Zimbabwe Casinos

[ English ]

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the current time, so you could think that there would be little desire for patronizing Zimbabwe’s casinos. Actually, it appears to be operating the opposite way around, with the crucial market circumstances creating a higher eagerness to bet, to try and find a quick win, a way from the problems.

For most of the people surviving on the meager nearby money, there are two established styles of wagering, the national lotto and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else in the world, there is a state lotto where the chances of winning are unbelievably low, but then the jackpots are also extremely large. It’s been said by financial experts who understand the concept that the lion’s share don’t buy a ticket with a real assumption of profiting. Zimbet is founded on one of the national or the UK soccer leagues and involves determining the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other foot, pamper the very rich of the country and tourists. Until a short time ago, there was a very big sightseeing business, centered on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The economic woes and associated bloodshed have cut into this trade.

Among Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and one armed bandits, and the Plumtree gambling hall, which has only slots. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just slots. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, both of which contain table games, slots and video machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, each of which offer video poker machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the previously mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a parimutuel betting system), there are also two horse racing complexes in the nation: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the market has diminished by beyond 40 percent in the past few years and with the associated deprivation and crime that has arisen, it is not understood how well the tourist industry which funds Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the near future. How many of the casinos will carry on till conditions improve is simply unknown.
