Zimbabwe Casinos

Monday, 9. December 2019

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the current time, so you might imagine that there might be very little appetite for supporting Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. In fact, it appears to be working the other way around, with the atrocious economic conditions leading to a greater eagerness to play, to try and find a quick win, a way from the crisis.

For many of the people surviving on the meager nearby money, there are 2 dominant types of gambling, the state lottery and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else in the world, there is a national lottery where the probabilities of profiting are surprisingly small, but then the prizes are also unbelievably big. It’s been said by market analysts who look at the subject that the majority don’t purchase a ticket with a real belief of winning. Zimbet is centered on either the domestic or the UK soccer leagues and involves predicting the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other shoe, mollycoddle the extremely rich of the nation and travelers. Up till not long ago, there was a exceptionally large tourist business, founded on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The market collapse and connected bloodshed have carved into this market.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s casinos, 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 gambling den, which has only slot machines. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only slots. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the pair of which offer table games, slots and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, each of which offer gaming machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the previously talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a parimutuel betting system), there are a total of 2 horse racing complexes in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the market has deflated by more than 40% in recent years and with the associated deprivation and crime that has resulted, it is not understood how well the tourist business which supports Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the near future. How many of them will be alive until things get better is merely unknown.
