The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the moment, so you might think that there might be little affinity for patronizing Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. Actually, it appears to be functioning the opposite way around, with the critical market circumstances leading to a greater eagerness to play, to try and find a quick win, a way from the difficulty.

For nearly all of the locals surviving on the abysmal local wages, there are two established styles of wagering, the state lotto and Zimbet. Just as with most everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lotto where the chances of winning are unbelievably tiny, but then the prizes are also very large. It’s been said by economists who look at the subject that most do not buy a ticket with a real expectation of winning. Zimbet is centered on one of the national or the English soccer divisions and involves predicting the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other hand, look after the exceedingly rich of the society and tourists. Up till recently, there was a considerably large vacationing industry, built on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic anxiety and connected conflict have cut into this trade.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s casinos, 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 gambling den, which has only slots. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just slot machines. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the pair of which offer gaming tables, one armed bandits and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, both of which has video poker machines and table games.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the above mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a pools system), there are a total of two horse racing tracks in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second metropolis) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the economy has contracted by beyond 40 percent in the past few years and with the connected deprivation and crime that has resulted, it is not known how well the tourist industry which is the foundation for Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the in the years to come. How many of the casinos will survive until things get better is basically not known.
