The act of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the moment, so you could imagine that there might be very little appetite for going to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. In fact, it seems to be functioning the opposite way around, with the desperate economic conditions creating a bigger eagerness to play, to attempt to discover a quick win, a way from the difficulty.

For almost all of the citizens subsisting on the tiny nearby earnings, there are 2 common types of betting, the state lotto and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lotto where the probabilities of hitting are surprisingly low, but then the winnings are also surprisingly high. It’s been said by economists who look at the concept that many don’t buy a ticket with the rational belief of hitting. Zimbet is based on one of the domestic or the United Kingston soccer leagues and involves determining the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other foot, look after the incredibly rich of the nation and travelers. Up till a short while ago, there was a very substantial sightseeing industry, based on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic collapse and associated violence have cut into this market.

Among Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and slots, and the Plumtree Casino, which has only slots. 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 gaming tables, slot machines and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, each of which has video poker machines and tables.

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

Seeing as that the economy has deflated by beyond forty percent in recent years and with the connected poverty and crime that has come about, it isn’t known how healthy the vacationing business which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the next few years. How many of the casinos will survive until conditions get better is merely not known.
