The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the moment, so you could imagine that there might be very little affinity for supporting Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. In reality, it seems to be functioning the opposite way around, with the atrocious market conditions leading to a larger ambition to wager, to attempt to find a fast win, a way from the difficulty.

For many of the people subsisting on the abysmal nearby money, there are 2 established types of wagering, the state lotto and Zimbet. Just as with practically everywhere else in the world, there is a national lotto where the odds of succeeding are remarkably small, but then the jackpots are also unbelievably large. It’s been said by financial experts who understand the subject that many don’t purchase a card with an actual belief of winning. Zimbet is based on either the national or the British soccer divisions and involves predicting the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other foot, pamper the exceedingly rich of the country and travelers. Until recently, there was a very big sightseeing business, built on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The market anxiety and associated violence have cut into this trade.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s casinos, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and one armed bandits, and the Plumtree gambling den, which has just the slot machine games. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only slot machines. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the pair of which contain gaming tables, slot machines and video machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the two of which offer video poker machines and tables.

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

Given that the market has shrunk by more than forty percent in the past few years and with the connected poverty and violence that has come about, it is not well-known how well the tourist industry which supports Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the in the years to come. How many of the casinos will carry on until conditions get better is merely unknown.
