Zimbabwe gambling halls

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the moment, so you could envision that there would be little appetite for visiting Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. In reality, it appears to be working the other way around, with the awful economic conditions creating a higher desire to bet, to try and locate a quick win, a way out of the crisis.

For most of the citizens subsisting on the meager local money, there are 2 common types of wagering, the national lotto and Zimbet. Just as with most everywhere else on the planet, there is a state lottery where the probabilities of winning are unbelievably low, but then the prizes are also remarkably big. It’s been said by economists who study the idea that many don’t buy a card with a real belief of hitting. Zimbet is based on one of the domestic or the British soccer divisions and involves predicting the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other hand, cater to the very rich of the state and sightseers. Up till not long ago, there was a considerably large sightseeing business, centered on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The market anxiety and connected crime have carved into this market.

Among Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, 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 just the slot machines. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just one armed bandits. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the two of which contain gaming tables, one armed bandits and video 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 blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the aforementioned talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a pools system), there are a total of 2 horse racing tracks in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the market has deflated by more than 40 percent in the past few years and with the associated poverty and violence that has come about, it isn’t well-known how well the sightseeing industry which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the near future. How many of them will still be around till conditions improve is merely not known.
