Zimbabwe gambling dens

[ English | Deutsch | Español | Français | Italiano ]

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the moment, so you might imagine that there might be very little desire for patronizing Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. In fact, it appears to be operating the other way around, with the crucial economic conditions creating a larger eagerness to gamble, to attempt to discover a quick win, a way out of the crisis.

For many of the locals surviving on the abismal nearby wages, there are 2 popular forms of betting, the national lottery and Zimbet. Just as with almost everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lottery where the odds of profiting are surprisingly low, but then the jackpots are also very big. It’s been said by financial experts who understand the subject that the majority do not buy a card with an actual expectation of winning. Zimbet is founded on either the national or the United Kingston soccer divisions and involves predicting the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other foot, pamper the incredibly rich of the nation and vacationers. Until a short while ago, there was a considerably large sightseeing industry, based on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The market woes and connected bloodshed have carved into this trade.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and slots, and the Plumtree gambling hall, which has only slot machines. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Centre in Kariba also has just slots. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the two of which have table games, one armed bandits and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, both of which have slot machines and tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the aforementioned talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a pools system), there are also 2 horse racing complexs in the nation: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd metropolis) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Given that the economy has shrunk by more than 40%in the past few years and with the connected deprivation and bloodshed that has cropped up, it isn’t known how healthy the tourist business which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the in the years to come. How many of the casinos will be alive till things get better is merely unknown.
