The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the moment, so you could envision that there might be very little affinity for visiting Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. In fact, it appears to be operating the opposite way around, with the desperate market circumstances creating a greater eagerness to play, to attempt to locate a fast win, a way out of the difficulty.

For many of the citizens living on the abysmal local wages, there are two popular styles of betting, the national lottery and Zimbet. As with practically everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lotto where the chances of profiting are surprisingly low, but then the prizes are also very large. It’s been said by economists who study the situation that the majority do not buy a card with the rational expectation of winning. Zimbet is based on one of the domestic or the UK football leagues and involves predicting the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other foot, cater to the very rich of the country and sightseers. Up until not long ago, there was a incredibly substantial sightseeing industry, founded on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The market anxiety and connected bloodshed have carved into this trade.

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

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the aforementioned alluded to lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a parimutuel betting system), there is a total of 2 horse racing complexes in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the market has contracted by more than 40% in recent years and with the connected poverty and bloodshed that has come to pass, it is not well-known how well the tourist industry which is the foundation for Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the near future. How many of the casinos will be alive till things improve is simply unknown.
