The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the moment, so you might think that there would be little desire for going to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. In reality, it seems to be working the other way around, with the desperate economic circumstances leading to a larger eagerness to bet, to attempt to locate a quick win, a way from the situation.

For many of the people living on the meager local wages, there are two established styles of betting, the state lottery and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else in the world, there is a state lotto where the probabilities of succeeding are unbelievably small, but then the jackpots are also extremely large. It’s been said by economists who understand the concept that most don’t purchase a card with a real assumption of hitting. Zimbet is based on one of the domestic or the United Kingston soccer leagues and involves determining the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other hand, pamper the very rich of the nation and vacationers. Up till not long ago, there was a incredibly large vacationing business, built on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic woes and associated violence have cut into this market.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s casinos, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and slot machines, and the Plumtree gambling hall, which has only 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, the two of which offer gaming tables, one armed bandits and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, each of which offer gaming machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls and the above alluded to lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a parimutuel betting system), there are a total of two horse racing tracks in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd municipality) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Given that the economy has shrunk by beyond forty percent in recent years and with the associated poverty and bloodshed that has arisen, it isn’t well-known how healthy the vacationing business which funds Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the next few years. How many of the casinos will survive till conditions improve is basically unknown.
