• Zimbabwe Casinos

    [ English ]

    The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the moment, so you may think that there would be little desire for visiting Zimbabwe’s casinos. In reality, it appears to be functioning the other way, with the awful economic circumstances creating a greater desire to wager, to try and find a fast win, a way from the difficulty.

    For nearly all of the people surviving on the tiny nearby wages, there are two established forms of betting, the state lotto and Zimbet. Just as with practically everywhere else on the globe, there is a state lotto where the probabilities of winning are unbelievably low, but then the winnings are also extremely large. It’s been said by market analysts who study the situation that the lion’s share don’t purchase a ticket with an actual expectation of profiting. Zimbet is founded on either the domestic or the British soccer leagues and involves determining the results of future matches.

    Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other shoe, mollycoddle the extremely rich of the state and travelers. Up until recently, there was a considerably big sightseeing business, founded on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The economic woes and connected bloodshed have cut into this trade.

    Among Zimbabwe’s casinos, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and slot machines, and the Plumtree gambling hall, which has only slot machines. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only slots. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, both of which contain table games, slots and video machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, each of which has gaming machines and table games.

    In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls and the aforementioned mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a parimutuel betting system), there are also 2 horse racing tracks in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd municipality) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

    Given that the market has diminished by more than forty percent in the past few years and with the associated poverty and conflict that has arisen, it isn’t well-known how well the sightseeing industry which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the next few years. How many of the casinos will carry through until conditions improve is simply not known.
