Zimbabwe gambling dens

[ English ]

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the current time, so you might imagine that there would be very little desire for supporting Zimbabwe’s casinos. In fact, it seems to be operating the opposite way, with the critical market conditions creating a higher eagerness to play, to try and discover a fast win, a way from the problems.

For most of the locals subsisting on the tiny local wages, there are 2 dominant styles of wagering, the state lotto and Zimbet. Just as with almost everywhere else on the globe, there is a state lottery where the probabilities of succeeding are extremely small, but then the winnings are also remarkably large. It’s been said by financial experts who study the situation that the lion’s share do not buy a card with an actual expectation of hitting. Zimbet is based on either the domestic or the UK football leagues and involves predicting the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other shoe, look after the very rich of the nation and sightseers. Up till a short while ago, there was a very substantial vacationing industry, based on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic woes and associated bloodshed have cut into this market.

Among Zimbabwe’s casinos, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five 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 just slot machines. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, both of which contain table games, one armed bandits and video poker 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 tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the aforestated talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a parimutuel betting system), there are a total of two horse racing tracks in the nation: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second metropolis) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the market has shrunk by more than 40 percent in recent years and with the associated poverty and violence that has come about, it is not known how healthy the tourist industry which is the foundation for Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the near future. How many of the casinos will carry on until things improve is basically not known.
