The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the current time, so you may envision that there would be very little affinity for visiting Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. Actually, it seems to be functioning the other way, with the crucial economic circumstances creating a greater eagerness to play, to try and locate a fast win, a way out of the crisis.

For the majority of the people subsisting on the tiny nearby wages, there are 2 established forms of gambling, the state lottery and Zimbet. Just as with almost everywhere else on the planet, there is a state lottery where the chances of hitting are unbelievably low, but then the winnings are also remarkably high. It’s been said by financial experts who understand the concept that the lion’s share don’t buy a card with the rational belief of profiting. Zimbet is built on either the national or the English football divisions and involves predicting the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other shoe, cater to the extremely rich of the nation and vacationers. Up till a short time ago, there was a very substantial vacationing industry, founded on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The market collapse and connected crime have cut into this trade.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, 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 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, slots and video machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the two of which have gaming machines and tables.

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

Given that the market has shrunk by beyond 40% in the past few years and with the connected deprivation and crime that has resulted, it is not understood how healthy the sightseeing business which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the in the years to come. How many of the casinos will still be around till things get better is simply not known.
