Zimbabwe Casinos

The act of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the current time, so you could envision that there would be little appetite for going to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. In fact, it seems to be working the other way, with the crucial economic conditions creating a higher ambition to gamble, to attempt to locate a quick win, a way out of the difficulty.

For the majority of the people surviving on the meager local money, there are two dominant styles of gaming, the state lotto and Zimbet. Just as with almost everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lottery where the chances of hitting are remarkably low, but then the jackpots are also extremely large. It’s been said by financial experts who study the situation that the lion’s share do not buy a card with the rational belief of hitting. Zimbet is based on one of the domestic or the British soccer leagues and involves predicting the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other shoe, cater to the exceedingly rich of the nation and sightseers. Up till recently, there was a very big tourist business, based on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The market woes and connected violence have cut 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 just the slots. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just one armed bandits. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the pair of which contain gaming tables, slot machines and video machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the two of which offer gaming machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls and the aforementioned alluded to lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a pools system), there are 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.

Seeing as that the economy has deflated by beyond 40% in the past few years and with the connected poverty and violence that has arisen, it is not known how healthy the vacationing business which funds Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the in the years to come. How many of them will survive until conditions get better is basically unknown.
