The basic shortage in the numbers of, Mozambique’s casinos is in one sense more or less puzzling, in one way or another.

In past times, the country was a region where lots of South Africans would travel to to disappear from the incredibly restricting regulations on games of chance (and, it has to be said, mixing with other races) that they had at home. As a result, you may expect something of an advancing spot to oblige that tourist market.

Still, maybe it isn’t much of a surprise. The region is one of the most pauperized on the planet, having gone through a horrifying civil war (followed by damaging floods) from which it is still, very slowly, coming around. This is liable to make a location much less of a tourist place, though there is at the moment a favorable setting along various of the country’s stunning beaches.

It is at the same time valid that regionally to a certain extent, Mozambique’s casinos have had to compete with several others in the lately liberalized South Africa, including the well-known Sun City founded by the Kerzner family management.

Here’s a list of Casinos in Mozambique:

Maputo: Polana Casino Hotel

There are seventy-eight slot machines and video poker games, 5 tables of American roulette, four blackjack tables, and 1 poker table.

Namaacha: Sol Libombos Hotel Casino

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

It is thought that over time the whole tourism business in Mozambique will thrive conclusively. While the local languages are, apparently, African, there is as well the portion of Portuguese from the old colonial power and the fresh and increasing awakening of English, both from South Africa and as part of the world phenomenon. The country is particularly cheap (naturally, as it is really poor) and as above, has some of the most stunning beaches world wide, fronting onto the Indian Ocean. Those are the types of things that make tourism agents drool, and as the country ascends out of its existent 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 likely to ever regain its image as a place for partying South Africans, as there are now other picks closer to home for them to engross in, the growth of a long distance tourism business is being arranged. This would be to oblige Europeans looking for winter sun, as a break from the dullness of the Northern Hemisphere winter. Plus, also, the best prawns (shrimp) on the planet come from just offshore, in the Mozambique Channel.
