Zimbabwe Casinos

[ English ]

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the moment, so you could envision that there might be little desire for going to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. In reality, it seems to be working the opposite way, with the desperate economic conditions leading to a larger desire to bet, to try and discover a fast win, a way from the difficulty.

For many of the citizens surviving on the abysmal local money, there are two dominant types of wagering, the national lottery and Zimbet. Just as with most everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lottery where the odds of profiting are surprisingly small, but then the prizes are also very high. It’s been said by market analysts who study the subject that the lion’s share do not purchase a card with an actual assumption of winning. Zimbet is based on one of the domestic or the English football divisions and involves predicting the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other foot, pamper the considerably rich of the society and travelers. Up until not long ago, there was a exceptionally big tourist industry, centered on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The market anxiety and associated conflict have cut into this trade.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and slot machines, and the Plumtree gambling den, which has just the slot machines. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just one armed bandits. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, both of which have table games, one armed bandits and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the two of which has slot machines and table games.

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

Since the market has deflated by beyond 40 percent in recent years and with the connected poverty and violence that has come to pass, it is not well-known how well the vacationing business which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the near future. How many of the casinos will still be around till things improve is merely unknown.
