Zimbabwe Casinos

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the moment, so you may envision that there might be little desire for supporting Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. Actually, it seems to be operating the other way, with the critical economic conditions leading to a greater ambition to play, to attempt to discover a quick win, a way out of the situation.

For many of the citizens surviving on the tiny local wages, there are 2 popular styles of gambling, the national lottery and Zimbet. As with practically everywhere else on the globe, there is a state lotto where the probabilities of profiting are unbelievably tiny, but then the jackpots are also very high. It’s been said by economists who understand the concept that many don’t buy a card with a real expectation of hitting. Zimbet is based on one of the domestic or the UK soccer divisions and involves predicting the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other foot, mollycoddle the considerably rich of the state and vacationers. Up till not long ago, there was a considerably big tourist industry, centered on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The market collapse and connected conflict have cut into this trade.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, there are two 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 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, the two of which offer table games, slot machines and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, each of which have slot machines and table games.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the above alluded to lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a parimutuel betting system), there are also two horse racing tracks in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the economy has contracted by beyond 40 percent in the past few years and with the associated deprivation and crime that has cropped up, it isn’t well-known how well the tourist industry which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the near future. How many of them will carry on till conditions improve is simply unknown.
