Zimbabwe gambling dens

[ English ]

The act of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the current time, so you could imagine that there would be little affinity for supporting Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. In reality, it appears to be working the opposite way, with the awful economic conditions leading to a greater ambition to bet, to try and find a quick win, a way out of the problems.

For nearly all of the citizens subsisting on the meager local money, there are two common forms of gambling, the state lotto and Zimbet. As with most everywhere else in the world, there is a state lottery where the chances of profiting are remarkably tiny, but then the winnings are also unbelievably large. It’s been said by economists who study the idea that most don’t purchase a card with the rational assumption of hitting. Zimbet is based on one of the domestic or the United Kingston soccer divisions and involves determining the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other foot, look after the exceedingly rich of the society and sightseers. Until not long ago, there was a very large vacationing business, centered on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The economic woes 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 one armed bandits, and the Plumtree Casino, 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 have gaming tables, slot machines and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the two of which has video poker machines and tables.

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

Given that the economy has diminished by more than 40 percent in recent years and with the connected poverty and crime that has come to pass, it isn’t well-known how healthy the tourist industry which supports Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the in the years to come. How many of the casinos will carry on until conditions get better is simply not known.
