Zimbabwe gambling dens

[ English ]

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the moment, so you may envision that there might be very little desire for going to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. In fact, it seems to be operating the other way around, with the desperate market circumstances leading to a larger desire to play, to try and locate a fast win, a way out of the difficulty.

For almost all of the locals living on the tiny nearby money, there are two popular styles of gambling, the state lotto and Zimbet. As with most everywhere else on the globe, there is a state lottery where the odds of hitting are extremely tiny, but then the jackpots are also remarkably big. It’s been said by market analysts who look at the concept that many do not buy a card with an actual expectation of profiting. Zimbet is based on either the local or the British soccer leagues and involves predicting the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other hand, mollycoddle the incredibly rich of the nation and tourists. Until a short while ago, there was a considerably large tourist industry, based on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The market collapse and associated violence have carved into this trade.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and one armed bandits, and the Plumtree gambling hall, which has just the 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 gaming tables, one armed bandits and video machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, each of which offer video poker machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the above talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a parimutuel betting system), there are a total of 2 horse racing tracks in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Given that the economy has diminished by beyond forty percent in the past few years and with the associated poverty and bloodshed that has resulted, it isn’t known how healthy the vacationing industry which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the in the years to come. How many of the casinos will carry through until things improve is basically unknown.
