Zimbabwe Casinos

[ English ]

The act of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the moment, so you could envision that there would be little desire for going to Zimbabwe’s casinos. Actually, it appears to be operating the opposite way, with the desperate market conditions creating a greater ambition to bet, to try and locate a quick win, a way out of the crisis.

For almost all of the citizens living on the abysmal nearby wages, there are 2 common forms of gambling, the state lotto and Zimbet. Just as with almost everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lotto where the probabilities of winning are extremely small, but then the jackpots are also extremely large. It’s been said by market analysts who understand the situation that the majority don’t buy a card with an actual expectation of hitting. Zimbet is based on either the national or the UK soccer divisions and involves predicting the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other hand, pander to the extremely rich of the society and tourists. Until recently, there was a exceptionally big sightseeing business, centered on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The market anxiety and associated conflict have carved into this trade.

Among Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and slot machines, and the Plumtree gambling hall, 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, both of which contain table games, 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 has slot machines and tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the aforementioned mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a parimutuel betting system), there are a total of two horse racing tracks in the nation: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the market has shrunk by more than 40% in the past few years and with the connected poverty and crime that has arisen, it is not understood how healthy the tourist business which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the next few years. How many of them will carry on until things get better is basically unknown.
