Zimbabwe gambling dens

[ English ]

The act of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the moment, so you might think that there might be very little appetite for going to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. In reality, it appears to be functioning the opposite way around, with the crucial market circumstances creating a larger eagerness to bet, to attempt to discover a quick win, a way out of the difficulty.

For many of the locals subsisting on the tiny local wages, there are two popular forms of gaming, the national lottery and Zimbet. Just as with practically everywhere else in the world, there is a national lotto where the probabilities of hitting are unbelievably low, but then the prizes are also very large. It’s been said by market analysts who understand the concept that most don’t purchase a ticket with the rational expectation of profiting. Zimbet is founded on one of the domestic or the UK football leagues and involves predicting the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other shoe, pander to the astonishingly rich of the country and travelers. Up till recently, there was a exceptionally substantial vacationing industry, founded on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic collapse and associated conflict 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 slot machines, and the Plumtree Casino, which has only slot machine games. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just slot machines. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the two of which contain table games, one armed bandits and video machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the two of which offer gaming machines and table games.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the aforementioned alluded to lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a pools system), there are also 2 horse racing tracks in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the economy has contracted by beyond forty percent in recent years and with the associated deprivation and bloodshed that has come to pass, it isn’t understood how healthy the vacationing business which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the in the years to come. How many of them will still be around until conditions get better is basically not known.
