The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the moment, so you may imagine that there might be very little affinity for going to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. Actually, it appears to be working the opposite way, with the awful economic conditions creating a larger ambition to play, to try and discover a fast win, a way out of the situation.

For most of the people living on the meager nearby earnings, there are two popular forms of betting, the state lottery and Zimbet. Just as with practically everywhere else on the planet, there is a national lottery where the probabilities of succeeding are unbelievably small, but then the winnings are also unbelievably large. It’s been said by market analysts who look at the subject that the majority don’t purchase a card with an actual expectation of hitting. Zimbet is based on either the local or the British soccer leagues and involves determining the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other shoe, pamper the exceedingly rich of the state and tourists. Until recently, there was a considerably big sightseeing business, based on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic anxiety and associated conflict have cut into this trade.

Among Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and slot machines, and the Plumtree gambling hall, which has only slot machine games. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just one armed bandits. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, both of which offer gaming tables, slot machines and video machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the two of which has gaming machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

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

Seeing as that the market has deflated by more than 40% in the past few years and with the associated poverty and crime that has arisen, it is not known how well the tourist business which funds Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the in the years to come. How many of the casinos will survive till conditions get better is basically unknown.
