While there are surely older casinos in South Africa, given the illicit nature and widespread popularity of gambling, there is no older casino registered with the Casino Association of South Africa than the Tusk Mmabatho Casino, located in the North West province.
Tusk Mmabatho Casino has been open since September 1977, an impressive feat in a hotel and entertainment industry, so often obsessed with the new. Especially considering how many people look to online gambling these days due to its greater ease of access and the availability of low minimum deposit casinos, which allow for people to pay with less. Knowing this, the Peermont Group who owns and runs the casino these days has sought to constantly be improving on its offering with various improvements constantly being added to the Casino and Hotel, with a new spa being built just a few months ago.
Things to Do at Tusk Mmabatho Casino Resort
There are a variety of entertainment and relaxing options available at the Casinos and Resort. Peermont has always shown an understanding that they need to appeal to families, meaning that there must be activities for all ages at their resorts. Here you can find some of the highlights of why people go to Tusk Mmabatho Casino:
The Tusk Mmabatho Casino has over 150 slot machines available with 9 tables available for popular table games in both smoking and non-smoking areas. The casino’s website also features a frequently updated list of progressive jackpots that look close to paying out
Palms Retreat Wellness Spa
A day spa located within the resort, allows for a pampering break from the casino and golf that is the resort’s calling cards.
Leopard Park Golf Club
The 18-hole golf course used for championships, is one of the big tourist draws of the area. The Tusk Mmabatho Casino Resort also occasionally offers special overnight packages which include access to the golf course, so be sure to phone and check with them if there are any current specials for the golf course, if you are looking to play.
For people less interested in the casino and golf, there is a play area that features swimming pools, tennis courts and a 18-hole putt putt course, as well as jungle gyms for the kids to play at.
The surrounding areas are steeped in nature and history. From the world-famous Mafikeng Game Reserve to the various South African war monuments.
