Zimbabwe Casinos

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the current time, so you might envision that there would be little desire for visiting Zimbabwe’s casinos. In fact, it seems to be operating the opposite way around, with the atrocious market conditions creating a higher ambition to bet, to try and locate a quick win, a way out of the problems.

For most of the citizens surviving on the meager local money, there are two common styles of betting, the national lottery and Zimbet. Just as with almost everywhere else in the world, there is a state lottery where the odds of succeeding are unbelievably small, but then the winnings are also remarkably large. It’s been said by economists who understand the subject that many do not purchase a card with a real belief of profiting. Zimbet is built on either the domestic or the United Kingston soccer divisions and involves determining the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other shoe, pander to the considerably rich of the society and tourists. Until recently, there was a very large sightseeing industry, built on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The market woes and connected bloodshed have carved into this trade.

Among 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 slots. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only one armed bandits. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the two of which contain table games, slot machines 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 slot machines and tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the aforementioned alluded to lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a parimutuel betting system), there are a total of 2 horse racing tracks in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd municipality) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the economy has contracted by beyond forty percent in the past few years and with the associated deprivation and crime that has cropped up, it is not understood how healthy the vacationing business which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the near future. How many of them will carry on till conditions improve is basically unknown.
