Zimbabwe gambling halls

March 21st, 2017 Leave a comment Go to comments

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the moment, so you may envision that there might be very little desire for going to Zimbabwe’s casinos. Actually, it appears to be working the opposite way around, with the awful market circumstances creating a bigger desire to play, to attempt to locate a fast win, a way out of the problems.

For the majority of the citizens subsisting on the abysmal nearby wages, there are 2 dominant styles of wagering, the state lottery and Zimbet. Just as with almost everywhere else on the planet, there is a national lotto where the probabilities of winning are remarkably tiny, but then the prizes are also remarkably big. It’s been said by financial experts who understand the situation that the majority don’t buy a ticket with the rational expectation of profiting. Zimbet is built on either the local or the United Kingston soccer leagues and involves determining the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other hand, pander to the incredibly rich of the state and vacationers. Until not long ago, there was a very substantial vacationing industry, founded on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The market collapse and connected violence 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 5 gaming tables and one armed bandits, and the Plumtree gambling den, which has only slot machine games. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only one armed bandits. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, both of which have 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 two of which have slot machines and tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the aforestated talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a parimutuel betting system), there is a total of 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 economy has contracted by more than 40 percent in the past few years and with the connected poverty and violence that has come to pass, it isn’t well-known how well the vacationing industry which funds Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the next few years. How many of the casinos will carry through until things improve is basically unknown.
