Zimbabwe Casinos

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the moment, so you could think that there might be little affinity for supporting Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. In fact, it seems to be working the other way around, with the critical economic conditions creating a larger desire to bet, to attempt to locate a quick win, a way out of the crisis.

For most of the people surviving on the meager local money, there are 2 dominant types of gambling, the national lotto and Zimbet. Just as with practically everywhere else in the world, there is a national lottery where the chances of profiting are remarkably low, but then the jackpots are also very high. It’s been said by financial experts who study the situation that the lion’s share don’t purchase a card with a real expectation of profiting. Zimbet is founded on either the domestic or the English football divisions and involves determining the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other foot, cater to the astonishingly rich of the society and tourists. Up till a short while ago, there was a exceptionally substantial tourist business, based on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The market collapse and associated crime have cut into this market.

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

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the previously alluded to lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a pools system), there are also two horse racing tracks in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Given that the market has contracted by beyond forty percent in recent years and with the connected poverty and violence that has resulted, it isn’t known how healthy the sightseeing industry which is the foundation for Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the near future. How many of the casinos will survive till conditions improve is merely not known.
