Zimbabwe Casinos

February 27th, 2016 Leave a comment Go to comments

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the moment, so you may imagine that there would be little desire for going to Zimbabwe’s casinos. In fact, it seems to be working the other way, with the atrocious economic conditions creating a bigger ambition to gamble, to attempt to discover a quick win, a way out of the difficulty.

For nearly all of the locals subsisting on the meager nearby earnings, there are two dominant styles of gambling, the state lotto and Zimbet. Just as with practically everywhere else on the planet, there is a national lottery where the chances of winning are surprisingly low, but then the jackpots are also surprisingly high. It’s been said by market analysts who look at the subject that most don’t buy a card with the rational belief of profiting. Zimbet is centered on one of the domestic or the English football leagues and involves determining the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other foot, pamper the exceedingly rich of the country and sightseers. Until a short time ago, there was a incredibly substantial vacationing industry, based on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The economic woes and associated bloodshed have carved into this market.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s casinos, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and slots, and the Plumtree gambling hall, which has only slots. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only slots. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the two of which contain table games, one armed bandits and video machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, both of which has video poker machines and table games.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls and the above alluded to lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a pools system), there are also 2 horse racing tracks in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd municipality) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the market has shrunk by beyond 40 percent in recent years and with the associated poverty and violence that has resulted, it is not understood how healthy the sightseeing industry which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the next few years. How many of the casinos will still be around until conditions improve is merely unknown.
