Mozambique Casinos

by Turner on December 20th, 2009

The constant shortage in the numbers of, Mozambique’s casinos is in 1 sense rather baffling, in one way or another.

In recent years, the city was a destination where several South Africans would go to to disappear from the astonishingly restrictive regulations on gambling (and, it has to be said, mixing with other races) that they had at home. So, you can anticipate a concept of a thriving area to oblige that tourist sector.

Still, maybe it isn’t particularly a bombshell. The country is evidently the most destitute in the world, having gone through a frightening civil war (followed by devastating floods) from which it is still, very slowly, coming around. This may make a region much less of a vacation location, although there is today a flourishing display along some of the region’s attractive beaches.

It is added to that legitimate that regionally somewhat, Mozambique’s casinos have had to compete with several others in the freshly liberalized South Africa, which includes the well-known Sun City founded by the Kerzner family corporation.

Here is a list of Casinos in Mozambique:

Maputo: Polana Casino Hotel

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

Namaacha: Sol Libombos Hotel Casino

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

It is thought that over time the complete tourism industry in Mozambique will build conclusively. While the local languages are, clearly, African, there is added to that the portion of Portuguese from the old colonial power and the fresh and growing inception of English, both from South Africa and as part of the worldwide phenomenon. The country is quite cheap (obviously, as it is extremely poor) and as above, has some of the most captivating beaches across the globe, fronting onto the Indian Ocean. Those are the kinds of elements that make tourism agents drool, and as the country escalates out of its prevailing slump, it is likely that not only will tourism build, but that the list of casinos in Mozambique will grow longer for sure.

While the country is improbable to ever replenish its reputation as a target for partying South Africans, as there are now other choices closer to home for them to relish in, the elevation of a long distance tourism sector is being set-up. This would be to oblige Europeans hopeful for winter sun, as an escape from the gloominess of the Northern Hemisphere winter. And, obviously, the best prawns (shrimp) in the world come from just offshore, in the Mozambique Channel.
