The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the current time, so you may think that there might be very little desire for visiting Zimbabwe’s casinos. Actually, it appears to be working the other way around, with the atrocious market conditions creating a higher desire to play, to try and discover a quick win, a way out of the situation.

For almost all of the locals living on the meager local earnings, there are 2 popular types of gaming, the state lottery and Zimbet. As with most everywhere else in the world, there is a national lottery where the odds of winning are unbelievably tiny, but then the jackpots are also unbelievably big. It’s been said by market analysts who study the idea that the lion’s share do not buy a ticket with a real expectation of winning. Zimbet is based on one of the domestic or the English soccer leagues and involves predicting the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other foot, mollycoddle the extremely rich of the state and sightseers. Until a short while ago, there was a very large vacationing business, based on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The economic woes and connected violence have carved into this market.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five 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 only one armed bandits. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the two of which offer gaming tables, slots and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, both of which offer video poker machines and tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the previously talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a parimutuel betting system), there is a total of two horse racing tracks in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Given that the economy has contracted by more than 40 percent in recent years and with the associated deprivation and violence that has resulted, it is not known how well the sightseeing industry which funds Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the in the years to come. How many of the casinos will still be around until conditions get better is simply unknown.
