Zimbabwe Casinos

[ English ]

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the moment, so you might imagine that there might be little affinity for patronizing Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. Actually, it appears to be functioning the other way around, with the awful market circumstances leading to a greater desire to wager, to try and locate a quick win, a way out of the situation.

For most of the locals surviving on the tiny nearby money, there are 2 common styles of wagering, the national lotto and Zimbet. Just as with almost everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lotto where the odds of hitting are remarkably tiny, but then the prizes are also unbelievably high. It’s been said by economists who understand the situation that many do not buy a card with a real belief of profiting. Zimbet is founded on one of the national or the British football divisions and involves determining the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other shoe, pamper the considerably rich of the society and travelers. Up till a short time ago, there was a extremely big tourist business, centered on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The market woes and connected crime have cut into this market.

Among Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and slots, and the Plumtree Casino, which has only slots. 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, the two of which have gaming tables, slot machines and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the pair of which have gaming machines and tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the previously mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a parimutuel betting system), there are also two horse racing tracks in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd municipality) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the market has deflated by beyond forty percent in the past few years and with the associated poverty and crime that has resulted, it is not well-known how well the sightseeing business which funds Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the near future. How many of them will still be around until things get better is simply unknown.
