Zimbabwe Casinos

[ English ]

The act of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the moment, so you may think that there might be little appetite for supporting Zimbabwe’s casinos. Actually, it appears to be functioning the other way around, with the crucial economic conditions leading to a larger desire to play, to try and locate a fast win, a way out of the difficulty.

For nearly all of the citizens subsisting on the meager local money, there are 2 common styles of betting, the national lotto and Zimbet. As with most everywhere else in the world, there is a national lotto where the chances of succeeding are remarkably small, but then the jackpots are also surprisingly big. It’s been said by market analysts who understand the subject that most don’t buy a card with a real expectation of winning. Zimbet is founded on one of the domestic or the UK soccer leagues and involves predicting the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other foot, mollycoddle the astonishingly rich of the state and sightseers. Until not long ago, there was a very substantial vacationing business, based on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The market anxiety and associated crime have cut into this trade.

Among Zimbabwe’s casinos, 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 gambling den, which has just the slot machines. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only slot machines. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, both of which contain table games, slot machines and video machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the two of which have video poker machines and tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the aforestated talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a pools system), there are also 2 horse racing complexes in the nation: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the economy has diminished by beyond 40% in the past few years and with the connected deprivation and bloodshed that has come to pass, it isn’t well-known how healthy the vacationing business which is the foundation for Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the near future. How many of the casinos will still be around until things get better is basically not known.
