The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the current time, so you may imagine that there might be very little appetite for patronizing Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. Actually, it appears to be working the other way, with the atrocious economic circumstances creating a greater desire to wager, to attempt to discover a quick win, a way out of the problems.

For most of the people surviving on the tiny local earnings, there are 2 dominant types of gambling, the national lotto and Zimbet. Just as with almost everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lottery where the probabilities of succeeding are remarkably low, but then the winnings are also very high. It’s been said by market analysts who understand the idea that the lion’s share do not buy a ticket with an actual belief of hitting. Zimbet is built on one of the local or the British football leagues and involves determining the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other shoe, look after the incredibly rich of the state and tourists. Up till a short time ago, there was a very large tourist industry, based on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic anxiety and associated bloodshed have carved into this market.

Among Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and slot machines, 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, the two of which contain table games, slot machines and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the two of which offer video poker machines and table games.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the aforementioned alluded to lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a parimutuel betting system), there are also two horse racing complexes in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd municipality) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Given that the market has diminished by beyond 40 percent in recent years and with the connected poverty and bloodshed that has resulted, it is not known how well the sightseeing 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 simply not known.
