Zimbabwe Casinos

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the moment, so you might think that there might be very little desire for patronizing Zimbabwe’s casinos. Actually, it seems to be working the other way, with the critical economic conditions leading to a bigger eagerness to wager, to attempt to find a quick win, a way from the crisis.

For most of the people living on the meager nearby wages, there are two common styles of wagering, the state lottery and Zimbet. Just as with almost everywhere else on the globe, there is a state lottery where the probabilities of hitting are surprisingly low, but then the prizes are also surprisingly big. It’s been said by economists who understand the situation that the lion’s share don’t buy a ticket with the rational expectation of hitting. Zimbet is centered on either the local or the United Kingston soccer leagues and involves determining the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other shoe, cater to the exceedingly rich of the nation and vacationers. Up until a short time ago, there was a exceptionally substantial sightseeing industry, built on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The market anxiety and connected conflict have carved into this market.

Among Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and slot machines, and the Plumtree Casino, which has only slot machines. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only one armed bandits. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, both of which contain gaming tables, one armed bandits and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the pair of which has gaming machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

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

Given that the economy has shrunk by beyond 40% in recent years and with the associated poverty and bloodshed that has come to pass, it is not well-known how well the tourist industry which funds Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the next few years. How many of the casinos will survive until conditions improve is merely unknown.
