Zimbabwe gambling dens

December 16th, 2021 Leave a comment Go to comments

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the current time, so you may imagine that there would be very little appetite for patronizing Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. Actually, it seems to be working the other way, with the awful market conditions creating a bigger ambition to play, to try and discover a quick win, a way out of the crisis.

For almost all of the people surviving on the tiny local wages, there are 2 popular styles of gaming, the state lotto and Zimbet. Just as with practically everywhere else on the globe, there is a state lotto where the odds of winning are extremely low, but then the jackpots are also surprisingly large. It’s been said by economists who study the concept that the lion’s share don’t buy a card with an actual expectation of hitting. Zimbet is based on one of the local or the British soccer divisions and involves determining the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other hand, pamper the very rich of the country and tourists. Until recently, there was a considerably big tourist industry, based on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The market woes and associated crime have cut into this trade.

Among Zimbabwe’s casinos, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and one armed bandits, and the Plumtree gambling den, which has only slots. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just one armed bandits. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the two of which have table games, slot machines and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the pair of which has gaming machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the previously 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.

Given that the economy has shrunk by more than 40% in the past few years and with the connected poverty and violence that has come about, it isn’t understood how healthy the sightseeing business which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the in the years to come. How many of the casinos will be alive until conditions improve is merely unknown.
