Zimbabwe gambling dens

[ English ]

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the moment, so you might imagine that there would be very little appetite for going to Zimbabwe’s casinos. In fact, it seems to be working the opposite way around, with the awful market conditions creating a larger eagerness to bet, to try and locate a fast win, a way from the crisis.

For nearly all of the locals living on the abysmal nearby earnings, there are two established types of betting, the national lotto and Zimbet. Just as with most everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lotto where the odds of winning are unbelievably low, but then the prizes are also unbelievably high. It’s been said by market analysts who study the concept that the majority do not purchase a ticket with the rational assumption of profiting. Zimbet is founded on one of the national or the English football divisions and involves determining the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other foot, pamper the considerably rich of the society and vacationers. Up till not long ago, there was a extremely substantial sightseeing industry, founded on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The market anxiety and associated bloodshed have cut into this market.

Among Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and slot machines, and the Plumtree gambling hall, which has just the slot machine games. 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, the two of which offer table games, slot machines and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the pair of which have video poker machines and table games.

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

Seeing as that the economy has contracted by more than 40% in recent years and with the connected deprivation and violence that has arisen, it is not known how healthy the sightseeing industry which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the near future. How many of the casinos will survive until things improve is merely unknown.
