The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the current time, so you might imagine that there would be very little desire for patronizing Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. Actually, it seems to be functioning the other way around, with the awful market conditions leading to a larger ambition to wager, to attempt to find a quick win, a way from the problems.

For the majority of the citizens subsisting on the meager local earnings, there are 2 dominant types of betting, the national lottery and Zimbet. Just as with practically everywhere else in the world, there is a national lottery where the odds of profiting are unbelievably tiny, but then the winnings are also very high. It’s been said by financial experts who look at the situation that most do not purchase a ticket with a real belief of winning. Zimbet is founded on one of the domestic or the English football leagues and involves determining the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, on the other shoe, look after the extremely rich of the society and tourists. Up till recently, there was a exceptionally big sightseeing business, based on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The market anxiety and connected violence have carved into this market.

Among Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and one armed bandits, and the Plumtree Casino, which has only slot machines. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only one armed bandits. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the pair of which contain table games, slot machines and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the pair of which offer video poker machines and blackjack, roulette, and craps tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling halls and the above mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a parimutuel betting system), there are also two horse racing complexes in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second metropolis) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the market has diminished by more than forty percent in the past few years and with the associated deprivation and violence that has arisen, it is not known how healthy the vacationing industry which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the near future. How many of them will carry through until conditions improve is merely not known.
