The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the moment, so you could envision that there might be little affinity for supporting Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. In reality, it seems to be operating the other way, with the atrocious market circumstances creating a higher desire to play, to attempt to locate a fast win, a way from the problems.

For almost all of the citizens surviving on the tiny local money, there are 2 dominant styles of betting, the national lottery and Zimbet. Just as with almost everywhere else on the planet, there is a national lottery where the odds of winning are surprisingly small, but then the prizes are also unbelievably big. It’s been said by economists who look at the subject that the majority do not purchase a ticket with an actual expectation of hitting. Zimbet is based on either the domestic or the UK soccer divisions and involves determining the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other hand, pander to the very rich of the society and travelers. Until a short time ago, there was a very substantial sightseeing business, based on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The market collapse and associated crime have cut into this market.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s casinos, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and slot machines, and the Plumtree gambling den, which has just the slots. 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 gaming tables, slots and video machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the two of which has gaming machines and table games.

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

Since the economy has contracted by more than 40% in the past few years and with the connected poverty and violence that has cropped up, it isn’t understood how healthy the sightseeing business which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the in the years to come. How many of the casinos will be alive until things get better is simply unknown.
