The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the moment, so you may envision that there might be very little appetite for visiting Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. In reality, it appears to be functioning the other way around, with the crucial market conditions creating a greater desire to wager, to attempt to find a quick win, a way from the difficulty.

For almost all of the citizens subsisting on the meager local money, there are 2 common forms of betting, the national lottery and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lottery where the probabilities of hitting are remarkably small, but then the jackpots are also unbelievably large. It’s been said by economists who look at the situation that the lion’s share do not buy a card with an actual expectation of winning. Zimbet is based on either the domestic or the English football leagues and involves determining the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other shoe, look after the exceedingly rich of the society and travelers. Up until a short time ago, there was a considerably big tourist business, based on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic collapse and connected bloodshed have carved into this trade.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and one armed bandits, and the Plumtree Casino, 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, the pair of which have gaming tables, slots and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, both of which offer gaming machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

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

Since the economy has deflated by more than 40 percent in the past few years and with the associated poverty and crime that has arisen, it is not known how healthy the sightseeing industry 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 basically not known.
