Don’t Have an Alcoholic Beverage … Play! Games Might Cost You An Arm and a Leg
Dec 092019

The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the moment, so you might think that there would be little appetite for patronizing Zimbabwe’s casinos. Actually, it seems to be operating the other way, with the awful market conditions creating a larger eagerness to bet, to try and find a quick win, a way out of the situation.

For many of the people living on the abysmal nearby money, there are 2 common styles of gambling, the state lotto and Zimbet. Just as with most everywhere else in the world, there is a national lottery where the chances of succeeding are unbelievably low, but then the jackpots are also surprisingly high. It’s been said by market analysts who look at the situation that most don’t purchase a ticket with a real expectation of profiting. Zimbet is based on one of the local or the British football divisions and involves determining the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other foot, cater to the considerably rich of the nation and sightseers. Up till a short while ago, there was a very substantial sightseeing industry, founded on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The economic collapse and connected bloodshed have cut 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 slots, and the Plumtree gambling den, which has only slot machines. 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 table games, slot machines and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, both of which have slot machines and tables.

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

Since the market has deflated by beyond forty percent in the past few years and with the associated poverty and violence that has resulted, it is not known how healthy the sightseeing business which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the next few years. How many of them will still be around until things improve is simply unknown.
