• Casinos in Mozambique

    [ English ]

    The consistent lack in the numbers of, Mozambique’s casinos is in one sense more or less questionable, in one way or another.

    In past times, the area was a destination where several South Africans would visit to get away from the especially prohibitive protocols on betting (and, it has to be said, mixing with other races) that they had at home. Therefore, you may bargain on a aura of a thriving spot to satisfy that tourist trade.

    But, maybe it isn’t particularly an astonishment. The city is certainly the most bankrupt in the world, having been through a gruesome civil war (followed by crushing floods) from which it is still, very slowly, rebounding. This might make a region less of a tourist focal point, as much as there is now a thriving scene along a few of the state’s beautiful beaches.

    It is at the same time credible that regionally somewhat, casinos in Mozambique have had to compete with many others in the lately liberalized South Africa, inclusive of the recognized 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 as well as video poker games, five tables of American roulette, 4 blackjack tables, also a poker table.

    Namaacha: Sol Libombos Hotel Casino

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

    It is thought that over time the entire tourism industry in Mozambique will build productively. While the local languages are, of course, African, there is additionally the balance of Portuguese from the old colonial power and the innovative and growing awakening of English, both from South Africa and as part of the world-wide phenomenon. The country is considerably cheap (naturally, as it is extremely poor) and as above, has some of the most outstanding beaches over the world, fronting onto the Indian Ocean. Those are the kinds of things that make tourism agents drool, and as the country escalates out of its existing slump, it is likely that not only will tourism grow, but that the list of Mozambique’s casinos will grow longer too.

    While the country is not likely to ever recapture its notoriety as a target for partying South Africans, as there are now other choices closer to home for them to oblige in, the growth of a long distance tourism sector is being line up. This would be to accommodate Europeans bargaining on winter sun, as a retreat from the bleakness of the Northern Hemisphere winter. Additionally, to top it off, the finest prawns (shrimp) on the planet derive from just offshore, in the Mozambique Channel.
