• Zimbabwe gambling halls

    [ English ]

    The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the current time, so you could envision that there would be little appetite for patronizing Zimbabwe’s casinos. In reality, it seems to be working the opposite way, with the atrocious economic circumstances leading to a larger desire to bet, to attempt to find a fast win, a way out of the crisis.

    For many of the citizens surviving on the tiny local wages, there are 2 popular styles of betting, the state lotto and Zimbet. As with most everywhere else in the world, there is a national lotto where the chances of winning are surprisingly tiny, but then the winnings are also extremely high. It’s been said by economists who study the situation that the lion’s share don’t purchase a ticket with a real expectation of profiting. Zimbet is based on one of the domestic or the English soccer leagues and involves determining the results of future games.

    Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other hand, look after the exceedingly rich of the nation and vacationers. Up till not long ago, there was a extremely large vacationing industry, founded on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The market woes and connected crime have carved into this trade.

    Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and one armed bandits, and the Plumtree gambling den, which has just the slot machine games. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only one armed bandits. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the pair of which contain table games, one armed bandits and video machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the two of which have slot machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

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

    Given that the market has shrunk by beyond 40% in the past few years and with the associated poverty and conflict that has cropped up, it isn’t known how well the tourist business which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the in the years to come. How many of them will carry on until conditions improve is simply not known.
