The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the current time, so you could think that there might be very little affinity for visiting Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. In fact, it seems to be functioning the opposite way, with the atrocious economic conditions leading to a higher desire to wager, to attempt to find a quick win, a way from the situation.

For many of the citizens surviving on the tiny nearby earnings, there are two established forms of wagering, the national lottery and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else on the planet, there is a state lottery where the chances of hitting are unbelievably low, but then the winnings are also unbelievably high. It’s been said by economists who understand the subject that many do not purchase a card with the rational belief of hitting. Zimbet is built on one of the domestic or the English soccer leagues and involves determining the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other shoe, cater to the incredibly rich of the nation and tourists. Up until a short time ago, there was a incredibly big tourist business, based on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The economic woes and associated violence have cut into this trade.

Among Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, 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 just the slot machine games. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only slot machines. Mutare contains 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, each of which has gaming machines and tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the aforementioned mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a parimutuel betting system), there are also 2 horse racing complexes in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second metropolis) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the market has diminished by more than 40% in the past few years and with the connected deprivation and violence that has come about, it is not understood how well the vacationing industry which funds Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the in the years to come. How many of the casinos will be alive till things get better is merely unknown.
