Zimbabwe Casinos

[ English | Deutsch | Español | Français | Italiano ]

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the moment, so you may envision that there would be little desire for visiting Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. In reality, it appears to be functioning the other way around, with the critical market circumstances leading to a larger eagerness to play, to try and find a quick win, a way out of the problems.

For the majority of the locals surviving on the abismal local earnings, there are 2 dominant styles of wagering, the national lottery and Zimbet. Just as with practically everywhere else in the world, there is a national lotto where the chances of profiting are unbelievably small, but then the prizes are also very big. It’s been said by market analysts who study the concept that most do not buy a ticket with the rational assumption of winning. Zimbet is built on one of the local or the British soccer divisions and involves determining the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other hand, pander to the considerably rich of the country and vacationers. Until recently, there was a extremely substantial tourist industry, built on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The economic anxiety and associated conflict have carved into this market.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s casinos, there are two 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 machine games. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Centre in Kariba also has only slot machines. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the pair of which have table games, slots and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, both of which have video poker machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the previously talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a pools system), there is a total of two horse racing complexs in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd municipality) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Given that the market has contracted by more than 40 percentin recent years and with the associated poverty and conflict that has come to pass, it isn’t known how well the tourist business which funds Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the near future. How many of them will still be around till conditions get better is basically unknown.
