The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a risk at the current time, so you could envision that there would be little desire for visiting Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. In fact, it seems to be operating the other way, with the crucial economic circumstances leading to a larger desire to play, to try and discover a fast win, a way from the crisis.

For most of the locals subsisting on the abysmal nearby wages, there are two dominant forms of gaming, the national lotto and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else on the planet, there is a national lotto where the probabilities of hitting are remarkably tiny, but then the prizes are also unbelievably big. It’s been said by economists who study the concept that most don’t purchase a ticket with a real belief of hitting. Zimbet is built on one of the local or the United Kingston soccer leagues and involves predicting the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other shoe, look after the incredibly rich of the society and tourists. Up until not long ago, there was a exceptionally big tourist industry, centered on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The economic anxiety and associated conflict have carved into this market.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and slots, and the Plumtree gambling hall, which has only slot machines. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just slots. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the two of which have table games, slot machines and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the two of which offer slot machines and tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the above talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a pools system), there are a total of two horse racing complexes in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd municipality) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the market has shrunk by more than 40 percent in recent years and with the associated poverty and conflict that has resulted, it is not known how well the tourist industry which funds Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the near future. How many of them will be alive till conditions get better is basically not known.
