The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the current time, so you might think that there would be very little appetite for visiting Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. Actually, it seems to be functioning the opposite way around, with the atrocious economic circumstances leading to a higher ambition to wager, to try and find a fast win, a way out of the difficulty.

For nearly all of the citizens subsisting on the tiny nearby earnings, there are two established types of gaming, the state lottery and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else in the world, there is a national lottery where the odds of winning are extremely tiny, but then the winnings are also remarkably large. It’s been said by market analysts who look at the idea that the majority do not buy a ticket with a real assumption of hitting. Zimbet is built on one of the national or the British soccer leagues and involves determining the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other hand, pander to the astonishingly rich of the society and travelers. Up till a short while ago, there was a considerably big tourist business, founded on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The market collapse and associated crime have cut into this trade.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s casinos, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and slots, and the Plumtree gambling hall, 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, the two of which offer gaming tables, one armed bandits and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the pair of which have slot machines and tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the above talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a pools system), there are a total of 2 horse racing complexes in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd municipality) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the market has diminished by beyond 40 percent in the past few years and with the associated poverty and conflict that has arisen, it is not well-known how healthy the tourist business which supports Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the next few years. How many of the casinos will carry on till conditions get better is merely not known.
