Zimbabwe gambling halls

Wednesday, 30. August 2023

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the moment, so you might imagine that there might be little desire for patronizing Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. Actually, it appears to be operating the opposite way around, with the atrocious market conditions leading to a larger eagerness to wager, to attempt to find a quick win, a way out of the problems.

For the majority of the people subsisting on the abysmal nearby wages, there are two common types of betting, the national lotto and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lottery where the chances of succeeding are extremely low, but then the jackpots are also remarkably high. It’s been said by market analysts who study the subject that the lion’s share don’t buy a ticket with an actual belief of profiting. Zimbet is built on either the national or the English football leagues and involves predicting the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other hand, cater to the very rich of the state and vacationers. Until a short time ago, there was a extremely substantial tourist business, centered on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic woes and associated crime have cut into this trade.

Among Zimbabwe’s casinos, 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 only slot machines. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only slot machines. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the two of which have gaming tables, 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 offer gaming machines and table games.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls and the previously talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a pools system), there are also 2 horse racing complexes in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Given that the market has diminished by beyond 40% in the past few years and with the associated deprivation and conflict that has arisen, it is not well-known how well the vacationing industry which is the foundation for Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the near future. How many of the casinos will survive till conditions improve is merely unknown.
