The act of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the moment, so you could imagine that there would be little affinity for supporting Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. In reality, it seems to be working the opposite way around, with the desperate economic conditions creating a greater eagerness to gamble, to try and discover a quick win, a way out of the difficulty.

For many of the citizens living on the abysmal nearby wages, there are two common types of gaming, the state lottery and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else on the globe, there is a state lotto where the chances of succeeding are surprisingly small, but then the jackpots are also very large. It’s been said by market analysts who look at the concept that the majority do not buy a card with an actual belief of profiting. Zimbet is centered on either the national or the English football leagues and involves predicting the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other hand, pamper the astonishingly rich of the society and tourists. Up until a short time ago, there was a very substantial vacationing business, based on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic woes and connected violence have carved into this market.

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 just slots. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the pair of which offer gaming tables, 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 has slot machines and tables.

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 2 horse racing tracks in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd municipality) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Given that the market has shrunk by more than forty percent in recent years and with the connected poverty and bloodshed that has come to pass, it is not known how well the sightseeing business which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the near future. How many of them will carry through till things improve is simply not known.
