The act of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the moment, so you may envision that there might be very little affinity for patronizing Zimbabwe’s casinos. In fact, it seems to be functioning the opposite way around, with the atrocious economic circumstances leading to a larger desire to bet, to attempt to discover a fast win, a way out of the situation.

For many of the people subsisting on the abysmal nearby money, there are two popular types of gambling, the national lotto and Zimbet. Just as with most everywhere else on the planet, there is a national lottery where the chances of winning are surprisingly small, but then the winnings are also extremely high. It’s been said by economists who study the concept that the majority do not buy a card with the rational expectation of winning. Zimbet is centered on either the local or the British soccer leagues and involves determining the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other shoe, pamper the very rich of the society and travelers. Up until a short time ago, there was a incredibly large tourist industry, built on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The economic woes and associated bloodshed have carved into this market.

Among Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and one armed bandits, and the Plumtree gambling hall, which has only slot machine games. 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 houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, both of which have slot machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the above mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a pools system), there is a total of 2 horse racing complexes in the nation: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd municipality) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the market has deflated by more than 40 percent in the past few years and with the associated poverty and conflict that has resulted, it isn’t understood how well the tourist industry which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the in the years to come. How many of them will survive until conditions improve is merely not known.
