The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the moment, so you may imagine that there would be very little appetite for going to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. In reality, it seems to be operating the other way around, with the desperate market conditions creating a bigger desire to gamble, to try and find a quick win, a way from the difficulty.

For almost all of the citizens surviving on the meager nearby wages, there are 2 dominant types of gambling, the national lotto and Zimbet. As with most everywhere else on the planet, there is a national lottery where the probabilities of succeeding are surprisingly low, but then the jackpots are also remarkably large. It’s been said by economists who understand the subject that the majority do not purchase a ticket with an actual belief of profiting. Zimbet is based on one of the domestic or the British soccer divisions and involves determining the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other foot, look after the incredibly rich of the state and travelers. Up till a short while ago, there was a considerably large vacationing business, founded on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The economic woes and connected crime have carved into this market.

Among 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 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, the two of which have table games, one armed bandits and video machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the two of which offer video poker machines and tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls and the above talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a parimutuel betting system), there is a total of 2 horse racing tracks in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd metropolis) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the economy has shrunk by beyond forty percent in recent years and with the connected poverty and bloodshed that has resulted, it is not known how well the sightseeing industry which supports Zimbabwe’s gambling dens will do in the next few years. How many of the casinos will survive until things improve is simply unknown.
