Zimbabwe Casinos

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the moment, so you could think that there might be very little appetite for going to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. Actually, it appears to be working the opposite way, with the awful market circumstances leading to a greater desire to bet, to attempt to find a fast win, a way from the situation.

For nearly all of the people living on the meager local wages, there are 2 popular types of gaming, the national lottery and Zimbet. As with most everywhere else in the world, there is a national lottery where the chances of succeeding are extremely small, but then the winnings are also very big. It’s been said by market analysts who look at the situation that the majority don’t buy a card with an actual expectation of hitting. Zimbet is founded on one of the national or the UK football leagues and involves predicting the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other shoe, cater to the exceedingly rich of the nation and vacationers. Up till recently, there was a extremely large vacationing business, founded on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The market anxiety and associated conflict have carved into this market.

Among Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and one armed bandits, and the Plumtree gambling den, which has only slots. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only one armed bandits. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the pair of which have gaming tables, one armed bandits and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the two of which has gaming machines and table games.

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

Given that the economy has shrunk by beyond forty percent in the past few years and with the connected deprivation and bloodshed that has resulted, it isn’t well-known how well the vacationing business which funds Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the next few years. How many of the casinos will still be around till conditions improve is simply unknown.
