management.

Here is a list of Mozambique’s casinos:

Maputo: Polana Casino Hotel

There are 78 slot machines and video poker games, 5 tables of American roulette, 4 blackjack tables, in addition a poker table.

Namaacha: Sol Libombos Hotel Casino

There are 40 slot machines, American roulette, and also 2 tables for poker as well as punto banco.

It is thought that over time the full tourism industry in Mozambique will expand efficaciously. While the local languages are, obviously, African, there is as well the balance of Portuguese from the old colonial power and the innovative and accelerating introduction of English, both from South Africa and as part of the world-wide phenomenon. The country is extremely cheap (obviously, as it is so poor) and as above, has some of the most outstanding beaches on the globe, fronting onto the Indian Ocean. Those are the types of elements that make tourism executives drool, and as the country advances out of its prevailing slump, it’s likely that not only will tourism grow, but that the list of casinos in Mozambique will grow longer also.

While the country is doubtful to ever reinstate its notoriety as a destination for partying South Africans, as there are now other choices closer to home for them to relish in, the expansion of a long distance tourism business is being set-up. This would be to serve Europeans bargaining on winter sun, as a getaway from the gloominess of the Northern Hemisphere winter. In addition, clearly, the finest prawns (shrimp) worldwide derive from just offshore, in the Mozambique Channel.
