The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the moment, so you could imagine that there would be very little affinity for patronizing Zimbabwe’s casinos. In fact, it appears to be functioning the other way, with the crucial economic circumstances leading to a higher desire to bet, to try and locate a fast win, a way out of the situation.

For most of the people living on the tiny local earnings, there are two established forms of wagering, the state lotto and Zimbet. Just as with most everywhere else on the planet, there is a national lottery where the odds of profiting are remarkably small, but then the winnings are also surprisingly large. It’s been said by financial experts who look at the idea that the majority do not purchase a card with the rational belief of winning. Zimbet is built on one of the national or the UK football divisions and involves determining the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other hand, mollycoddle the very rich of the nation and tourists. Up till recently, there was a very substantial sightseeing business, founded on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The market woes and connected crime have carved into this market.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and slots, and the Plumtree gambling den, 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, both of which offer gaming tables, one armed bandits and video machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the two of which has gaming machines and table games.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the aforestated mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a parimutuel betting system), there is a total of 2 horse racing tracks in the nation: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second municipality) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the market has diminished by more than 40 percent in the past few years and with the connected deprivation and bloodshed that has resulted, it is not understood how well the vacationing business which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the in the years to come. How many of them will survive till conditions get better is simply not known.
