MEC for Limpopo Department of Economic Development, Environment and Tourism (LEDET) Thabo Mokone on Friday officially opening gambling facility Goldrush Bingo in Phalaborwa.

LEDET successfully licensed Bingo sites operating in the province, in towns such as Musina, Bochum, Tzaneen, Lephalale, Bela-Bela, Groblersdal and now Phalaborwa.

Mokone was accompanied by the Chief Executive of Limpopo Gambling Board Gregory Makoko and acting Head of Department Matodzi Rathumbu.

The Bingo sites contribute to both the local and provincial economy because they create much needed employment for women and youth in the area, as we continue to rebuild the economy.
