Zimbabwe gambling dens

[ English ]

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the moment, so you could imagine that there might be very little affinity for patronizing Zimbabwe’s casinos. In reality, it seems to be functioning the opposite way around, with the critical market conditions leading to a bigger eagerness to wager, to attempt to find a quick win, a way from the problems.

For most of the citizens living on the tiny local money, there are two dominant forms of wagering, the state lottery and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lotto where the chances of hitting are unbelievably small, but then the jackpots are also extremely high. It’s been said by financial experts who look at the concept that the lion’s share don’t purchase a card with a real expectation of winning. Zimbet is built on either the domestic or the UK soccer leagues and involves predicting the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other foot, cater to the considerably rich of the country and sightseers. Until a short time ago, there was a considerably substantial vacationing business, based on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic collapse and connected violence have cut into this trade.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s casinos, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and slots, and the Plumtree gambling den, which has just the slot machines. 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, the pair of which offer gaming tables, slots and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, both of which have gaming machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

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

Given that the market has shrunk by more than forty percent in the past few years and with the connected deprivation and violence that has arisen, it isn’t well-known how healthy the vacationing business which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the near future. How many of them will carry through till things improve is simply not known.
