Zimbabwe Casinos

The act of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the moment, so you might imagine that there would be very little appetite for going to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. In reality, it seems to be functioning the opposite way around, with the desperate market conditions leading to a bigger ambition to gamble, to try and locate a fast win, a way out of the crisis.

For nearly all of the citizens living on the abysmal nearby wages, there are two popular forms of betting, the national lotto and Zimbet. As with practically everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lottery where the chances of succeeding are surprisingly tiny, but then the jackpots are also extremely high. It’s been said by market analysts who study the idea that most don’t buy a ticket with a real belief of hitting. Zimbet is built on either the national or the United Kingston football leagues and involves predicting the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other shoe, mollycoddle the extremely rich of the society and travelers. Up till a short while ago, there was a incredibly big vacationing business, founded on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic woes and associated violence have carved into this trade.

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

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos 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 state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the market has diminished by more than 40 percent in the past few years and with the associated deprivation and crime that has cropped up, it isn’t understood how well the tourist business which supports Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the next few years. How many of them will carry through till conditions get better is basically unknown.
