The general scarcity in the numbers of, Mozambique’s casinos is in a sense quite bewildering, in one way or another.

In past times, the territory was a location where plenty of South Africans would visit to disappear from the exceptionally prohibitory principles on gaming (and, it has to be said, mixing with other races) that they had at home. For these reasons, you could bargain on somewhat of an advancing sector to accommodate that tourist sector.

But, perhaps it isn’t particularly a bewilderment. The area is evidently the most destitute in the world, having been through a horrible civil war (followed by shattering floods) from which it is still, very slowly, recovering. This may make a region much less of a vacation target, despite the fact that there is presently a favorable scene along a couple of the region’s breathtaking beaches.

It is also accurate that regionally at least, casinos in Mozambique have had to compete with several others in the recently liberalized South Africa, which includes the famous Sun City founded by the Kerzner family corporation.

Here is a list of Casinos in Mozambique:

Maputo: Polana Casino Hotel

There are seventy-eight slot machines and video poker games, five tables of American roulette, 4 blackjack tables, along with 1 poker table.

Namaacha: Sol Libombos Hotel Casino

There are forty slot machines, American roulette, and 2 tables for poker as well as punto banco.

It is thought that over time the full tourism industry in Mozambique will expand adequately. While the local languages are, apparently, African, there is at the same time the balance of Portuguese from the old colonial power and the fresh and accelerating inception of English, both from South Africa and as part of the worldwide phenomenon. The country is very cheap (clearly, as it is really poor) and as above, has some of the most breathtaking beaches worldwide, fronting onto the Indian Ocean. Those are the combination of features that make tourism representatives drool, and as the country advances out of its arrived at slump, it is likely that not only will tourism boost, but that the list of Mozambique’s casinos will grow longer too.

While the country is not likely to ever reclaim its distinction as a location for partying South Africans, as there are now other picks closer to home for them to oblige in, the enhancement of a long distance tourism business is being set-up. This would be to accommodate Europeans looking forward to winter sun, as a getaway from the distress of the Northern Hemisphere winter. Plus, clearly, the best prawns (shrimp) in the world derive from just offshore, in the Mozambique Channel.
