Zimbabwe Casinos

Written by Cyrus. No comments Posted in: Casino

The act of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the current time, so you may think that there would be little affinity for visiting Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. In reality, it seems to be working the other way around, with the desperate market conditions creating a larger ambition to bet, to attempt to locate a fast win, a way out of the difficulty.

For the majority of the locals living on the meager local wages, there are two dominant forms of betting, the national lotto and Zimbet. As with practically everywhere else on the globe, there is a state lottery where the odds of succeeding are surprisingly small, but then the winnings are also surprisingly high. It’s been said by market analysts who look at the subject that the lion’s share don’t buy a card with a real assumption of winning. Zimbet is centered on one of the domestic or the British soccer leagues and involves predicting the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other foot, cater to the astonishingly rich of the nation and tourists. Until a short time ago, there was a incredibly large sightseeing industry, founded on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The economic collapse and associated crime have carved 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 slot machines, and the Plumtree Casino, which has only slot machine games. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only slots. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the two of which offer gaming tables, slot machines and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, both of which offer slot machines and tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the aforementioned talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a pools system), there is a total of 2 horse racing complexes in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second municipality) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Given that the economy has contracted by beyond forty percent in the past few years and with the connected deprivation and conflict that has come about, it is not understood how well the vacationing industry which supports Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the near future. How many of the casinos will carry on until conditions improve is simply unknown.
