Zimbabwe gambling halls

[ English ]

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the current time, so you could imagine that there would be little appetite for patronizing Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. Actually, it appears to be functioning the opposite way, with the atrocious market conditions leading to a larger desire to wager, to try and find a fast win, a way from the difficulty.

For nearly all of the citizens subsisting on the abysmal local earnings, there are two established forms of betting, the national lottery and Zimbet. Just as with most everywhere else in the world, there is a national lottery where the chances of hitting are extremely small, but then the jackpots are also remarkably large. It’s been said by financial experts who look at the concept that most do not buy a card with a real expectation of winning. Zimbet is centered on either the domestic or the British soccer divisions and involves predicting the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other shoe, look after the considerably rich of the country and vacationers. Up till a short while ago, there was a incredibly substantial sightseeing industry, built on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The market collapse and associated bloodshed have carved into this market.

Among Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and slot machines, and the Plumtree Casino, 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 two of which contain gaming tables, slots and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, both of which has video poker machines and table games.

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

Since the market has diminished by more than 40% in the past few years and with the connected poverty and crime that has come to pass, it is not known how healthy the tourist industry which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the near future. How many of them will carry through till things improve is simply not known.
