The act of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the moment, so you could envision that there would be very little appetite for patronizing Zimbabwe’s casinos. In reality, it seems to be functioning the other way, with the atrocious market conditions creating a higher ambition to gamble, to attempt to locate a quick win, a way out of the difficulty.

For nearly all of the locals surviving on the abysmal nearby earnings, there are two popular types of wagering, the national lottery and Zimbet. Just as with most everywhere else on the globe, there is a state lotto where the odds of hitting are extremely low, but then the winnings are also unbelievably big. It’s been said by financial experts who study the concept that the lion’s share don’t purchase a ticket with an actual expectation of winning. Zimbet is built on either the national or the United Kingston soccer divisions and involves predicting the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other hand, pander to the astonishingly rich of the society and sightseers. Up till recently, there was a very substantial sightseeing industry, centered on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic collapse and associated bloodshed 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 slot machines, and the Plumtree Casino, which has just the 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 contain table games, slots and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the two of which offer slot machines and table games.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the previously mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a pools system), there are a total of two horse racing complexes in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second metropolis) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the economy has diminished by more than forty percent in the past few years and with the connected poverty and conflict that has resulted, it isn’t well-known how well the tourist business which is the foundation for Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the next few years. How many of them will survive until things improve is simply unknown.
