Zimbabwe gambling halls

[ English | Deutsch | Español | Français | Italiano ]

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the current time, so you may envision that there would be very little appetite for visiting Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. Actually, it appears to be working the other way around, with the atrocious market circumstances leading to a bigger eagerness to play, to attempt to locate a fast win, a way from the situation.

For the majority of the locals living on the meager nearby money, there are two common styles of betting, the national lotto and Zimbet. As with most everywhere else on the planet, there is a national lottery where the chances of winning are unbelievably small, but then the jackpots are also unbelievably big. It’s been said by financial experts who study the concept that most do not buy a card with the rational assumption of winning. Zimbet is centered on one of the domestic or the UK football leagues and involves determining the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other foot, mollycoddle the exceedingly rich of the nation and tourists. Up till recently, there was a considerably large tourist industry, based on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The market collapse and connected crime have carved into this trade.

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 gambling den, which has just the slot machines. 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 offer table games, slots and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the pair of which have gaming machines and tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the aforementioned mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a parimutuel betting system), there is a total of 2 horse racing tracks in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second municipality) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Given that the market has diminished by more than 40% in the past few years and with the connected poverty and conflict that has come about, it is not well-known how well the tourist business which funds Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the in the years to come. How many of them will still be around until conditions improve is merely not known.
