The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the moment, so you may think that there would be little appetite for supporting Zimbabwe’s casinos. In reality, it appears to be operating the opposite way around, with the desperate economic circumstances leading to a bigger desire to gamble, to attempt to find a quick win, a way from the problems.

For the majority of the people subsisting on the meager local wages, there are 2 popular types of gaming, the state lotto and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else in the world, there is a national lotto where the probabilities of winning are extremely low, but then the jackpots are also very big. It’s been said by financial experts who look at the concept that most don’t purchase a card with the rational assumption of profiting. Zimbet is founded on either the national or the English soccer leagues and involves predicting the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other hand, pamper the incredibly rich of the society and tourists. Until not long ago, there was a incredibly big vacationing industry, built on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The market woes and connected conflict 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 five gaming tables and slot machines, and the Plumtree gambling den, which has just the slot machines. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only one armed bandits. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the two 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 two of which have slot machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the aforestated mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a pools system), there are also 2 horse racing tracks in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd metropolis) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the economy has deflated by beyond 40 percent in the past few years and with the associated deprivation and conflict that has resulted, it is not understood how well the tourist business which funds Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the near future. How many of the casinos will carry on until things improve is merely not known.
