The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the moment, so you could envision that there might be very little desire for visiting Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. Actually, it appears to be operating the other way, with the crucial market conditions creating a greater desire to play, to try and discover a quick win, a way from the situation.

For nearly all of the citizens surviving on the abysmal local wages, there are 2 common styles of betting, the state lotto and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else in the world, there is a national lottery where the probabilities of hitting are unbelievably tiny, but then the winnings are also remarkably big. It’s been said by market analysts who look at the idea that many don’t buy a ticket with a real expectation of profiting. Zimbet is founded on either the domestic or the English football leagues and involves predicting the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other shoe, cater to the very rich of the state and vacationers. Until not long ago, there was a very big tourist industry, built on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The market woes and associated violence have carved into this market.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and slot machines, and the Plumtree gambling den, which has only slot machine games. 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 pair of which offer table games, slot machines and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, each of which has gaming machines and tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the aforementioned 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 second metropolis) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the market has contracted by more than forty percent in the past few years and with the associated poverty and crime that has come to pass, it isn’t well-known how healthy the vacationing business which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the next few years. How many of the casinos will carry on till things get better is merely not known.
