Zimbabwe Casinos

Monday, 11. February 2019

The act of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the current time, so you might think that there might be very little affinity for going to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. In reality, it appears to be working the other way, with the critical market conditions leading to a higher desire to play, to try and find a fast win, a way from the situation.

For nearly all of the locals subsisting on the tiny local wages, there are two common forms of betting, the state lotto and Zimbet. Just as with almost everywhere else on the globe, there is a state lottery where the probabilities of profiting are extremely low, but then the jackpots are also remarkably big. It’s been said by market analysts who study the situation that the lion’s share don’t purchase a card with an actual belief of winning. Zimbet is centered on either the domestic or the British football leagues and involves determining the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other foot, pamper the considerably rich of the society and sightseers. Up till not long ago, there was a considerably large sightseeing industry, centered on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The market collapse and associated conflict have cut into this trade.

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

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls and the above talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a parimutuel betting system), there are also two horse racing complexes in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd municipality) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the market has shrunk by more than 40% in recent years and with the connected poverty and violence that has arisen, it is not understood how healthy the sightseeing business which supports Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the near future. How many of them will be alive until conditions get better is merely unknown.
