The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the moment, so you may think that there might be very little appetite for going to Zimbabwe’s casinos. Actually, it appears to be functioning the other way, with the atrocious economic circumstances creating a greater desire to gamble, to attempt to discover a quick win, a way from the situation.

For many of the people subsisting on the abysmal local earnings, there are two common forms of gambling, the state lottery and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else in the world, there is a state lottery where the probabilities of profiting are unbelievably tiny, but then the prizes are also unbelievably high. It’s been said by market analysts who understand the idea that the majority do not buy a ticket with a real expectation of profiting. Zimbet is built on either the national or the British soccer divisions and involves determining the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other shoe, look after the incredibly rich of the state and travelers. Up until a short while ago, there was a very big tourist industry, built on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The market collapse and associated crime have cut into this trade.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and slots, and the Plumtree Casino, which has just the slot machine games. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just slots. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the pair of which have gaming tables, slot machines and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the pair of which has slot machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the above alluded to lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a parimutuel betting system), there are also two horse racing tracks in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd metropolis) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the market has diminished by more than forty percent in recent years and with the associated deprivation and crime that has come about, it is not understood how well the sightseeing business which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the near future. How many of the casinos will survive till things improve is basically unknown.
