The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the moment, so you might imagine that there would be very little desire for supporting Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. In reality, it appears to be functioning the other way around, with the crucial economic conditions leading to a greater eagerness to play, to attempt to find a fast win, a way out of the difficulty.

For many of the citizens surviving on the abysmal nearby money, there are two popular types of gambling, the national lottery and Zimbet. As with practically everywhere else on the planet, there is a national lotto where the odds of winning are extremely low, but then the prizes are also remarkably high. It’s been said by economists who study the idea that the lion’s share don’t purchase a card with a real assumption of profiting. Zimbet is based on one of the local or the British football leagues and involves predicting the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other foot, pander to the very rich of the society and tourists. Up till not long ago, there was a extremely big sightseeing business, based on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The market collapse and associated conflict have carved into this trade.

Among Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and slot machines, and the Plumtree gambling den, which has only slot machines. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only slots. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, both of which contain gaming tables, slot machines and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the pair of which offer gaming machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

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

Given that the economy has diminished by more than forty percent in the past few years and with the connected deprivation and violence that has cropped up, it is not known how healthy the tourist business which funds Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the next few years. How many of them will carry on till things improve is basically unknown.
