Zimbabwe Casinos

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the moment, so you may think that there might be little desire for patronizing Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. In reality, it seems to be functioning the other way, with the atrocious market conditions leading to a higher ambition to play, to attempt to locate a quick win, a way from the crisis.

For the majority of the people living on the tiny nearby wages, there are 2 dominant types of gaming, the national lottery and Zimbet. Just as with almost everywhere else on the planet, there is a national lottery where the probabilities of profiting are remarkably low, but then the jackpots are also unbelievably large. It’s been said by economists who study the situation that most do not purchase a ticket with an actual assumption of profiting. Zimbet is based on either the domestic or the United Kingston soccer leagues and involves predicting the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other hand, look after the very rich of the nation and sightseers. Up till a short while ago, there was a very big tourist industry, founded on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The market anxiety and associated 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 slot machines, and the Plumtree gambling den, which has just the slot machines. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just one armed bandits. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the pair of which offer table games, one armed bandits and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the pair of which has gaming machines and table games.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the above mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a pools system), there are a total of two horse racing complexes in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Given that the market has contracted by beyond forty percent in recent years and with the associated deprivation and crime that has resulted, it is not known how healthy the vacationing industry which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the near future. How many of them will still be around until conditions improve is merely not known.
