The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the moment, so you could imagine that there would be little affinity for supporting Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. In fact, it appears to be operating the opposite way around, with the crucial economic circumstances creating a greater desire to bet, to attempt to find a fast win, a way from the crisis.

For many of the people living on the tiny local wages, there are two established types of gambling, the national lottery and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else in the world, there is a state lotto where the odds of winning are extremely small, but then the prizes are also remarkably big. It’s been said by market analysts who look at the concept that many don’t purchase a ticket with a real belief of hitting. Zimbet is built on one of the domestic or the British soccer divisions and involves determining the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other shoe, look after the very rich of the country and sightseers. Up till a short while ago, there was a incredibly substantial sightseeing industry, based on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The market anxiety and associated violence have cut into this trade.

Among Zimbabwe’s casinos, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and slots, and the Plumtree Casino, which has just the slot machine games. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just one armed bandits. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, both of which have table games, slots and video machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, each of which has video poker machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the previously talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a parimutuel betting system), there are a total of two horse racing complexes in the nation: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the market has deflated by more than 40 percent in recent years and with the connected deprivation and violence that has come to pass, it is not well-known how well the tourist business which funds Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the in the years to come. How many of the casinos will carry on till conditions get better is basically unknown.
