Zimbabwe Casinos

[ English ]

The act of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the moment, so you might think that there might be very little appetite for supporting Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. In fact, it appears to be working the other way, with the awful market circumstances leading to a bigger eagerness to bet, to attempt to discover a quick win, a way from the crisis.

For nearly all of the citizens subsisting on the abysmal local wages, there are 2 established styles of betting, the national lotto and Zimbet. As with practically everywhere else on the planet, there is a state lottery where the chances of hitting are extremely small, but then the prizes are also remarkably large. It’s been said by economists who understand the situation that most do not purchase a card with the rational belief of hitting. Zimbet is centered on either the national or the United Kingston soccer leagues and involves determining the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other hand, look after the extremely rich of the nation and sightseers. Until not long ago, there was a very substantial tourist business, based on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The market collapse and connected conflict have carved into this trade.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and slots, and the Plumtree Casino, which has only slots. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only one armed bandits. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the pair of which have table games, one armed bandits and video 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 considerably like a pools system), there are a total of two horse racing tracks in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the economy has contracted by more than forty percent in recent years and with the connected deprivation and conflict that has arisen, it is not well-known how healthy the tourist industry which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the in the years to come. How many of the casinos will carry on till things get better is simply unknown.
