Zimbabwe Casinos

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the moment, so you could imagine that there might be very little desire for going to Zimbabwe’s casinos. In fact, it appears to be functioning the opposite way, with the desperate market conditions creating a higher desire to play, to attempt to discover a fast win, a way from the problems.

For most of the locals surviving on the abysmal local wages, there are 2 common types of gambling, the state lottery and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else on the planet, there is a state lotto where the probabilities of profiting are remarkably small, but then the jackpots are also unbelievably high. It’s been said by economists who understand the situation that the majority don’t purchase a card with the rational belief of winning. Zimbet is based on one of the domestic or the British football leagues and involves predicting the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other hand, cater to the considerably rich of the state and travelers. Up until recently, there was a considerably large sightseeing industry, built on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The market collapse and connected violence have cut into this trade.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and one armed bandits, and the Plumtree Casino, which has just the slot machine games. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only slots. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, both of which have table games, slot machines and video machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the two of which have slot machines and table games.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls and the previously talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a parimutuel betting system), there are 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 economy has deflated by beyond 40% in the past few years and with the associated deprivation and violence that has arisen, it is not known how healthy the sightseeing industry which is the foundation for Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the next few years. How many of them will still be around until things improve is merely not known.
