Zimbabwe Casinos

[ English ]

The act of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the current time, so you may imagine that there would be little appetite for patronizing Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. In fact, it appears to be operating the other way, with the awful market conditions leading to a larger eagerness to play, to try and discover a quick win, a way out of the problems.

For most of the locals surviving on the abysmal local money, there are 2 popular types of gaming, the state lotto and Zimbet. As with most everywhere else in the world, there is a state lotto where the probabilities of winning are surprisingly tiny, but then the jackpots are also unbelievably large. It’s been said by financial experts who study the subject that the majority do not purchase a ticket with an actual expectation of winning. Zimbet is founded on one of the national or the UK soccer leagues and involves determining the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other hand, look after the considerably rich of the state and tourists. Up until recently, there was a exceptionally large tourist industry, based on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The market anxiety and connected conflict have carved into this market.

Among Zimbabwe’s casinos, 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 one armed bandits. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, both of which have table games, slots and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, each of which offer gaming machines and table games.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls and the aforementioned talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a pools system), there is a total of 2 horse racing complexes in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second municipality) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the economy has contracted by beyond 40% in recent years and with the associated deprivation and conflict that has cropped up, it isn’t understood how healthy the tourist business which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the near future. How many of the casinos will survive till things get better is merely unknown.
