The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the current time, so you could think that there might be very little appetite for supporting Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. In fact, it seems to be working the opposite way around, with the desperate market conditions leading to a greater desire to play, to try and discover a quick win, a way from the problems.

For many of the citizens subsisting on the tiny local earnings, there are 2 popular styles of gambling, the national lottery and Zimbet. As with most everywhere else on the planet, there is a state lotto where the chances of hitting are remarkably tiny, but then the prizes are also remarkably high. It’s been said by market analysts who study the idea that most don’t purchase a ticket with the rational belief of hitting. Zimbet is built on one of the local or the United Kingston football leagues and involves predicting the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other shoe, look after the considerably rich of the state and travelers. Until a short while ago, there was a very substantial tourist business, based on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The market anxiety and associated conflict have carved into this market.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and slot machines, and the Plumtree gambling den, which has just the slot machines. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only slot machines. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the two of which contain gaming tables, one armed bandits and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, each of which have slot machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls and the previously alluded to lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a parimutuel betting system), there is a total of 2 horse racing complexes in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second municipality) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the economy has diminished by beyond forty percent in the past few years and with the connected poverty and bloodshed that has come about, it is not well-known how well the tourist industry which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the near future. How many of them will still be around till conditions get better is merely unknown.
