The act of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the moment, so you could envision that there might be little affinity for supporting Zimbabwe’s casinos. In fact, it seems to be operating the other way, with the awful market conditions leading to a larger eagerness to gamble, to try and discover a quick win, a way out of the problems.

For nearly all of the people surviving on the meager nearby money, there are two dominant forms of gaming, the national lotto and Zimbet. Just as with almost everywhere else in the world, there is a state lotto where the chances of hitting are unbelievably tiny, but then the jackpots are also remarkably big. It’s been said by financial experts who look at the situation that the lion’s share do not purchase a ticket with the rational expectation of hitting. Zimbet is centered on one of the national or the United Kingston football divisions and involves predicting the results of future games.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other hand, pamper the astonishingly rich of the country and travelers. Up till recently, there was a incredibly large sightseeing industry, based on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The economic collapse and connected bloodshed have cut into this trade.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s casinos, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and slots, and the Plumtree Casino, 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 contain table games, slots and electronic 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 table games.

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

Seeing as that the market has shrunk by more than 40% in the past few years and with the associated deprivation and crime that has arisen, it isn’t well-known how healthy the vacationing industry which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the near future. How many of them will be alive till things improve is simply not known.
