Zimbabwe Casinos

by Sierra on May 10th, 2017

The act of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the current time, so you may think that there might be little appetite for going to Zimbabwe’s casinos. Actually, it seems to be operating the opposite way around, with the awful market conditions creating a greater ambition to play, to try and find a fast win, a way out of the problems.

For almost all of the locals surviving on the meager nearby earnings, there are 2 established forms of betting, the state lottery and Zimbet. Just as with almost everywhere else in the world, there is a national lottery where the chances of succeeding are extremely low, but then the prizes are also surprisingly large. It’s been said by financial experts who understand the subject that most don’t buy a card with a real assumption of profiting. Zimbet is based on one of the domestic or the English football leagues and involves determining the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other foot, pamper the extremely rich of the nation and travelers. Until not long ago, there was a extremely large tourist business, based on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic anxiety and connected conflict have carved into this market.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, there are two 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 just the slot machines. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only slots. 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 has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the two of which offer slot machines and tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the aforementioned alluded to lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a parimutuel betting system), there is a total of two horse racing tracks in the nation: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Given that the economy has diminished by beyond 40 percent in the past few years and with the associated deprivation and conflict that has come to pass, it isn’t well-known how healthy the vacationing business which is the foundation for Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the in the years to come. How many of them will be alive until things get better is simply unknown.
