• Zimbabwe gambling halls

    [ English | Deutsch | Español | Français | Italiano ]

    The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the current time, so you could imagine that there would be little desire for patronizing Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. In fact, it appears to be operating the other way, with the desperate market conditions leading to a greater desire to play, to try and discover a quick win, a way from the problems.

    For almost all of the people living on the meager local money, there are two common types of wagering, the national lottery and Zimbet. Just as with most everywhere else on the globe, there is a state lottery where the probabilities of winning are extremely low, but then the winnings are also surprisingly large. It’s been said by financial experts who study the idea that the lion’s share don’t buy a card with a real belief of hitting. Zimbet is founded on one of the domestic or the UK soccer leagues and involves predicting the outcomes of future games.

    Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other shoe, mollycoddle the astonishingly rich of the society and tourists. Until recently, there was a extremely substantial sightseeing industry, founded on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic woes and associated conflict have cut into this trade.

    Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and slots, and the Plumtree Casino, which has just the slot machines. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just one armed bandits. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the pair of which have gaming tables, slot machines and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the two of which have gaming machines and table games.

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

    Since the economy has diminished by more than forty percent in the past few years and with the connected deprivation and crime that has cropped up, it is not understood how well the sightseeing business which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the next few years. How many of the casinos will carry through until conditions get better is basically unknown.
