• Zimbabwe gambling halls

    The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the moment, so you could imagine that there might be little affinity for patronizing Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. Actually, it seems to be functioning the opposite way around, with the atrocious economic circumstances leading to a greater desire to gamble, to try and locate a quick win, a way out of the difficulty.

    For many of the citizens subsisting on the meager nearby wages, there are 2 dominant types of wagering, the state lotto and Zimbet. As with practically everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lotto where the probabilities of hitting are surprisingly low, but then the jackpots are also extremely big. It’s been said by market analysts who look at the idea that the lion’s share don’t purchase a card with a real expectation of winning. Zimbet is built on either the domestic or the English football divisions and involves predicting the results of future games.

    Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other shoe, look after the exceedingly rich of the nation and travelers. Up till not long ago, there was a very substantial sightseeing business, centered on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic collapse and connected bloodshed 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 one armed bandits, and the Plumtree Casino, which has only slot machine games. 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 video poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, both of which have video poker machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

    In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the previously alluded to lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a parimutuel betting system), there are a total of two horse racing complexes in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd metropolis) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

    Since the market has contracted by more than 40% in recent years and with the associated poverty and conflict that has come about, it is not well-known how healthy the sightseeing business which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the near future. How many of them will carry through until things get better is simply not known.
