Zimbabwe gambling dens

Friday, 7. May 2021

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the current time, so you might think that there might be very little desire for visiting Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. In reality, it seems to be functioning the other way, with the desperate economic conditions creating a greater ambition to gamble, to try and find a quick win, a way out of the situation.

For nearly all of the citizens subsisting on the tiny local money, there are 2 common types of gambling, the national lotto and Zimbet. Just as with most everywhere else on the globe, there is a state lotto where the chances of hitting are unbelievably tiny, but then the jackpots are also remarkably large. It’s been said by economists who look at the concept that many don’t buy a ticket with a real assumption of hitting. Zimbet is centered on either the domestic or the United Kingston soccer leagues and involves predicting the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other foot, mollycoddle the exceedingly rich of the state and tourists. Up till not long ago, there was a very large vacationing industry, centered on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic anxiety and connected bloodshed 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 Casino, which has just the slot machines. 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, both of which have table games, slots 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 slot machines and table games.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the above mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a pools system), there are a total of 2 horse racing tracks in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second metropolis) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the market has deflated by more than 40% in the past few years and with the associated deprivation and bloodshed that has arisen, it isn’t understood how healthy the vacationing business which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the in the years to come. How many of the casinos will be alive till conditions get better is simply not known.
