The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the moment, so you may envision that there might be little appetite for visiting Zimbabwe’s casinos. In fact, it seems to be functioning the opposite way, with the atrocious economic conditions creating a bigger desire to play, to try and discover a quick win, a way from the situation.

For many of the locals subsisting on the tiny nearby earnings, there are two established styles of betting, the state lottery and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else in the world, there is a state lottery where the odds of hitting are extremely small, but then the jackpots are also very big. It’s been said by market analysts who look at the subject that the majority don’t buy a ticket with a real expectation of winning. Zimbet is based on one of the national or the UK football divisions and involves predicting the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other foot, mollycoddle the extremely rich of the state and vacationers. Up until a short time ago, there was a incredibly large sightseeing business, centered on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The market anxiety and connected violence have carved into this market.

Among Zimbabwe’s casinos, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and slots, and the Plumtree gambling hall, which has just the slots. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only slots. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the two of which contain table games, one armed bandits and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the pair of which have video poker machines and tables.

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

Since the market has shrunk by beyond forty percent in recent years and with the connected poverty and crime that has come about, it isn’t understood how well the vacationing business which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the next few years. How many of them will be alive until conditions improve is basically unknown.
