Zimbabwe gambling halls
September 5th, 2020 by Isai

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the moment, so you could envision that there might be little appetite for going to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. In reality, it appears to be operating the opposite way, with the critical market circumstances creating a greater desire to gamble, to try and find a fast win, a way out of the crisis.

For most of the locals living on the abysmal local money, there are 2 common styles of betting, the national lottery and Zimbet. Just as with practically everywhere else on the globe, there is a state lotto where the chances of hitting are remarkably small, but then the jackpots are also extremely high. It’s been said by economists who study the subject that the majority do not purchase a ticket with a real belief of winning. Zimbet is based on either the national or the British soccer divisions and involves determining the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other foot, look after the exceedingly rich of the state and tourists. Up until not long ago, there was a considerably big sightseeing industry, centered on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic woes and connected conflict have carved into this trade.

Among Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and one armed bandits, and the Plumtree gambling den, which has only slot machine games. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center 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 gaming tables, slot machines and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the two of which offer video poker machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the previously mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a parimutuel betting system), there are also 2 horse racing tracks in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the economy has deflated by beyond 40% in recent years and with the connected deprivation and conflict that has come to pass, it is not understood how well the vacationing industry which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the in the years to come. How many of them will survive until things improve is merely not known.
