The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the current time, so you might think that there might be very little appetite for visiting Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. Actually, it seems to be functioning the opposite way around, with the awful market circumstances leading to a greater ambition to play, to try and locate a quick win, a way out of the difficulty.

For most of the citizens living on the meager nearby money, there are two popular forms of gaming, the state lottery and Zimbet. As with most everywhere else on the globe, there is a state lottery where the odds of succeeding are unbelievably small, but then the winnings are also extremely large. It’s been said by financial experts who understand the idea that most don’t purchase a ticket with a real expectation of hitting. Zimbet is founded on either the local or the United Kingston football leagues and involves determining the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other hand, pander to the astonishingly rich of the society and tourists. Up until a short time ago, there was a considerably large vacationing industry, founded on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The market collapse and associated conflict have carved into this trade.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, 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 slot machine games. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just slot machines. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, both of which offer table games, one armed bandits and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, each of which have gaming machines and table games.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the aforementioned alluded to lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a parimutuel betting system), there is a total of two horse racing tracks in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the market has deflated by more than 40% in recent years and with the connected poverty and violence that has cropped up, it is not well-known how healthy the vacationing business which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the near future. How many of them will survive until conditions improve is basically not known.
