Zimbabwe gambling dens

March 13th, 2016 Leave a comment Go to comments

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the current time, so you might imagine that there might be little desire for going to Zimbabwe’s casinos. In reality, it appears to be operating the other way, with the crucial economic conditions leading to a larger desire to play, to try and locate a quick win, a way out of the problems.

For nearly all of the citizens subsisting on the tiny local money, there are two popular types of wagering, the state lotto and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else in the world, there is a national lotto where the odds of succeeding are extremely tiny, but then the winnings are also remarkably big. It’s been said by economists who understand the subject that most do not purchase a card with the rational expectation of winning. Zimbet is based on either the national or the English soccer divisions and involves predicting the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other foot, cater to the considerably rich of the state and vacationers. Up till a short while ago, there was a incredibly substantial tourist industry, founded on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic woes and connected crime have carved into this trade.

Among Zimbabwe’s casinos, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and slot machines, and the Plumtree gambling den, which has just the slots. 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 two of which contain table games, one armed bandits and video machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the two of which has slot machines and tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the aforestated alluded to lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a parimutuel betting system), there are a total of two horse racing complexes in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second metropolis) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the economy has shrunk by beyond 40 percent in the past few years and with the connected poverty and bloodshed that has come about, it is not known how healthy the tourist industry which funds Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the near future. How many of them will carry on till things get better is simply not known.
