Zimbabwe gambling dens

Wednesday, 19. June 2019

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the moment, so you could imagine that there would be little affinity for going to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. Actually, it appears to be operating the other way around, with the crucial market conditions leading to a greater eagerness to bet, to try and find a quick win, a way from the crisis.

For almost all of the locals living on the tiny nearby earnings, there are two established forms of gambling, the state lotto and Zimbet. Just as with almost everywhere else in the world, there is a state lotto where the chances of hitting are surprisingly low, but then the winnings are also unbelievably large. It’s been said by economists who study the concept that most don’t buy a card with a real expectation of hitting. Zimbet is based on one of the domestic or the British football divisions and involves determining the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other hand, look after the exceedingly rich of the nation and tourists. Until a short while ago, there was a exceptionally big sightseeing business, based on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The economic anxiety and connected crime have carved into this trade.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and slot machines, and the Plumtree Casino, which has only slot machine games. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just one armed bandits. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the two of which offer 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, each of which offer video poker machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the above mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a parimutuel betting system), there are a total of two horse racing complexes in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the market has diminished by more than 40 percent in the past few years and with the associated poverty and crime that has come to pass, it is not known how healthy the vacationing industry which supports Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the near future. How many of them will be alive till conditions get better is simply unknown.
