Since its inception in October 1997, Emnotweni Casino has established itself as a premier entertainment destination in Mpumalanga and within Nelspruit. 

Over the years the casino has staged a myriad of world-class events, shows and golf tournaments which have attracted many visitors to the city.

The Emnotweni complex offers an array of entertainment options. It adjoins Riverside Mall, one of the region’s biggest shopping centres, with Explorers Restaurant and Jacaranda FM's state-of-the-art regional broadcasting studio seamlessly connecting the casino with the mall's promotion court and movies@ Emnotweni. 

The casino itself boasts 425 Slot machines offering a wide variety of games and denominations. In addition, there are 18 gaming Tables - 9 American Roulette Tables, 5 Blackjack Tables, 3 Poker Tables and a TouchTableMultiPLAY Roulette. The Salon Privé offers serious gamers privacy and exclusivity. 

Situated in the heart of Nelspruit, one of South Africa's most dynamic emerging cities, and within close proximity to the Kruger National Park (SANPARKS' pride), as well as the Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport (KMIA) Emnotweni Casino is often used as a launching pad by tourists for their adventures in other parts of the region. The Southern Sun and StayEasy Emnotweni hotels are both within walking distance of Emnotweni casino.

Overview 

Emnotweni – The place to be in the Lowveld
Emnotweni Casino first opened the doors of its temporary facility in October 1997, introducing a new era of entertainment to Nelspruit and the surrounding areas. It was also the first legal casino to open its doors in South Africa. With the completion of the permanent casino in November 1999, Emnotweni Casino firmly established itself as one of Mpumalanga's most popular entertainment tourist destinations.

Today, it is very much a permanent feature of the Lowveld and provides entertainment and much-needed jobs for the communities around it and continues to be an excellent tourist attraction.

Besides the casino, the Emnotweni complex includes the a la carte Explorers restaurant, two Tsogo Sun Hotels and the Arena Conference Centre. For your choice of shopping and alternative dining or entertainment options – such as go-karts, movies@ Emnotweni, an XD-theatre, Magic Company, Mafunyane Waterpark and more - you can conveniently enter the adjacent Riverside Mall directly from the casino.

Emnotweni offers the best of both worlds: a modern casino complex fashioned in the charming and inviting spirit of the belle epoque era, and the quaint tranquility of the Nelspruit Botanical gardens. The Southern Sun Emnotweni hotel has an entry to the Botanical Gardens.
