• Zimbabwe gambling dens

    The act of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the moment, so you may imagine that there would be little desire for supporting Zimbabwe’s casinos. In fact, it seems to be working the other way, with the atrocious economic conditions creating a higher ambition to play, to attempt to find a fast win, a way out of the situation.

    For the majority of the people subsisting on the tiny nearby wages, there are two established styles of betting, the state lotto and Zimbet. Just as with most everywhere else in the world, there is a national lotto where the probabilities of winning are surprisingly tiny, but then the jackpots are also remarkably high. It’s been said by market analysts who study the subject that many don’t buy a card with a real assumption of hitting. Zimbet is founded on either the domestic or the UK soccer leagues and involves determining the outcomes of future matches.

    Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other foot, mollycoddle the exceedingly rich of the nation and tourists. Until recently, there was a considerably substantial vacationing business, centered on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The market woes and associated bloodshed have carved into this market.

    Among Zimbabwe’s casinos, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and slots, and the Plumtree Casino, which has only slot machine games. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only slot machines. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, both of which have table games, slot machines and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, both of which has video poker machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

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

    Since the economy has diminished by more than 40% in the past few years and with the associated poverty and conflict that has resulted, it is not known how healthy the vacationing industry which funds Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the next few years. How many of the casinos will carry on until conditions improve is merely not known.
