Mozambique Casinos

Monday, 25. January 2010

The consistent deficiency in the numbers of, Mozambique’s casinos is in one sense quite puzzling, in one way or another.

In past years, the area was a spot where many South Africans would go to to escape from the extremely restricted policies on betting (and, it has to be said, mixing with other races) that they had at home. Therefore, you would count on a concept of a flourishing location to cater to that tourist market.

But, perhaps it is not really a bombshell. The nation is certainly the most barren worldwide, having gone through a gruesome civil war (followed by damaging floods) from which it is still, very slowly, bouncing back. This is liable to make a location lesser of a vacation destination, even though there is at the moment a favorable ambiance along various of the country’s breathtaking beaches.

It is at the same time confirmed that regionally to a certain degree, Mozambique’s casinos have had to partake with others in the freshly liberalized South Africa, including the exemplary Sun City founded by the Kerzner family establishment.

Here’s 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 two tables for poker as well as punto banco.

It is thought that over time the total tourism industry in Mozambique will expand greatly. While the local languages are, of course, African, there is as well the portion of Portuguese from the old colonial power and the distinctive and escalating origin of English, both from South Africa and as part of the worldwide phenomenon. The country is extremely cheap (evidently, as it is very poor) and as above, has some of the most breathtaking beaches world wide, fronting onto the Indian Ocean. Those are the class of elements that make tourism management drool, and as the country advances out of its current slump, it is likely that not only will tourism develop, but that the list of Mozambique’s casinos will grow longer too.

While the country is not expected to ever replenish its image as a target 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 set-up. This would be to oblige Europeans hopeful for winter sun, as a getaway from the blues of the Northern Hemisphere winter. Plus, obviously, the most elite prawns (shrimp) around the world are just offshore, in the Mozambique Channel.
