Zimbabwe Casinos

[ English | Deutsch | Español | Français | Italiano ]

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the moment, so you might think that there would be very little appetite for patronizing Zimbabwe’s casinos. In fact, it seems to be functioning the opposite way around, with the crucial market circumstances leading to a bigger desire to wager, to try and find a quick win, a way from the problems.

For almost all of the locals living on the tiny local wages, there are 2 popular types of gambling, the national lottery and Zimbet. As with most everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lotto where the odds of profiting are surprisingly small, but then the winnings are also surprisingly high. It’s been said by financial experts who study the situation that many don’t purchase a card with a real belief of winning. Zimbet is centered on one of the domestic or the English soccer leagues and involves determining the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other foot, pamper the astonishingly rich of the state and vacationers. Until not long ago, there was a extremely big vacationing industry, based on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The economic collapse and associated conflict have carved into this market.

Among Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and one armed bandits, and the Plumtree Casino, which has only slot machine games. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only slots. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the pair of which contain table games, one armed bandits and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the two of which offer video poker machines and table games.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the previously mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a pools system), there is a total of two horse racing tracks in the nation: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second metropolis) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the market has contracted by beyond 40 percent in recent years and with the associated deprivation and violence that has come about, it is not understood how well the vacationing industry which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the near future. How many of them will still be around till conditions improve is merely unknown.
