Zimbabwe Casinos

March 16th, 2021 by Isabel Leave a reply »

The act of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the moment, so you may imagine that there might be very little affinity for going to Zimbabwe’s casinos. In reality, it appears to be working the opposite way, with the desperate market conditions leading to a bigger ambition to play, to try and locate a quick win, a way out of the difficulty.

For most of the people subsisting on the meager nearby wages, there are two common forms of gaming, the state lottery and Zimbet. Just as with most everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lotto where the probabilities of hitting are extremely tiny, but then the jackpots are also surprisingly large. It’s been said by financial experts who understand the situation that most do not buy a ticket with an actual belief of winning. Zimbet is based on either the domestic or the English football divisions and involves predicting the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other foot, pamper the incredibly rich of the nation and travelers. Up until a short while ago, there was a considerably big sightseeing industry, founded on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The market woes and associated violence have carved into this trade.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and slot machines, and the Plumtree gambling hall, which has only slot machine games. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just one armed bandits. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, both of which contain table games, slots and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, both of which have slot machines and tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls and the aforementioned alluded to 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 metropolis) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the market has contracted by beyond 40% in the past few years and with the connected deprivation and crime that has resulted, it isn’t well-known how well the tourist business which supports Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the in the years to come. How many of them will carry through till things get better is merely unknown.
