Zimbabwe Casinos

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the moment, so you could think that there would be little desire for supporting Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. In reality, it appears to be working the other way, with the crucial economic circumstances creating a bigger eagerness to wager, to try and find a quick win, a way out of the situation.

For most of the citizens living on the tiny local wages, there are two established styles of wagering, the national lottery and Zimbet. Just as with practically everywhere else on the globe, there is a state lottery where the chances of profiting are unbelievably small, but then the jackpots are also unbelievably large. It’s been said by financial experts who look at the idea that many don’t buy a card with a real expectation of hitting. Zimbet is built on one of the local or the UK football leagues and involves determining the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other hand, look after the very rich of the nation and tourists. Up till a short time ago, there was a very big tourist business, built on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic anxiety and connected conflict 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 five gaming tables and slots, and the Plumtree gambling hall, which has only slot machine games. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only slot machines. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, both of which contain gaming tables, slots and video 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 table games.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls and the aforestated alluded to lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a parimutuel betting system), there are a total of 2 horse racing tracks in the nation: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second metropolis) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the market has shrunk by beyond 40 percent in the past few years and with the connected poverty and violence that has resulted, it is not understood how well the vacationing industry which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the in the years to come. How many of the casinos will still be around till things improve is simply not known.
