Zimbabwe gambling dens

[ English ]

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the current time, so you could imagine that there would be little appetite for going to Zimbabwe’s casinos. In reality, it seems to be operating the opposite way around, with the awful market circumstances leading to a higher eagerness to bet, to attempt to find a quick win, a way out of the difficulty.

For the majority of the people surviving on the abysmal local money, there are two dominant forms of gambling, the state lotto and Zimbet. Just as with almost everywhere else on the planet, there is a state lottery where the probabilities of profiting are surprisingly low, but then the jackpots are also extremely high. It’s been said by financial experts who study the subject that most do not buy a ticket with the rational expectation of winning. Zimbet is centered on one of the local or the United Kingston football leagues and involves determining the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other shoe, pander to the incredibly rich of the nation and vacationers. Up until a short while ago, there was a exceptionally big vacationing industry, built on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The market anxiety and connected bloodshed have cut into this trade.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s casinos, there are two 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 only slots. 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 two of which offer table games, slot machines and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, both of which have gaming machines and tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the above alluded to lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a pools system), there is a total of 2 horse racing tracks in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the economy has diminished by beyond forty percent in the past few years and with the associated poverty and violence that has cropped up, it is not understood how well the vacationing industry which is the foundation for Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the next few years. How many of them will be alive until things improve is merely unknown.
