Zimbabwe gambling halls

[ English ]

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the current time, so you may imagine that there would be very little affinity for visiting Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. Actually, it appears to be working the other way around, with the desperate market conditions leading to a bigger eagerness to bet, to attempt to locate a quick win, a way out of the situation.

For many of the people surviving on the tiny nearby money, there are two popular forms of wagering, the national lotto and Zimbet. Just as with almost everywhere else in the world, there is a state lotto where the chances of winning are extremely small, but then the winnings are also surprisingly high. It’s been said by financial experts who understand the concept that the majority don’t purchase a card with an actual expectation of profiting. Zimbet is centered on either the local or the English football divisions and involves determining the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other hand, mollycoddle the very rich of the state and travelers. Until a short time ago, there was a incredibly big tourist industry, centered on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The market woes and associated crime have cut into this trade.

Among Zimbabwe’s casinos, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and one armed bandits, and the Plumtree gambling den, which has just the slot machines. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just slot machines. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the pair 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, each of which offer gaming machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls and the above mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a parimutuel betting system), there is a total of two horse racing complexes in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second metropolis) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the market has deflated by more than 40 percent in recent years and with the associated deprivation and violence that has cropped up, it is not understood how healthy the vacationing business which funds Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the near future. How many of the casinos will carry through until conditions get better is basically not known.
