The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the moment, so you may envision that there might be little desire for going to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. In fact, it seems to be working the opposite way around, with the critical economic circumstances creating a greater desire to play, to try and discover a quick win, a way out of the problems.

For nearly all of the citizens surviving on the meager nearby earnings, there are 2 popular styles of wagering, the national lottery and Zimbet. Just as with most everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lottery where the odds of succeeding are extremely tiny, but then the jackpots are also very big. It’s been said by market analysts who study the subject that the lion’s share don’t buy a card with the rational expectation of profiting. Zimbet is built on one of the domestic or the English soccer leagues and involves determining the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other hand, pander to the considerably rich of the nation and sightseers. Up until a short time ago, there was a very substantial sightseeing business, based on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The market anxiety and associated violence have cut 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 slot machine games. 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 offer table games, slots and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, both of which offer video poker machines and tables.

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

Since the economy has shrunk by more than 40 percent in recent years and with the connected poverty and violence that has arisen, it isn’t understood how well the sightseeing industry which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the next few years. How many of them will survive until things get better is simply not known.
