The local tourism sector has started attracting more investors with a new Casino on the cards for Malawi.
According to the Malawi Gaming Board chief, the Palms Casino will be opening in Lilongwe, this summer.
Master Maliro disclosed that they have had good reception since they opened the Marina Casino in the capital city.
“Due to the fact that the casino is located in a hotel, we have been able to attract numerous Chinese nationals who like to gamble and these people are the majority of the customers we have at the casino,” Maliro explained.
The Marino Casino was opened in November last year at the Golden Peacock Hotel and has gaming facilities ranging from Baccarat, Blackjack, Roulette as well as Poker games and slot machines.
In the space of three years Malawi has seen at least two gaming companies opening shop in the country.
The development is attributed to efforts by the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism in selling Malawi to investors through platforms such as the Investment Forums.
The Boards’ 2016 annual report states that Malawi is expected to have a total of five licensed Casinos.
Such facilities create employment opportunities for locals as they require a big workforce.
