The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the moment, so you might imagine that there might be little desire for going to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. Actually, it appears to be operating the other way, with the crucial economic conditions leading to a bigger ambition to bet, to attempt to locate a fast win, a way out of the crisis.

For most of the people surviving on the abysmal local wages, there are 2 popular forms of gambling, the national lottery and Zimbet. As with practically everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lottery where the probabilities of profiting are remarkably tiny, but then the jackpots are also extremely big. It’s been said by economists who understand the situation that most don’t buy a ticket with a real assumption of profiting. Zimbet is founded on one of the national or the British soccer leagues and involves predicting the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other foot, look after the exceedingly rich of the state and vacationers. Until a short while ago, there was a incredibly big sightseeing industry, centered on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The market anxiety and connected violence have cut into this market.

Among 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 only slot machines. 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 gaming tables, slot machines and video machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, both of which has slot machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls and the previously mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a pools system), there are a total of 2 horse racing complexes in the nation: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd municipality) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the economy has shrunk by more than 40 percent in recent years and with the associated poverty and bloodshed that has cropped up, it is not well-known how healthy the sightseeing industry which is the foundation for Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the near future. How many of the casinos will carry on until things get better is simply not known.
