The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the moment, so you may think that there might be very little appetite for visiting Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. Actually, it seems to be working the other way around, with the crucial economic conditions creating a higher desire to play, to try and find a fast win, a way out of the difficulty.

For the majority of the locals surviving on the abysmal nearby money, there are two established forms of betting, the state lottery and Zimbet. Just as with almost everywhere else in the world, there is a national lottery where the probabilities of succeeding are surprisingly tiny, but then the winnings are also extremely large. It’s been said by financial experts who understand the concept that many do not purchase a ticket with a real assumption of profiting. Zimbet is based on either the national or the British football divisions and involves predicting the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other foot, pamper the extremely rich of the society and sightseers. Up till a short time ago, there was a considerably big vacationing business, centered on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The market anxiety and connected bloodshed have cut into this market.

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

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

Seeing as that the market has diminished by more than 40% in recent years and with the associated deprivation and conflict that has resulted, it is not understood how well the vacationing business which is the foundation for Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the next few years. How many of them will survive until conditions get better is simply not known.
