Zimbabwe gambling halls

[ English ]

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the moment, so you may imagine that there might be little affinity for going to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. In fact, it appears to be functioning the opposite way, with the atrocious economic circumstances creating a higher ambition to wager, to attempt to discover a quick win, a way from the difficulty.

For many of the people living on the tiny nearby money, there are two common styles of gaming, the national lottery and Zimbet. As with most everywhere else on the planet, there is a state lottery where the odds of profiting are unbelievably tiny, but then the jackpots are also very high. It’s been said by market analysts who look at the subject that the lion’s share don’t buy a ticket with a real belief of winning. Zimbet is built on one of the local or the British football divisions and involves determining the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other shoe, cater to the extremely rich of the society and travelers. Until a short time ago, there was a very large vacationing industry, centered on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The market anxiety and associated conflict have cut into this trade.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, 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 gambling den, which has just the slot machine games. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just slots. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the two of which offer gaming tables, one armed bandits and video poker 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 table games.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the aforestated talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a pools 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.

Seeing as that the economy has contracted by more than forty percent in the past few years and with the associated poverty and violence that has come about, it is not understood how healthy the vacationing industry which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the next few years. How many of them will still be around until conditions improve is merely not known.
