Zimbabwe gambling halls

[ English ]

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the moment, so you could think that there might be very little desire for going to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. In fact, it appears to be working the other way around, with the critical market conditions leading to a higher desire to bet, to attempt to locate a fast win, a way out of the crisis.

For most of the citizens living on the abysmal nearby wages, there are two common forms of gambling, the national lotto and Zimbet. As with practically everywhere else on the globe, there is a state lotto where the odds of hitting are remarkably low, but then the winnings are also extremely large. It’s been said by economists who understand the subject that the majority do not buy a ticket with an actual expectation of winning. Zimbet is based on one of the domestic or the United Kingston football leagues and involves determining the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other hand, mollycoddle the considerably rich of the country and vacationers. Up till a short time ago, there was a exceptionally substantial vacationing industry, built on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic anxiety and connected conflict 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 five gaming tables and slot machines, and the Plumtree gambling hall, which has only slots. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only slots. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the two of which have gaming tables, slots and video machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, each of which offer slot machines and table games.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the previously 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.

Since the market has deflated by more than 40% in recent years and with the connected poverty and bloodshed that has arisen, it isn’t known how healthy the vacationing business which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the next few years. How many of them will still be around till things get better is simply unknown.
