Zimbabwe gambling halls

Sunday, 17. November 2019

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the current time, so you may imagine that there might be little affinity for patronizing Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. Actually, it appears to be functioning the opposite way around, with the critical market circumstances creating a greater desire to bet, to attempt to discover a fast win, a way from the crisis.

For nearly all of the citizens surviving on the meager local money, there are 2 established styles of gaming, the national lottery and Zimbet. Just as with almost everywhere else on the planet, there is a national lottery where the odds of succeeding are surprisingly tiny, but then the jackpots are also remarkably large. It’s been said by financial experts who look at the concept that many do not buy a ticket with a real assumption of profiting. Zimbet is founded on either the domestic or the British football leagues and involves determining the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other hand, cater to the incredibly rich of the country and tourists. Up until a short while ago, there was a exceptionally substantial tourist business, founded on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic anxiety and connected crime have cut into this market.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and slots, and the Plumtree gambling den, which has only slot machine games. 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, the pair 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 pair of which offer gaming 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 is a total of 2 horse racing complexes in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the market has diminished by more than 40 percent in the past few years and with the associated deprivation and bloodshed that has come to pass, it isn’t understood how well the sightseeing business which is the foundation for Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the next few years. How many of the casinos will carry on till conditions improve is basically not known.
