Zimbabwe gambling dens

[ English ]

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the moment, so you could imagine that there would be little affinity for supporting Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. In reality, it appears to be working the other way, with the atrocious economic circumstances leading to a larger desire to wager, to try and locate a fast win, a way from the situation.

For almost all of the citizens living on the tiny local money, there are 2 popular types of gambling, the state lottery and Zimbet. Just as with practically everywhere else on the planet, there is a state lottery where the odds of winning are unbelievably tiny, but then the winnings are also extremely large. It’s been said by financial experts who understand the concept that most do not buy a ticket with a real expectation of winning. Zimbet is founded on either the national or the UK football leagues and involves determining the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other foot, pander to the extremely rich of the state and tourists. Up until a short time ago, there was a exceptionally substantial sightseeing industry, centered on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic anxiety and associated violence have carved into this market.

Among Zimbabwe’s casinos, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and one armed bandits, and the Plumtree gambling hall, which has only slots. 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, both of which have gaming tables, slots and video machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the pair of which has slot machines and table games.

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

Since the market has contracted by more than forty percent in the past few years and with the connected poverty and violence that has resulted, it is not known how healthy the sightseeing business which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the near future. How many of the casinos will carry through until things get better is merely unknown.
