Zimbabwe gambling halls

[ English ]

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the current time, so you might think that there would be little appetite for going to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. In fact, it seems to be working the other way around, with the critical market conditions creating a bigger eagerness to wager, to try and discover a quick win, a way from the crisis.

For many of the citizens surviving on the meager nearby earnings, there are 2 common types of gambling, the state lottery and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else on the planet, there is a state lotto where the probabilities of profiting are remarkably small, but then the winnings are also remarkably big. It’s been said by economists who study the idea that the lion’s share do not buy a ticket with the rational belief of winning. Zimbet is founded on either the national or the British soccer leagues and involves determining the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other foot, look after the considerably rich of the society and tourists. Up till not long ago, there was a very large tourist business, built on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The economic woes and connected crime have cut into this market.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s casinos, 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 Casino, which has just the slot machines. 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 two of which offer table games, slots and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, both of which has video poker machines and table games.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls and the aforestated talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a pools system), there are a total of two horse racing tracks in the nation: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second municipality) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Given that the economy has shrunk by more than 40% in the past few years and with the associated deprivation and conflict that has come to pass, it is not understood how well the sightseeing business which funds Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the next few years. How many of them will carry on until conditions get better is merely unknown.
