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 very little appetite for supporting Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. In fact, it seems to be working the opposite way around, with the awful economic circumstances leading to a greater desire to gamble, to attempt to find a fast win, a way from the difficulty.

For many of the citizens subsisting on the meager local money, there are 2 dominant forms of gambling, the national lottery and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else on the planet, there is a national lottery where the odds of profiting are extremely low, but then the winnings are also very large. It’s been said by market analysts who study the concept that most don’t purchase a card with the rational assumption of winning. Zimbet is centered on either the national or the English football leagues and involves predicting the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other hand, pamper the exceedingly rich of the state and travelers. Up till a short while ago, there was a very big vacationing industry, founded on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The market anxiety and connected crime have carved into this market.

Among Zimbabwe’s casinos, 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 just the slot machines. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just one armed bandits. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the pair of which have table games, slot machines and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the pair of which has video poker machines and table games.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the aforestated mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a pools system), there are a total of two horse racing complexes in the nation: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second municipality) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the economy has shrunk by more than 40 percent in the past few years and with the connected poverty and violence that has cropped up, it isn’t known how well the sightseeing business which supports Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the next few years. How many of them will be alive until things get better is merely not known.
