Zimbabwe Casinos

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the current time, so you could imagine that there would be little affinity for patronizing Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. In reality, it seems to be functioning the other way around, with the awful market circumstances creating a bigger eagerness to bet, to attempt to discover a fast win, a way out of the problems.

For many of the people surviving on the abysmal local wages, there are two popular styles of gambling, the national lottery and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else in the world, there is a state lottery where the chances of succeeding are extremely low, but then the jackpots are also very big. It’s been said by market analysts who understand the idea that many don’t purchase a ticket with the rational expectation of profiting. Zimbet is centered on either the domestic or the British football leagues and involves predicting the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other hand, cater to the considerably rich of the society and vacationers. Up till recently, there was a extremely large sightseeing business, based on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The market anxiety and associated conflict have carved into this trade.

Amongst 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 gambling den, which has just the slot machine games. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just slot machines. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the pair of which have table games, slots and video 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 halls and the aforestated alluded to lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a parimutuel betting system), there is a total of 2 horse racing complexes in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd 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 bloodshed that has cropped up, it is not understood how healthy the sightseeing industry which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the in the years to come. How many of them will still be around till conditions get better is basically unknown.
