Zimbabwe Casinos

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the moment, so you might think that there would be little affinity for visiting Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. Actually, it seems to be operating the opposite way, with the desperate economic conditions leading to a larger desire to play, to attempt to find a fast win, a way from the crisis.

For the majority of the people living on the meager nearby earnings, there are 2 popular styles of gaming, the national lottery and Zimbet. As with practically everywhere else on the planet, there is a national lottery where the probabilities of succeeding are extremely low, but then the winnings are also surprisingly large. It’s been said by economists who study the situation that most do not buy a card with an actual expectation of winning. Zimbet is founded on one of the domestic or the UK football leagues and involves predicting the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other foot, mollycoddle the considerably rich of the state and travelers. Until a short time ago, there was a considerably large sightseeing industry, based on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic collapse and associated conflict have cut into this market.

Among Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and slots, and the Plumtree gambling hall, which has just the slot machines. 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 pair of which have gaming tables, one armed bandits and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, both of which has video poker machines and tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls and the previously talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a parimutuel betting system), there are also 2 horse racing tracks in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the economy has shrunk by beyond 40% in the past few years and with the connected poverty and bloodshed that has arisen, it is not well-known how well the tourist business which is the foundation for Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the near future. How many of them will carry on till conditions get better is simply not known.
