The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the moment, so you may imagine that there might be little desire for supporting Zimbabwe’s casinos. Actually, it seems to be operating the opposite way around, with the awful market circumstances leading to a larger ambition to play, to try and locate a fast win, a way from the problems.

For the majority of the locals surviving on the tiny nearby earnings, there are two common forms of gaming, the state lotto and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else on the globe, there is a state lottery where the odds of hitting are unbelievably tiny, but then the prizes are also unbelievably big. It’s been said by economists who study the situation that the lion’s share don’t purchase a ticket with the rational expectation of hitting. Zimbet is founded on either the domestic or the British soccer leagues and involves predicting the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other foot, pamper the very rich of the nation and travelers. Up until a short time ago, there was a incredibly large vacationing business, based on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic anxiety and associated bloodshed have cut into this market.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and slots, and the Plumtree gambling hall, which has just the slot machine games. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just slots. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the pair of which offer table games, slots and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, both of which offer video poker machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

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

Since the market has shrunk by beyond forty percent in the past few years and with the connected deprivation and bloodshed that has arisen, it is not known how well the tourist industry which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the near future. How many of the casinos will carry through till things get better is merely unknown.
