The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the current time, so you might think that there would be little affinity for going to Zimbabwe’s casinos. Actually, it seems to be operating the opposite way, with the atrocious market circumstances leading to a higher ambition to gamble, to try and discover a fast win, a way out of the crisis.

For nearly all of the people surviving on the meager local money, there are 2 common forms of gaming, the national lottery and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else on the planet, there is a national lottery where the odds of hitting are extremely low, but then the jackpots are also surprisingly high. It’s been said by economists who look at the subject that the lion’s share do not buy a ticket with a real belief of profiting. Zimbet is built on either the national or the English soccer leagues and involves determining the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other foot, mollycoddle the astonishingly rich of the state and sightseers. Up till recently, there was a very substantial vacationing industry, based on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic anxiety and associated violence have cut into this trade.

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 Casino, which has only slots. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only slot machines. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the pair of which contain 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, the pair of which has video poker machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

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

Seeing as that the economy has diminished by more than 40 percent in recent years and with the associated deprivation and bloodshed that has resulted, it is not known how healthy the vacationing business which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the near future. How many of the casinos will still be around until conditions improve is merely not known.
