The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the current time, so you may envision that there might be little desire for visiting Zimbabwe’s casinos. In reality, it seems to be functioning the other way, with the critical economic conditions leading to a larger ambition to play, to attempt to locate a quick win, a way from the problems.

For most of the citizens surviving on the meager local money, there are 2 established styles of wagering, the national lottery and Zimbet. Just as with almost everywhere else on the globe, there is a state lottery where the probabilities of succeeding are remarkably low, but then the jackpots are also extremely big. It’s been said by market analysts who study the subject that most don’t buy a ticket with an actual assumption of hitting. Zimbet is based on one of the local or the English football leagues and involves predicting the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other hand, pander to the incredibly rich of the nation and vacationers. Until not long ago, there was a considerably large vacationing industry, built on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The market collapse and connected violence have cut into this market.

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

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the above mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a pools system), there are a total of two horse racing tracks in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd municipality) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the economy has shrunk by beyond 40% in recent years and with the connected poverty and conflict that has come about, it is not known how healthy the vacationing business which funds Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the next few years. How many of them will survive till conditions get better is simply unknown.
