• Zimbabwe gambling halls

    [ English ]

    The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the current time, so you could imagine that there would be little desire for going to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. Actually, it seems to be operating the other way around, with the desperate economic conditions leading to a larger eagerness to bet, to try and locate a quick win, a way from the problems.

    For most of the people living on the tiny nearby money, there are 2 dominant styles of betting, the state lottery and Zimbet. As with most everywhere else in the world, there is a state lottery where the chances of succeeding are remarkably small, but then the winnings are also extremely large. It’s been said by economists who look at the idea that the majority don’t purchase a card with a real assumption of hitting. Zimbet is built on either the domestic or the English football divisions and involves determining the results of future matches.

    Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other hand, cater to the extremely rich of the society and tourists. Up till a short while ago, there was a exceptionally big sightseeing business, based on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic woes and associated crime have cut into this market.

    Among Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and slot machines, 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, the pair of which have gaming tables, slots and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, both of which has slot machines and tables.

    In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the above mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a pools system), there are also two horse racing tracks in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second metropolis) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

    Given that the economy has diminished by more than forty percent in recent years and with the connected deprivation and conflict that has arisen, it is not known how well the vacationing industry which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the next few years. How many of the casinos will carry through until conditions improve is merely unknown.
