Zimbabwe gambling halls

October 18th, 2015 Leave a comment Go to comments

The act of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the moment, so you might envision that there would be little affinity for going to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. In fact, it appears to be working the other way, with the desperate market circumstances leading to a larger desire to wager, to attempt to locate a fast win, a way out of the difficulty.

For almost all of the citizens surviving on the tiny local wages, there are 2 established types of gambling, the national lottery and Zimbet. Just as with almost everywhere else in the world, there is a national lottery where the odds of profiting are surprisingly low, but then the jackpots are also extremely high. It’s been said by market analysts who look at the situation that most don’t buy a card with a real expectation of winning. Zimbet is based on one of the national or the British soccer leagues and involves predicting the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other shoe, look after the incredibly rich of the state and travelers. Up until a short time ago, there was a very large sightseeing industry, centered on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The market woes and connected bloodshed have carved into this trade.

Among Zimbabwe’s casinos, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and one armed bandits, and the Plumtree gambling den, which has only slot machines. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only one armed bandits. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the two of which offer gaming tables, slots and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, each of which have video poker machines and tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls and the aforestated mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a parimutuel betting system), there are also 2 horse racing complexes in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the economy has deflated by more than forty percent in recent years and with the connected poverty and bloodshed that has come to pass, it isn’t understood how healthy the tourist industry which supports 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.
