Zimbabwe gambling halls

[ English ]

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the current time, so you could think that there might be little affinity for going to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. Actually, it seems to be functioning the opposite way, with the critical economic conditions creating a bigger desire to wager, to try and discover a fast win, a way out of the situation.

For nearly all of the people surviving on the tiny local wages, there are two popular types of betting, the national lottery and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else in the world, there is a state lottery where the chances of succeeding are extremely low, but then the jackpots are also remarkably big. It’s been said by economists who understand the concept that the majority don’t purchase a ticket with a real assumption of profiting. Zimbet is centered on either the local or the British soccer leagues and involves determining the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other foot, look after the exceedingly rich of the state and tourists. Up till a short while ago, there was a extremely substantial vacationing business, founded on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The market collapse and associated crime have carved into this market.

Among Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and slots, and the Plumtree gambling hall, which has only slot machine games. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only slots. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the two of which have table games, slot machines and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, both of which offer slot machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the aforementioned alluded to lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a pools system), there is a total of 2 horse racing complexes in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Given that the market has diminished by more than 40% in the past few years and with the connected deprivation and violence that has arisen, it is not well-known how healthy the sightseeing industry which funds Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the next few years. How many of them will carry through until things improve is merely unknown.
