Mauritian rupees (MUR) are used as the official currency of Mauritius, a beautiful island country in the Indian Ocean. The nation's central bank, the Bank of Mauritius, issues banknotes in denominations ranging from 25 to 2,000 rupees, as well as coins with values from 5 cents to 20 rupees. The MUR was established as the official Mauritian currency unit in 1876 and released into circulation in 1877, replacing several other currencies.
A small number of online gambling sites, which include live casinos, accept Mauritian rupees. Players from the island nation can enjoy popular live casino games and make their deposits and withdrawals using Mauritian currency.
