Zimbabwe Casinos

[ English ]

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the current time, so you may envision that there would be little appetite for going to Zimbabwe’s casinos. Actually, it appears to be operating the other way around, with the desperate economic conditions leading to a higher desire to wager, to attempt to discover a quick win, a way from the difficulty.

For most of the people subsisting on the abysmal local wages, there are 2 popular forms of wagering, the national lotto and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else in the world, there is a national lottery where the chances of profiting are surprisingly small, but then the prizes are also very large. It’s been said by financial experts who understand the idea that the majority do not purchase a ticket with a real belief of profiting. Zimbet is built on one of the domestic or the English football divisions and involves determining the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other foot, cater to the considerably rich of the country and tourists. Up until recently, there was a very substantial tourist business, founded on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic woes and connected violence have carved into this market.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 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 just slots. Mutare contains 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, the two of which offer video poker machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the previously mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a pools system), there are also 2 horse racing tracks in the nation: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Given that the market has deflated by beyond 40% in the past few years and with the connected poverty and bloodshed that has come to pass, it isn’t known how healthy the sightseeing industry which funds Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the next few years. How many of the casinos will still be around until things get better is simply unknown.
