Zimbabwe Casinos

[ English ]

The act of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the moment, so you might imagine that there would be very little desire for supporting Zimbabwe’s casinos. Actually, it seems to be working the opposite way around, with the awful market conditions leading to a greater ambition to bet, to try and locate a quick win, a way from the situation.

For the majority of the citizens subsisting on the meager local money, there are 2 popular styles of gambling, the state lottery and Zimbet. Just as with almost everywhere else on the planet, there is a national lottery where the probabilities of succeeding are surprisingly tiny, but then the winnings are also very high. It’s been said by market analysts who study the idea that most do not purchase a card with an actual assumption of winning. Zimbet is based on one of the local or the United Kingston soccer divisions and involves determining the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other hand, pander to the very rich of the country and tourists. Up until a short time ago, there was a very big tourist industry, based on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The market woes and associated crime have cut 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 slots, and the Plumtree gambling hall, which has only slot machine games. 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 contain table games, one armed bandits and video machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the two of which has video poker machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the aforestated alluded to 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 municipality) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the market has deflated by more than 40 percent in the past few years and with the associated deprivation and crime that has arisen, it isn’t well-known how healthy the tourist industry which is the foundation for Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the in the years to come. How many of them will carry on until things improve is basically unknown.
