Zimbabwe Casinos

Thursday, 15. September 2022

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the current time, so you might imagine that there might be little appetite for patronizing Zimbabwe’s casinos. In fact, it appears to be working the opposite way around, with the atrocious market conditions creating a bigger eagerness to bet, to try and find a fast win, a way out of the problems.

For the majority of the locals subsisting on the meager nearby wages, there are two popular types of wagering, the national lottery and Zimbet. As with most everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lottery where the odds of hitting are unbelievably low, but then the winnings are also remarkably high. It’s been said by economists who look at the subject that many don’t buy a card with the rational assumption of profiting. Zimbet is founded on one of the national or the UK football divisions and involves predicting the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other shoe, look after the astonishingly rich of the country and sightseers. Until a short time ago, there was a exceptionally big tourist industry, based on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic collapse and associated conflict have cut into this market.

Among Zimbabwe’s casinos, 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 only one armed bandits. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, both of which contain table games, one armed bandits and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, each of which offer gaming machines and table games.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the aforestated alluded to lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a parimutuel betting system), there are a total of 2 horse racing tracks in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the market has shrunk by beyond forty percent in recent years and with the connected deprivation and bloodshed that has come to pass, it is not well-known how well the tourist industry which is the foundation for Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the in the years to come. How many of them will survive until things improve is merely not known.
