The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the current time, so you might imagine that there would be very little desire for going to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. Actually, it seems to be working the other way, with the desperate market conditions leading to a greater desire to gamble, to attempt to find a fast win, a way out of the difficulty.

For the majority of the people surviving on the tiny nearby earnings, there are 2 common styles of gambling, the national lottery and Zimbet. Just as with almost everywhere else in the world, there is a state lottery where the odds of succeeding are remarkably small, but then the winnings are also remarkably high. It’s been said by financial experts who understand the concept that the lion’s share do not purchase a ticket with the rational assumption of winning. Zimbet is based on one of the domestic or the UK football divisions and involves determining the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other foot, pamper the astonishingly rich of the state and sightseers. Up until recently, there was a exceptionally big sightseeing business, centered on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The market collapse and connected crime have carved into this market.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s casinos, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and slot machines, and the Plumtree Casino, which has just the slot machine games. 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 gaming tables, one armed bandits and video machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, each of which offer gaming machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the aforestated mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a pools system), there are also 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 contracted by more than 40 percent in the past few years and with the connected deprivation and bloodshed that has resulted, it isn’t understood how healthy the sightseeing business which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the near future. How many of them will survive until things get better is simply unknown.
