Zimbabwe Casinos

[ English ]

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the current time, so you may think that there might be little affinity for supporting Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. Actually, it seems to be working the opposite way, with the desperate market conditions leading to a bigger eagerness to play, to try and find a quick win, a way out of the problems.

For nearly all of the locals living on the abysmal local money, there are two common styles of betting, the national lottery and Zimbet. Just as with practically everywhere else on the planet, there is a national lottery where the odds of winning are surprisingly low, but then the prizes are also remarkably large. It’s been said by financial experts who look at the situation that the majority do not buy a ticket with the rational belief of winning. Zimbet is built on either the local or the English football divisions and involves predicting the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other foot, mollycoddle the incredibly rich of the society and vacationers. Up till a short time ago, there was a very large vacationing industry, built on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The economic woes and associated bloodshed have carved into this trade.

Among Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, 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 Casino, which has just the slots. 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, the pair of which contain gaming tables, slots and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, both of which offer gaming machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

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

Seeing as that the market has contracted by more than 40 percent in recent years and with the connected poverty and crime that has arisen, it is not understood how well the vacationing industry which is the foundation for Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the next few years. How many of the casinos will be alive until things get better is simply unknown.
