Zimbabwe gambling dens

by Turner on October 2nd, 2015

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the current time, so you could think that there would be little affinity for supporting Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. In fact, it seems to be functioning the other way, with the atrocious market conditions creating a higher desire to wager, to try and find a quick win, a way from the difficulty.

For many of the citizens surviving on the tiny nearby earnings, there are two common types of betting, the national lottery and Zimbet. As with practically everywhere else on the planet, there is a state lottery where the odds of winning are extremely low, but then the winnings are also surprisingly big. It’s been said by market analysts who study the situation that the majority don’t buy a card with a real expectation of hitting. Zimbet is built on either the domestic or the English soccer leagues and involves determining the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other hand, pamper the extremely rich of the society and tourists. Until not long ago, there was a considerably substantial vacationing industry, based on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The market collapse and associated conflict have cut into this trade.

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

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the aforestated mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a parimutuel betting system), there are also two horse racing complexes in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the economy has diminished by more than 40% in the past few years and with the connected deprivation and bloodshed that has come to pass, it is not understood how well the vacationing industry which funds Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the next few years. How many of the casinos will survive until conditions improve is simply unknown.
