Zimbabwe Casinos

The act of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the moment, so you might envision that there would be little appetite for going to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. Actually, it appears to be working the opposite way, with the awful market conditions leading to a larger ambition to wager, to attempt to find a fast win, a way from the crisis.

For many of the people surviving on the meager nearby wages, there are two established forms of betting, the state lotto and Zimbet. Just as with almost everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lottery where the chances of hitting are extremely small, but then the prizes are also unbelievably large. It’s been said by financial experts who understand the subject that the lion’s share do not purchase a ticket with an actual belief of hitting. Zimbet is based on one of the domestic or the UK soccer leagues and involves predicting the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other shoe, mollycoddle the very rich of the country and tourists. Up until recently, there was a very big tourist industry, built on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The economic collapse and connected conflict have cut into this market.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and slots, and the Plumtree Casino, which has only slot machines. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just slots. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the two of which have table games, slots and video machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, each of which have slot machines and table games.

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

Given that the market has shrunk by beyond 40% in recent years and with the connected poverty and crime that has come to pass, it is not known how well the sightseeing industry which funds Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the next few years. How many of the casinos will carry on until things improve is merely unknown.
