Gambling in South Africa is growing in popularity, especially as the economy has been growing, meaning more people have money to spend on luxury activities like going to the restaurants and casinos. There are many great casinos in South Africa, but here are 5 that we feel are on the top of that list.

1. Grand West Casino, Cape Town

The Grand West Casino in Cape Town is set between the Atlantic Ocean and Table Mountain National Park, making it is a very picturesque place to visit. While at the casino, you can enjoy the usual table games such as poker and blackjack, roulette, and craps. There are also over 2500 slot machines, a massive amount of choice for anyone who loves one arm bandit type games and the reason why we think this casino is the best.

2. Gold Reef City Casino, Johannesburg

Head to Johannesburg for the Gold Reef City Casino which boasts 50 table games including roulette and a variety of poker games plus over 1700 slot machines.

3. Casino Mykonos, Langebaan

The pretty Saldanha Bay in Langebaan is where you will find the number 3 casino on our list, the Casino Mykonos. Smaller than the first 2 with just over 320 slot machines and an array of table games, it is a Greek-inspired theme that has attracted us to this one (and of course the beautiful location).

4. Emnotweni Casino, Nelspruit

Nelspruit, considered to be the gateway to Kruger National Park, is another stunning location for a casino and the Emnotweni doesn’t disappoint once you are inside. There are 425 slot machines, a wide choice of poker games and of course blackjack and roulette.

5. Desert Palace, Upington

Upington in the Northern Cape is home to our 5th casino. It is a coinless system, you play with a prepaid card. You can enjoy 7 gaming tables and 165 slot and video machines set in a gorgeous location.
