Zimbabwe Casinos
January 17th, 2010 by Hassan

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the current time, so you may think that there might be little appetite for going to Zimbabwe’s casinos. In reality, it appears to be functioning the opposite way around, with the crucial market circumstances leading to a bigger eagerness to play, to try and locate a fast win, a way from the crisis.

For nearly all of the citizens surviving on the tiny local money, there are 2 established types of gaming, the state lotto and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else in the world, there is a national lottery where the probabilities of winning are remarkably small, but then the jackpots are also unbelievably large. It’s been said by economists who study the situation that the majority do not buy a ticket with the rational belief of winning. Zimbet is built on either the domestic or the English soccer divisions and involves predicting the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other shoe, mollycoddle the considerably rich of the society and travelers. Until a short while ago, there was a extremely large tourist business, founded on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The economic collapse and associated crime have carved into this market.

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 only slot machines. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only one armed bandits. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the pair of which have table games, slot machines and video machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the pair of which offer video poker machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

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

Given that the market has contracted by more than 40% in recent years and with the associated poverty and crime that has come about, it isn’t known how healthy the vacationing industry which funds Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the near future. How many of the casinos will be alive until things improve is basically unknown.
