Zimbabwe Casinos

[ English | Deutsch | Español | Français | Italiano ]

The act of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the moment, so you might think that there would be very little affinity for going to Zimbabwe’s casinos. Actually, it seems to be working the other way around, with the awful market circumstances creating a bigger ambition to gamble, to attempt to find a quick win, a way from the difficulty.

For many of the citizens surviving on the abysmal local money, there are 2 dominant styles of wagering, the state lottery and Zimbet. As with most everywhere else on the planet, there is a state lottery where the probabilities of hitting are unbelievably small, but then the jackpots are also unbelievably large. It’s been said by economists who understand the concept that most don’t purchase a ticket with an actual belief of winning. Zimbet is founded on either the national or the English soccer leagues and involves predicting the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other foot, pander to the considerably rich of the society and travelers. Until recently, there was a incredibly substantial sightseeing business, founded on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The market woes and associated bloodshed have cut into this trade.

Among Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and slot machines, and the Plumtree gambling den, which has just the slots. 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, the pair of which offer gaming tables, slots and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, each of which have video poker machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls and the previously talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a pools system), there is a total of two horse racing tracks in the nation: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Given that the market has contracted by beyond forty percent in the past few years and with the connected poverty and crime that has cropped up, it isn’t well-known how healthy the vacationing business which is the foundation for Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the in the years to come. How many of them will still be around till things get better is merely unknown.
