The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the current time, so you may think that there might be little appetite for patronizing Zimbabwe’s casinos. In reality, it seems to be functioning the other way, with the awful economic circumstances creating a higher ambition to gamble, to try and find a quick win, a way out of the difficulty.

For most of the locals subsisting on the abysmal nearby money, there are 2 established styles of gambling, the state lottery and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else on the globe, there is a state lottery where the probabilities of succeeding are extremely small, but then the prizes are also unbelievably high. It’s been said by financial experts who study the subject that the majority do not purchase a ticket with the rational belief of hitting. Zimbet is built on either the national or the UK football divisions 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 tourists. Up till not long ago, there was a exceptionally large tourist industry, based on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic woes and connected bloodshed have cut into this trade.

Among Zimbabwe’s casinos, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and slot machines, and the Plumtree gambling hall, which has just the slots. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just one armed bandits. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, both of which have table games, slots and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls has 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 casinos and the above alluded to lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a parimutuel betting system), there are a total of 2 horse racing complexes in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second municipality) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the market has shrunk by beyond forty percent in recent years and with the associated deprivation and crime that has arisen, it isn’t well-known how well the sightseeing business which is the foundation for Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the next few years. How many of them will survive until things improve is merely unknown.
