Zimbabwe gambling dens

[ English ]

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the moment, so you might think that there might be very little appetite for going to Zimbabwe’s casinos. In reality, it seems to be working the other way around, with the crucial economic conditions creating a higher ambition to gamble, to try and locate a quick win, a way from the problems.

For nearly all of the citizens living on the meager local money, there are 2 common types of wagering, the national lottery and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else in the world, there is a national lottery where the probabilities of succeeding are remarkably low, but then the jackpots are also remarkably large. It’s been said by market analysts who look at the subject that many do not buy a card with a real belief of hitting. Zimbet is centered on either the national or the United Kingston football leagues and involves determining the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other hand, pamper the astonishingly rich of the nation and travelers. Up till a short time ago, there was a extremely large sightseeing business, centered on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The market anxiety and connected conflict have cut into this trade.

Among Zimbabwe’s casinos, there are 2 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 slot machines. Mutare has 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 have video poker machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the above alluded to lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a pools system), there are also two horse racing complexes in the nation: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second metropolis) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Given that the economy has deflated by more than 40 percent in the past few years and with the connected poverty and violence that has come to pass, it isn’t well-known how well the sightseeing industry which is the foundation for Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the near future. How many of the casinos will be alive until conditions get better is simply unknown.
