The act of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the moment, so you could think that there might be little desire for supporting Zimbabwe’s casinos. In reality, it appears to be functioning the opposite way around, with the critical economic conditions creating a bigger desire to gamble, to attempt to find a quick win, a way out of the crisis.

For most of the citizens living on the tiny nearby money, there are two dominant styles of wagering, the state lottery and Zimbet. Just as with almost everywhere else on the planet, there is a state lottery where the chances of winning are surprisingly small, but then the prizes are also unbelievably big. It’s been said by economists who understand the concept that most do not buy a ticket with the rational assumption of hitting. Zimbet is built on one of the national or the UK football leagues and involves determining the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other shoe, cater to the exceedingly rich of the society and travelers. Up till a short while ago, there was a considerably large tourist business, centered on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The economic collapse and connected bloodshed have cut into this trade.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, there are 2 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 just the slot machine games. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only 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 houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the pair of which offer video poker machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the aforestated talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a pools system), there are also 2 horse racing complexes in the nation: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the market has deflated by more than 40% in recent years and with the connected poverty and conflict that has come to pass, it isn’t understood how healthy the tourist business which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the next few years. How many of the casinos will carry on till things get better is simply unknown.
