Zimbabwe gambling halls

by Turner on February 3rd, 2016

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the moment, so you might imagine that there would be very little desire for patronizing Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. Actually, it seems to be functioning the opposite way, with the desperate economic circumstances leading to a bigger desire to wager, to attempt to locate a quick win, a way from the crisis.

For many of the people surviving on the abysmal local money, there are 2 established types of gaming, the national lotto and Zimbet. As with most everywhere else in the world, there is a state lottery where the probabilities of winning are extremely tiny, but then the prizes are also remarkably large. It’s been said by economists who understand the subject that most do not buy a ticket with a real assumption of winning. Zimbet is based on one of the domestic or the UK soccer leagues and involves predicting the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other shoe, mollycoddle the extremely rich of the country and sightseers. Up till a short while ago, there was a exceptionally substantial vacationing industry, centered on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The market woes and associated crime have cut into this market.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, 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 only slots. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only slot machines. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, both of which offer gaming tables, slots and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, both of which have video poker machines and tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the aforementioned talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a pools system), there is a total of two horse racing complexes in the nation: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second metropolis) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the market has shrunk by beyond 40 percent in recent years and with the associated poverty and crime that has come about, it is not well-known how well the tourist business which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the in the years to come. How many of the casinos will carry through until things improve is simply not known.
