Zimbabwe gambling dens
April 22nd, 2019 by Isai

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the moment, so you could think that there might be little appetite for going to Zimbabwe’s casinos. In reality, it appears to be operating the opposite way around, with the desperate market circumstances creating a greater ambition to wager, to try and discover a fast win, a way from the problems.

For the majority of the citizens subsisting on the abysmal local wages, there are two common forms of wagering, the national lottery and Zimbet. Just as with most everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lotto where the chances of hitting are extremely small, but then the winnings are also surprisingly high. It’s been said by financial experts who understand the situation that the lion’s share do not buy a card with a real belief of winning. Zimbet is founded on either the national or the English football leagues and involves predicting the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other hand, look after the incredibly rich of the country and vacationers. Until not long ago, there was a extremely substantial tourist industry, built on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The economic collapse and associated violence have carved into this trade.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and slot machines, 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, both of which offer table games, one armed bandits and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the pair of which has gaming machines and tables.

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

Since the economy has shrunk by beyond 40 percent in the past few years and with the connected deprivation and conflict that has cropped up, it is not well-known how well the vacationing industry which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the next few years. How many of them will carry on till things get better is merely unknown.
