Zimbabwe Casinos

January 18th, 2016 Leave a comment Go to comments

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the current time, so you may envision that there would be very little affinity for going to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. In fact, it appears to be working the opposite way, with the atrocious economic conditions creating a greater desire to bet, to try and find a quick win, a way out of the problems.

For nearly all of the locals surviving on the abysmal local money, there are two established styles of gaming, the state lottery and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lottery where the odds of succeeding are unbelievably tiny, but then the jackpots are also surprisingly big. It’s been said by economists who study the concept that the lion’s share don’t purchase a ticket with the rational assumption of winning. Zimbet is founded on either the local or the United Kingston football divisions and involves predicting the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other foot, cater to the very rich of the nation and vacationers. Up until a short time ago, there was a considerably large tourist industry, built on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The market anxiety and associated violence have carved into this market.

Among Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, 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 slots. 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 two of which contain table games, slots and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the pair of which have video poker machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

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

Seeing as that the market has contracted by more than 40 percent in the past few years and with the associated deprivation and violence that has arisen, it isn’t well-known how healthy the sightseeing industry which is the foundation for Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the near future. How many of the casinos will carry through until things get better is simply unknown.
