Zimbabwe gambling halls
September 29th, 2015 by Hassan

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the current time, so you may think that there would be little appetite for going to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. In reality, it seems to be operating the opposite way around, with the awful market conditions creating a larger ambition to bet, to try and find a quick win, a way out of the problems.

For many of the citizens living on the tiny local earnings, there are 2 popular styles of wagering, the state lottery and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else on the planet, there is a state lottery where the probabilities of hitting are surprisingly low, but then the winnings are also unbelievably large. It’s been said by financial experts who look at the concept that many don’t buy a card with the rational assumption of winning. Zimbet is based on one of the local or the British football leagues and involves determining the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other shoe, mollycoddle the considerably rich of the nation and vacationers. Up until a short while ago, there was a exceptionally substantial sightseeing business, founded on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The market anxiety and connected bloodshed have cut into this market.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s casinos, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and one armed bandits, and the Plumtree Casino, which has only slots. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only slot machines. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, both of which offer table games, slot machines and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the pair of which has video poker machines and table games.

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

Seeing as that the market has diminished by beyond 40 percent in the past few years and with the associated poverty and bloodshed that has resulted, it is not known how well the tourist business which funds Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the next few years. How many of them will still be around till conditions improve is basically unknown.
