Zimbabwe Casinos

[ English ]

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the moment, so you might think that there might be very little appetite for going to Zimbabwe’s casinos. In fact, it appears to be operating the opposite way, with the desperate market circumstances leading to a higher desire to gamble, to attempt to locate a quick win, a way from the problems.

For the majority of the people subsisting on the abysmal local money, there are two common types of gaming, the national lottery and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else in the world, there is a state lottery where the chances of profiting are surprisingly low, but then the prizes are also very high. It’s been said by financial experts who look at the concept that the lion’s share do not purchase a card with the rational assumption of winning. Zimbet is built on one of the local or the British football leagues and involves predicting the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other hand, pander to the incredibly rich of the nation and travelers. Up till not long ago, there was a extremely substantial sightseeing business, built on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The economic woes and connected crime have carved 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 slot machines, and the Plumtree gambling den, which has just the slots. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only slot machines. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the pair of which contain 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 offer gaming machines and tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the above talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a parimutuel betting system), there are a total of two horse racing complexes in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd metropolis) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the market has shrunk by more than 40% in the past few years and with the connected poverty and crime that has arisen, it is not well-known how healthy the vacationing industry which is the foundation for Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the near future. How many of them will survive until conditions improve is simply unknown.
