Zimbabwe gambling halls

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the moment, so you could imagine that there might be little appetite for supporting Zimbabwe’s casinos. Actually, it seems to be operating the other way around, with the awful economic conditions leading to a greater desire to gamble, to try and find a fast win, a way out of the crisis.

For many of the citizens living on the abysmal local earnings, there are 2 popular styles of wagering, the state lottery and Zimbet. Just as with practically everywhere else in the world, there is a state lotto where the odds of succeeding are unbelievably tiny, but then the winnings are also surprisingly large. It’s been said by financial experts who look at the situation that most don’t buy a ticket with a real assumption of profiting. Zimbet is based on either the national or the British football leagues and involves predicting the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other hand, pamper the considerably rich of the country and travelers. Up until a short while ago, there was a exceptionally big sightseeing business, built on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic woes and connected conflict have cut into this market.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, 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 gambling den, which has only slots. 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, the pair of which have table games, slot machines 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 have video poker machines and table games.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls and the aforestated mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a pools system), there are also two horse racing complexes in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd municipality) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the economy has deflated by more than 40 percent in recent years and with the associated deprivation and conflict that has arisen, it isn’t well-known how healthy the sightseeing industry which funds Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the next few years. How many of them will carry on until conditions improve is merely not known.
