Zimbabwe Casinos

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the moment, so you may imagine that there would be very little appetite for patronizing Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. In fact, it seems to be functioning the opposite way around, with the crucial economic conditions leading to a bigger desire to gamble, to attempt to find a fast win, a way out of the situation.

For the majority of the locals living on the abysmal local money, there are 2 common styles of gaming, the state lottery and Zimbet. Just as with almost everywhere else in the world, there is a state lotto where the odds of winning are surprisingly low, but then the prizes are also unbelievably high. It’s been said by market analysts who understand the idea that the lion’s share do not purchase a ticket with the rational belief of winning. Zimbet is built on either the local or the UK soccer leagues and involves determining the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other shoe, cater to the incredibly rich of the society and travelers. Up till not long ago, there was a exceptionally substantial vacationing industry, based on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic woes and associated bloodshed have cut into this market.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and slots, and the Plumtree Casino, which has just the 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 pair of which contain gaming tables, one armed bandits and video 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 talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a pools system), there are a total of 2 horse racing tracks in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the market has shrunk by more than 40 percent in the past few years and with the associated poverty and crime that has resulted, it is not known how healthy the tourist industry which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the in the years to come. How many of the casinos will survive until things get better is basically not known.
