Zimbabwe gambling halls

[ English ]

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the moment, so you could envision that there might be very little appetite for visiting Zimbabwe’s casinos. In reality, it appears to be operating the opposite way around, with the crucial economic conditions leading to a larger ambition to bet, to try and find a quick win, a way out of the difficulty.

For many of the locals living on the tiny local wages, there are 2 common styles of wagering, the state lottery and Zimbet. Just as with almost everywhere else on the planet, there is a state lotto where the chances of succeeding are remarkably small, but then the prizes are also remarkably large. It’s been said by financial experts who look at the concept that most don’t purchase a ticket with a real belief of hitting. Zimbet is centered on either the national or the UK football leagues and involves determining the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other hand, pamper the astonishingly rich of the country and vacationers. Up till a short while ago, there was a very large tourist business, based on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic anxiety and associated bloodshed have carved into this market.

Among Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and one armed bandits, and the Plumtree gambling den, which has just the slot machines. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just slot machines. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, both of which offer table games, slot machines and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the two of which offer gaming machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the above talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a pools system), there are also 2 horse racing tracks in the nation: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd municipality) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Given that the market has deflated by more than 40 percent in recent years and with the connected deprivation and conflict that has arisen, it isn’t well-known how well the vacationing business which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the in the years to come. How many of the casinos will survive until things get better is basically not known.
