Zimbabwe Casinos

Written by Tristan. No comments Posted in: Casino

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the current time, so you might imagine that there would be very little desire for going to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. Actually, it seems to be operating the other way around, with the desperate economic conditions leading to a larger eagerness to play, to try and locate a fast win, a way out of the difficulty.

For many of the locals surviving on the meager local wages, there are 2 dominant forms of gaming, the state lotto and Zimbet. Just as with almost everywhere else on the planet, there is a state lotto where the odds of succeeding are extremely low, but then the winnings are also unbelievably high. It’s been said by market analysts who study the idea that the majority don’t buy a ticket with the rational belief of profiting. Zimbet is built on either the national or the United Kingston soccer leagues and involves predicting the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other hand, look after the very rich of the nation and tourists. Up until a short time ago, there was a very substantial sightseeing business, built on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The market woes and associated crime 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 gambling hall, which has only slot machines. 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 pair of which offer table games, slot machines and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, both of which has gaming machines and table games.

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

Since the market has diminished by more than 40 percent in the past few years and with the connected poverty and violence that has resulted, it is not well-known how well the vacationing business which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the next few years. How many of them will survive until conditions get better is basically not known.
