Zimbabwe Casinos

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the moment, so you might think that there might be little desire for going to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. Actually, it seems to be functioning the other way around, with the critical market conditions creating a greater desire to gamble, to try and find a fast win, a way out of the problems.

For the majority of the citizens surviving on the abysmal local wages, there are 2 common forms of gaming, the national lotto and Zimbet. Just as with almost everywhere else in the world, there is a national lotto where the probabilities of succeeding are remarkably low, but then the jackpots are also extremely high. It’s been said by economists who look at the situation that the lion’s share don’t buy a card with a real assumption of hitting. Zimbet is founded on either the local or the English football divisions and involves determining the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other foot, cater to the astonishingly rich of the country and sightseers. Up till a short time ago, there was a exceptionally big vacationing industry, founded on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The market woes and associated violence have cut into this market.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and slots, and the Plumtree gambling den, which has only slot machines. 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 pair of which offer table games, slot machines and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, each of which offer video poker machines and table games.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls and the aforestated alluded to lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a pools system), there are also two horse racing tracks in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second metropolis) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the economy has contracted by beyond 40% in recent years and with the associated deprivation and bloodshed that has come about, it isn’t understood how healthy the tourist industry which supports Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the near future. How many of them will carry on till things improve is merely unknown.
