Zimbabwe gambling halls
September 26th, 2015 by Jaiden

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the current time, so you may imagine that there would be very little affinity for visiting Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. Actually, it appears to be working the opposite way around, with the desperate market circumstances leading to a bigger ambition to play, to attempt to discover a quick win, a way out of the crisis.

For many of the people surviving on the meager nearby money, there are 2 dominant types of gaming, the national lottery and Zimbet. As with practically everywhere else in the world, there is a national lotto where the odds of profiting are surprisingly low, but then the prizes are also unbelievably big. It’s been said by market analysts who look at the subject that the majority don’t purchase a ticket with a real expectation of profiting. Zimbet is based on one of the domestic or the UK soccer leagues and involves determining the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other hand, mollycoddle the very rich of the nation and tourists. Until a short time ago, there was a very large vacationing industry, built on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The market collapse and associated bloodshed have carved into this market.

Among Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, 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 machines. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just one armed bandits. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, both 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, the two of which offer slot machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the above mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a parimutuel betting system), there are also two horse racing complexes in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd municipality) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the economy has shrunk by more than forty percent in the past few years and with the associated poverty and crime that has arisen, it is not well-known how healthy the sightseeing business which funds Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the in the years to come. How many of the casinos will carry through until conditions improve is basically not known.
