Zimbabwe Casinos

The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the moment, so you may imagine that there would be very little appetite for patronizing Zimbabwe's gambling dens. In fact, it seems to be operating the opposite way around, with the awful economic circumstances creating a greater ambition to wager, to try and find a quick win, a way from the situation.

For many of the citizens surviving on the tiny local wages, there are two established styles of gambling, the national lottery and Zimbet. As with practically everywhere else on the globe, there is a state lottery where the chances of profiting are extremely low, but then the jackpots are also unbelievably large. It's been said by economists who look at the subject that the lion's share do not buy a card with an actual belief of profiting. Zimbet is based on either the national or the UK soccer leagues and involves predicting the results of future games.

Zimbabwe's casinos, on the other hand, cater to the exceedingly rich of the society and travelers. Until not long ago, there was a very big vacationing industry, founded on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The market woes and connected crime have cut into this market.

Among Zimbabwe's casinos, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and slot machines, and the Plumtree Casino, which has just the slot machines. 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, both of which offer table games, slot machines and video machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the pair of which offer gaming machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe's gambling halls and the aforementioned talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a pools system), there are also 2 horse racing complexes in the nation: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the market has shrunk by beyond 40% in the past few years and with the associated poverty and violence that has arisen, it is not known how healthy the sightseeing business which supports Zimbabwe's gambling halls will do in the near future. How many of the casinos will still be around till things get better is basically not known.
