Zimbabwe Casinos

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the moment, so you could envision that there might be very little affinity for patronizing Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. Actually, it seems to be working the other way, with the atrocious market conditions leading to a bigger eagerness to wager, to attempt to locate a quick win, a way out of the situation.

For almost all of the locals subsisting on the meager nearby money, there are 2 dominant styles of gaming, the national lottery and Zimbet. As with most everywhere else in the world, there is a national lottery where the chances of winning are extremely tiny, but then the winnings are also surprisingly large. It’s been said by market analysts who understand the concept that the majority do not purchase a card with the rational assumption of winning. Zimbet is centered on either the local or the UK football leagues and involves predicting the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other shoe, pander to the incredibly rich of the state and vacationers. Up till a short while ago, there was a incredibly large sightseeing business, founded on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The market woes and associated violence have carved into this trade.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and slots, and the Plumtree gambling den, which has just the slot machines. 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 offer table games, slots 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 offer slot machines and table games.

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

Given that the market has contracted by more than forty percent in recent years and with the connected deprivation and violence that has arisen, it is not known how well the tourist business which funds Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the next few years. How many of the casinos will carry through until things get better is simply unknown.
