The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the current time, so you could think that there might be little affinity for visiting Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. Actually, it appears to be functioning the other way, with the awful market conditions leading to a higher eagerness to gamble, to attempt to discover a quick win, a way from the situation.

For almost all of the people surviving on the abysmal local money, there are two established forms of gambling, the state lotto and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else on the planet, there is a state lotto where the chances of succeeding are extremely tiny, but then the jackpots are also unbelievably large. It’s been said by economists who study the situation that many don’t purchase a ticket with a real belief of winning. Zimbet is based on either the national or the United Kingston football divisions and involves determining the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other shoe, cater to the exceedingly rich of the society and vacationers. Up until a short time ago, there was a very substantial tourist business, founded on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The market collapse and associated violence have carved into this trade.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, 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 Casino, which has only slot machines. 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, the pair of which offer table games, slot machines and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the pair of which has gaming machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the aforementioned mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a parimutuel betting 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.

Since the market has contracted by more than 40% in recent years and with the connected deprivation and crime that has arisen, it is not known how healthy the sightseeing industry which funds Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the near future. How many of them will still be around till things improve is merely not known.
