The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the moment, so you may imagine that there would be little appetite for visiting Zimbabwe’s casinos. Actually, it seems to be functioning the other way, with the desperate market conditions creating a greater eagerness to play, to attempt to locate a quick win, a way out of the crisis.

For most of the locals living on the abysmal nearby money, there are two common styles of wagering, the national lottery and Zimbet. Just as with most everywhere else in the world, there is a state lotto where the odds of hitting are unbelievably low, but then the jackpots are also surprisingly high. It’s been said by market analysts who study the situation that the lion’s share do not purchase a card with an actual assumption of winning. Zimbet is based on one of the local or the English football divisions and involves determining the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other shoe, look after the very rich of the state and travelers. Until a short time ago, there was a incredibly big sightseeing industry, based on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The economic anxiety and connected conflict have cut 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 one armed bandits, and the Plumtree Casino, which has only slot machines. 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 table games, slots and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the pair of which has gaming machines and tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the previously alluded to lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a pools system), there is a total of two horse racing tracks in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the market has shrunk by more than forty percent in recent years and with the connected poverty and violence that has resulted, it isn’t well-known how well the vacationing business which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the next few years. How many of the casinos will carry through until things improve is basically not known.
