• Zimbabwe gambling dens

    [ English ]

    The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the current time, so you might envision that there would be little desire for patronizing Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. Actually, it appears to be working the other way around, with the atrocious market circumstances creating a greater ambition to play, to try and discover a fast win, a way from the situation.

    For most of the locals subsisting on the meager local earnings, there are 2 established forms of wagering, the national lottery and Zimbet. Just as with practically everywhere else on the globe, there is a state lotto where the chances of profiting are extremely small, but then the jackpots are also very big. It’s been said by economists who look at the concept that most do not purchase a card with an actual assumption of winning. Zimbet is built on one of the domestic or the UK soccer leagues and involves predicting the results of future games.

    Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other hand, mollycoddle the incredibly rich of the nation and travelers. Up till a short time ago, there was a considerably substantial tourist business, based on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic woes and associated bloodshed have carved into this market.

    Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and one armed bandits, and the Plumtree Casino, 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 two of which contain table games, slot machines and video machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, both of which has gaming machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

    In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls and the aforestated mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a parimutuel betting system), there is a total of two horse racing complexes in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second metropolis) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

    Since the market has contracted by beyond 40 percent in the past few years and with the connected deprivation and violence that has cropped up, it is not known how healthy the tourist industry which funds Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the near future. How many of them will carry on till conditions get better is simply unknown.
