The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the moment, so you could imagine that there would be very little affinity for supporting Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. Actually, it appears to be working the opposite way, with the awful economic circumstances creating a larger ambition to bet, to attempt to discover a fast win, a way out of the problems.

For most of the locals living on the tiny local wages, there are two established forms of gaming, the state lotto and Zimbet. Just as with practically everywhere else in the world, there is a state lotto where the probabilities of hitting are remarkably tiny, but then the prizes are also unbelievably high. It’s been said by market analysts who study the situation that the majority don’t buy a ticket with the rational expectation of hitting. Zimbet is centered on one of the domestic or the UK soccer leagues and involves determining the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other hand, pamper the exceedingly rich of the nation and travelers. Until not long ago, there was a incredibly substantial vacationing industry, based on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The market collapse and associated conflict have cut into this market.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and one armed bandits, and the Plumtree gambling hall, which has just the slots. 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 pair of which have table games, slots and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, both of which have video poker machines and tables.

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

Seeing as that the market has shrunk by beyond 40 percent in recent years and with the connected deprivation and conflict that has resulted, it isn’t known how healthy the vacationing industry which funds Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the next few years. How many of them will carry on until conditions improve is basically unknown.
