• Zimbabwe Casinos

    [ English ]

    The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the moment, so you could envision that there might be little desire for going to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. Actually, it appears to be operating the opposite way, with the awful economic conditions leading to a bigger ambition to wager, to try and find a quick win, a way out of the problems.

    For most of the people living on the meager local money, there are two common forms of betting, the state lotto and Zimbet. Just as with almost everywhere else on the planet, there is a state lotto where the odds of succeeding are remarkably tiny, but then the winnings are also surprisingly high. It’s been said by financial experts who study the subject that the majority do not purchase a card with a real expectation of winning. Zimbet is built on one of the domestic or the British soccer leagues and involves predicting the results of future games.

    Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other hand, pamper the exceedingly rich of the society and sightseers. Up till a short while ago, there was a incredibly substantial vacationing business, based on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The market woes and connected violence have carved into this market.

    Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and slot machines, and the Plumtree Casino, which has just the slot machine games. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only slot machines. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the two of which contain gaming tables, slot machines and video machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, both of which have gaming machines and tables.

    In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the previously talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a pools system), there is a total of 2 horse racing complexes in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

    Given that the economy has diminished by beyond forty percent in recent years and with the associated deprivation and violence that has arisen, it is not well-known how well the vacationing industry which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the near future. How many of the casinos will survive till conditions improve is basically unknown.
