Our Story About Casino Kigali

From humble beginnings…

On November 14th 2008, Casino Kigali opened its doors to become the first casino in Rwanda. The Casino is owned by a local company “Casino Games Rwanda Ltd” and managed and operated by Solna Leisure Holdings Ltd, an international management and consulting company. Solna Leisure has been active in the gaming business for over 20 years and has managed casinos in many parts of the world.

Casino Kigali recently moved to the premises of the Lemigo Hotel after operating at the Top Tower for over 7 years.  The Lemigo is located within a short walk of the newly opened Kigali Convention Center and the Kigali Heights shopping mall.

Casino Kigali has 5 tables and over 30 slot machines, and 2 – 8 Station Alfa Street Electronic Roulette Machines all in great facilities and tasteful, relaxing surroundings.

The company now employs over 50 staff, most of who have been recruited and trained locally. The casino staff are only too happy to explain the rules of the games and how to play them. Players can therefore rest assured that they are able to take full advantage of their gaming experience. Whether the choice is American Roulette, Blackjack or any one of the Casino Poker Games, guests are guaranteed that the rules of all the games match International Standards found in casinos all over the world.

In the Slots Area the multi-game slot machines provide over 100 different and exciting games.

Our pride is Automated Roulette, which can accommodate up to 16 players at the same time Automated Roulette is the perfect combination of a classic roulette, state of the art technology, player comfort, maximum security and elegant design. Players are not playing against each other, so they can cheer and interact among themselves in a joint effort to beat the ‘house’.

The sports bar is one of the premier venue in Kigali where guests are able to watch sports events from all over the world ont three large HD TV’s including one 60’’ screen with HD decoders. The seating area can accommodate up to 30 guests and is just the right size to create a great atmosphere for an enthusiastic crowd. Football fans simply love it! There are great deals during daily Happy Hours and freshly prepared food both add to the “SportZone Experience”.

Although consideration is always given to responsible gaming, the management of Casino Kigali takes great pride from the organisation of promotional events.

Every year the casino celebrates the traditional New Year and Chinese New Year, Diwali for our Indian guests, not to mention the Anniversary Party which attracts a high number of visitors in December.

Whether it’s a quiet evening sipping cocktails with a friend or enjoying the excitement of the gaming tables and slot machines, Casino Kigali has certainly earned the reputation of being one of the top entertainment venues in Rwanda.
