Zimbabwe gambling halls

November 3rd, 2021 Leave a comment Go to comments

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the moment, so you could imagine that there might be little appetite for visiting Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. In fact, it seems to be working the other way, with the atrocious market circumstances leading to a bigger desire to bet, to try and find a fast win, a way out of the crisis.

For almost all of the people subsisting on the meager nearby earnings, there are 2 established types of gaming, the state lotto and Zimbet. Just as with practically everywhere else on the globe, there is a state lottery where the probabilities of succeeding are remarkably low, but then the prizes are also remarkably large. It’s been said by financial experts who look at the concept that many don’t purchase a card with the rational expectation of winning. Zimbet is based on one of the domestic or the British soccer divisions and involves predicting the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other hand, cater to the exceedingly rich of the society and travelers. Up till a short time ago, there was a very big tourist industry, founded on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The market woes and connected violence have cut into this trade.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and one armed bandits, and the Plumtree gambling hall, which has only slot machines. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just slots. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, both of which offer gaming tables, 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 has slot machines and table games.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the previously talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a parimutuel betting system), there are also two horse racing complexes in the nation: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd municipality) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Given that the market has diminished by beyond 40% in recent years and with the connected deprivation and crime that has come about, it isn’t known how well the sightseeing business which is the foundation for Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the near future. How many of them will carry through until conditions get better is merely not known.
