The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the current time, so you could think that there might be very little appetite for supporting Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. In fact, it appears to be operating the opposite way, with the awful market circumstances leading to a bigger eagerness to gamble, to try and discover a quick win, a way out of the crisis.

For almost all of the citizens living on the tiny local wages, there are two popular forms of gambling, the national lottery and Zimbet. Just as with practically everywhere else on the globe, there is a state lottery where the odds of profiting are surprisingly low, but then the winnings are also extremely big. It’s been said by economists who understand the idea that many do not buy a ticket with an actual expectation of profiting. Zimbet is built on either the domestic or the British football divisions and involves predicting the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other shoe, mollycoddle the astonishingly rich of the state and tourists. Up till recently, there was a exceptionally big sightseeing business, based on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The market anxiety and connected bloodshed have carved into this market.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are 2 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 slot machines. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the two of which contain 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, both of which has gaming machines and tables.

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

Seeing as that the market has shrunk by more than 40% in recent years and with the associated deprivation and crime that has cropped up, it is not understood how well the vacationing industry which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the next few years. How many of them will survive till conditions improve is simply not known.
