Zimbabwe Casinos

[ English | Deutsch | Español | Français | Italiano ]

The act of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the current time, so you may envision that there might be very little desire for going to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. In reality, it appears to be operating the opposite way, with the atrocious market circumstances leading to a bigger ambition to wager, to attempt to find a quick win, a way out of the problems.

For nearly all of the citizens surviving on the tiny nearby earnings, there are two dominant forms of betting, the national lotto and Zimbet. As with practically everywhere else on the globe, there is a state lottery where the probabilities of winning are remarkably tiny, but then the winnings are also unbelievably high. It’s been said by economists who study the concept that many don’t purchase a ticket with a real belief of profiting. Zimbet is centered on one of the local or the British football divisions and involves determining the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other shoe, mollycoddle the very rich of the state and sightseeers. Up till not long ago, there was a considerably big sightseeing business, centered on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The economic woes and connected crime have carved into this market.

Among Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, there are 2 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 Centre in Kariba also has only slot machines. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the two of which have gaming tables, slots and video machines, and Victoria Falls has 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 gambling halls and the aforementioned mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a pools system), there are a total of two horse racing tracks in the nation: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Given that the economy has contracted by more than 40%in the past few years and with the associated poverty and conflict that has come to pass, it is not known how well the vacationing industry which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the next few years. How many of the casinos will be alive until conditions improve is simply not known.
