Casinos in Mozambique
December 22nd, 2009 by Jaiden

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

In years before now, the country was a location where a lot of South Africans would visit to be away from the extremely prohibitive regulations on gambling (and, it has to be said, mixing with other races) that they had at home. Hence, you could think of somewhat of a flourishing business to oblige that tourist trade.

On the other hand, maybe it is not much of a surprise. The country is certainly the most barren on the globe, having gone through a horrible civil war (followed by devastating floods) from which it is still, very slowly, getting back on its feet. This tends to make a place much less of a travel target, although there is at this moment a inviting setting along a couple of the country’s beautiful beaches.

It is at the same time confirmed that regionally to a certain degree, casinos in Mozambique have had to partake with several others in the recently liberalized South Africa, which comprises of the recognized 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 as well as video poker games, 5 tables of American roulette, four blackjack tables, along with 1 poker table.

Namaacha: Sol Libombos Hotel Casino

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

It is thought that over time the total tourism industry in Mozambique will progress dramatically. While the local languages are, clearly, African, there is in addition the balance of Portuguese from the old colonial power and the innovative and growing inception of English, both from South Africa and as part of the worldly phenomenon. The country is particularly cheap (obviously, as it is extremely poor) and as above, has some of the most stunning beaches world wide, fronting onto the Indian Ocean. Those are the kinds of features that make tourism executives drool, and as the country ascends out of its existent slump, it is likely that not only will tourism build, but that the list of casinos in Mozambique will grow longer as well.

While the country is not likely to ever reclaim its notoriety as a focal point for partying South Africans, as there are now other selections closer to home for them to revel in, the enhancement of a long distance tourism sector is being planned. This would be to cater to Europeans looking forward to winter sun, as a release from the dullness of the Northern Hemisphere winter. Additionally, also, the finest prawns (shrimp) over the world are just offshore, in the Mozambique Channel.
