Zimbabwe gambling dens

[ English ]

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the moment, so you could think that there might be little desire for supporting Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. In reality, it appears to be functioning the opposite way, with the critical economic conditions leading to a bigger eagerness to wager, to try and locate a quick win, a way out of the difficulty.

For most of the citizens surviving on the abysmal local money, there are 2 common styles of gambling, the national lotto and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lotto where the odds of profiting are unbelievably tiny, but then the prizes are also extremely large. It’s been said by financial experts who understand the subject that the majority don’t buy a ticket with an actual assumption of winning. Zimbet is founded on either the local or the English soccer divisions and involves predicting the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other shoe, pamper the very rich of the nation and vacationers. Up until not long ago, there was a considerably large vacationing business, founded on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The market collapse and connected conflict have cut into this market.

Among Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, 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 Casino, which has only slot machines. 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 have table games, slot machines and video machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, both of which offer gaming machines and tables.

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

Since the market has diminished by beyond forty percent in recent years and with the associated deprivation and bloodshed that has resulted, it isn’t known how well the sightseeing industry which funds Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the near future. How many of the casinos will survive till conditions improve is basically unknown.
