Zimbabwe gambling dens

[ English ]

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the moment, so you might imagine that there might be very little desire for visiting Zimbabwe’s casinos. In reality, it appears to be functioning the other way around, with the awful market conditions leading to a bigger desire to gamble, to attempt to find a fast win, a way out of the situation.

For most of the citizens subsisting on the abysmal nearby money, there are 2 common forms of gambling, the national lottery and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else on the globe, there is a state lotto where the odds of winning are extremely tiny, but then the jackpots are also unbelievably large. It’s been said by economists who study the idea that the majority do not purchase a ticket with an actual expectation of profiting. Zimbet is founded on either the domestic or the UK football leagues and involves predicting the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other shoe, pamper the astonishingly rich of the country and travelers. Up until not long ago, there was a extremely large sightseeing industry, founded on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The market collapse and associated conflict have cut into this market.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and one armed bandits, and the Plumtree gambling hall, 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, both of which contain table games, one armed bandits and video machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the pair of which has slot machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls and the above alluded to lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a parimutuel betting system), there is a total of 2 horse racing complexes in the nation: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second municipality) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the market has shrunk by beyond 40 percent in the past few years and with the associated deprivation and crime that has resulted, it isn’t well-known how well the sightseeing industry which funds Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the next few years. How many of them will be alive till things get better is simply unknown.
