The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the current time, so you may imagine that there might be little affinity for patronizing Zimbabwe’s casinos. Actually, it seems to be functioning the other way, with the awful economic conditions leading to a higher ambition to bet, to attempt to find a quick win, a way out of the situation.

For the majority of the people subsisting on the tiny nearby wages, there are two established types of gaming, the national lottery and Zimbet. Just as with practically everywhere else on the planet, there is a state lottery where the probabilities of winning are unbelievably small, but then the prizes are also remarkably big. It’s been said by market analysts who study the subject that the lion’s share don’t purchase a ticket with the rational expectation of winning. Zimbet is founded on either the local or the UK football divisions and involves predicting the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s casinos, on the other foot, mollycoddle the astonishingly rich of the society and travelers. Up until a short time ago, there was a exceptionally substantial sightseeing industry, founded on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The market collapse and connected crime have cut into this trade.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s casinos, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and slots, and the Plumtree Casino, which has just the slot machine games. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only slot machines. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the two of which contain gaming tables, slots 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 table games.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s casinos and the aforementioned mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a parimutuel betting system), there are a total of 2 horse racing complexes in the country: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Given that the economy has contracted by beyond forty percent in the past few years and with the connected poverty and bloodshed that has cropped up, it is not understood how well the vacationing industry which is the foundation for Zimbabwe’s casinos will do in the next few years. How many of the casinos will be alive until things improve is basically unknown.
