Zimbabwe gambling halls

October 22nd, 2020 Leave a comment Go to comments

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the moment, so you could think that there might be little affinity for patronizing Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. In reality, it appears to be operating the opposite way around, with the desperate market conditions creating a bigger desire to wager, to attempt to locate a fast win, a way out of the crisis.

For many of the citizens surviving on the meager local money, there are 2 dominant styles of gaming, the national lotto and Zimbet. As with practically everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lottery where the odds of profiting are remarkably low, but then the winnings are also very high. It’s been said by economists who study the situation that many do not buy a ticket with a real expectation of profiting. Zimbet is founded on one of the national or the English football divisions and involves predicting the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other shoe, cater to the incredibly rich of the society and tourists. Until a short time ago, there was a exceptionally large sightseeing business, built on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic anxiety and associated bloodshed have carved into this market.

Among Zimbabwe’s casinos, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and slot machines, and the Plumtree Casino, which has only slots. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just slots. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the pair of which contain gaming tables, 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 table games.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the above talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a pools system), there are a total of 2 horse racing complexes in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the market has shrunk by beyond 40% in recent years and with the associated deprivation and crime that has come about, it isn’t understood how well the vacationing business which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the in the years to come. How many of the casinos will survive until conditions improve is basically unknown.
