The act of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the current time, so you could imagine that there might be very little appetite for patronizing Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. Actually, it appears to be operating the other way, with the crucial economic conditions leading to a larger desire to wager, to attempt to locate a fast win, a way out of the crisis.

For many of the citizens subsisting on the tiny nearby earnings, there are 2 popular styles of wagering, the state lotto and Zimbet. As with most everywhere else in the world, there is a national lottery where the chances of succeeding are surprisingly small, but then the jackpots are also unbelievably large. It’s been said by economists who look at the situation that the majority do not purchase a ticket with a real belief of winning. Zimbet is centered on one of the local or the British football leagues and involves determining the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other foot, mollycoddle the extremely rich of the state and sightseers. Up till recently, there was a incredibly substantial sightseeing industry, founded on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic anxiety and connected bloodshed 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 slot machines, and the Plumtree Casino, which has only slot machine games. 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 contain gaming tables, one armed bandits and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, each of which have video poker machines and table games.

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

Since the market has deflated by more than 40 percent in the past few years and with the connected poverty and bloodshed that has resulted, it is not known how well the tourist business which is the foundation for Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the in the years to come. How many of them will carry on until things get better is basically not known.
