Zimbabwe gambling halls

[ English ]

The act of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the current time, so you might think that there would be little desire for patronizing Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. In fact, it appears to be working the opposite way around, with the awful market conditions leading to a larger desire to bet, to attempt to find a quick win, a way from the problems.

For almost all of the people subsisting on the tiny local wages, there are 2 established types of gaming, the state lotto and Zimbet. Just as with practically everywhere else on the planet, there is a state lottery where the chances of succeeding are unbelievably small, but then the winnings are also very high. It’s been said by market analysts who understand the idea that many don’t purchase a ticket with the rational belief of hitting. Zimbet is based on either the national or the English football leagues and involves determining the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other foot, pander to the extremely rich of the society and travelers. Up till recently, there was a very large tourist industry, founded on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic collapse and associated bloodshed have cut into this trade.

Amongst 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 gambling hall, which has just the slots. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just slots. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the two of which have gaming tables, slot machines and electronic 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 blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

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

Since the market has shrunk by more than 40 percent in the past few years and with the connected poverty and bloodshed that has come about, it isn’t well-known how well the sightseeing business which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the next few years. How many of them will survive till things get better is basically unknown.
