The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the moment, so you may envision that there would be very little affinity for patronizing Zimbabwe’s casinos. In fact, it appears to be functioning the other way, with the desperate economic circumstances leading to a greater eagerness to play, to attempt to discover a quick win, a way from the difficulty.

For most of the citizens living on the tiny local money, there are 2 common forms of betting, the state lotto and Zimbet. Just as with most everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lottery where the chances of profiting are extremely small, but then the winnings are also remarkably high. It’s been said by financial experts who understand the subject that most do not purchase a ticket with the rational assumption of winning. Zimbet is based on either the national or the United Kingston soccer divisions and involves predicting the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other shoe, cater to the considerably rich of the nation and vacationers. Up until a short time ago, there was a extremely substantial tourist industry, centered on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The market woes and connected violence have carved into this market.

Among Zimbabwe’s casinos, 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 gambling den, which has only slots. 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 offer table games, one armed bandits and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the two of which have gaming machines and tables.

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

Since the economy has deflated by more than 40 percent in recent years and with the connected deprivation and crime that has cropped up, it is not well-known how well the tourist business which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the next few years. How many of them will carry on till conditions improve is simply not known.
