Zimbabwe Casinos

Tuesday, 16. August 2022

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the moment, so you may envision that there might be little affinity for patronizing Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. In fact, it seems to be working the opposite way around, with the awful economic circumstances creating a greater eagerness to wager, to try and find a quick win, a way from the difficulty.

For almost all of the locals surviving on the tiny nearby earnings, there are 2 established types of gaming, the state lottery and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lottery where the odds of hitting are extremely low, but then the jackpots are also very large. It’s been said by economists who understand the idea that the majority don’t purchase a ticket with a real belief of hitting. Zimbet is based on either the national or the UK soccer divisions and involves predicting the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other shoe, pamper the incredibly rich of the state and vacationers. Up till not long ago, there was a very substantial sightseeing industry, built on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The economic woes and associated violence have carved into this market.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s casinos, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and one armed bandits, and the Plumtree Casino, which has only slots. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only slot machines. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the pair of which have gaming tables, one armed bandits 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 have video poker machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the aforestated mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a pools system), there are also 2 horse racing complexes in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second metropolis) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the market has deflated by more than 40% in recent years and with the connected poverty and violence that has come to pass, it is not known how well the tourist industry which is the foundation for Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the near future. How many of them will survive until conditions get better is simply not known.
