Zimbabwe Casinos

[ English ]

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the current time, so you could imagine that there might be little desire for patronizing Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. In fact, it appears to be working the opposite way, with the awful economic circumstances leading to a bigger desire to wager, to try and discover a quick win, a way out of the crisis.

For almost all of the people surviving on the abysmal local wages, there are two popular types of gaming, the state lottery and Zimbet. As with most everywhere else in the world, there is a state lotto where the odds of succeeding are remarkably tiny, but then the winnings are also very high. It’s been said by economists who understand the idea that most do not buy a ticket with a real assumption of winning. Zimbet is based on either the national or the United Kingston soccer divisions and involves determining the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other foot, pamper the astonishingly rich of the nation and travelers. Up until a short time ago, there was a exceptionally big tourist business, founded on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The market anxiety and associated conflict have carved into this trade.

Among Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and slot machines, and the Plumtree gambling hall, which has only slot machines. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just slot machines. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the pair of which contain 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, both of which have video poker machines and tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the aforestated talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a pools system), there are also two horse racing tracks in the nation: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second metropolis) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the economy has deflated by more than forty percent in the past few years and with the associated poverty and violence that has come to pass, it is not understood how healthy the vacationing business which funds Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the next few years. How many of the casinos will carry on till things get better is simply not known.
