The consistent scarcity in the numbers of, Mozambique’s casinos is in one sense considerably bewildering, in one way or another.

In years gone by, the area was a region where a lot of South Africans would vacation to get away from the astonishingly restrictive standards on casino gambling (and, it has to be said, mixing with other races) that they had at home. Thus, you might bargain on somewhat of a thriving business to serve that tourist industry.

Still, perhaps it is not particularly a bombshell. The region is certainly the poorest on the globe, having been through a frightening civil war (followed by shattering floods) from which it is still, very slowly, coming around. This could make a location way less of a tourist destination, despite the fact that there is at the moment a inviting environment along various of the region’s breathtaking beaches.

It is added to that accurate that regionally at a minimum, Mozambique’s casinos have had to partake with others in the freshly liberalized South Africa, which includes the well-known Sun City founded by the Kerzner family establishment.

Here’s a list of Casinos in Mozambique:

Maputo: Polana Casino Hotel

There are seventy eight slot machines as well as video poker games, five tables of American roulette, four blackjack tables, and a poker table.

Namaacha: Sol Libombos Hotel Casino

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

It is thought that over time the complete tourism industry in Mozambique will expand efficaciously. While the local languages are, of course, African, there is added to that the portion of Portuguese from the old colonial power and the current and developing introduction of English, both from South Africa and as part of the global phenomenon. The country is particularly cheap (clearly, as it is extremely poor) and as above, has some of the most outstanding beaches worldwide, fronting onto the Indian Ocean. Those are the kinds of things that make tourism agents drool, and as the country climbs out of its prevailing slump, it is likely that not only will tourism expand, but that the list of Mozambique’s casinos will grow longer for sure.

While the country is not expected to ever regain its character as a focal point for partying South Africans, as there are now other choices closer to home for them to oblige in, the elevation of a long distance tourism industry is being planned. This would be to serve Europeans looking forward to winter sun, as a break from the bleakness of the Northern Hemisphere winter. Additionally, of course, the finest prawns (shrimp) over the world come from just offshore, in the Mozambique Channel.
