Zimbabwe Casinos

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the moment, so you may imagine that there might be little affinity for going to Zimbabwe’s casinos. Actually, it appears to be functioning the opposite way around, with the desperate economic circumstances creating a greater desire to wager, to try and locate a fast win, a way out of the situation.

For the majority of the citizens living on the meager local earnings, there are 2 popular styles of betting, the national lottery and Zimbet. Just as with most everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lottery where the chances of winning are extremely tiny, but then the jackpots are also very high. It’s been said by financial experts who study the concept that many don’t buy a card with a real expectation of winning. Zimbet is centered on one of the local or the UK football leagues and involves determining the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other shoe, cater to the astonishingly rich of the country and sightseers. Up until recently, there was a exceptionally substantial vacationing industry, centered on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The economic woes and associated crime have cut into this market.

Among Zimbabwe’s casinos, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and slot machines, and the Plumtree gambling hall, which has only slots. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just one armed bandits. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, both of which have table games, slots and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the pair of which have video poker machines and tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the aforestated alluded to lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a pools system), there are a total of 2 horse racing tracks in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second municipality) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Given that the economy has shrunk by beyond forty percent in recent years and with the associated poverty and conflict that has resulted, it isn’t known how well the tourist business which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the near future. How many of the casinos will be alive till conditions get better is basically not known.
