Zimbabwe Casinos

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the current time, so you might imagine that there would be very little appetite for visiting Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. Actually, it seems to be working the opposite way, with the awful economic circumstances leading to a larger desire to play, to try and locate a quick win, a way from the difficulty.

For almost all of the locals subsisting on the abysmal nearby money, there are 2 popular types of wagering, the state lottery and Zimbet. As with most everywhere else on the planet, there is a state lotto where the chances of succeeding are extremely tiny, but then the winnings are also unbelievably high. It’s been said by financial experts who look at the concept that many don’t buy a ticket with a real belief of winning. Zimbet is built on one of the domestic or the English soccer divisions and involves predicting the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other shoe, pamper the extremely rich of the country and travelers. Up till not long ago, there was a extremely large tourist industry, built on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The market collapse and associated crime have carved into this trade.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and slots, and the Plumtree Casino, which has only slot machines. 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 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, the pair of which have video poker machines and table games.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls and the aforementioned talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a parimutuel betting system), there is a total of 2 horse racing tracks in the country: 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 40 percent in the past few years and with the connected poverty and violence that has come about, it isn’t well-known how healthy the tourist business which supports Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the near future. How many of the casinos will be alive till things get better is simply unknown.
