The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the current time, so you may think that there might be little desire for going to Zimbabwe’s casinos. In reality, it appears to be operating the other way around, with the critical economic circumstances leading to a larger desire to gamble, to try and discover a quick win, a way from the problems.

For almost all of the people surviving on the meager nearby money, there are two dominant styles of gaming, the national lotto and Zimbet. Just as with most everywhere else in the world, there is a national lottery where the chances of succeeding are extremely low, but then the jackpots are also surprisingly high. It’s been said by market analysts who understand the situation that the lion’s share do not buy a card with a real expectation of winning. Zimbet is built on one of the national or the British soccer leagues and involves determining the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other hand, cater to the extremely rich of the country and tourists. Up until a short while ago, there was a extremely large vacationing industry, based on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The market anxiety and associated violence have cut into this trade.

Among Zimbabwe’s casinos, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and one armed bandits, and the Plumtree Casino, which has only slots. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just slots. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, both of which have table games, slots and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the two of which have gaming machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls and the aforementioned alluded to lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a pools system), there is a total of 2 horse racing complexes in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second metropolis) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Given that the market has contracted by beyond 40% in the past few years and with the connected deprivation and crime that has come to pass, it is not known how well the vacationing business which supports Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the near future. How many of them will still be around till conditions get better is merely unknown.
