Zimbabwe gambling halls

[ English ]

The act of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the moment, so you might think that there would be very little affinity for visiting Zimbabwe’s casinos. In fact, it seems to be working the opposite way around, with the critical market conditions leading to a larger desire to gamble, to attempt to discover a fast win, a way out of the problems.

For almost all of the people subsisting on the tiny local money, there are two common types of gaming, the national lottery and Zimbet. As with most everywhere else on the globe, there is a state lottery where the chances of winning are remarkably tiny, but then the jackpots are also extremely high. It’s been said by market analysts who look at the idea that the lion’s share don’t buy a card with an actual expectation of profiting. Zimbet is centered on either the domestic or the United Kingston soccer leagues and involves determining the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other hand, look after the considerably rich of the state and vacationers. Until recently, there was a very substantial vacationing business, founded on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic collapse and connected conflict have cut into this trade.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and one armed bandits, and the Plumtree Casino, which has only slot machines. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only one armed bandits. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the pair of which offer table games, slots and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the pair of which has slot machines and tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the aforementioned mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a parimutuel betting system), there are also 2 horse racing tracks in the nation: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Given that the economy has shrunk by beyond 40 percent in the past few years and with the associated deprivation and crime that has cropped up, it is not well-known how healthy the tourist business which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the near future. How many of the casinos will still be around until things get better is simply unknown.
