The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the current time, so you might think that there might be little affinity for visiting Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. Actually, it appears to be functioning the other way around, with the desperate market circumstances creating a higher desire to play, to try and discover a quick win, a way out of the problems.

For almost all of the people subsisting on the tiny nearby wages, there are two established types of betting, the state lotto and Zimbet. As with practically everywhere else on the planet, there is a national lottery where the probabilities of winning are remarkably low, but then the jackpots are also very large. It’s been said by economists who study the idea that the lion’s share don’t buy a card with a real expectation of winning. Zimbet is built on either the local or the British football leagues and involves predicting the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other hand, look after the exceedingly rich of the country and vacationers. Up until recently, there was a extremely large vacationing industry, based on safaris and trips 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 five gaming tables and slots, and the Plumtree Casino, which has only slot machine games. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just slot machines. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, both of which contain gaming tables, slots 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 offer video poker machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

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

Given that the market has diminished by more than 40 percent in recent years and with the associated poverty and conflict that has arisen, it is not known how well the sightseeing industry which is the foundation for Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the near future. How many of the casinos will survive till conditions improve is basically not known.
