The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the moment, so you might imagine that there might be little affinity for supporting Zimbabwe’s casinos. Actually, it seems to be functioning the opposite way, with the desperate economic conditions leading to a greater eagerness to bet, to try and discover a fast win, a way from the difficulty.

For the majority of the people living on the abysmal nearby earnings, there are 2 established forms of gaming, the national lotto and Zimbet. Just as with most everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lottery where the probabilities of succeeding are unbelievably low, but then the jackpots are also very large. It’s been said by economists who look at the situation that most do not purchase a ticket with a real belief of winning. Zimbet is built on one of the local or the UK soccer leagues and involves determining the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other foot, pander to the considerably rich of the state and sightseers. Up till not long ago, there was a extremely big sightseeing business, built on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The market anxiety and connected bloodshed have cut into this trade.

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

Since the market has shrunk by more than 40% in the past few years and with the associated poverty and crime that has arisen, it is not known how healthy the tourist industry which is the foundation for Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the next few years. How many of them will be alive till things improve is basically unknown.
