The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the current time, so you might imagine that there might be very little desire for supporting Zimbabwe’s casinos. In fact, it seems to be operating the other way, with the atrocious market circumstances creating a higher desire to gamble, to attempt to find a fast win, a way from the crisis.

For the majority of the locals surviving on the abysmal nearby money, there are 2 dominant types of gaming, the state lotto and Zimbet. Just as with most everywhere else in the world, there is a national lotto where the probabilities of profiting are extremely low, but then the jackpots are also remarkably large. It’s been said by economists who study the idea that the lion’s share don’t purchase a card with an actual belief of hitting. Zimbet is founded on either the local or the British soccer divisions and involves determining the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other shoe, pander to the considerably rich of the state and sightseers. Up until a short time ago, there was a very substantial vacationing industry, founded on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The market anxiety and associated violence have cut into this trade.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and one armed bandits, and the Plumtree Casino, which has only slots. 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, slot machines 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 tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the aforestated mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a pools system), there are a total of 2 horse racing complexes in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the market has diminished by more than 40% in the past few years and with the associated poverty and conflict that has come about, it isn’t well-known how well the sightseeing industry which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the near future. How many of the casinos will be alive till conditions get better is merely unknown.
