Zimbabwe Casinos

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the moment, so you could think that there would be very little desire for going to Zimbabwe’s casinos. In fact, it seems to be operating the opposite way, with the awful economic circumstances leading to a bigger eagerness to play, to attempt to locate a fast win, a way from the situation.

For most of the people living on the abysmal local wages, there are two dominant types of gambling, the state lottery and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else on the globe, there is a state lotto where the chances of winning are surprisingly low, but then the winnings are also surprisingly large. It’s been said by financial experts who study the idea that the majority do not buy a ticket with an actual assumption of hitting. Zimbet is centered on either the domestic or the British football leagues and involves determining the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other hand, look after the exceedingly rich of the country and vacationers. Up until recently, there was a very big tourist industry, based on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The economic woes and associated crime have carved into this trade.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and slots, and the Plumtree gambling hall, which has just the slot machine games. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only slots. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the two of which offer table games, slots and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the pair of which has slot machines and table games.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the above mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a parimutuel betting system), there is a total of 2 horse racing complexes in the nation: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd municipality) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Given that the market has diminished by beyond forty percent in recent years and with the connected poverty and conflict that has cropped up, it is not well-known how well the tourist business which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the next few years. How many of them will carry through till things improve is simply unknown.
