Zimbabwe gambling halls

[ English ]

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the moment, so you could think that there might be very little desire for patronizing Zimbabwe’s casinos. Actually, it appears to be functioning the other way, with the critical market conditions creating a bigger desire to bet, to attempt to find a quick win, a way from the crisis.

For many of the people surviving on the abysmal local money, there are 2 dominant forms of wagering, the state lottery and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lotto where the chances of hitting are remarkably low, but then the winnings are also remarkably large. It’s been said by financial experts who study the concept that most do not purchase a ticket with an actual belief of winning. Zimbet is centered on one of the national or the English soccer leagues and involves predicting the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other hand, mollycoddle the considerably rich of the state and travelers. Up until a short time ago, there was a incredibly large vacationing business, built on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The market collapse and connected bloodshed have carved into this trade.

Among Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and one armed bandits, and the Plumtree gambling hall, which has only slot machines. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just slot machines. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the pair of which offer table games, slot machines and video machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, each of which has slot machines and tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the aforementioned talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a pools system), there are also 2 horse racing tracks in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the market has deflated by more than 40% in the past few years and with the associated poverty and violence that has arisen, it is not known how healthy the vacationing business which funds Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the near future. How many of the casinos will be alive till conditions improve is simply not known.
