Tanzania is an East Coast African country, which was a German colony until 1919 and thereafter, a British Mandate until 1961 when it gained its independence. There are many factors that set Tanzania apart from the rest of Africa, with the highest peak on the continent, Mt Kilimanjaro, and the precious gemstone, Tanzanite, discovered in 1967 by Tiffany’s.
Gambling is legal in Tanzania and there are a total of three casinos to choose from while visiting the region. All the Tanzanian casinos are situated in Dar es Salaam, its former capital, which is a favorite tourist destination today. The largest casino in Dar es Salaam is a hotel resort, as well, and is known as New Africa Hotel & Casino. Here you have at your disposal 18 table games of roulette, blackjack, and poker, as well as 175 slot machines.
The other two Tanzanian casinos are Le Grande Casino and Sea Cliff Casino, which are also hotel resorts. All the Tanzanian casinos serve alcoholic beverages and snacks on the house, but you will have to be 18 years of age or more in order to legally enjoy any such entertainment.
It is very convenient to book your stay at one of these resorts, as you can enjoy all the facilities under one roof, such as dining in different restaurants, shopping, and gambling during the day or at night. The local language in Tanzania is Swahili; however, English is widely spoken, especially in organizations that deal with tourists on a daily basis.
Casinos are the only legal forms of gambling in Tanzania, and they follow international rules and regulations of casino practices. Ensure you understand completely all house rules before you engage in any form of gambling in order to avoid any misunderstanding in the process.
If you are new to the gambling world, Tanzania casinos also provide free lessons with its professional and experienced staff, which you will need to enquire about and enroll in advance. Once you feel confident, you can also try your hand at becoming rich over night. The casino opening hours are from 2 pm in the afternoon to 3 – 4 am, depending on the amount of guests still playing at the closing time.
A visit to Tanzania promises adventure, excitement, and riches any way you look at, whether you are taking a safari, climbing Mt Kilimanjaro, shopping for Tanzanite, or rolling the dice in any of its casinos. Good Luck!
