Zimbabwe gambling dens

December 28th, 2021 Leave a comment Go to comments

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the current time, so you may imagine that there would be little desire for visiting Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. Actually, it appears to be working the other way around, with the desperate market circumstances leading to a higher ambition to gamble, to attempt to discover a quick win, a way from the difficulty.

For most of the citizens living on the meager nearby wages, there are 2 common forms of gaming, the national lotto and Zimbet. Just as with practically everywhere else in the world, there is a state lottery where the odds of winning are surprisingly tiny, but then the prizes are also very large. It’s been said by financial experts who study the concept that the lion’s share do not purchase a ticket with an actual belief of winning. Zimbet is founded on either the local or the British soccer divisions and involves determining the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other shoe, pamper the very rich of the society and sightseers. Until recently, there was a incredibly large tourist business, centered on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic anxiety and connected crime have cut into this trade.

Among Zimbabwe’s casinos, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and slot machines, and the Plumtree gambling hall, which has just the slots. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only slot machines. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the two of which have table games, one armed bandits and video machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, both of which have gaming machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

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

Seeing as that the market has contracted by more than 40% in the past few years and with the associated poverty and bloodshed that has come about, it is not known how well the sightseeing business which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the in the years to come. How many of the casinos will survive till conditions get better is basically not known.
