Zimbabwe Casinos

Written by Cyrus. No comments Posted in: Casino

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the current time, so you may think that there would be little appetite for visiting Zimbabwe’s casinos. Actually, it appears to be working the other way around, with the atrocious market conditions leading to a bigger eagerness to gamble, to attempt to find a fast win, a way from the problems.

For many of the citizens surviving on the tiny local wages, there are two dominant forms of gambling, the national lotto and Zimbet. As with practically everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lottery where the probabilities of succeeding are extremely small, but then the winnings are also very high. It’s been said by market analysts who study the subject that many do not purchase a ticket with an actual expectation of hitting. Zimbet is built on one of the domestic or the UK football divisions and involves determining the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other hand, pamper the astonishingly rich of the country and sightseers. Up until a short while ago, there was a very big sightseeing business, centered on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The economic anxiety and associated bloodshed have carved into this market.

Amongst 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 just the slots. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just one armed bandits. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the pair of which contain gaming tables, one armed bandits and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the two of which have slot machines and table games.

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

Seeing as that the economy has deflated by more than 40% in the past few years and with the associated deprivation and violence that has arisen, it isn’t known how healthy the sightseeing industry which funds Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the in the years to come. How many of them will still be around till conditions improve is simply unknown.
