Zimbabwe gambling dens

[ English ]

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the current time, so you could think that there might be very little desire for visiting Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. In reality, it seems to be working the other way around, with the crucial economic circumstances leading to a larger ambition to wager, to try and locate a quick win, a way from the situation.

For many of the citizens living on the meager nearby money, there are two dominant forms of gaming, the state lotto and Zimbet. As with most everywhere else on the planet, there is a national lottery where the probabilities of profiting are remarkably low, but then the jackpots are also unbelievably big. It’s been said by economists who look at the situation that many don’t buy a ticket with an actual assumption of winning. Zimbet is centered on one of the national or the English soccer divisions and involves determining the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other hand, pamper the exceedingly rich of the nation and sightseers. Up till a short time ago, there was a very big vacationing business, founded on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The market woes and associated bloodshed have carved into this trade.

Among Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and one armed bandits, and the Plumtree Casino, which has only slot machine games. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only slots. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the pair of which have gaming tables, one armed bandits 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 have gaming machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

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

Given that the economy has shrunk by beyond forty percent in the past few years and with the connected poverty and bloodshed that has come about, it isn’t known how healthy the tourist business which is the foundation for Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the next few years. How many of the casinos will still be around until conditions get better is merely not known.
