The constant lack in the numbers of, Mozambique’s casinos is in a sense kind of questionable, in one way or another.

In years gone by, the territory was a spot where a lot of South Africans would vacation to detach themselves from the extremely prohibitory protocols on gambling (and, it has to be said, mixing with other races) that they had at home. Thus, you are likely to expect something of a developing area to accommodate that tourist business.

On the other hand, maybe it is not really an astonishment. The country is truly the most barren in the world, having gone through a horrific civil war (followed by catastrophic floods) from which it is still, very slowly, recovering. This can make a location a lot less of a travel prospect, even though there is presently a favorable setting along several of the state’s breathtaking beaches.

It is also true that regionally at least, Mozambique’s casinos have had to compete with others in the recently liberalized South Africa, which is inclusive of the exemplary Sun City founded by the Kerzner family management.

Here is a list of Casinos in Mozambique:

Maputo: Polana Casino Hotel

There are 78 slot machines as well as video poker games, five tables of American roulette, 4 blackjack tables, and 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 full tourism sector in Mozambique will flourish greatly. While the local languages are, apparently, African, there is in addition the remnant of Portuguese from the old colonial power and the innovative and growing awakening of English, both from South Africa and as part of the worldly phenomenon. The country is quite cheap (clearly, as it is extremely poor) and as above, has some of the most beautiful beaches worldwide, fronting onto the Indian Ocean. Those are the sorts of things that make tourism officials drool, and as the country climbs out of its existing slump, it’s likely that not only will tourism boost, but that the list of Mozambique’s casinos will grow longer too.

While the country is improbable to ever reinstate its image as a focal point for partying South Africans, as there are now other selections closer to home for them to derive pleasure in, the elevation of a long distance tourism sector is being arranged. This would be to accommodate Europeans wanting winter sun, as a release from the gloominess of the Northern Hemisphere winter. In addition, clearly, the greatest prawns (shrimp) in the world are just offshore, in the Mozambique Channel.
