Zimbabwe Casinos

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the moment, so you may imagine that there might be little desire for visiting Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. Actually, it appears to be functioning the other way around, with the atrocious market conditions leading to a bigger eagerness to play, to try and locate a fast win, a way out of the crisis.

For almost all of the citizens living on the meager nearby wages, there are 2 established types of betting, the national lotto and Zimbet. Just as with practically everywhere else on the planet, there is a national lottery where the odds of winning are extremely tiny, but then the prizes are also very large. It’s been said by market analysts who study the idea that many don’t buy a ticket with an actual expectation of hitting. Zimbet is founded on either the local or the United Kingston soccer divisions and involves determining the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other shoe, mollycoddle the incredibly rich of the state and travelers. Up till not long ago, there was a exceptionally substantial sightseeing industry, centered on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic collapse and associated bloodshed have cut into this market.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s casinos, there are two 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 just slot machines. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, both of which offer 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, each of which offer gaming machines and tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the aforementioned mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a parimutuel betting system), there are a total of two horse racing complexes in the nation: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd metropolis) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Given that the market has shrunk by more than 40% in the past few years and with the connected deprivation and conflict that has resulted, it is not known how well the sightseeing industry which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the in the years to come. How many of the casinos will be alive till things get better is basically not known.
